CCC #76... let's celebrate!

Hello friends!!    It is Tuesday (and Christmas Eve!) and that means time for a brand new CASology cue word.  This post is bittersweet for me because it is my last post as a design team member for CASology.  I still remember receiving the private message from Melissa asking me to join her new endeavor called "CASology".  I was surprised and honored that she wanted me to be on her design team!  The last 18 months (yes... it has been 18 months!) have been fill with lots of fun and fabulous cue words.  It has been a joy to work with Melissa and everyone on the CASology team and I will miss being a part of that amazingly talented group... sniff, sniff!  Thank you to everyone who left me lovely comments each week (even on my not so great cards... and there were quite a few!).  I appreciated receiving each and everyone of them!  So that was the bitter part, now on to the sweet... the new cue word!  This challenge will run for two weeks so you will have plenty of time to get your "party" on with this one!  Yep... the cue word is party!   All the details can be found here and we are joined this week by guest designer, Kara!




Months ago I purchase a party hat border die from MFT, but had never used it and so this week's cue was the perfect time to break it in.  I die cut some fun dotty paper from BasicGrey (Shine On) using the die.  A bit more of the paper was used underneath the sentiment to create a cohesive look.  The layout for the card is based on Mojo Monday sketch #324.  I think this is a sketch I may hang onto as it is perfect for clean and simple cards, as well as more complex cards.  The sentiment is from the MFT set Birthday Sentiments.

Thanks for stopping by...I cannot wait to see where this week's cue word "knit" takes you!  In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Judy, Meghan, Ardyth, Gillian, Maureen, KimberlyTracey and guest designer, Kara.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft; white; PP:  BasicGrey; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Ink:  Tuxedo Black; Die:  My Favorite Things; enamel dots:  Stampin Up!

Great use of colour in a limited way to convey the fun of a party while remaining cas. We'll miss you Rosemary - and wish you all the very best!

I love how you kept your card CAS, yet with a great use of patterned paper! Such a fun banner and sentiment, too!

I'll miss seeing your contributions at CASology, but you're not getting rid of me that easily! Thanks so much for always inspiring me with your beautiful creations!

Merry Christmas to you, Rosemary!

I can't believe it's been 18 months! You will be a big loss to the CASology team--always creative & inspiring--thank you, Rosemary! Your ending with a bang--fabulous use of the printed paper for the die cut & the piece on the card--love it! Merry Christmas!
