CPS108 and Card Casserole

Happy Friday everyone! I love Fridays, especially when they are the Friday starting spring break for my 2nd grader. She has 3 weeks to catch up on fun at home with her mom and little sister. This is when I LOVE the year round school schedule!

So today's card is what I call Card Casserole! My mom, thankfully, was not a mystery meat leftover veggie casserole maker when we were little. I don't know how we escaped that one but we did. Maybe we just had such good appetites there weren't any leftovers :) Anywhoo, back to the craft tabletop is a disaster area! I am so ashamed I can't even show you BUT at least it's a mess because I've been busy making stuff! Love that. In the process of trying to clean up, I always find usable bits that are too fun to throw out, too little to put away so I end up with Card Casserole! Hey! That's pretty catchy! Maybe one day I'll start a challenge here called Card Casserole ;)My crafty concoction is made with bits left over from the PTI blog hop, a PTI GSS submission 2 months ago and some die cutting and inking I did at retreat a month and a half ago! I grabbed a handful of stuff and this week's CPS sketch and came up this...

Not bad for a bunch of leftovers ;)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink
Dies: sizzix, SU!
Punch: Martha Stewart
Chipboard letters: KI Memories
Ink: SU!
Other: Zig Writer (black), button, dmc floss, felt flower (target $1 spot)

This is the kind of casserole I can take - I too never grew up on those! :) Love the bright, springy colors.

Thanks so much for playing along with the CPS sketch this week. I am so thrilled to be the sponsor and I am having a lot of fun playing along with the sketches too on my own blog – Hope you can check them out!

I already associate your work with all things "good tasting!" (I am inspired to describe your cards as, "yummy", "delicious," "sweet", etc.!) So now you are single-handedly curing the bad association some of us have with "casserole", and replacing it with rainbow colored JOY! Serve me up some casserole like that ANYTIME!

Love your reuse of the heart frame. I am with you -- I have to save all the little pieces. I have jars full of these little findings and I often get to reuse them.

Love your leftovers!! I had fun picking your card apart and figuring out which parts came from which project...I can be compulsive, what can I say?! :> Your leftovers came together really well! Love the stamped strips you used to fit the sketch!! :>
