CAS[E] This Sketch #117

I love that Lesley Croghan blessed us with darling sketches before saying goodbye ... this one is a darling. CTS#117:
 

Anyone that knows me even just a little knows I reached for my Mama E. window like this one, right?  WRONG!  April fooled you!

Since it is Spring, and we've had a few showers in the last few days [some rather white - if you get my drift] I reached for one of my favorite Reverse Confetti Perfect Paisley dies, an Avery Elle Happy Spring sentiment, and a few MME papers from their Dolled Up collection of papers - nearly used up!


You can see the Two-acre Woods is nearly clear of all that white stuff now... sunny, gorgeous, warm day today.

Feeling blessed... thanks for stopping by.  Please dash over  to check out what my teamies have made.  OH!  You'll join us won't you?  You have a whole week to make your card... I can't wait to see how the sketch inspires you!

Jackie W said...

cute little card love the raindrops. But you have done what is my pet peeve, photo against outdoor background which makes your card dark because light source behind image!
I love that yuo have no snow-wish I could say the same:) Still about a foot here and banks shoulder high!

Happy Spring, indeed, Michele, with these colourful, fun raindrops (and look what you've done...made me "want" these paisley dies!). Another innovative take...I'm quite intrigued by how your mind works, especially since you always create something that delights!

What a fantastic interpretation of the sketch. Now, this is very inspiring indeed, and is really getting my creative juices flowing. And a fantastic way to use some pretty patterned paper.
