CAS(E) this Sketch! Bear Hugs

It's time for a new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!


I like this sketch, mostly because I LOVE my card!!  Is that bad to say?  If I post a card, I generally like it, but some cards just stand above the others in my mind.  I think this card is just charming - because of that sweet little bear and because of the happy accident of a smudge that needed to be covered, thus the heart balloon and the balloon string made out of a bee trail.  Most of my crafting accidents involve bad words or, in the case of a spilled glass of red wine, lots of tears.  But I love how this one worked out!

Bear Hugs

I hope to see you play along.  Once again, the design team at CAS(E) this Sketch! has a huge variety of cards for your inspiration.  I instantly saw a shelf of some kind, but the team has turned this sketch into a soup pot, and a feather and a clothesline - it's very flexible!!

  • Paper: white, Simple Stories Snap Color Vibe
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Coastal Cabana, Memento Black, Copics

I can see why you love this card. I'm in complete agreement. I love it also.
It's it great how we become so wonderful at fixing boo boos. You picked a terrific way to hind your smudge. Enjoy your week.

Accident? What accident? :-)
You made me curious what happened before the heart balloon and the bee trail...
Smudge... we never smear in our craft spaces now do we? ha, ha.
Why does it always look like a a bomb just went off?
Anyway, your card IS adorable and very cute indeed.
Do the Sprinkles hide something as well we need to hear about, ha, ha.
I'm sorry, got carried away by your story I guess. :-)
Sooo very funny and I think we can all relate to that.
Bye and thanks for sharing and offering these tailormade solutions,

Marjolein :-)

Ps. it's just so funny, keeps me smiling, ha, ha.
