CAS(E) This Sketch #15 –You Color My World!


Hello My Peeps!


Happy Valentine’s Day!!  My hubby and I are not huge Valentine’s Day participants . . . I’m sure there were occasions when we celebrated (I actually have a vague memory of cutting off the tip of one of my fingers in the process of fixing a special VD dinner) this Hallmark holiday, but those times were few and far between.  However, there is one constant tradition for me on this day – my dad has sent me flowers since I was a little girl.  When my girls were little, he sent them flowers, too.  Our house looked like a virtual florist shop on February 14th!!  Ha!  But it is a memory that I will treasure forever.

Anyways, let’s get to why we’re here today, shall we?  Today’s CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge is another goodie!  It includes elements that might tweak your Valentine’s Day spirit!  I was inspired to create a “love” themed card, but not necessarily a Valentine.

CTS15 - You Color My World

I HAD to break out my new Paper Smooches Paint Palette dies because I feel like it’s the perfect icon for the focal image.  I also thought the sentiment was perfect, too!  Isn’t it so cute?!


STAMPS:  Word Salad (Paper Smooches)
INK:  Chocolate Pigment Ink (Fresh Ink)
White Linen CS (Ellen Hutson Essentials), Blu Raspberry, Lemon Drop, and Orange Fizz CS (French Poptone), Kraft and Chartreuse CS (PTI), Going Gray CS (Stampin’ Up!), Snap DP (Simple Stories)
Paint Palette Dies (Paper Smooches)


We’d love for you to play along with us!  It’s a super fun sketch!!  You’ll need to click on through to the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge Blog to link up your project and check out the lovely inspiration that my amazing teammates created for you!


That’s it for me today, cute kids!  I’m off to lunch with my BFF and to discuss the details of a garage sale that we’re doing on Saturday.  She’s a garage sale goddess, and I have a lot of crap to sell – so I’m hoping to learn from the master, and get rid of it ALL!! LOL  Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great weekend!

Great card, Karolyn! * almost* put the palette on my order a few days ago!

Okay girl, so how cute is the wee shcmick of striped paper on the tip of the paint brush!!! This is why your designs are ALWAYS so amazing! Your attention to the small details always, ALWAYS smoke your cards right out of the ball park!

Thanks for your super sweet compliments on my CAS(E) card! Means the world to me (truly does).

Love how you tipped the brush with the patterned paper and how one side has the chevron and the other stripes. Super cute card!

The whole card is so fun, Karolyn, but the patterned paper on the tip of the paint brush is just brilliant!
