CAS(E) this Sketch #52!

A truly loverly sketch awaits at CTS #52! 
I was just a bit obsessed with using my Dear Lizzy 6x6 pad and had many versions of this card/sketch. But, just one teensy problem ..... I am somewhat challenged in using my patterned papers, though I love them so! I would normally be creating like crazy in the basement, but my mother is visiting from NC and our new fur baby has a way of requiring lots of love, snuggles and "clean up on aisle #4" attention!
Please join in the fun at CAE(E) this Sketch #52! We can't wait to see what you've created!

CAS(E) this Sketch #51

I am so happy to be back with CAS(E) this Sketch #51 - a lovely design by N@Ali! I decided that I should warm up the holiday stamps, preferably sometime before December! So.... be on the lookout for a few more holiday tags and/or cards!
Please join us in creating something beautiful for CTS #51!

Kitty Camouflage!

Here's the new addition to our family..... a Bengal/DSH, 11 week old love bug from Rock-n-Rescue (Thanks Juli)! What a bundle of energy! Guess I know what will be keeping us busy for the next few months/years!

CAS(E) this Sketch #50

It's time for CAS(E) this Sketch #50...... the 50th inspirational, beautiful, knock-your--creative-socks-off sketch! I used more of my rustic cream and kraft card stock, a PTI linen EP (so hard to photograph), a bargain MME stamp set ($1 from Marshall's....of all places!) and just a little bit 'o sparkle!

Please join us in creating with this incredibly versatile sketch! Perhaps it's time to break out the holiday stamps and do a bit more card and/or tag making!

Take Two: CTS #49

Here was my original design for CAS(E) this Sketch #49. However, I decided that it was not sufficiently "clean and simple", and there really wasn't nearly enough stamping going on! I employed Kelly Griglione's burlap technique here, and on my other CTS #49 card. Many thanks to Kelly for helping me to save a few crafting dollars!

CAS(E) this Sketch #49

Happy Fall y'all! Oh.... it has been SO lovely here- crisp nights and warm, sunny 70 degree days! My idea of perfect weather!

Here is my creation for CTS #49! We are so looking forward to your interpretation of Karolyn's beautiful sketch! It seems that I am not the only one who loves/prefers to create from a sketch as all of you have been contributing some a-mazing interpretations.... and making my privileged job of choosing one, or ten, that I love quite challenging! Keep 'em coming!

I've been spending some time in the craft area, attempting to organize. Of course, my darling spouse has his ideas as to how this space should be arranged, which doesn't necessarily line up with my plan! However, I definitely see a trip to Ikea in our future!
