Seize the Sketch meets CAS-ual Friday = Sweet Friends.

Last Saturday a couple crafty friends came over to craft {Katie, Kimberly & Novell}.  Good News, in 4.5 hours time I managed to crank out 2 cards!  Each time I hope to increase that number!

Here's one of the cards I worked on.  I used the MME Lost & Found 3 collection:


I combined it with the CAS-ual Fridays set, Beanstalks.  I love the combo of fonts!  Can you see the 3 clear sequins that I added to the Lawn Fawn Journal card die cut?  Those are from Katie {Thanks Katie!}.


Don't forget about 



I did a very clean & simple version of the sketch.  I changed the circle to a rectangle and then ended up combining the flag within the journal card by stamping the sentiment....you see it, right?

There's still time to play along with



You have until noon eastern March 21st!

Monochromatic panels with some pattern = kinda CAS
Okay, not really, but I did use shades of gray!

The CAS-ual Fridays set, Beanstalks is such a great versatile set:



Have a great day!

Not bad, two cards in 4.5 hours when crafty peeps are over is a huge accomplishment!! I can never concentrate. Love this one too, and that sentiment is one of my favorites.
