This card is inspired by the sketch at MFT and the grid's center column at Tic Tac Toe. Its a clean and simple card so it will also make a visit to Challenge up your Life.
The stamps are from MFT -Festive Fireworks and Bitty Birthday Wishes heat embossed in gold. A small gold gem is added to the center of each firework burst.
Thanks for visiting.
On a personal note...
I am making the best of my weird sleep cycle as it seems this will be a long one. Its been going on for weeks this time. I've managed a little routine. I wake between 3-4 pm, then it takes about an hour for me to feel with it...I make dinner for hubs and myself...fortunately I have never been a breakfast food fan when I first wake.
Then after the cleaning up, its up to the crafty space and perhaps 1 load of laundry. I am trying to do 1 load a day or every other day instead of letting it pile up for a marathon 2 days of washing and folding. Our next meal is something light...maybe a wrap or a sandwich or a small frozen meal. Then hubs is off to bed around 2-3 am and I am up til 7 or 8 or when I am finally sleepy.
This is a great CAS card Cat - simple yet the coloured blocks do a great job of highlighting those firework stamps! It works in your patriotic choice of colours but I like that the design means the colours can be easily changed out too. Thanks for playing along with us over at TicTacToe Challenge this week!
love seeing your card in our TicTacToe Challenge!
It's a beautiful card to celebrate, Cat!
Hope your sleep patterns get better soon, my friend!
CAS perfection Cat...LOVE it! Hope the sleep pattern straightens out soon!! Hugs. :0)
This is the cutest thing, Cat! Sharp and clever. I think you were brilliant to come up with it for the sketch. The sleep cycle you're in is really hard to break. I know you've tried. I detested those nights I would still be awake when I could hear the neighborhood getting ready to go to work. I'm better now.
I LOVE these little squares with their starbursts, Cat! What a fantastic card! I can sympathize with Your sleep issues. About the time you get with the strange routine, it changes. My hat's off to you to take advantage of the awake times to create.
Such a cheery celebrate card, Cat!! I feel for you with the sleep issues - good luck with it!!
So clean and simple, but it is full of FUN! Sleep issues are no fun, hope it works itself out soon ;)
Love this fabulous CAS card Cat. The firework bursts look amazing in those coloured squares and I love your placement of the sentiment. Thank you for coming to play at Tic Tac Toe Challenge, Vicky x
A wonderful CAS celebratory card. I am impressed by your attitude about the sleep issues. I can only imagine what that would be like. I'm also amazed at your crafty mojo!
Beautifully Clean and Crisp sketch design, Cat:-) I love your added gems and red, white and blue color combo. TFS Hugs..Nancy
CAS and perfectly on point for both challenges! Really love the simplicity of it....
Hope your cycle can break and you can get back to a better schedule, even one closer to your hubby's would be great, I'm sure
Such a beautiful design. Many thanks for joining us at Challenge Up Your Life.
That is such a great interpretation of the sketch, love it. Sounds like you are doing the only thing you can do in relation to your sleep pattern. If you don't adjust to it you will just be miserable and your sleep will be worse xx
That is quite the schedule, my friend. Good you can make it work. I absolutely adore this card--perfection!
