CTS #360

Hello!!  How's everyone doing??  Is anyone else ready for some warmer weather?  ;)  I keep telling myself not to complain but it is really difficult and I'll just go with, I can't wait for spring to get here!  I'm totally ready for it.  I'm also ready to share the card I made with you for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge!  Here it is:


I had a great time with this sketch and instead of doing little items all floating around my sentiment, I went with lines taking up the same space. I had a fun time with this color combo and I hope you like the end result. I cut my papers on my trimmer at various widths and then added them to my card so they extend out on the card front at different lengths and then trimmed the excess all at once. Finally, I added this cute sentiment die from Simon Says Stamp cut in white. I love how it turned out! Here's a closer look:


Thanks so much for checking out my card today and I hope to see you over at CAS(E) this Sketch!

Good morning and happy almost Valentine's Day!  I hope you are having a great week so far.  I plan to go buy myself a coffee or something and I hope you will, "Treat Yo Self" also!  Sorry, I just LOVE Parks & Rec and couldn't help but throw that in there.  ;)  Something else I love?  A good sketch and we have one for you this week over at CAS(E) this Sketch!  Make sure you go check it out.  Here's what I created for my card this week:


I have been dying to use one of these mini stencils from Tim Holtz for awhile now and today was the perfect day. I inked it partially to make a banner and then got to stamping and coloring my cute little fox. I fussy cut my fox and popped him up at the edge of my banner with some foam squares. Finally, I added some silver stars. I can't find these guys anymore because I have been hoarding them for a LONG time but I linked to some orange puffy stars that I wish I would have had. They would have given this card just a little more impact but I love it anyway. Here's a closer look:



Thanks so much for checking out my card and take on the sketch this week.  I'll see you over at CAS(E) this Sketch.  You won't want to miss what the team created.  They are AMAZING!  Have a great day and...

Good morning!  It's another fun and chilly week here in Iowa.  I don't know about you but I am really ready for winter to be over.  Luckily, I've had some fun inspiration from CAS(E) this Sketch to keep be going all winter long.  This week's sketch is super fun and  I'm always amazed at how differently we all interpret sketches.  SO fun!  Well, here's my take on this week's sketch:


I had a blast with this sketch and I created a card that can be used for different occasions and can be a pretty gender neutral card. Can't beat that! I used my favorite Lil' Inker Designs die set to create the rectangle along the right side of the card and, unfortunately, it isn't available anymore so I linked to another rectangle set that might get a similar size...I hope. I did a little fussy cutting on this card to create a border around the It's Your Day die but otherwise, it is a pretty straight forward card. Here's a closer look:


Thanks so much for checking out my card! Make sure to join us at CAS(E) this Sketch to play along!

Good morning!  It's another fun and chilly week here in Iowa.  I don't know about you but I am really ready for winter to be over.  Luckily, I've had some fun inspiration from CAS(E) this Sketch to keep me going all winter long.  This week's sketch is super fun and I always have a great time with a sketch from Brian.  It is so fun to see the cards everyone makes from week to week.  I'm always amazed at how differently I the whole team interprets sketches.  SO fun!  Well, here's my take on this week's sketch:


I had a blast creating this card and I love the bold look I ended up getting. I just cut some black strips and then used this amazing die from Altenew to create a fun bloom. A simple sentiment finished it all off. Here's a closer look:


Thanks SO much for stopping by and hope you will join us at CAS(E) this Sketch.
