CTS #41!

I did it!  I made a card that doesn't have "hello" on it anywhere.  Are you impressed?  I'm feeling a tad bit of withdraw but I love my card so I'm doing alright.  ;)  Are you ready to see the sketch for the week?  Here's CAS(E) this Sketch #41:


I swear that I had a great idea in mind when I made this sketch but somehow, I couldn't remember what it was.  I'm beginning to think that I like to create sketches that stump everyone including myself.  Ha ha...maybe I should call it, "inspiring others to think outside the box"?  Better?  Anyway, here's my card for the week.  I actually LOVE how it turned out and I had been dying to use my Clear & Simple coffee set since I got it.

The funky shape behind the coffee cup is from the Lil' Inkers extra small and small bow dies.  I just used a portion of the die cut and layered them to imitate the shape on the sketch.  I think my original intent with the sketch was to make a Silhouette cut with words in the shape of the banner.  That didn't inspire me today but coffee never fails to inspire.  ;)  I hope you like my card and will come join us for Sketch #41 at CAS(E) this Sketch!

We had a blast at the fair.  There is nothing like the Iowa State Fair.  WOW!  Here's a quick pic of my littlest showing off his new hat and the craft he made at the John Deere tent.  Nothing runs like a Deere, you know.


  1. Adorable funky shape behind the coffee cup, and the background is L.O.V.E!

  2. That BG paper steals the show. I LOVE it. Actually your image works so perfectly with it. Great card Chrissy.

  3. Hello! So much fun that you went with the coffee lol, and I'm so pleased that you are able to challenge us, it's going to be a great week!

  4. Very cool card! Love the idea of using the bow dies in a new way!

  5. Love this latte card! The background is fab! And the bow tie is excellent for this sketch. Aw, how cute is your wee darling! And he's following in your footsteps with his love of crafts! x
