CAS Anything Goes!

They say that age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping it from creeping down into your body.

Good morning my crafty peeps!
Not only am I tardy getting this posted but I have been pretty much AWOL from my blog for a bit. But very little crafting has been taking place for me these past weeks! It hasn't been intentional. January is always a hectic month for our household as we try to reestablish routines disrupted by the holiday schedule. 

I finally sat down last night and wrote myself a daily routine list - It was something I really needed to do as I seem to be running around each day trying to fit everything in, only to hit that point of the day when I have to stop. Then I look around and wonder what the heck I did with all my time because my to do list does not appear to be any shorter than when I started!

The perpetual spinning of wheel in the mud bog. Lots of energy being expended but no forward momentum.

Add to this - my mojo decided  to head south for vacation too so I have been trying to track it down and drag it back home where it belongs! LOL

I am actually not scheduled for this week at the Outlawz, but this is the last post for my dear CAS Sistah Charlene as she is headed off on a new adventure, both personally and artistically and I wish her much luck in this new endeavor.

We also have had a few other changes, one of which is the addition of a monthly prize specially for our CAS Challenge.

So this week the challenge at The Outlawz is Anything Goes which is perfect becuase I needed a fast birthday card for a co worker birthday.
This is simple CAS with no layers, direct to cs stamping with the imaged colored with watercolor pencils and a blender pen.
