CASology CUE Card #68: BLACK!

CASology CUE Card #68: BLACK!

This week's CASology CUE is BLACK
I thought of SEVERAL things, silhouettes, so I did a citys cape,
and I HAD to add a regional landmark of course!  
The SPACE NEEDLE!

What does BLACK conjure up for you?
We will be so happy to see what you come up with!



I thought also of blackboards and the current recently popular chalkboard effects.
 I finally did a card featuring this 
"Folk Floral" stamp I thought was perfect for a chalk board card.


On the subject of the Needle:
EDIT to ADD: 
Check out this adorable pic of my boy a few weeks ago --fun pic on the ferry!
He didn't think it was so funny, thus the face, until he saw the pics....

merry and bright christmas: Lawnscaping Challenge!

merry and bright christmas: 
Lawnscaping Challenge!

I saw this card as I was pinning CAS cards.
I also adored it when I saw it CASED 
 by Joyce of  Cards-by-the Sea

And I really wanted to do it too.. alas I don't have the awesome new mamaelephant
set that was originally used.. 
When I saw Lawnscaping challenge for pinterest, I thought, 
what can I do? 
 I looked at my pin boards for leaves and wanted to do a graphic card.  
I saw this, and I thought -what about a tongue in cheek CAS of
Laura Bassen's card???!

This makes me giggle!
Supplies:
Lawn Fawn cozy Christmas set
Glossy Accents
Copics

Laura Bassen is an absolute Goddess of Card Making!
