CAS-ual Friday challenge #36

Happy Friday! Today I decided to play along with CAS-ual Friday's challenge. And it was a fun one!


The project has to be black and white...and nothing else! This is all because tomorrow is penguin awareness day. Who knew? Here's my clean and simple, black and white card...


Both stamps are from Papertrey Ink. I love that oval background stamp. And somebody needs to tell me to STEP AWAY from the baker's twine. I just got a bunch of new colors from The Twinery and that's all I use right now!!!


And a black button and some black pearls to round out the card. 



Hope you have something awesome planned for this weekend. It's supposed to rain tomorrow, my son has basketball pictures, my good girlfriend is having a 40th birthday party Saturday night and the NINERS play football on Sunday! It's going to be a good weekend!

Thanks for stopping by today!

WOW! I LOVE the black and white twine! I MUST get some.... Twinery, huh? I'm going to google them. Another beautiful card, Mara!

I was hosting the running club run tomorrow. I just cancelled the run. No sense having everyone drive down here just to run in the rain. They can run in the rain at home and be that much closer to a hot shower afterwards. hehe.

Have a great weekend, Mara!

This is absolutely stunning. And, keep up with the twine. I love that stuff. I am wondering which background stamp you used? Is it PTI? Such a great job on this challenge. (P.S.--You don't happen to live in So. Cal, do you?)
