CTS #145

Hi, you guys!  I know the blog has been a little quiet this week but that's because I have some visitors from NY in the house!  Woo hoo!  My mom and dad surprised me last week by letting me know they were coming out for a visit.  Can't beat that!  We've been having a great time all week exploring some of the things I've been meaning to check out since we moved to Iowa 10 years ago.  I'm a little slow going.  He he he.  So far, my favorite was the Grotto of the Redemption in West Bend, IA.  Talk about a cool place to check out.  WOW!  Here's a picture of my mom, dad, and all my boys. 

It's been fun having my mom in my craftroom with me also and I hope you enjoy my take on this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.  I had a good time with it!

I had this super cute 3x4 journaling card in my stash and thought it fit the sketch perfectly!  I added a little washi to cover up a part of the sentiment on the card that I didn't want since I wanted this to be a birthday card.  I added the card to this fun word background paper and finished my sentiment using a die cut from Brushstroke Birthday Greetings and some sticker letters. 

I hope you like my card for the challenge and will join us at CAS(E) this Sketch!  I'm off the Des Moines for the day!  Have a great one!


  1. LOVE the mixed font sentiments on your card! Wish I thought of that. And how wonderful to have your family in the house! Enjoy!
