CASology 110

Things have been pretty busy around here this week.  My brother and his wife were visiting from North Carolina for a few days, which meant we all went junking.  You've seen the American Pickers, right?  These two put Frank and Mike to shame.

My sister and I also toured a couple of skilled nursing facilities in preparation for admitting our parents.  It's never an easy thing to do but I think we've found a great place that they will be comfortable in.  Now it's just a waiting game until a spot opens up.

I did take a little time today to do a card for CASology.  I haven't played with them for a while but when I saw the cue word, I knew I had just the stamp set to use.



Everything is from my NBUS set from SSS called Sending Happy Thoughts.  I knew I wanted to emboss the background and the Geo Squares folder was perfect.  It had all the little sections I could pop up the envelopes on.  The most difficult part was in deciding how to do the sentiment.  The little "happy thoughts" was a given but how to do the "sending" had me stumped for a while.  I played around with paper until I decided I could cut a piece that would cover the design in the upper left corner.  I used my 1/4" corner chomper to make it look like the rest of the squares and stamped the word in the middle with HA Navy ink, which I also used on the other two word phrases.  A little red heart to add a pop of color and I'm thinking this says letter with an S.

I have another card in the works and some stamp sets out for a a couple more but I may need to clean my desk off first.  I only allow it to get just so messy and then it's time to organize.  Well, maybe I'll make the cards first and then organize.  Which is exactly why it's a mess.  lol

Thanks for stopping by.  I love reading your comments so I hope you leave one.
