CAS53 & LPSC54

Well Brandon did set his alarm for 12 this morning to do the CAS challenge today. One problem -- he didn't wake up, I did -- long enough to turn it off.

We have been shoveling snow -- and playing some too. They are predicting 5-10 more inches of snow Tuesday night into Wednesday. That probably means no school all week. I am looking at the bright side -- I get to spend time with my kids -- let's see if I make it until the end of the week :o)

We saw on the Little Paper Shop Blog that the challenge this week is a color challenge -- Red, White, and Black. So our cards work for that challenge too.

The first card is Brandon's. We both picked the Cinnamon Toothpicks box for inspiration. He thought that flavored toothpicks were an awesome idea. He wanted to use a piece of the candy that we are putting on his valentines for this challenge -- the red heart in the middle is chocolate krispy candy from the $1 store.

We created our cards at the same time, but he did this one completely by himself -- even choosing to do a 3" x 3" card. I don't think I would have used a black heart -- to morbid for me, but for a boy it makes perfect sense. I am a perfectionist and a control freak, and I struggle with taking over his projects, but I am learning to let go. He did a Fantastic job and I am truly PROUD of him.

great cards from Brandon and you too Corie! Love the color combo. I got that same candy to fill DH's Valentine treat bag. They're pretty good, I had to try them.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!

Love the second card:) The simplicity is pretty! And I love how you also decorate the inside. Many card makers don't even show the inside. Lovely card!
