Best Witches - PDCC102 and CFC23

TGIF and Best Witches to you!  I spent the day with my "lil buddy" - my Grandson, Trevor Patrick.  It was such a beautiful Fall day here in Chicago, and we went shopping and out to lunch. We got back home around 12:30 p.m. and I put him down for a nap.  I said "night night" and he laid right down.  All was quite for about 15 minutes and I thought "Wow....that was quick, he must have been really tired."  All of a sudden, I heard the door knob rattling to his room.  I jumped up and opened the door, and he looked up at me and said "hi".  The little guy climbed out of his crib! LOL

This card was created based off of this weeks color scheme at PDCC and CFC's challenge to create a clean And simple project using the quote as your inspiration OR use the quote as your sentiment.

This week CAS-ual Fridays is participating in a very special benefit blog hop for Julie Ranae - Operation Julie's Smile.  You can read more of Julie's story at the link given above.  Julie has given so much to the crafting world with her inspiration and kind words - if you can, please help Julie smile again. :D

Cardstock PTI and Bazzil, stamped image from Stampendous, Copics, and Baker's Twine from The Twinery. 

Off to post my card - thanks for taking a peek and have a super weekend!  Cathy xx :)
