CAS[E] the Sketch #180

Sam Simpson has created a Sketch for this week that is perfect for a little paper that I've been savoring for some time now - yikes!   Here is Sam's Sketch:


I think you'll agree when you see my card - for CTS #180:

 
Can you believe I still have Dear Lizzy's 5th & Frolic?  I might have purchased it right after I started card-making!  I fussy-cut those little polaroid-style prints, gave them a little lift, positioned them over that darling little cross-stitched print, and added a little LOVE!  I know it is nearly impossible to read these so here is a little help:
  • Love - you make me ridiculously happy
  • happy little life
  • right here
I'm saving this one for Tom, maybe the first night we share in the new abode ... we've been incredible busy with this selling/buying/moving business.  OH!  I haven't told you this news yet?  More soon!  But if I seem significantly absent, that's why!  I'll catch up with you soon.
 
Whether it's stamped, embossed, layered, patterned, or just deliciously devoid of embellishment, we will LOve your additions to the gallery - promise! xx

This is such a beautiful take on Sam's sketch! I love how you placed those darling Polaroids, and I think you saved these beautiful papers for the perfect project, Michele! As always, you nailed it!!!

I won't tell you how old some of my stash is (ahem... hoarded? because once you use it then it's gone, that's why I think I like stamps so much now, the possibilities are endless). Great way to use your fab goodies too Michele! Good luck with everything / life, I am just so happy and feel very privileged that you found time to send me one of your beautiful creations, you totally made my day xx

This card is exactly why it is ok to hoard supplies. You just never know when paper you bought ages and ages ago will be PERFECT for a card you need right now! I love the homespun feel of this one. Good luck with the move!!
