CAS(E) this Sketch #79

IMG_5172


Happy Monday!

I managed to get some crafty time in on Sunday to play along with this week's CAS(E) this Sketch #79.  I finally pulled out my NBUS Kelly Purkey, that I had to have and paid a small fortune for, washi tape for my take on the sketch. This week's sketch is partnered this week with Chaitali creator of the Iron Craft Challenge.  I am also playing along with my dear friend Darnell of djkkardcreations who is hosting an awesome challenge and giveaway to celebrate reaching 500 followers! That is one very popular lady who makes all of her guests at the Playhouse feel like one of the family. I am so glad that Blogger has added the 'jump to comment form' button because it is very tiring trying scrolling to the bottom of all Darnell's comments to add a new one.  Click on the link to her blog to read all about it!

I mimicked the strips on the sketch with washi tape and added a NBUS die cut thanks from Lawn Fawn.

Darnell J Knauss said...

I was going to tease you about adding a "jump to comment form" on your OWN blog, lol, after scrolling down and down and down to the bottom of these, but then it opened up into a comment box like magic! And I haven't even had any wodka!

Tracey, thank you so much for your heartfelt compliments and for joining in my NBUS Challenge! It's a pleasure being friends with you and I so appreciate your support and encouragement.

Your card is a classic Tracey card, recognizable across Blogland: a fantastic design layout, executed precisely and cleanly. I am aswoon over these patterns of WT that you've used! I shouldn't say this, but I can see why you kept them aside like fine jewels ... but ONLY for a little while! I'm proud of you that you let 'em rip to adorn this perfect sweet thank you card! Mwah! Darnell

Irish Cherokee said...

Excellent use of the washi tape and very creative.

Jen W. said...

I may have to start using that "click to jump" button for you too, Tracey! :) Love this Kelly Purkey tape - so perfect for a cheery thank you card! Thanks for playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

~Tammy~ said...

Totally awesome approach to the sketch! Love your WT! Fun stuff!

Joyce said...

I had to use that jump to comment button for your card, Tracey. See what happens when I am a day late to your party. Love this fun washi-fest on your card. And, it is a perfect opportunity to use that sweet die cut for a sentiment. I'm going to copy this idea as soon as I get a chance--I have a couple of washi rolls around here somewhere.

Lindsey said...

I pinned this card in about 2 seconds. I wash just looking at my washi tape 2 nights ago thinking I've got to figure out more ways to use this stuff. And I love this card, so the timing couldn't have been more perfect.

Sharron said...
