CASology #115


Welcome to Week 115 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


Lots of delicious ideas popped into my head when I saw this week's cue word.  Betty Crocker Devil's Food Cake being the number one drool inducing option.  Yes, you read that right.   Betty Crocker.  Out of a box. I'm pretty picky about cake.  Nothing too fancy or too chocolately or too dense or too rich.  Simple simple simple.  And then I thought of Maltesers which are my favourite chocolates.  Again, not too chocolately - just enough.  Mmmmm…  Anyway despite all these visions of sweet things dancing in my head I ended up going in a totally different direction.  Given my job there's another type of chocolate that I see a lot of and that is Chocolate Labs!  While I have a lot of dog stamps this was the only one that I thought really resembled a Lab and given that he seems a little sad to me I thought he'd do well starring in a Miss You card.    

And now it's your turn to inundate us with chocolatey goodness!  Go and check out the gorgeous creations from the Design Team and then get to work!

I tried so hard to do a chocolate lab card, but my dog stamps didn't fit! Well done! Love the classic feel of the plaid, too!

Clever, clever, clever! I love how you stamped on a kraft base. It really adds so much to the card!

Love your chocolate lab missing you card. He does look a little forlorn. I have a rescue dog who is part lab, and this doggie does look a bit like mine.

Lindsey said...

This is such a sweet (and slightly melancholy!) card, Jen.

Oh, yes, he does look mournful, gorgeous thing! Such a fab lab and that plaid patterned paper is perfection with it. So clever.
