CASology65 - Crisp!

This is my second post for today - for my Holiday Inspirations Group 7 Days of Halloween project, please scroll down.


This week's CASology Cue Card is Crisp



It's the time of year for crisp leaves, crisp apples and crisp cool temps, but I went in a different direction - BACON!

I put the Paper Smooches bacon and eggs on a white, popped up 'plate' and used a bit of patterned paper as a tablecloth (to provide contrast between the card base and the plate), but I knew I wanted space for my sentiment, so I only used a strip of the red paper. (BTW, I kill me, see how this breakfast plate is missing the toast? That's why it calls for a toast! lol!)

Now it's your turn - I think there's a lot of room for creativity with this cue card - can't wait to see what you come up with!

Check out the rest of the design team's projects for some more inspiration!

love your take on "crisp" ardyth... absolutely brilliant!

Meghan said...

This is perfect! Those eggs look good enough to eat! Yum!

Brilliant sentiment - I mean really, what is breakfast without toast?? Love your colouring on the eggs and bacon. I considered crisp bacon as an option for my card especially as my brother and I recently had a debate on how bacon should be cooked. I am firmly in the crisp camp but Phil is dead against it. In his words, "Meat shouldn't crunch."

I got quite a chuckle out of your card! I'll admit, bacon was not the first thing I thought of, but you've made it work so wonderfully here. This is just so darn fun! Love this!! Bev

Bacon makes everything better.

Kelly Griglione said...

I've been waiting for this one since you mentioned it, and how perfect, a Subway commercial is on now!

Oh my, I am IN LOVE with the fat on your bacon. !!! Well done! Or maybe, not so well done, if there's fat still there : )

It would be funny to have toast on the inside of your card, waiting to be called : )

Melissa said...

This made me giggle the first time I saw it! LOL! I just LOVE that sentiment paired with the plate of bacon & eggs! Way to think outside the box on this one!!! :)
