CAS Challenge - Teal's the Deal

HWNSNBP and I had the day off today and he was nice enough to take me a couple of places while we did some errands this morning.  One of those places was AC Moore.  There was a coupon in the Sunday paper for 50% off one item today...... and I had two of them.   I found these cute little bird brads and had to have them.  It helps having HWNSNBP along when you have two coupons because he can also use one - and if I'm really lucky, he'll actually pay for the item too!  Dare I tell you that I also talked the cashier into letting me use a 40% off coupon too.  She quietly rang me up twice to do so.  Wasn't that kind of her!  I'll show you another time what else I got.

Today's CAS (Clean and Simple) Challenge was to use Teal.  I punched out some 1/4" squares from Taken With Teal, Bermuda Bay, and Cool Caribbean - all shades of teal to me.  This wasn't as hard as it may look.  I put the squares into my Xyron sticker maker which meant no gluing and lined them up using post-its and the graph from my work space.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and it's stamped in Taken With Teal.

I added a strip of Cool Caribbean that I used the Spiral Hole punch on.  I must admit it was hard to leave the background solid, but I did.  Without ribbon, I think this can be for a guy or a gal.  What do you think?


  1. If that isn't the cutest little brad!! The detail photo made me think bathroom, with the little blue mosaic tiles. Definitely this would suit anyone, and bring a smile to their face.

  2. too cute for words. i may have to case, but i don't know if i have the patience for all the little squares!


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
