CASology #197


Welcome to Week 197 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


This week's cue word is really versatile.  It can be a noun or a verb and just by changing the pronunciation you get two totally different meanings of the word.  Originally I was going to go for tear (as in crying) and make a sympathy card but then I stumbled across this NBUS Newton's Nook stamp and decided to go for the other tear, as in to rip!  Newton is certainly one naughty cat but he's so darn cute...

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design and then play along!

Just spotted your card on the challenge blog. It's totally cute and I love the addition of the one word sentiment. Just brilliant!
We have 2 ginger cats (plus 3 others), but the ginger ones love scratching the few removal boxes that are still standing in the corner of our bedroom. Maybe they are trying to get a message across...

This is so clever - the rips in the cardstock are absolutely amazing and Newton's colouring is perfect and perfectly complemented by the teal background!

Your card is ingenious! It popped out among the rest for this cue word Tear, you really nailed it! I love it.

Bah ha ha...what a cute card! Love it! The claw marks definitely add to the naughtiness. The orange color of the cat totally stands out against the teal.
