CTS #81

Are you ready for some mud run pics?  Ha ha!  Well, you'll have to wait until after I share this week's awesome challenge with you.  We are joining forces with Fusion this week to give you a super cool challenge.  As with Fusion's normal challenges, you can use just the picture, just the sketch, or a fusion of the two.  Our team all did a fusion of the two challenges and if you want to play along with us at CAS(E) this Sketch, you need to at least use the sketch but we thought it would be fun to offer you a little extra inspiration this week.  Ready to see it?

Aren't they perfect together?  Here's my creation:

I just love this goose (duck?) from Avery Elle and was just dying to get him on a card.  I thought he'd be perfect for this challenge.  I found a gorgeous piece of cork patterned paper in my stash, layered on a gold banner with a gold hexagon embellished vellum banner on top.  I stamped and embossed my sentiment and added a couple stars.  Simple but SO cute!  I hope you like it!

This week's challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch is a little shorter than normal since we are ending on Wednesday to coordinated with Fusion so get your cards in and don't forget to link up to both challenges!

Now, for the mud run.  I had a blast but, WOW, I have some serious battle scars.  Ha ha!  Here are a couple pics:



We got a little dirty.  Ha ha!  Hope you have a great day and I'll see you over at CAS(E) this Sketch!

  6. Super-love your scene of the goose looking to the sky and "wishing big" ... really clever!! Thanks for posting your before and after pics! I've always thought a mud run would be fun, aside from the fact that I don't run. Hmm.
