Happy #200 CASology.....

Hello Dear Friends: I posted this card yesterday but, something happened to the post, when I came to check it was gone so, I hope it's ok that I post it again for you, I always send the posts to myself so, I'm going to write it just like I did yesterday. I apologize if you came to see my card and there was nothing on the blog.

Hello dear friends: I've been AWOL for more than a week!!! my last post was on the 26th. of May but I haven't made a card longer than that. My hubby was on vacation for 10 days and, even if it's fun to have him around, at times it was a bit nerve wracking, LOL!! I really tried to come up here to my craft sanctuary but, hearing him trashing around in the kitchen or sweating bullets in the yard, made me feel kind of guilty and, to be perfectly honest, I really don't like to turn him loose in my kitchen, he tends to use every single pot or pan to make a simple pancake batter, bacon and eggs so, I rather go down there to keep my eyes on him.
But enough of this, lets get started, shall we?
The CASology challenge blog is celebrating it's 200th. challenge so, to celebrate, I made this card.


I used the sketch from "Less is More" and the CAS on Sunday request for us to use SPARKLE on our cards. This sweet image is from a super old "There She Goes" set, I stamped this cutie patootie onto a piece of Canson water color paper with Versafine Onix Black ink and colored it with SU inks and markers, the greeting is from a retired SU set called "Perfecly Penned" and it's also stamped with Versafine ink.  I fussy cut this little girl and used dimensionals to separate her from the diagonal piece of gold gitter paper, I also cut a little piece to add to one of the gifts.


I love her dress and boots in bright Daffodil Delight.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment and the little gift are from the same set.
Here are the banners that inspired my card.





CAS on Sunday
Use sparkle on your cards.
Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
