Addicted to Stamps and More! CAS #5, CAS-ual Fridays #86, and Paper Players #129 (CAS Sketch)

Hello dear blog friends and followers! Thanks so much for coming by to visit me today - I'm sure glad that you did.  My card today is for Addicted to Stamps and More! CAS #5 .  Many of  you had read me say that CAS is super challenging for me - argh!  But... I must say that I LOVE how this card turned out this week - Whoo Hoo!  I think that I am living proof that if you keep practicing something you will get better.  Not perfect - but better :o).  This darling image is from Bugaboo Digi Stamps who is the sponsor this week at ATS&M.  I colored it with my copic markers. I also used my Stamp-a-MaJig to line up the sentiment (from Stampin Up!) that was in block form (another practice pays off technique).  So far I haven't fallen off the New Year's resolution wagon and am continuing to decorate the inside of my cards as I make them. Here's the sentiment on the inside - one I picked up at a garage sale last year (kind of wish I would have put a brown layer on the inside too - oh well... baby steps):

I used the sketch from The Paper Players Clean and Simple Sketch #129 (see below) to help me make this card.  And I made it longer and narrower than usual so I can enter it in the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #86 (CFC86)" Long and Short" - meaning it has to have one long side and one short side (no standard A2 size this week) - this card is 3 3/4" x 6 ".

Whether you are a CAS master, a practicing CAS cardmaker like me, or a newbie to CAS cards, I really encourage you to check out our challenge this week at Addicted to Stamps and More! and hopefully decide to play along. I would love to come visit your blog and see your lovely creations!  The other ladies on the DT at ATS&M have prepared some more inspiration for you too - won't you go visit them and maybe leave them a note?  

Til next time... hugs and happy crafting!  D
