CASology #14


Welcome to Week 14 of CASology!  Here's the cue card for this week:


Pretty appropriate as it's autumn in the northern hemisphere.  Not here though.  So far October has been hotter and more humid that September.  Weird.  Anyway I decided to cast my mind back to my college days on Long Island where we actually had autumn and the leaves changed colour.  I fussy cut and coloured some leaves from PTI's In Bloom and used one of the fabulous over-sized sentiments from Market Street Stamps' Great Big Greetings. I was actually inspired by this card by Stephanie Washburn.  I love how the leaves pop off the white background.  So how does the cue card inspire you?  I can't wait to see what you come up with this week but before you get started have a look at the gorgeous creations by the rest of our super talented design team:

It's an absolutely beautiful way to say you're thinking of someone and send Fall beauty at the same time.

LOVE the colours & the dimension! Boo, hiss on the humidity - finally we're relieved of it, though it was again up to 97% over the weekend. I think (knock wood) it's done now.

Gorgeous leaves the way you've coloured them, Jen! Our leaves are certainly turning here, and the temperature has dropped. I'll happily take your weather -- well, except maybe for the humidity. :D

Beautiful coloring and layering of the leaves, Jen! All that clean white space really makes them pop.
