CASology #199


Welcome to Week 199 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


You guys knocked it out of the park last week with the Stencil cue word!  I had a really long "short list" and I struggled to pick a winner.  So many great CAS designs!

This week's cue word is a fun one and great to get your mind churning for Father's Day and just guy cards in general (which aren't always the easiest).  I stuck to one layer and minimal embellishments for my card.  I know some people might raise their eyebrows at bling on a guy card but I think it can work in small doses.  :)

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!

Love the vroom vroom!! This is too cute!

Perfect guy card and super fun take on the cue word!! That patterned paper strip is a great detail!! And I don't think guys are opposed to shiney things---especially when paired up with any kind of motorized vehicle!! Awesome work!

Wonderful color scheme, and I love how your car is practically gone, off the edge of the page and on to its next adventure.

Your elements combined here just make for an awesome card Jen!

And now I want to own a race car stamp. :D This is such a great card, and the *road* is stamped perfectly! Obviously everything is, but the road!
