CAS[E] the Sketch #128

It's planting season on our Two Acre Wood - can we see the sunlight for the trees?  Just a bit ... here is how we deal with it: we grow UP!  [who just said it's about time?]

As I was chatting with my friend, Chriss, I tied on the vertical lines and placed the beans - planted in containers - just at the bottom of the trellis. We can't believe how quickly they grow!  Before you know it, we'll be eating, sharing [Bev], and canning gorgeous green beans - spicy dilly beans, too!

Though a different vegetable all together, you'll see how my card came together, using Hannelie's wonderful sketch:

 
 Inside sentiment:

"... and thank you, Dad.  See. I was listening all along!"

We all simply love how you all interpret the sketches ... this week will be no exception, I'm sure of it.  Dash over to the CTS blog ... there is no end to the treats from my team-mates.

This just shows inspiration can come from anywhere, if you just open your eyes. I guess I need to open mine more. ;) Darling card, Michele, including your sentiment.
