This first card is a little out of my comfort zone. It's a little more CAS than my typical cards. What do you think -- too simple?

Well, I'm going to take the plunge and link it up to the following challenges. Heck, if I've stepped out of my zone, I might as my dive into the pool... right?!

Parting Thoughts

Well, if you're a college basketball fan, it's Christmas in March! Count me in! Yep, I'm watching the Spartans and the Bulldogs as I type. Hope it's a great dance for your favorite team.  :)

Mar. 1 - Mar. 21
Tomorrow is the deadline to link up a card for our March Words 2 Scrap By challenge. This month's words are weather-related: In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb. Our challenge hostess Annie is offering up a $15 prize. Hope you can find a little time to play along.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
