i couldn't wait to get started on making a card for the latest CAS(E) this sketch challenge! i had this idea in my head, and it basically turned out exactly like i imagined! what?!

here's the sketch:

and here's my card:

i even got out my sewing machine for this one! i LOVE sewing on my paper crafts, but it's sort of a pain sometimes to lug it out, set it up, sew, clearn it up and put it away! i wish i could leave it set up all the time...but these little menn here have little hands that would LOVE to take my sewing machine for a spin! lol! 

anyway, ok. so i used mama elephant stamps - cosmic stars and polar pals! the little lion (leo!) was paper pieced and adhered to those FUN studio calico circles! then i fussy cut a heart out from the polar pals set and then added some sparkly icicle stickles to it. the sentiment is some tiny type from october afternoon.

i LOVE this card! i hope it makes you smile! and if it doesn't at least it's friday! that's enough to smile about! :)
