CAS[E] this Sketch #121

Hello my friends - it's CAS[E] this Sketch day today.  We've got a great sketch from Ms. Sam Simpson that you'll love... but before that...

Yesterday, I spent the day with Bobby Hagen of Bits & Pieces, who drove nearly two hours to play cards with me!  We played cards and so much more: we ate, we laughed, and stamped, and borrowed each other's favorite supplies!  Just loved every single moment - and can't wait for our next-time.

Since Bobby is a regular player at CTS, I decided that we should make our cards for CTS together - knowing Chrissy would not mind one bit - right Chrissy?

We had a bit of fun using my Wplus9 Flora and Fauna stamps/dies.

First up, Bobby's card - please hop over to her blog here for her description and supplies list... I think it's just so sweet!



I used the same basic supplies, and a sweet little sentiment from the Garden Fairy set that another sweet friend sent me ... thank you, once more, Lisa!  More cards to come! 

What do you think?


Gift Tag die from Sugar Pea Designs - a prize from the Coffee Lover's Bloghop, and an added layer from Reverse Confetti.


I won't make you wait another second for Sam Simpson's great sketch - for CAS[E] this Sketch #121:

 
 
Are there special things you look forward to each Spring?  Tom and I are so anxious for the Hummingbirds at our feeders, and for flowers that will attract the butterflies.  Your card could tell a story, too... hope to see you in the gallery this week!  One more photo - can you stand it?

What a fabulous day you must have had. So wonderful to meet up with stamping friends. They may in fact be new friends, but they often feel like very old friends. Love both of your cards and the beautiful picture of both of you.

Hi Michele. I just love how you used the sketch. I always find it challenging to use a tag on a card, isn't that silly! Love all your pics. I am so lucky to have hummers at our feeder all year long!

Sounds like a lot of fun Michele!! It's always fun to get together with a friend who loves the hobby as much as you do. I love both of the cards you ladies made!! So pretty and springy. I love both your takes on the sketch too. I love the hummingbirds, and since it is going to be warm I want to get my feeders filled and out. I hope you see some beautiful hummers this summer Michele!

Sounds such a perfect playdate, Michele ... the sweetest cards ... and the most gorgeous photo of you two lovely ladies! Just wondering, does your fireplace take flue powder (as in Harry Potter) ... Hugs, Anita :)
