CAS(e) This Sketch #58

CTS #58 photo CTS58picA.jpg

Sorry about being rather quiet here the last few weeks.  It's been a very busy two weeks and I am thrilled that we are in the home stretch!  Kids are off school on Friday and we can ease our way into Christmas :)

This CAS(E) This Sketch sketch caught my eye and a few ideas popped into my head, tired as I am, so I ran with it while the energy lasted LOL!  I flipped the sketch to a horizontal orientation and also inverted the design so my sentiment was on the left rather than on the right.

Just had to use my "joy" die one more time, an create some sparkly joy :)  Made this for my SIL as we are headed over there on Saturday for dinner and then a walk through some gorgeous gardens in Vancouver that are all decorated for Christmas and have various choirs singing. Fingers crossed the weather holds.

Hope you are surviving the last minute rush.  Take time to breathe deep and not stress out too much - I know, easier said than done.

Impressive way to reorient the sketch. I really like how you layered those snow flakes, and that silver 'joy' is just beautiful.

Too late - I am stressed already. I am running about a week behind with everything (even my commenting and visiting and shopping!). I guess the stress will all be over on Christmas because whatever is done is done by then - LOL! Then I am going to stress over the 5 lbs I have gained lately. Ok - to your wonderful and very pretty card - you always come up with the best stuff. I love the colors and the die - I want them all! Lovely stuff. Hugz!
