CAS on Friday: Applesolutely Awesome

I needed a quick card to mail to my youngest son.  My husband recently told me that on their 15 hour drive to take him to college, my husband was fiddling with the car vent scent thing that my son loves and broke it.  So I marched my husband right down to Yankee CandleCompany and had him buy a supply of Macintosh Car Scent Vent Clips.  After all, he broke it - he should replace it! 

As a cardmaker, I can't just mail them - the package had to include a card! And with the apple scented car things, what a perfect time to tell my son he is "applesolutely awesome!"

9.23.21 CAS on Friday

Whenever I need to do a quick card, I absolutely need a challenge to get me started and preferably a sketch challenge.  And with perfect timing, the CAS on Friday sketch worked!! 

The apples and sentiment are Everyday Doodles and Everyday Punnies by Julie Ebersole at the Ellen Hutson store.  They have been real go-to's for me especially for these quick cards. They are so cute and charming, it doesn't take much to fill the card. The images are just what they say - doodles - with solid images to fill them in. There's quite a variety in the sets to fit many occasions and all really cute.

  6. While I'm still not fully back in blogland (commenting, posting...), I did want to stop by and say how wonderful this card is. It's applesolutely brilliant. Might have to CASE it! I'm sure your son will love it, along with the car vent clips that go along with it. It's 'delicious!' Bev
