PEACE for CAS(E) this Sketch!.....

Hello everyone and happy Sunday: Well, I survived the Freaky Fun Zombie Run in Portage, IN. yesterday afternoon, as a matter of fact, my dear hubby, my daughter Adriana and two of my grandkids, Vanessa and Gabriel, survived it too. It was a 3 mile race through a beautiful wooded park with a few really freaky hills and totally freaky set ups with Zombies jumping at you trying to "eat" you and take your ''life'', which was a flag you had hanging on you. It was hilarious and fun and we all had a great time.  Our oldest daughter Gaby took pictures and video, which I will share as soon as she gives this to me. I finish in about 36 min. kind of slow but those hills were awful. The best time was after the race was over, the organizers had delicious grilled brats and hot dogs, chips, fruit, Gatoraide, juice for the kiddos and.....BEER!!!!! for the tired and sore adults, LOL!! some delicious Sam Adams October Fest, which tasted so good with my delicious brat. Oh, by the way.....I came in first in my 60-65 age group, and so did my hubby, Adriana (38) came in first in her 35-40 age group, Vanessa (17) and Gabriel (15) also came in first in their 15-20 age group, so it was a winning race for the Rodriguez/Alicea/Garcia family.
Ok now, changing the subject.....I have a card to share with you I made for the CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge this week, here is my card.
A very CAS card using an old Flourishes stamp called Peace and Joy (retired). I stamped the image onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it in gold, then I stamped part of one of the images from the Stampin Up! Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and I also heat embossed it in gold. I gave a bit of color to the Holly leaves with SU Certainly Celery marker.
That is it, a CAS card that I hope you enjoy.
Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me your comments, they always make my day.
Until next time, (I suspect later today) happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Thanks Patti, this is a simple image but the gold embossing really adorns it.
      That Zombie Run was a riot, the folks that organize it really go all out with the spooky and terrifying ''decor'', with little Zombies and big ugly Zombies plus, the food and delicious beverages (wink, wink) really restored our strength my friend, LOL!!
