CCC #229 and a Goodbye


cover

It's time for a new cue card at CASology!
On the heals of the holidays this is a two week challenge and hopefully you will be able to find a crafty moment to play along.

This week`s new cue is:



For my card I made a yummy toasted marshmallow. I started off by die cutting my shapes and then coloured my stick with Copic markers and then embossed with a woodgrain impressioin plate. The marshmallows were sponged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink for that lightly toasted look. I created a border with chocolate brown cardstock and the sentiment was also stamped in brown. The marshmallows were adhered with foam tape for dimension.

Thank you all so much for sending your good wishes and prayers to my mom last week.  I am happy to report that she is doing well and is now home. That was definitely my Christmas wish!

Hop on over to the CASology blog to see what the rest of the team has made to inspire you this week.
Can't wait to see what you make...

Now for a goodbye. This will be my last post as a design team member for CASology. I have been on the team since the very beginning on July 10, 2012, see my first post HERE. It was my first design team and 229 weeks later I am stepping down. I have needed to make some changes in my commitments and make more time for family and my health. The CASology team has been like a family to me and Melissa has been such a pleasure to work for, she is so talented and so organized. I will miss the amazing girls on the team and you can be sure that I will come back and play along with the cue cards as often as I can.  Thank you so much Melissa! xo

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the best for 2017!
