CAS(E) This Sketch #12–Brighter Skies


I am happy to report that I am finally among the living again . . . after sleeping for four days, I’ve finally kicked that nasty flu bug to the curb!  Phew!  That was a nasty one!  I’m hoping that you and yours have escaped that dastardly bug because it is a pain in the you-know-what!

CTS12 Graphic

The minute I felt better, I immediately raced to my craft room to create a little ditty for this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch.  It’s another beauty created by Lisa and has a zillion possibilities for interpretation, don’t you think?

CTS12 - Brighter Skies

You know I have this immense love for metal dies.  I had to use some new ones that came some time before I left for CHA, but that I hadn’t had a chance to play with because I was so  busy getting ready for CHA.  The raindrops die is one of my newest acquisitions and it was super fun to play with.  I feel like the fact that we live in Seattle in the summer will afford me many opportunities (sadly, too many opportunities) to use that baby!  Ha!


STAMPS:  Heart to Heart #6 (PTI)
PAPER:  Ash CS (AMERICAN CRAFTS), Sno Cone and Lemon Drop CS (FRENCH POPTONE), White Linen CS

I know the other ladies on the team have created some genius interpretations for your inspiration.  I so hope you’ll click on through to the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge Blog to link up your own project and see what the other gals made for you!


That’s it for me today, kids.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I am ever so thankful for you!  Have a great weekend!
