Clean and Simple Monday - CAS119

Happy Monday...I know, I know...I'm trying to be positive!  :-)

This week's CAS Challenge on SCS (CAS119) is an inspiration challenge based on the word "GIFT".   I thought about that one for awhile and decided the most special gifts are friends.  I think as we get older, we appreciate them more because we realize how rare real friendships are. 

We have dear friends who have been a part of our lives for many years.  They are the kind of friends you could call in the middle of the night and they would be right there for you.  The male half of this lovely pair has a birthday soon so he'll be getting this one.



The sentiment is on the inside.  I used the rectangle die to cut a window then a larger die to cut the frame (had to trim it a bit).  Scor-Pal was used to make the horizontal/vertical scores.

Linking this on Michelle's Make it Monday Linky Party...it's fun, no pressure. Just link up what you've made!

Supply List: 
Paper -  Papertrey Ink Kraft, Black
Ink - Versafine
Accessories - Scor-Pal, Button, heavy duty thread

                                                                   
Pin It!

Hi Charlene

Oh, fabulous masculine card!

Clever the way you have cut the window to see the sentiment on the inside.

The score lines and button give a great effect.

Thank you for sharing with us at Make It Monday this week.

Michelle :-)

Don't forget......... if you leave a comment on another entry, mention that you saw their card on "Make It Monday" for a chance at second prize. The more entries you comment on the more chance you have of winning.
