What's Growing On?...CASology Week 202~Masculine, TIME OUT Challenge #59~Masculine with optional twist of mixed media

Hello,

We've just returned from one incredibly challenging bike race that where my husband competed and I officiated: 118km with 110 of those on gravel, including nasty ascents and steep descents! Glad he was the one on a bike and I, in a car, following various sized groups of the 115 competitors. Wildly applauding that the majority finished, upright and in tremendously good spirits.

Following quickly on the heels of this little' jaunt' is my husband's trek to Colorado Springs (yes, you read that right...lucky guy!) tomorrow through to next Monday to attend Elite National Commissaire course. While I don't envy him the classes and exam, I'm jealous that I can't tag along. Work! 'Nuff said.  Guess I'll just have to craft oodles while he's away...

Before I tackle laundry, help him pack and perform my home-made pizza sous chef duties, I'm sneaking in my *very* CAS card for CASology Week 202~Masculine


and TIME OUT Challenge #59~'Masculine with optional twist of mixed media' (how sweet that the challenge instructions are in pink! Makes me smile!)



Voila...about as easy-peasy as it gets.


I'm so glad you spent part of your day with me; your visit brings me immense joy!

Oh gosh, that's too bad that you can attend with your hubby. :( I hope you craft up a storm in his absence to help you feel better. This card is wonderfully CAS and funny! Made my smile for sure! That route sounded treacherous! Hope everyone made it okay. I have to say, I just saw the picture of that Aunt saying and I think that is one of the neatest things I've seen in a long time. So cute! Absolutely perfect and I'm sure that is "ezactly" the kind of aunty your are. Perfection! Hope you have a good week. Break will be here soon...Hugs!

Oh my, those bike races sound very intense Carol!! I think all my nails would be chewed off if I were watching or following or whatever! lol Not sure my nerves could handle it, but we do what we do for the loves of our lives don't we?! Your card is simply adorable! Love that it is masculine, but yet could be used for anyone. Such a cute pun too. Hugs, Brenda
