CAS(E) This Sketch #119 and Showcase Your Style #13

I wanted to make a couple of thank you cards for the radiation therapists and the PEL drivers who have been so kind and respectful while my Mom went through her treatments for skin cancer.  I thought the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch would be the perfect starting point.

After looking through my nature stamps, I decided on one from Penny Black.  I know it's Spring but the stamp just called out for a Fall treatment.


Some Distress Markers and a little spritz of water and I was done.  Well, except for the sentiment and the layering of the panel.  As easy as that sounds, I think I tried 3 times to get the right amount of water to make the leaves look good.

How about "seconds" as Michele from I Card Everyone would say?  Actually this is the first but I liked the other one better for the challenge.


I've always loved it when I see doodles on a card, so I tried my hand at it.  I used a dark brown pen and then stamped the sentiment in SSS Sparrow.


I just checked and Showcase Your Style has the theme of Thank You this week.  I'm going to send my card over there, too.

Thanks for stopping by.
