CAS all the way

I think I can count on one hand the number of times I have ever made a card where there is only a single piece of card stock......I seem to have lived through it quite well. I almost ......almost.....added a sentiment but I put the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" down and backed away!

This Clean and Simple card covers 4 challenges.....

Sweet Sunday - Sketch #70
Corrosive Challenge - Clean and Simple
Colour Dare - Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede and Old Olive
CAS-tastic Challenge - A Touch of Green

I had fun creating this for sure!!!

Grant's appointment went well - he does not have his arm immobilized in an upright position - YEAH!!!!!! The poor guy nearly fainted though through the procedure of getting the dressings off - he was just overly anxious and freaking himself out - he's more than willing to joke about it now. He'll be in this cast for 4 weeks before a half cast is on for another 3. Thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers - I ask for them to continue through these weeks of healing.

Thanks for stopping by - Blessings to all - Joan

Your card is lovely, but I really came here to see if there was an update on your son. So glad to hear he doesn't have to have his arm "suspended". :)

Love this fab CAS card, Joan!!

Thanks so much for joining us in this week's CAS-tastic Wednesday "Touch of Green" card challenge! Right, 'cuz, I'd never visit otherwise, lolololol!

Glad to hear that Grant doesn't need his arm immobilized ... yuck. A cast is the pits, especially in the summer.

Sending hugs!!

Joan your card is fabulous!Love the butterflies!
So glad to hear Grant only has to have a cast and not suspended in the air! A cast will be uncomfortable enough during the hot summer!
Hugs,Connie
