Addicted to CAS and CAS(E) this Sketch!

A very Happy Tuesday to you all,

It is a very, very happy Tuesday for me as hubby and I are off on our hols tomorrow morning. 2 weeks in sunny Cyprus. We can't wait to just relax and chill out in the sun and enjoy 2 weeks together with no worries except......is it a swimsuit or bikini day today!!

Today my card is for this week sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch and the 'teenager' challenge at Addicted to CAS. I decided I wanted to make a card for a girlfriend's friend who has just become a teenager and is still into pink but not frilly pink. So this is how I decided to go to cover this spec!!

(hover over the photo to and pin button will appear, click on here to pin to pinterest)

I am hoping this is just enough pink, not frilly but still kinda girly/grown up (that teenage thing!!) enough for her to love it.

The top speech bubble is heat embossed with melon powder and the other 2 are inked using different pink shades of memento inks. I have made the card super CAS by just scoring some lines.

And here is the sketch


Before I fly away to the sun, I wanted to say a big thank you to Jackie of Rockwell Designs. I know many of you know Jackie however I wanted to remind you of the fabulous design work she is now doing. She originally designed my blog and has recently been doing some changes for me. My sidebar is now all jazzed up and I have a funky 'pin' button when you hover over the photo of my card, so you can pin it to Pinterest. If you haven't joined Pinterest, try it out. It is full of inspiration. Click here to take a peek at my board to give you an idea. And on my side bar you can sign up to follow me on Pinterest.

Anyway, back to Jackie.........if you want to have a new blog design, give Jackie a shout here, the whole process was so easy. I explained my vision for my blog design and Jackie was able to convert this into what you know see and she has helped me keep on top of any changes I have wanted. Well worth checking her design blog out here.

Whilst I am away please still come and visit my blog on a Wednesday and a Saturday as I have scheduled my DT posts for Addicted to Stamps and More and Inkspirational. I am hoping to do some bog hopping whilst away but if not I will see you in a few weeks.

Take care my inky friends x
