Peace*Love*Joy...CAS(E) this Sketch #94

Happy October 1st ..nearly October 2nd!

Truly a cas post because I mis-timed a challenge closing! Yeesh...I need an organization-GPS!

My card was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #94, as well as some Christmas Carols running through my head...


Such a cool sketch - and by the time the link closes, the gallery will see over 100 entries! Way to inspire us, Donna and the rest of the DT!!

Mine...just a simple little red&green 'note' card...first version catches the shimmer of the paper...




You're getting off easy with how brief I'm being *grin*....enjoy!!

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!

Hehe, if it's consolation: happens to me, too. I scramble to complete a card, I admire my work and then I realize that I'm a week late. Oh, the tears and tantrums... ;)

Wow! I am loving this card Carol!! Those music notes are fabulous. How cool that you made this right into a Christmas card-so clever my friend! I love your beautiful traditional color choices and I love the sentiment placed across the music notes. Very cool card! Hugs, Brenda Oh, no I can't believe it is Oct!!!! Yikes the holidays are coming up fast!

You should probably look out for this winning top honour on winner day!! Absolutely fabulous, fabulous and more fabulous! The muted traditional colours were the perfect choice for this and the sentiment adds a beautiful golden touch. Yup, winner!

My jaw dropped at the sheer loveliness of this and the absolute perfection of this take on the sketch!! I am uber proud to say that - "Hey, yes, C is my friend!! I know she rocks at card-making on every level but she is not full of herself at all, in fact, she is down-right humble to the extreme!!" C - you are a joy and this card is definitely in the winner category and if it is not than I will be shocked and completely befuddled!! I think you aced this one, my friend!! Thanks for inspiring me always and being a sort of GPS to me - steering me in directions I might not otherwise go!! You rock my socks off!!
