CASology #130


Welcome to Week 130 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


I love this Mama Elephant sentiment.  In fact, I think I bought this stamp set purely because of it but have I used it yet?  Of course not.  So I was thrilled to see this week's cue word because it gave me the perfect opportunity to ink it up (as well as another chance to enter Darnell's NBUS challenge!).

I knew I wanted to pair two little critters with the sentiment but it took a lot of flipping through bins of stamps before I finally landed on these Lawn Fawn birdies (also NBUS).  The idea of these two little guys as gangstas totally cracks me up!  I bet they could be badass if they needed to be…

Anyway, now it's your turn to show us how the word friend inspires you.  Hop on over to the CASology page to check out the brilliant inspiration from the Design Team gals and then play along!

Oh, such a cute card, Jen!!! Did you paper pieced the critters? It looks one-layer to me. I'm glad you used colored card base not white. It really caught my eyes! May

Oh, Jen, just when I think I've seen it all, there is a new (to me) sediment that rocks my world! I want this!! A small gang, what a hoot and what a PERFECT sediment for a BFF! Pairing it with these two badass gangland "chicks" was pure Jenius!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #3 again!! Hugs, Darnell
