CTS #69

Good morning!  I hope you guys are having a fabulous week so far.  We have been super busy in our house enjoying the warmer weather.  You know it was a cold winter when the 30's feel SO good.  ;)  Today we are supposed to be in the 50's and I think I just might attempt to take the boys on a bike ride/jog.  It's hard for me to exercise inside when it is finally warming up outside.  I just want to get out there!  I wanted to share with you a cute picture of my boys' creation yesterday:

SO CUTE!  They decided to make a little nest and I just loved how precise they were about it.  It reminded me of me lining things up on my cards and made me laugh.  I even got in trouble for bumping a pillow and making a corner less than perfect.  Ha ha!  The nest had to lose a few parts for bed time but it's back together and snug again this morning. 

I suppose I should share this week's CAS(E) this Sketch with you now.  Ha ha!  It's an awesome sketch from N@ Ali and I know you will love playing along with us.  Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

I used the stamp set from the Office Hours card kit over at Studio Calico.  I had a rough time with this card.  First, I used a rub on for the sentiment but you couldn't read it, then I popped up the sentiment but I put it on crooked.  UGH!  In the end, I'm fairly happy with my card but I wish I would have had the Soft Stone cardstock that I intended for this card and about a million other things.  We are our own worst critics, right?  Ha ha!

I hope you will join us and play along this week at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I'm going to try another crack it this sketch when my mojo decides to join me again.  Ha ha!  Thanks for checking me out and have a great weekend! Follow my blog with Bloglovin
