CAS[E] this Sketch #203

Happy 2017 everyone!!!  I am honestly happy to have a fresh start, in this New Year ... not usually one to make resolutions, but it's wonderful to try to put my best foot, and happiest outlook forward each day of the year ... so try, try again will be my wake-up thought, and prayer each day.

How exciting that Chrissy has honored me by choosing a few of my sketches/cards for CTS 2017!  Thanks, Chrissy!

Here is your inspiration for this week:


A fabulous time of year to be thankful for all we have, and the gifts we've received during the holidays.  So, for CTS #203, this is the thank you card I made that inspired our Sketch:

A lovely little slip of vellum for an overlaid panel =]
 
I do hope this card inspires you to play cards with us this week ... that little break was great, but getting back to crafting feels marvelous!
 
See you in the gallery!
 
=]  Michele

Darling card, and wise thoughts!

I love this sketch, Michele. I plan on using it over and over. Your card is so lovely. I'm not one for resolutions either, I always wonder why people wait until the beginning of the year to start something they want to do anyway. ;-) Your commitment to having the happiest outlook shines through, one of the many things I like about you. xxx

I so enjoy your postive and upbeat personality, Michele. Yes, try, try again is a great daily mantra. I'm sure you'll do well with it. Congrats on having your sketches selected. How fabulous for you! You've done and outstanding job right out of the gate with this beauty. That's a pretty sweet flower and great sentimet flowing so nicely across the card. Thanks so much for sharing! Hugs! :)

I love the ebb and flow of your design, Michele. It's soft and pretty in peach and gold.

Michelle said...

Love this soft and subtle white on white..... and the perfect Altenew floral!

I agree Michele, we just all need to put our best foot forward each day! Love, love, love the card! That vellum is so pretty with the wavy edge. And that sweet little flower is just the perfect touch on this thanks card! How fun to have your sketches and cards chosen for "Case This Sketch" and why not, you make fabulous cards!!! Congrats my friend, you so deserve this!! Now I need prayers, my furnace don't stay running. Poor repair guy has been here 3 days in a row. Gets it running and it runs good for a while, then quits when I'm sleeping. Dang thing!! Hugs, Brenda
