CTS #222

Good morning!  I hope you've checked out this morning's post over at CAS(E) this Sketch!  The challenge this week is great!  Of course, they always are!  If you are stopping by after seeing my card over there...thanks so much!  I'm flattered that you wanted to see how I made my crazy creation.  :)  You guys are awesome!

This week has been crazy and stormy.  Luckily, we have only had branches down, a broken basketball hoop, and a few bend uprights on a trampoline net.  So many people have trees down on houses and cars as well as power lines.  Driving through town yesterday looked like a war zone.  I swear, I felt like I was still in Florida and a hurricane had just gone through but I guess 70mph sustained winds will do that to a place.  Here's hoping that was the last of that.

Spending so much time in the basement has its perks.  I actually get cards made while ensuring the kids understand that everything is going to be ok.  They even settled down and crafted a bit too.  Anyway, one of the cards created during the storms includes this one for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch challenge.

This card is created with some stuff from the March Clique Kit called Play and the April Kit called Jellybean.  It started with this polka dot paper and added a black strip of paper popped up with foam tape to prop up my blue chipboard letters.  I then finished the sentiment with some alphabet stickers and finally, those amazing acrylic stars and some bling.  Super simple and fun!  Here's another look:

Thanks so much for stopping by and make sure you join us this week at CAS(E) this Sketch.


  1. Wonderful take on the sketch, Chrissy!

  2. Great CAS card... thank you for the tips. I hope the storms have passed. I moved to FL a week before Matthew. With no knowledge of hurricanes and a house directly on the water... it was scary. Hopefully this year will go better! Take care!


Thanks so much for commenting! I cherish each and every comment on my blog!
