CAS(E) This Sketch 78 - a little bit of snow

Hello!

Often when I start making a card with a sketch as an inspiration, I stick really close to the sketch. Sometimes I wander happily away on a little tangent. I think that may be what I've done with this week's card for CAS(E) This Sketch, lol! I started with water in mind and ended up with snow!
I used Mama Elephant stamps Merry Greetings and No Peeking. I added some buttons and sequins to finish it off.
It should be Winter here in Australia right now. Instead we're experiencing the hottest Autumn on record in Brisbane, and the temperatures are still high. Today was like Summer. It's crazy. My eldest daughter exploded this morning with, "Where is Winter? I love Winter! I love cold weather! It's too hot!" I agree with her. Tonight at 10pm it is 25c in our home with all the windows open. Too hot even for the doona, sigh!

Speaking of doonas, it's really time for bed! Thank-you for visiting. I hope you can spare some time to visit the rest of the CTS team ---> see over on the sidebar for the links, and then I hope you also find a little extra time to make a card and join in the fun!

Catch ya later!

Wonderful take on the sketch Michelle. I love the delicate lines of the falling snowflakes. I don't know about you but I never want Winter to come so extra warmth sounds great to me:)

Great card Michelle. Love all the aspects, that Twinkle all the way so goes with the snowflakes. Cant argue with you about the weather either. Im in Sydney and missing that cooler weather too. Makes you wonder if the seasons are swapping places!

Hi Michelle,

Sorry to hear you are sizzling over there - we are just starting our summer here, a nice mix of even temps, nice breezes and everything still green. Hope it cools down for you.

Your card is darling, like the simplicity of it - the slowflakes delicate.

Blessings,
Barb
