CASology #13


Welcome to Week 13 of CASology!  Here's our cue card for this week:


After struggling last week because I hardly had any shoe images, this week I suffered from an abundance of choice in the zoo department!  I finally settled an on elephant from My Cute Stamps.  I first paper pieced him with pattered grey paper but it was way too busy so I went for solids and ended up with a colour blocked look which is clean and crisp.  How many critters do you have in your stamp zoo?  Can't wait to see them!  But first go and check out the rest of the DT and their fabulous creations:



Also this week's guest designer:


Link up your creations to the CASology blog and remember that submissions are due by Sunday, 7 October at noon CST.

Hmm, you'd think the cue card was 'elephant' today, wouldn't you! Great minds think alike! Love your paper piecing - it's a great way to use really rich colours!
