CAS[E] this Sketch #221

Donna Mikasa is our Sketch artist this week!  Oh, my friend, though I am a bit nervous, I just know our followers will love it as much as I do... here's Donna's CTS #221 Sketch:


A never before used Hero Arts set was calling my name this week ... I thought this handsome fella deserved a little play time!  Goodness knows I don't make enough 'guy' cards ...

 
Our Donna is the Queen of CAS design... she may better appreciate this version:
 

Either way, isn't he just cockadoodle-y-cute?!  Whoa ... I may have thought again about the placement of those enamel dots!  Geeeesh!

Let's go see the gorgeousness that inspired this Sketch, shall we?  I cannot wait to see all my team-mate's cards each week!

LOVE seeing what you create, too ... see you in the gallery!

I'm loving both of these so so much, most especially the monotone version. Love the colours on that rooster! Thanks for waking me up this morning. :)

Oh my gosh...crowing with delight in seeing your dapper, handsome roosters! Fabulous! As for the enamel dots...you've made me laugh (but only because you brought their placement to our attention. Let's just say they make your rooster all the more 'realistic' *grin*)
Hugs~c

Oh, I love them both, and yes, the second one a wee bit more! Never thought I'd like a rooster so much but you may have enabled me with that handsome fella! ;)

Well, I love both versions, although I am partial to the CAS design! And, what a handsome guy he is...WOW! If you hadn't mentioned the placement of the enamel dots, I probably wouldn't have noticed, but now that you point it out, that is funny :)

Cat Craig said...

LOl...those dots at least they are read and not a brown beige-y sort of color. That handsome rooster looks great in both settings.

Tee hee, Michele ... strategically placed enamel dots ... I laughed out loud at your mention of them! Your rooster is such a handsome chap on both ... the grey background in particular brings out his wonderful plumage! Hugs, Anita :)

I would have seen the dots as rooster pooh if you hadn't mentioned it! hahahahahahahahaha!!!!! Got a good chuckle, my friend! Both cards are pretty darn marvelous, if you ask me, and I've been looking at this stamp, though in my world, the only good chicken/rooster is in my oven! Oh how they pecked me when I was little!! What's the scalloped edge die on your first one? It's wonderful. Fun cards!! Love 'em (pooh or no...hahahaha). Bev

Ha! These are just fabulous! Love the sentiments and you shouldn't have mentioned the enamel dots, because now I see what you mean... :)

Jeanne said...

So enjoy your sense of humor and fun, Michele! Your cards are absolutely fine and dandy! Great looking roosters and fabulous looking cards. Got a great chuckle from the red enamel dots...what's was in that feed!? Ha, ha! Have a happy day, my friend! :)

These are both fantastic, Michele!

Both of these cards are great! You know, I hadn't even thought about the placement of the enamel dots until you mentioned it! Ha ha! In so many ways, it's a great guy card!

Kristie Goulet said...

Love both of these lovely cards, Michele!!! That stamp is amazing and you rocked it! I chuckled about your comment on the enamel dot placement. LOL!

Bobby said...

He doesn't look at all like my pet rooster but I love him anyway, Michele. I love his coops, too, the red and white stripes and the gray and white burlap.

Lisa Elton said...

Ooooh , I like them both! Is that Washi on the first one, love that!! I had a good hearty chuckle over the enamel dots. Hey, even roosters gotta go!!

Katie Ann Brooks said...

I love both of these fab cards, Michele! Perfect use of the sketch and that handsome rooster!

What a handsome rooster! Love the washi tape on the first and the patterned paper on the second! And the placement of the enamel dots made me chuckle! You are too funny!
