Hey y'all! Happy Thursday, almost Friday! :)
Hope all is well?!...

Well, my kids have been out of school now since last Tuesday. It feels so nice not to have to rush in the mornings! Though, I'm no longer keeping much track of the days...which in return makes me all over the place! lol One sure thing is we always end up at the beach, so I really can't complain too much. ;)

Anyhow, I'm swinging in today with a card to share for the current Casology challenge.

Fast. Well, if you ask me a number of things can be fast. Sooo, I first thought about how fast time goes by...because well, doesn't time go by way too fast?! ;) But I really don't have too much of stamps that have to do with a clock, time, etc. So scratch that idea. 
Then I started looking at some more stamps that I have yet to use. I saw coffee and thought that could work. Sometimes coffee just isn't made fast enough, right?!...Or perhaps, you run out of coffee too fast?!...Or you drink your coffee way too fast?!...So, I think it works. ;) 

Yep. I kept things nice and simple. I wanted to be my card somewhat light/soft, so I chose a grey ink to stamp my image with. After, I used some colored pencils and just added a little touch of color here and there. Once done, I added some twine...which surprisingly, isn't white twine. lol I really did want to use white twine, though I pushed myself to use something other. ;) (I have too many supplies that have been sitting and not used...)

Well, that's all for me today! I'll be back tomorrow with some scheduled posts! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day! 


  1. What a fun card for CASology this week. Love your pink twine and softly colored design. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  2. Shelley a great interpretation of FAST. Yes time goes way to fast and yes coffee works on all counts you pointed out. Me I am not a morning person so on days I have to get going I need my coffee to work fast to get me on my feet! Thank you for sharing with us this week at CASology!

  10. Totally works, your interpretation! You wouldn't believe how fast I am in getting my morning coffee ready *grin* Your kids are out of school already? Here, the last day of school (well, for me, anyway...I'm a part-time teacher/part-time admin assistant) is June 30th, although I'll have to wrap up a few things the first part of July.
