Customized Chevrons

Shoes in the kitchen, jeans on the floor. Basketballs lying at the back door. Living room carpet shows signs of wear. The fridge and the cupboards are constantly bare. The toilet seat is up, it's stuck that way. The sports on TV blare all day. Racetracks, footballs, all kinds of toys. How did you guess, I'm the mother of boys... ~Author Unknown


CAS-ual Fridays has a cool new challenge up: Long and Short: Create a card or project with a long side and short side (3 x 6, 4 x 8, etc. inches). There is also a very exciting announcement that you won't want to miss either! This week's sponsor is CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, and there is so much inspiration from the Girl Fridays on the Blog.

I used the really graphic and fun open chevron image from the newly released Rad set to create a bright, masculine birthday card. The greeting comes from the set called Woot Woot. I colored in the chevrons and added the horizontal line through each set.

Today's Tip: Customize a stamped image with marker.
