Freshly Made and CAS-ology Cards

A couple of cards to share tonight, and first up is a card created for Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is the sketch . . .
And here is my card . . .


First and foremost, I love the lyrics . . . from Dear Prudence by The Beatles . . . "The sun is up, the sky is blue, it's beautiful and so are you." 

This was an unusual card for me.  I didn't use a single stamp or any ink.  It was purely cardstock, pattern paper and stickers, all leftover from a kit that I had for a mini album.  I love when I can use my supplies that are left from another project. 

Next up is a card created for CASology.  The Cue Card was "Sprinkle."  Here is my card . . .

So some sprinkles of salt . . . and a message to take life with a grain of salt.  Seasoning makes everything better!  

My shaken salt was created with Diamond Dust glitter, and the salt in the shaker with Stickles. 

I'm heading off on vacation in a few days . . . no crafting while I'm gone.  But I do hope to do a little creating before I head off.  And I hope you find some time to create as well.
