CFC20 and WMC68

Hi everyone!

It's a late Saturday night for me...My 2 little guys, and my hubby, are already fast asleep. That, of course, means I get to play! :)

When I saw the CAS-ual Fridays latest challenge, I thought it would be cute to work on a mini card. (You can find the details for the challenge here.) I must've thought about what to do for hours while trying to fall asleep last night and then, all of a sudden, it came to me! And then, while I was checking my different blogs this evening, I realized that the Wee Memories challenge would work for the idea that I'd come up with last night, too! (You can find the details for that challenge here.) There were no words for how excited I was when I realized I'd get to play, in a quiet house, with a card already in mind, that would work for 2 challenges! And, indeed, the crafting tonight went quickly. Maybe 30 minutes--tops!

Here's my card:
I started out with kraft-colored cardstock and I sized it to 4x4. Then, I took white cardstock and stamped my music cover-a-card stamp by Impression Obsessions (which I got on clearance about 2 years ago) with vintage photo distress ink. Then, I distressed the image with tea dye, vintage photo, and barn door distress ink. I mounted that on the card. For the sentiment, I actually hand wrote it using a marker and added some vintage photo distress ink to the edges. I knew I had that heart button and I laced some jute through it and adhered it with glossy accents. Then, I cut a notch in it for the banner and adhered it with foam adhesive. Easy, cute card...and I got my fingers inky! That's a great night for me! :)

Hope everyone gets to play a bit on Sunday!
