Another CAS card for CAS(E) this sketch #132

As I said in my last post I had several ideas for sketch #132 of CAS(E) this sketch... That's why I am back so soon! And don't worry this time it is a card for a happier occasion!

Stamps: Hero Arts (flower), Technique Tuesday (sentiment)

The flower is heavily "winked" which is always hard to photograph. Here is a close up. Sorry it's not quite focused...


CAS(E) this sketch #132

a2z Scrapbooking July challenge "CAS"

And here are some more pictures from California. The last week we spent in the San Francisco Bay area on the coast. It was very hard to pick just a few from the many photos I took!
(You can see more pictures from our trip here and here)

Boardwalk in Santa Cruz
(Doesn't that roller coaster remind you of the die that SSS recently came out with?)

Big Sur

Along Highway 1 towards San Francisco
(Check out the coastal fog!)

That's about as much as we saw of the Golden Gate Bridge...


And look what I found when we came back! 

Even the potatoes were sad that we were away for so long...

If you made it through the whole post - my compliments!

And your card knocked my socks off with that sunny, sunny yellow! This is a sure winner to me!! Hugs, Darnell

  9. Beautiful CAS design with sparkle! poor potato! Thanks for joining in at a2z!

  10. A brilliant CAS with this bold yellow spark of color with the splendid Dahlia stamping. The WoS showed very intense in the closeup. The happy yellow shape looks lovely against the crisp whiteness. Enjoyed seeing the vacation photos..someone is a great photographer. Got a laff from the potato really does look like a reverse smiley! TFS & have a great wkend. Hugs

  11. Love your bright, sunny card with extra wink! It looks fab just like your photos. Hopefully it is happy enough to put a smile back on to your potato's face :)

  12. I am catching up on my reading and I find you have been very busy indeed since your return home. You are right about the die cut fern, such a calming color for a sympathy card. Now this cheerful yellow just says wake up and be happy!

  13. Wundervolle Bilder - da bekomme ich gleich Fernweh !!!! Allein bei der Achterbahn kommen meine Kinder wieder ins Schwärmen und !!! sie sieht aus wie die von SSS;)
    Und eine traumhafte Karten, aber das nur nebenbei !!
    Ganz liebe Grüße aus dem verregneten Deutschland Elisabeth

  14. stunning. Thanks for joining our challenge at a2z

  15. Brilliant take on the sketch.
    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  16. Wink and glitter are always out of focus around here! I LOVE all this bright yellow and that gorgeous flower in the corner! Brilliant use of this sketch! Your question about the Zigs...I think the 12 is fine if you like bright, vibrant colors. I'll be filling in with some of the lighter colors but I'm not in a big hurry. Besides the 12 pack was in my budget and came within a week versus shipping from Japan. I got them from Amazon.

  17. sehr schöne Karte, ich mag das feine Glittzer besonders :-)
    die Kartoffel sieht ja lustig aus :-))
    und sehr schöne Bilder aus euerem Urlaub die du uns zeigst

  18. Gorgeous happy card Susanne, looks like you had a great trip too. Cathy x

  19. Beautiful! A little {or lotta} wink of stella never hurt anyone ;) Thanks for joining us at a2z Scrapbooking!

  20. Deine Karte gefällt mir total gut! Das leuchtende Gelb auf dem weißen HG sieht echt toll aus! Schöne Fotos hast vom Urlaub mitgebracht! Wir waren vor ein paar Jahren mal drei Wochen lang im Westen der USA - eine fantastische Reise, die ich trotz Flugangst sofort wiedermachen würde!! .... bei der Golden Gate Brücke hatten wir damals glücklicherweise etwas weniger Nebel.

    1. ..... die Kartoffel ist super lustig :)

  21. Your shimmery, glimmery flower is a sunny delight! Fabulous take on the sketch. Your San Francisco photos...oh my! I was there years upon years ago (hit by a car while walking across the street...not a 'fond' memory...long story) and would like to go back...even though the thought of doing so makes me a bit nervous. Your pictures are enticing...and fabulous!

  22. That poor sad potato, must have been so glad to have you back home!! Love your holiday photos, did you go on the roller coaster in the first one?? Looks like an amazing time was had by all. Your card is super elegant and love the flower you used. All that white space is so delicious!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! They make my day!
