CTS #138

Happy last Thursday of August!  Is that possible?  Wow, were did the summer go?  The boys and I have been busy getting back into the swing of school again.  We've been at it for almost two weeks and I think we may have found our groove.  Don't quote me on that though.  ;)  I am still trying to carve out my crafty time in all this schooling/activity madness but we are getting there.  Having all three boys busy with school work is a little different but my littlest is loving being an official big boy.  Ha ha!

I did get enough time in to craft up a card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  I hope you like it!

I went a little crazy with this card.  I started with a striped background paper and then created a blue and white birthday square with my Boxed Up Birthday Greeting Die.  I cut my square at an angle and attached it to my card base.  Then I stamped and embossed the sentiment from Party Pachyderms on a blue strip which I attached down the cut line.  I have a hard time with cards for guys but I think this will work!  Woo hoo!

I hope you enjoyed my take on the sketch and will join us at CAS(E) this Sketch.  Here's what I used today:


  1. Love how you pack so much into your day and still have craft time! Cute card.

  2. Cool, graphic and so fun, Chrissie ... the yellow and blue colour combo is fabulous! Anita :)

  3. Yellow and blue can build a unexpectedly striking harmony! Love your card! And thank you very much for your lovely and encouraging comments on my blog!
