Make Some Noise


Driving any sort of distance with the two boys, I often hear phrases such as "Turn it up!" "Oh yeah, crank it!" After reminding them to politely say please along with these commands, I accommodate their wishes and listen to them sing right along to the country songs. It is amazing how they can remember words to most every tune, yet they have a difficult time remembering basic math sums...Those boys...



I'm excited and honored to join the fine ladies at CAS-ual Fridays again, and this time around we are looking for some boy cards or masculine cards! I tend to gravitate towards single layer cards when creating for the guys, and today's was no exception. I pulled out the funky circle design from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Big Thanks and with select masking created an old style radio volume display. The sentiment combination came from Woot Woot!

I hope you get a chance to link up your clean and simple boy or masculine creation for your chance to win a fabulous prize offered by Simon Says Stamps and to be a guest designer at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!

Boy, I didn't realize its been a while since I posted... Time flies!
