CASology #8



Welcome to Week 8 of CASology!  Here's the cue card for this week:



When I think of relaxing I think of sofas and naps!  I'm a big fan of both.  :)  And so are a lot of dads I know so I went very specific for this card and made a Father's Day card.  Yes, I'm about 10 months early but at least it's one in the stash for next year so for once I'm ahead of the game! 

Be sure and check out the rest of the design team for some fabulous inspiration!

It would be almost perfect in my family, except it's missing a footstool and a remote control!

Way too clean a sofa for our house ;) lol! I definitely love the upholstery pattern, though - I'm pretty sure we had one close to that in the early childhood poverty years (as we called our decorating scheme, lol)

So sweet and simple....and cozy, Jen. I never could nap, but would love to learn! I love the white space on this one, too.

Perfect timing, Jen! I'm just now looking for inspiration for my fathers' day cards this week-end! Fathers' Day is Sunday 2 September here. :-) Love your card, and wondering just how I can copy it with my own supplies, LOL! ;-)

Super Father's Day card! I'm sure a Father would be glad to stretch out on this couch and relax. So CAS and comfy.

Love, love, love that set!! (Just pulled out the sentiment from On My Couch).

Aileen said...

Very relaxing! love the orange on the sofa. x

Jenny said...

I just always love when that set is used on a card, so many different designer fabrics, I mean papers, to make it from and I love how you've used it to interpret the challenge Jen :0)
