CASology #24


Welcome to Week 24 of CASology!  Here's the cue card for this week:


I was really disappointed not to play along with last week's challenge but the sore throat I woke up with last Sunday ended up evolving into a nasty chest infection which completely wiped me out.  My voice is still not great and I'm tired and headachy but I really didn't want to miss another week so I ventured into the Craft Cave (for the first time in 8 days!) and came up with this little number.  I love stars and any star on a card makes me happy so this was a good challenge for me to get back in the crafting saddle.  The Design Team have created some fabulous star cards so go and check them out and then get crafting!

    

And this week's guest designer:


Link up your creations to the CASology blog and remember that submissions are due by 4pm CST Sunday, 23 December.

Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill

Stamps:  (Image & sentiment from Wise Men) Skipping Stones Design

Well, peee-yuuuu on being sick at the holidays :( Especially getting THAT sick. (I mean, go big or go home, but not when it comes to germs, kwim?)
And sick enough to be out of the Cave for 8 DAYS? It's like the crappiest Hannukah. 'eight phlegmy nights?' I'm glad you're feeling better!

A one layer beauty Jen. I hope you are feeling better...we have our oldest out with what sounds like the same thing as you. I hope you are back to 100% soon.

I'm getting into this challenge under the wire and catching up with all of you. I'm so sorry to hear that you caught that crud that's going around. It seems to hang on forEVER! I hope you've bounced back and haven't been crafting for the last few days because you are traveling or otherwise busy with the holidays!

Almost forgot - I love you star card!! Happy Christmas, Jen!!

The card -- very nice. The chest infection -- so not nice. Hope you're back to normal now!
