Unscripted Sketches # 189 and Addicted to CAS #2




Another card doing double duty.  

This is such a versatile sketch - the sky is the limit! Flip it clockwise, counter clockwise, upside down, right side up....get creative and show us what you've got! Click here to link up your creations to our latest sketch challenge at Unscripted Sketches. Take a minute to enjoy the beautiful cards that the DT has posted.

It was so nice to see so many beautiful entries in US #188.  Hopefully, you will find time during this busy holiday season to sit down at your craft table and play along with this sketch.

Addicted To Clean and Simple is the new kid on the block.  A challenge blog for the clean and simple with a DT that will knock your socks off with their talent and inspiration.  Take a minute and check it out. Thanks to Ardyth and Hannelie for the info on this new challenge :)

I die cut the Sizzlits Large Paper Doily (SU)  in red, white and green.  I then cut the center portion of the green (Lucky Limeade) with my circle nestabilities to form the Christmas ball.  I popped out all the wee pieces and fit in the contrasting colors from the other two doilies that I had punched.  Time consuming, yes...but I love the end result.  Added the new mini bow from Lil Inkers, a bit of bling in the center, some baker's twine and a SU sentiment.

  11. Did you change your blog design a bit? It seems like everyone is doing that, so now I don't know if I'm seeing things. (We will just leave that obvious comment alone.) It looks good in any event!

    Your card is stunning, Geri, and so perfect for the challenges! And it reminds me that I have that bow. It will be perfect for the last card I need to make for Amanda's order and so thanks for the reminder!

  13. It's taken me awhile, but I'm hoping to be fairly back on track--didn't mean to be late with this comment. Ok, so you have created something so simple, yet so lovely! What a classy card, girl! Love the bow; it's perfect! Sweet sentiment and the twine is perfect with this. You so rock!!!! It's just true. Bev. Blessed Christmas, Geri

  14. You make CAS look easy when it most certainly isn't...and as always, all elements are perfectly cut, constructed and laid out. Another showstopper!
