CFC #128: Later 'Gator



We have some sad good-byes to fellow teammates on the horizon in the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge since the end of the term is coming up. Before that happens, though, we have one last challenge, and this one is to make a long card (2x4, 4x6, etc). The challenge is only one week long this time, so don't delay!

The talented winner will receive a prize from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!



I'm not a fan of drama or mushy good-byes, so I have to keep things light-hearted here. Later 'gator came to mind, so I cut an alligator on the Silhouette.



He's stamped in a casual manner with CAS-ual Fridays zig-zags. The card is indeed long, clocking in at 6" x 12".


The triangle patterned paper I. CAN'T. PUT. DOWN. and have seriously used it on the last 5 projects I've made. It's from the AC Lucky Charm line. So fun and fresh. The card base is from the same line too. Love the yellow with white polka dots on the back.

You will see a lot of this yellow/aqua paper in the future.

I own many, many sheets of this paper.

If anyone cares, take a guess of how many sheets in the comments and I will let you know if you are close.

Anyway, I can't wait to see your long creations in the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge gallery! Stop by to see some inspiration from the Design Team, too. Thanks so much for looking!

    1. Deepti, you are actually the closest so far, but I am not THAT nutty. Whew, right?!?

      And I better go re-write my post a little. I didn't mean to say that my term was ending, just that it's ending in general and I'm going to have to say good-bye to a lot of super-talented, amazing teammates. I'm still going to be here with CAS-ual Fridays : )

  9. Well I don't know about you, but for me yellow is a color I always need at least a bit of. And there are so many tones - hard to find a good one. So I'll guess you bougt 10. As for the gator - stamping on him with that pattern = genius!!! Question... know when the next W and W stamps will be releasing? Hoping to place an order and bring it back with me when I visit MI in March.

  12. A mini PL is good! Sometimes I wish I started PL a little bit later so I can get the smaller albums and page protectors. 12x12 is more time consuming. PL is so different from cards. It's definitely worth it since it's yours to keep! I do PL only because our family rarely print our photos now. Plus I've always kept a diary and I would always skip days and months. PL keeps me on track :D

    1. You are getting much closer Anita, but I am apparently crazier than you think I am. I have an unfinished basement which has lots and lots of metal shelving : ) When we ever move to a new house the movers will undoubtedly give me some strange looks.
