CAS(E) this Sketch! Believe You Can

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



Sadly, this will be my last sketch with the team (although I am sure you will see many, many more CtS cards from me as a "player"!)  I have been with CAS(E) this Sketch since the beginning - October 11, 2012.  It's been sixty-six sketches and now I need to step away.  I made the decision at the beginning of the year to step away from most of my design teams so I can focus on the last year of my college program and begin the hunt for a new career.  Leaving this team was the hardest decision that I had to make - but it's probably time for some new blood for them too!!  A big thank you to Chrissy and to the rest of my teammates - many of whom have been there from the beginning.

For my card today, I didn't quite stick with the square.  I recently picked up a cloud die that I liked for the line along the bottom and then, with the Mama Elephant cloud die, I had to use one of their sweet animals from Up and Away (along with the new coordinating dies!) Besides, the message works for me right now - and this card still stay propped on my desk as I finish up my classes.

Believe You Can

Head over to CAS(E) this Sketch! and then play along.  I look forward to seeing what you create!
  • Stamps: Mama Elephant Up and Away, True Friend (sentiment)
  • Ink: Memento Black, Copics, Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise
  • Paper Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush, Summer Sunrise
  • Accessories: Landscape Trio dies, Up and Away dies, clear sequins
