CAS(E) This Sketch #9–Sparkle With Happiness!


Happy Thursday, friends!

Phew!  Are you all as bogged down with holiday details as I am?  I love the holidays, but somehow I always get caught up in the details and forget to enjoy all of the wonders of the season.  I’m close to being done with those annoying details though, so I should be enjoying the seasonal fun very, very soon.  How about you?  Are you done shopping yet?

Well, I’m happy to be back with this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch challenge.  Jackie designed this one, and oh my goodness – it’s a fun one!  I feel like this one has some amazing possibilities for interpretation, don’t you?

CTS9 - Sparkling Holidays 2

Here’s my answer to the sketch – this is actually the third amalgamation from what I started with.  I’m very happy with the end result.  Clean, simple, and sparkly – what more could you want?  I used three different Martha Stewart snowflake punches, punching two out of the fuchsia panel, and one from the white panel.  The sparkles behind the snowflakes come from some delicious glitter paper – I’ll be hoarding this stuff as much as I can because it’s gorgeous!


STAMPS:  Winter Wonderland (Taylored Expressions)
INK:  Fuchsia (Fresh Ink)
PAPER:  Solar White CS (Neenah Classic Crest), Razzleberry CS (French Poptone), Silver Glitter Paper (American Crafts)
OTHER:  Snowflake Punches (Martha Stewart)


The other ladies on the team have created some phenomenal projects for your inspiration, so be sure and click on through to the CAS(E) This Sketch blog to see for yourself, and link up your answer to the sketch there, too.  I know it’s a busy time of year, but we’d so love for you to play along with us!


That’s it for me, kids!  I’m heading out to a yummy cookie party tonight, and another party on Saturday.  Then we’re off to Seattle for the holidays.  I’ll be popping in now and again throughout that time, so I hope you’ll come by to visit again soon.

I'm finishing off my wrapping and tags and hopefully 'poppers' today... it sounds so easy when I type it, but I know it will take ages, but then it's just the food and our new fridge arrives today so couldn't do anything about that til now. Sounds like you're on track and you've whipped up this amazing card too, LoVe those silver snowflakes and the pink!!

Beautiful card Karolyn. Love the non traditional colors - especially the vibrant pink!

Sounds like you are well on your way to being on top of your work plan. I wish I could say the same. I am definitely planning to get my gift tags done this weekend, then wrap, then clean, then bake, then play bingo....I know what the priority will be!

Have a happy holiday season!
