Happy September

Fall is approaching in the northern hemisphere, and Spring in the southern. Changes. I grew up with change. As a "Service Brat" change is pretty normal as I'm sure many others can attest. New schools, new friends, new bases, new countries... For me it was always a new adventure; not so sure my mom looked at it in quite the same way. She was a farm girl from northern Wisconsin. More changes in life are on the horizon for me I'm sure, but not today. It's just another day in paradise! I've got a couple of errands to run, so will cut to the chase.

Saw the new Cue Card over at CASology, and the new challenge up at AEIHeartU. Decided I could combine the two in a fun, CAS manner. See what you think


Challenge 28

Now, if this isn't suitably CAS for CASology, my feelings won't be hurt if it needs to be removed. My white space is blue on this one...



The blue base is a large scrap, possibly from Bazzil. The "notebook" paper is a portion of Adornit Sticker paper that I bought years ago, and I used my MFT notebook die. The Wish Big, and balloon stamp (and die) are from AE's Storybook set, and the Amy Tangerine pencil was colored with Copics and fussy cut. A scrap of orange vellum for the balloon just because orange goes so well with this blue. Versafine black ink. A bit of twine to finish the card. EZPZ lemon squeezy! Well, that's about it for me today, unless I get my act together later on (hahahahaha!!!!) Happy dances everyone.

Perfectly CAS in my opinion! I love the brilliant blue 'white space'- looks so happy paired with the pops of yellow! Sweet interpretation of 'write'!

Notebook paper as a background is one of my favorite things! I'm such a geek that way! I love how you've done this with a simple balloon and a simple sentiment. This is perfect!

Adorable, sweet and so perfect for a birthday celebration. I love your sweet single yellow balloon, just so cute with the yellow twine and pencil.

Love the little pencil writing on the notepaper, Bev. It's definitely CAS and wonderful, too.

Your use of blue is most certainly 'white' in a CAS sense, Bev, and this is downright gorgeous! Love how that pencil approaches from the side to add a bit of fun and finish off this birthday card in the sweetest way! So glad you could join us at CASology this week!

Anita in France said...

This is certainly CAS in my eyes, Bev ... and fabulous! Love the colour combo ... and how you've created the impression that the balloon and sentiment have just been drawn onto the notebook with the cool pencil ... it's brilliant! Missing you, mon amie! Hugs & bisous, bisous, Anita :)
