CASology's Fifth Year Anniversary!!

Melissa, and her DT (past and present) are celebrating the Five Year Anniversary at CASology. I've loved CASology, and play as often as I can. Fun cue cards, fun team, fun CAS cards. Along with their 'regular' cue card this week, there's a sponsored hop with prizes going on. So head over, hop along, and make a card to help celebrate. All the details can be found on the CASology blog.



I've not had tons of time to create this week as DH is still recovering from some cellulitis, but in the early, early hours of the morning, I stole some crafty time. I've been experimenting with this design using various colors and decided that this card was 'worthy.' I actually like it quite much!


All the stamps are from one SSS set. The panel was cut with an AE die, and there's one bitty LF heart dipped in Delicata gold ink. I drew the balloons' strings. You may see other variations of this in the future. Congratulations, Melissa. What a wonderful accomplishment!

So soft and pretty. The 'thin font' of the sentiment is perfect for the colors. Love how you placed the b-day greeting n top of the balloons.

Fab CAS card, Bev! Love the soft colours of the balloons, those splattery shady bit things, the hands-drawn strings in the style of the sentiment, and that gorgeous little heart. Perfect!

Goodness Bev, I had another friend who's husband just recovered from cellulitis too! Glad to hear that hubby is on the mend though. I love your card a lot too! It's so simple, but so perfect! One that I will have to try and CASE one day. I hope you and hubby are staying well! Hugs, Brenda

You SHOULD like it quite much because it's so whimsical and lovely. You have such a knack for arranging bits into an artful, delicate display of art. <3 I hope your hubster's cellulitis clears up soon.
