While at Sandy’s last week, we found a new challenge, Can You Case It?  At least it was new to me!  Here’s the sketch from this week:
CYCI #43
I needed a nice “just because” card, so I searched through some of my papers and found a couple of pretty pieces from the Lullaby DSP line, so I went to work:
LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Papillon Potpourri Just Because Stampin Up
I pulled out the colors of Baked Brown Sugar, Pistachio Pudding, Coastal Cabana and Hello Honey for my layers and elements.  The vertical panel is the banner from Amazing Birthday, which I trimmed down; and the butterflies are from Papillion Potpourri. I stamped the sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts on a torn piece of Pistachio Pudding, then colored some pearls gold with a retired Zig Painty pen and added some gold baker’s twine:
I love the combination of colors in this paper!

In keeping with her propensity to line things up, Cassidy decided to string up the pumpkins on our porch:

She was quite busy for several minutes!!!  Enjoy your day!

Oh my goodness could Cassidy be any cuter. What a great idea. A string of pumpkins. I use to have pumpkin lights in my classroom.
I love the card. Another great layout too. I need to make a bunch of birthday cards this month. I have to come back and do some lifting. LOL
Have a great Monday!

I like the colors you used LeAnne, this is so pretty! That little floral butterfly is super sweet. I think Cassidy will grow into a great organizer...a place for everything and everything "lined up" in it's place!!! Trust me, I get that and am always straightening things LOL!!!
