Sun, Butterfly, Happy Thoughts...CAS(E) #17

A quick post to share my card for this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #17.  The sketch has certainly drawn plenty of talented artists, based on the entries I've seen. So much inspiration and 'prettiness' all in one place!

I was a bit flummoxed about how to approach the challenge when, in the midst of a 'get organized' stint (it was momentary...I made it go away!) some long-forgotten stamps emerged, buried in my stash (if you can really call my teensy collection a 'stash').  I can't believe they hadn't seen the 'ink of day' before this!  Inspiration sparked, I got down to work, and even wound up colouring a bit, which I haven't done in ages!

Here's Jackie's sketch:

My "Happy Thoughts" card...

After this weekend's snowstorm, I'm ready for spring...sun, butterflies, warm breezes, happy thoughts.  Really, really ready...

Thanks for stopping by.  I wish you "Spring" - spring weather, spring thoughts and spring in your steps!


  1. Love this sunny, cheery card with all the bright colours! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

  2. You're right, the sketch drew in plenty of talented artists...and guess what - you're one of them!! This card just makes me happy! The colours, THAT SUN!! I love how you tied in the colours in the paper pieced butterfly with the rest of the card too - makes the card have a lovely flow! Beautiful and sweet all at the same time!
