CAS[E] this Sketch #190

This week's Sketch spoke to me ... in plain, and simple, ways - thank you Chrissy! 


 Yes, I AM still unpacking but, even though this card was made a few weeks ago, it speaks volumes about how we feel at the moment =]   I am so thankful for all your support last Thursday! 

For CTS #190:

SU Ampersand, Concord & 9th Give Thanks
 

 I'm sure by next week I'll be back to my crafty ways!  Until then, I'll be seeing you in the gallery ... thanks so much for the visit!

I've been a bit MIA lately but that doesn't mean I haven't been oohing and aahing over your creations. Today's CAS beauty is no exception. We'll be moving in November! So glad all is going well with your move.
