CASology #210


Welcome to Week 210 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:


The word dizzy makes me think of spinning around and something that does a series amount of spinning is a tornado.  We don't have huge scary tornados here like in the US but we do have some.   They often occur within hurricanes (which we've had plenty of) but we're more likely to see waterspouts off of the north shore.  ( A waterspout is just a tornado over water instead of land).  I've only seen a few but they're pretty cool to watch (from a safe distance!)

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!

I don't like tornadoes at all but do like your fun card!

I love how the diagonal striped paper reinforces the movement of your tornado, Jen! Terrific card!

Becca Cruger said...

Using the patterned paper for that tornado was a perfect choice!! So cute.

Lindsey said...

What a good idea to use repeat stamping to add even more motion to your dizzying tornado!

LOVE how you did that repeat faded stamping!! Absolutely perfect for the cue! I am grateful that we don't get hurricanes either! We've had the odd cyclone, but nothing like they get in the northern most part of our state, or Darwin! There have been some shockers!

I agree with what everyone has said so far!! Perfect stamp, awesome patterned paper for paper-piecing that image, and super repeat stamping! Usually tornadoes aren't cute, but these sure are!
