CFC88 - Love Letters


For this week's CAS-ual Friday challenge, to use letters creatively.

cfc88

After I saw some of the amazingly creative entries, I had almost decided not to play along this week. But then I had a brainstorm - the crosses are the 't' from Stampin' Up's Contempo Alphabet, stamped in Early Espresso.

I used a large circle mask to create the hill, a small circle mask to create the sun and a Michael's sentiment.

I love this new Lemongrass cardstock I got from Avery Elle - it's a wonderfully fresh yellowy green - perfect for Easter and spring!

ETA - this card was chosen as a CFC Favourite! So exciting!

Absolutely beautiful! I sure wish that I had brain storms like you have! The SU letter 't' does make a perfect shaker style cross. This lemon grass paper truly is to die for!
