Hugs, Kisses and Lightbulbs...CAS(E) this Sketch #108


Hopefully, this Wednesday evening sees everyone warm, cozy and safe! We've been watching the weather conditions from the East: Yikes! To all my sweet friends who live in those snowy states and provinces: hunker down, stay inside and craft!  Best way to beat the winter blues, hands down!

I'm sharing three cards today; the key ingredients for the first two were 'enabled' by ultra talented, Kim, with her cards here.  Now if that darling little fox she worked magic with in her second card wasn't enough to lead me to the land of 'must have,' her link (here) to additional Little Bits dies sealed it!  As an added bonus, she offered ideas on how to use them, such as, "What about the globe or schoolhouse for a back to school option? The cake for a birthday card."  What's a person to do when the research has been done and inspiration sparks flamed?  We all know the answer: and a-shopping I did go! The bonus: I had a Taylored Expression gift card!  Thank you, Kim, for the incentive and the 'persuasion'!  By the way, you're only seeing two of the new additions *grin*

My trio are off to CAS(E) this Sketch #108,  Apparently, my inability to exercise restraint in adding to my stash is repeated in my inability to 'stop at only one' card. Blame placed squarely on this oh-so-versatile, use-me often' sketch.

First up: my Little Bits fox...isn't he a cutie!

Second, my Little Bits light bulb, paired with a TAWS sentiment...

Third, another play with some RC goodies...

These cards are for Ms. T's and Mr. C's daycare teachers.  Three done...and I'm not sure how many more to go.  Works for me...I have a whole bunch of Valentine/heart goodies still to use. I need a Valentine's Day every month...hmmm.  Possibilities.  Actually, I have another idea to 'justify' my expanding collection of heart-themed stamps/dies,  the details of which are still percolating. If  my little scheme comes to fruition (or as my mom would say, if it 'fruitifies'), I'll be thrilled x excited!  Stay tuned.

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