LIM40, CAS143 - True Friend

Seems like forever since I've made a CAS card - in fact, I missed out playing on many of my favorite challenge blogs last week.  In an attempt to remedy this egregious error (does that make me sound smart?), here is my card for the CAS143 Sketch Challenge from SCS and the Less is More Challenge (Red and Orange).  All supplies used are from a muse|studio including the sentiment (On the Wing) and the leaves (Wild Rose).
Tomorrow will be a fun (please, oh please, be fun) excursion with the boys.  My man-sized 14-year old has grown out of nearly everything in the past few months.  No school tomorrow so it is time for a new winter coat along with new jeans, etc.  While he hates shopping he does love to eat so when I told him we'd eat at Schlotzsky's he was game to go.  Maybe (most certainly) I will drop by Michael's to check out the Martha Stewart new line of craft paint - mom needs to have something to look forward to too, right?

Beautiful! Fantastic color combination. Have fun tomorrow, I hope you can find something for yourself too! Shopping with boys doesn't have as much enjoyment as lets say, shopping with your girlfriends.

Those leaves are so pretty, and I love the sentiment! A true friend is a rare find, and you are one! Have fun shopping!

Fabulous card Michelle... and you sounded extremely smart... I had to look up that one as I'd never come across it before... I'll have to see when I can slip it into conversation sometime, so that I sound erudite!
Thanks so much
