TAG! I"m *IT*!! Round 7...CASology Week 75: Knitting, Merry Monday #88 (use an animal)

Whoosh..back again!

Part 1 of my 'post story'...
Last week, I was, once again, dazzled and delighted by another stunning card created by the ever-so-talented Cindy Lovell, which she submitted to retrosketches.  Of course, I was *compelled* to go on a case-venture, because her card  is soooo striking (mine, not so much) and uses some products that I have in my collection.  Here's Cindy's card and my little interpretation below.

See...isn't Cindy's card amazing!!

And here's my rather busy little concoction...

Part 2 of my "post story"

While I was die-cutting and pasting away (maintaining my Christmas card only diet, of course), humming along with Christmas carols, an idea pinged...and quickly became the design template for Round 6 of my 90 tags venture.  The photobooth die started it all. Actually, Cindy started  it all, so THANK YOU Cindy for sparking inspiration for these tags.

The first three are heading to CASology Week 75,



and the next 7 are off to Merry Monday #88




Yes, indeed, clearly besotted with Clearly Besotted!!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!!

  2. Well, dang. that is one awesome CASE!!! LOVE the layering, and every lovely element is set in it's own perfect little place. Those snow flakes tucked in behind the panels are just delightful! Stars = gorgeous. And oh what a sweet light bulb, ah hah moment you had to transition the design into tags! Execution - perfection!! Okay, these tags are ADORABLE!! And now with the introduction to these sweet penguins on top of the snowman and reindeer images...this set is now on my wish list in BOLD!! Love the speech bubbles, love it ALL!!!

  10. Now I not only have to get the Clearly Besotted set - but clearly I need the photobooth die! It's a great way to set those cute images apart from the background without covering up all of the dsp!
