CAS Glam...

Happy Saturday!

It's a good day here today. Weather is beautiful, and DH will be on his way home soon.  He flew out 9 days ago and met DS in Orlando. They've been zipping around Florida, following the St. Louis Cardinal's for Spring Training games.  It's going to be good to have him home again.

I'm sharing a CAS card that I made for a special lady.  I'm enclosing a great little gift pkg. of tissues, and the sentiment on the tissues says "If the shoe fits, buy one in every color".  I love how well my hand tied bow (Really Reasonable Ribbon) turned out!

Supplies: Cardstock: a muse (dots), DCWV (red), Xpress It Blending (white), Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Tombow Marker, Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy your weekend, and I'll be back on Monday with some Itty Bitty Blog Candy.

Hugs and blessings, my friends...
Patti J.

I love your card and that bow is perfect! Isn't RRR the best?
I know you will be thrilled to have your honey home, how fun he got to spend so much time with your son making memories.

LOVE IT!!! Love the red/black together and it is a CAS although it doesn't look like one!!! Have a safe trip up, hate that the flight has been delayed but that could change, who knows with the airlines!!!

Very classic creation, Patti.

Patti, My MIL moved here to Chapala about 2 mos. after we moved down to be near us. She had wonderful care here and Larry was able to be with every day at the end. We'll be taking her ashes to Texas at some point in the future to be buried next to her husband.

This is adorable, Patti...what a darling little shoe!!! Sounds like your hubby had a wonderful time in Flordia...I'm glad he will be home soon!!!

I know it's terrible to say ... but hasn't been wonderful to be home alone and do what you want??? Mine is going out of town in April, and I will miss him, but it will also be nice to not have to cook and do laundry so much! LOVE this clean and simple style Patti. And the jewel on top the shoe is so cute. Your friend will love it!
