CAS(E) This Sketch #16–Great Job!

Hello Sweet Friends!


Well, I have a new “do” and clean carpets.  All is right with the world.  LOL  Oh, and I think I forgot to tell you about my weekend garage sale success!  I brought a boatload of my unloved crafty crap over to my bestie Terri’s house for her major league garage sale!!  OH MY GOSH!!  What an experience that was!  At the end of the day, I made over $1,000 (but that includes $780 from stuff that Terri sold for me on eBay while I was in Seattle)!!  WHAT?!!  Seriously, those girls (Terri’s two daughters were very seasoned contributors to the whole event, too) really know how to throw a garage sale.  Thought you’d all get a kick out of that.  Hee!

Okay, enough babble about that.  Let’s get down to why you dropped by today, shall we?  This week’s CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge has two viewpoints.  Here’s my answer to the sketch:

CTS16 - Great Job

Cute, right?!  I thought this would be super fun to slip inside my grandson’s lunchbox to remind him how much I love him and how proud we are of him.  He’s only 2-1/2, but he’ll be going to school before I know it!  Wahhhhh!  LOL  I’ll list the products that I used at the end of my post.

I hope you’ll click on through to the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge blog to link up your own answer to the sketch, and check out the delicious lovelies that my teammates created for you all while you’re there.  I know you’re going to love them!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  You all make my heart smile whenever you leave me some love.  Thank you for that!  Have a great weekend – I plan to spend most of mine in my craft room!  Woot!

Love this school themed card - the 'cork board' is a great idea and it looks like the note is posted to it!
