CASology #152


Welcome to Week 152 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


I was recently asked to make a birthday card with a lighthouse on it so this cue word came along at the perfect time for me.  I inked up this Lawn Fawn image for the first time and did some simple Copic colouring.  I didn't want to just slap a "Happy Birthday" onto a card with a lighthouse so I combined a couple of different sentiments to come up with this one in order to bring the lighthouse and the birthday theme together.  

There are lots of directions you can take this nautical theme - just check out the gorgeous creations from the Design Team for some inspiration and then play along!



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).

Love the light shining on your sentiment! And the sweet little lighthouse itself is such a fun image. It's great how your request for a specific card and the cue card came together at just the right time. This is a great birthday card. Love it. Bev

I really like this — a very original take on the cue word! I so want to play this week. Will it happen? Time will tell...

Fantastic way to make your lighthouse sentiment. Love the way you've got the light coming out of the house too.

See, I probably would have just slapped on a happy birthday, but YOU are brilliant and added that cool light beam and perfect sentiment. That is why YOU rock!
