Happy Friday, peeps!  Happy May Day!  Just a quick, CAS card for you today…check out this CAS(e) This Sketch sketch:

I got this idea from a card on page 4 of the Occasions catalog, and I was excited to try it out.  One of my club projects this month used the Stacked With Love DSP, so I had all these little strips left over.  I colored the white portions of all the strips with various colors of markers, except for Pistachio Pudding…since I didn’t have a PP marker, I just laid the strip face down on the foam and pressed it gently into the ink…worked like a charm!  Here we go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Amazing Birthday Thank You Stampin Up

I stamped some background interest with Craft White ink and Gorgeous Grunge, and although you can’t see it too well here, I hand-stitched the panel on to the card and added a bow.  The sentiment is from Amazing Birthday (one I never inked up before!!!), I colored it with markers and stamped some polka dots on top from Festival of Trees:


And it’s tough to see, but the white banner is Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper…very cool-looking IRL! Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy treats her dolls just as if they were real people and she wants real experiences!  Here, she is “potty-training” her Baby Alive doll, complete with having the toy potty in the bathroom.  She wanted food-coloring in the water she was feeding her, but I drew the line at that!



She’ll be a good mommy some day!


  1. Love your card, great use of your leftover strips. Karen x

  2. Fun card! Don't you just love some of the things the munchkins come up with? Sometimes I'd love to crawl into Boy's head just to see what goes on in there and other times that thought absolutely terrifies me. LOL!

  3. What a fabulous way to interpret the sketch! The banners look so cool!

  4. I LOVE your take on the sketch!! This is such great card!

  5. Oh, I love those patterned banners! Great take on the sketch!
