CCC #89

IMG_4163


This is one of four posts for today!

Time for a new cue card at CASology!
How fitting for today!





When creating my design I followed the guidelines for CAS again:

1.  One main image
2.  Lots of open space (uncluttered)
3.  Limited layers & embellishments
4.  Quick & easy to recreate

I created a smaller panel for my image and sentiment primarily because when I use Copic markers I don't want recipient to see the marker bleed when they open the card. Also because it is such a tiny image it may have been lost without the smaller panel to ground it.

Head on over to CASology today to learn what the 'cue card' means to you, how you can play along and see the all the cards created by the Design Team to inspire you.

OMG, this is just too cute and absolutely true. At least in my house.

Yep....I agree! I don't iron anymore because I just never liked it. Now, if I could find someone to vacuum for me I'd be in heaven! Perfect card!

Cute idea, Tracey. I do use my iron occasionally, though. For quilting, oh, and ironing embossing powder off a card. lol

Tough challenge this week but you totally nailed it! Laughing here!

Shona Chambers said...

This is so me!! Like one of the other comments I would much rather vacuum than iron. My Mum has just retired and now does my families ironing but she gone to visit family in Australia for a month, the ironing is driving me insane!! Gorgeous card by the way....ultra perfect CAS!

Joyce said...

This is so cute. And, I totally agree with your sentiment.

Katie Ann Brooks said...

Seriously funny! Love the cue and your take.

Tee hee! This is such a fun Sweet Stamp Shop set! Love the tiny touch of colour in the heart and I'd probably iron more if I had a cool one in that colour! :)

Kim Heggins said...

Too too cute!!! But I have to admit, I love to iron and iron all my clothes. I have the cutest Mickey and Minnie Mouse ironing board cover too, it makes me smile while ironing!
