CAS(E) this Sketch! #3

We are already on our third sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! and I cannot believe how exciting it has been - hundreds of entries each week!  The biggest "problem" that I am having is the number of new-to-me blogs that I am finding and loading into my Google Reader - pretty soon I will be spending all of my time reading other's blogs and not working on my own!

This week's sketch is quite flexible - check out the CAS(E) this Sketch! blog to see what the design team has done with it - you can see the sketch in each creation but other than that they are all completely different!



I decided to use a stamp set that was a completely spontaneous purchase for me.  It's from neat & tangled and it took me back to my childhood.  Do you remember cartoons like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer?  Of course you do because these days it plays 100 times on 20 different TV channels, not to mention the DVD, before Christmas.  In the good old days - it only played once - and that made it so special and magical.  My family looked forward to it every year.  We brought out the TV trays and were allowed to eat dinner in the living room.  We sat around our small little TV (with three channels and no remote) and we sang along with the songs and fell in love all over again with the charming elves...

Totally remember watching those Christmas specials every year! The Charlie Brown one was a staple too.
