CAS(E) this Sketch! Hello and Have Faith

This is my second post today.  The Alley Way
Stamps blog hop is just a short scroll away!

It's time for a new sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch!  I predict lots and lots of people will play along because everybody love pennants and flags!

I went for a bright and cheerful "hello" simply because it was a good chance to use a variety of papers from a fun pad of paper!  This is a lot of patterns for me, but backed with all of that white - it still feels CAS.


I have two cards for you today.  I actually started in an entirely different direction and was quite happy with the result, then I realized that I had used the same soft patterns last week.  (Not that anybody but me would notice!)  I did want you to see this though, mainly because of this wonderful sentiment.

Know that He will

Be sure to play along this week - it's a great sketch and, obviously, you can go in lots of directions!

Both cards are amazing, Kim. I love the die cut word in the first but the serenity of the 2nd card is also very nice. Happy Thursday!

Two stunning cards, Kim! You've given me great ideas with your first one, as I have that patterned paper (part of my SSS splurge!). Excited to play with some patterns, words and dies! Thanks for the inspiration, and especially the comments on my blog - sparkles added to my day! Have a terrific Thursday.

Love the waffle texture white with all those wonderful colours and patterns on your first card, Kim ... the second is gorgeously soft and gentle, and with such a perfect (and true) sentiment! Anita :)

Kim I LOVE the white space and pops of color and pattern you added to the first card!!!! Just beautiful!!

Two Kim beauties on one post is icing on the cake to end the day!! Your eye for color and what colors to use with what design elements and sediments is incredible, Kims. You have a teaching blog and I am a grateful student!!
