CASology 19 - Thanks!


This week's CASology Cue Card is Thanks!



We Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving in October (ironically, I was in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on the day), but every day is a good day to remember to be thankful, right?

And this year, I'm thankful that I'll be in the US (Wisconsin) right after US Thanksgiving, to spend the weekend with my sister, the horse surgeon. I can't wait!

I'm also thankful for all of you - the whole cardmaking/stamping community, and all the opportunities I've been given to share my work with you and see your work as well!

This thank you card was inspired by this Stampin' Up ad:

B1_Inkredible_Nov12_USCA

Originally I saw a cropped version  of this photo that showed just part of the four ink colours next to the sentiment. I started playing around with my Skinny Oval (A Muse Artstamps) and ended up with this design, using MFT Vanity Plate alpha letters. I think it's kind of fun!

Now it's your turn to be thankful! Don't forget to link up your THANKS creations by Sunday at noon (CST)!

And, don't forget to drop by the blogs of the other Design Team members to see how they interpreted this Cue Card:

I usually see inspiration in a lot of different things, but I would NEVER EVER have been inspired by that SU ad. You really have an eye for details. Love that you can run with it.
