IB97, CTS55 & CASology 71

DSCF9286

Phew, I finally got a chance to stamp some challenges!!  I made a card using a color combo a bit unusual for Christmas!

Inspired By 97:

I also used the CASology Cue Card, which was Bell; and the cool sketch from CAS(e) This Sketch:

Of course, I was working from memory and didn’t put the sentiment in quite the right spot, but I still love this:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Joy & Bell Christmas Card

After seeing Sandy’s sweet card here, I followed her example and masked off an area onto which I wheeled my music in Soft Sky, then added the sentiment from The Sounding Joy in Midnight Muse:

Lastly, I added a diecut bell in gold, some Soft Sky branches and a little shabby bow from my stash of dyed seam binding…I actually had the perfect color!  Another Christmas card for my supply!

Cassidy found a plastic model house from the 60s that my grandmother used for a Christmas display…it’s actually for a train set….and insisted that Grampy help her assemble it:

Here, she is telling Grampy that when she gets older, she will put it together without his help!  And yes, she is wearing a Halloween shirt…she likes it.

I was just about to start a Casology card but my idea was pretty much identical to this! You've pulled it off so perfectly LeAnne II'll have to try and think of something else lol!

What a wonderful card for those challenges! I love the colors and musical sheet! I love that old house Cassidy and her grampy put together too - and I'm especially amused with the old tv antenna on the chimney! I wish we had those days of free tv back again!
