X's and O's

Hello Everyone,

Well here I am all chipper and bright after a good six hour rest.. Not enough but it does get me through the day.. So for this card I am playing with CAS-ology and Freshly Made Sketches.

Lots and lots of white space with graphic elements.
It is hard to see along with the glittery O is the 'xo' strip which
is also glittery.

The sketch makes for a perfect clean and graphic card.
The stitched rectangle element frames the main focal point.
I am loving the sparkle from the letter 'O'.
Challenges Entering: 


I have a party to plan for my son's class Valentines Day gathering tomorrow. I don't know why but I am not stressed at all that I haven't started preparations yet.. Well that isn't entirely true I have the plan, I have a game picked out and ready to play. All I need to do is shop and make the goodie bags. Umm.. Maybe I should be stressing out.. I heard a saying that goes something like: Don't rush me, I'm procrastinating..

On that note I am off to the store with list in hand. Thank you again for stopping and we will see you soon at TheGrandStampede!

All the Best,
