CASology #140


Welcome to Week 140 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:



Despite the way the weather is behaving in some places it is now officially spring in the northern hemisphere.  Spring makes me think of Easter and Good Friday and here in Bermuda Good Friday means kite flying, codfish cakes and hot cross buns!  In that regard, this new Paper Smooches sentiment works perfectly for me with this older PS kite image.  I did some simple paper piecing and let the kite string lead the eye to the bright coloured sentiment.  

Your turn now!  Check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the design team and then get craftin'!




And this week's guest designer:

Link your creations to the CASology blog and remember that the deadline for entries is Monday at noon (CST).

 I'm also going to enter this card in a few other challenges:
