Time Flies; Love Lasts...Time Out Challenge #5, CAS-ual Fridays #131: Three Thirds

 Hello once again,

What a wonderful Victoria Day Monday I had....cleaning, crafting, more cleaning, more crafting and the bonus:  a revamped entry way that has me smiling!  Amazing what a wall shelf and wall hooks can do to make teensy space less cramped.  Next, some new floor mats...

Two cards to share before I head to work, based on the charming theme over at TIME OUT Challenge #5: Time Flies; Love Lasts , where we're invited to use the entire phrase, parts of the phrase, or individual words.  Of course, the temptation to use one - or several *grin*  - of my amazing butterfly stamps and dies was high, but Mr. Mojo decided to be innovative.  Sort of.  Besides, I have other things stamps/dies needing attention, sooooo

My first card focuses on the word "time", as well as the 'concept' of love lasting, with the phrase "Once upon a time" on my sweet little typewriter stamp. Inside, reads "they lived happily ever after."  It's a mini card...yayyy for the minis!


For my second card, I pulled out my paper airplane and XOXO dies, along with some stars and mini heart, to convey the 'flies' and 'love' from the phrase.  I imagine this to be a 'missing you' or 'thinking of you' or 'love your forever' card...

I 'think' it fits the elements for CAS-UAL Fridays #131 - Three Thirds, so I'm entering it there, as well.


Hmmm...another idea for TIME OUT just pinged...I may be back later...

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

    Clean, crisp, creative and cute as a bug's ear! The 'mini' size really works for these images! Mr Mojo is definitely in prime form! The typewriter is awesome and such an innovative way to craft up some happy wishes, while the paper airplane will definitely be soaring to the podium!
