** Scroll down for my CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!  It is an amazing challenge this week!  You won't want to miss it!**


 
I can't believe it's already World Card Making Day!  It seems like yesterday when I decided to enter 5 cards in to last years contest.  I was completely blown away when one of my cards was chosen as a winner in the Thank You category.  Today, several of last years winners are getting together for a little WCMD blog hop.  I am so excited to be getting together with all the girls again!  So lets get started!  Here is my card...

I used a sentiment and frame stamp from Avery Elle.  I adore this set and love that some of there sets come with free .studio files for the Cameo.

Here is just a quick little tip on how I keep these frames....I cut out a whole 12 x12 sheet of the frame file at once....

And then I store the stack in the back of the AE stamp set.  It saves so much time!
