CASology #30


Welcome to Week 30 of CASology!  Here's the cue word for this week:


When I saw this week's cue word I googled Grimm's Fairytales.  I had no idea how many tales there actually are!  I ended up being so overwhelmed by all the titles that I hastily closed that page and decided to simplify.  Princesses are a fairytale staple and I always call my goddaughter Princess.  Her birthday isn't for a few months but it's never to early to make a card is it?  I swear I'm either cutting and gluing like a mad woman at the last minute or I'm ready months in advance.  I really need to find some middle ground!  LOL! Anyway, I'm really excited to see all the entries for this week so check out the DT cards and then get crackin'!



And this week's guest designer:

I googled Fairy Tale and if you think Grimm wrote a lot, wait til you get into all the Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian etc, etc, etc, ones! That would be a big read! This is a perfect card for a little girl - I love the blingy crown!

Oooh, this is going into my crafty vault for the future! I love the little crown balanced just so, and you can't go wrong with that fun sentiment :)
BTW, I refer to our tabby cat as Princess Fluffybutt. She is most definitely a princess in attitude, and well, you can guess where the other part came from ;)

I loooove the combination of die cut and stamped words! The pp you used to back the die cut princess is perfect as is that crown used to embellish the "p"!
