CAS[E] this Sketch #301

I've been so busy making cards for Christmas … I even repurposed a few of those tags that I made last year!  You know, because I don't actually wrap presents!!

Donna's Sketch for #301 was just the perfect inspiration …

… I'm tickled pink to put this tag to use!

Hope you're all cozied up getting ready for Christmas!!  It's only 12 days away!  Need to get in the mood?  let's go see what inspired this Sketch!

Inspired By #50 ... happy mail!

Happy mail, indeed!  Sadly, there is/was a postal strike in Canada at the time I created this card … a special card for our sweet IB leader will undoubtedly be late!  But birthday wishes do NOT expire, right?!

No doubt you'll see what I was Inspired By … can't wait to see what you all do with this fabulous photo!

CAS Christmas December

Trina is the host of the CAS Christmas - December Challenge, and has chosen a marvelous theme:

A little side story must be told here today.  Many of you know that I've been making cards for years … I know many of you that have, too.  But have you made a card that was a favorite?  I have, and had saved it for many years … until this Christmas!  I decided I really wanted to recreate it, and will share this rendition with CAS Christmas today!  [my apologies for not having a photo of that card!] [read to the bottom!  I found it!]

This time my Star is from The Ton, add the perfect sentiment from Unity, and that little tree tip is a circa 2013 set from Clearly Besotted - and just happens to be what I used on that favorite card!! 

Who among you has a star on the top of your Christmas tree?
It was always the very last ornament on my parents' tree!

I'm having so much fun with all of this play time!!  Thanks for stopping in today!
