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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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 was on a major PTI Mini Blooms bender there for a while. That is, 'til my Bigger Blooms set arrived! However, the poor little things have been sorely neglected..... until now! So, here is my floral ode to CTS #48! Oh how I love this sketch- endless creative possibilities! Please join in the fun!
