CCC #60 & Simon Says Anything Goes



Time for this week's CASology Cue Card!

I always think it is so fantastic that the Canada Day holiday and Independence Day holiday are only 4 days apart.  Perfect timing for this week's Cue Card:




Although Canada Day was July 1st, I had my card ready ahead of time.
For my card I grabbed a Canadian Maple leaf shape from the Silhouette Design Store and used my Silhouette to cut it out. Using the rule of thirds I stamped three fireworks images on my card base for the leaf to sit on top of. I am also submitting this card to the Simon Says Anything Goes challenge.




Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.



Tracey McNeely (that's me)

I can't wait to see what FIREWORKS means to you!

Cardstock:  White, Pure Poppy (Papertrey Ink)

My goodness, have I ever missed a LOT from you, Tracey, including your great news about the Fresh Squeezed DT! Way to go! That should be FUN! I've just browsed through all that I've missed...loved the 'you are my sunshine' card, PTI's MIM and blog hop cards, the holiday cards (so nice), oh, and the pretty color Q card with the lavender and aqua...almost hate to mention just those few...they're all so very nice! I've survived my busiest part of summer, so hopefully I can stay caught up now! Sure have missed crafting and visiting!

Hi Tracey, and Happy Canada Day! I hope you had a fun day. Your card is perfectly WONDERFUL and a perfect take on the cue this week!

Fabulous card, Tracey! My daughter and oldest son went with my husband to see the fireworks at the lake last night. I willingly stayed home with my younger son-- but we could hear them from our place!
Happy Belated Canada Day!
