CASology #187


Welcome to Week 187 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


I love this fan image (unfortunately retired) from Sweet Stamp Shop and I thought of it immediately when I saw this cue word.  I also love the "fan-freakin-tastic" part of the sentiment so I wanted to highlight it when I made the card.  I found a stripe stamp that fit the sentiment perfectly and stamped it in Poppy Parade.  Then I paper pieced the fan, popped it up on foam tape and added a gem to the centre of it.  Clean and crisp with a pop of fun color from the stripe.  And now it's over to you guys -  check out the fabulous inspiration from the design team and then play along!  



And this week's guest designer:

Love how you did the sentiment, and your paper pieced fan is a fantastic image. I could use that fan in my spin class, as it is always nice to have a breeze when I am working hard.
