Hello!  Happy 2016!  I will admit that I enjoyed a nice break from crafting over the holidays, but now I’m ready to get back into it again.

Unfortunately, I feel like my card for the first CAS Colours & Sketches challenge of the year shows that my card making skills got a little rusty over the break.  I had a few other ideas, but the more I thought about them, I felt they either weren’t CAS enough or were just a second take on some of the previous cards I’ve made.  Finally I decided to try the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge that ends later this morning.  I stamped the “H PPY” part of the sentiment twice so I could use die-cut balloons in both of the blue challenge colors to fill in for the letter “a”.  The lower, lighter color balloon is attached with dimensional adhesive for a little bit of visual interest (and to accommodate the string of the other balloon beneath it).

  4. Happy New Year Patricia and thank you for all the hard work that you do behind the scenes at CC&S to keep the rest of the DT on our toes! I love the big, bold stamping on your card set off beautifully with cardstock in the challenge colours. Stef x

  5. I think your skills aren’t rusty at all! This is a fab CAS card in every way!

  6. No you’re certainly not rusty, just hitting the CAS spot perfectly as always!

  7. Super fun take on the sketch!

  8. I don’t see rust! Heck, it wasn’t in the palette. I love the use of the bakers twine – I find it so hard to use. Thanks for the CAS demonstration on its use.

  9. I think this is a really fun card – no rustyness as far as I can see!

  10. Awesome card! Love the balloons as letters!
