CASology 123 - Eat!


This week's CASology Cue Card is Eat.



What a perfect word for this time of year! Lots of feasting going on. I chose a simple Christmas treat - a Lil' Inkers Designs gingerbread man cut 4 times in Baked Brown Sugar and layered for some dimension. I used enamel dots as 'icing' and a Neat&Tangled sentiment. The frame is created simply with some old SU! dotted DP - I cut my square panel so that it would fit right inside the square of white dots.

This is a classic layout - small centred image over centred sentiment and lots of white space - pretty hard to go wrong with it!

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see the gallery this week - it's going to be a real pot-luck party!

Before you go, check out the blogs of the other DT Members for some more inspiration!

Okay, now you've caused me to add "make gingerbread people" to my winter bucket list. sigh. I really think we need a future cue word to be "treadmill" so it encourages me to use it...especially after this week! ;)
Love this adorable design! Polka dots always make me smile and that little gingerbread man is simply adorable!

Lovely card. Thank you for your comments on my blog. You asked how I manage to be on 9 design teams. My 2 daughters are grown up and I have 4 grand daughters, so no children at home. Last year at 68 I was made redundant at work so I am now retired. I am housebound due to Fibromyalgia and severe arthritis so I spend my days making simple cards, joining challenges and talking to the friends I have made on the internet, which helps to take my mind off the constant pain.

Wow!!! Your gingerbread cookie looks so real! Layering the die-cuts made a big difference. The icing was the perfect touch on your yummy card! May
