CASology #259


Welcome to Week 259 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:



 Guess what?  It's CASology's 5 year anniversary!  Yaaaaassssss!!  

We are celebrating today with a hop that includes design team members past and present as well as some of the generous companies that have sponsored us over the years.  You should have arrived here from Altenew.

I have had the honor of being on the design team since CASology began.  I was so thrilled when Melissa contacted me and asked me to be a part of the team - my first design team ever!  I could not have asked for a better experience over the last 5 years.  I have gotten to know and work with many amazing ladies through CASology and Melissa has been a wonderful leader.  Not only did she create a brilliant challenge but she is talented, sweet, funny and so easy going.  Thank you so much for bringing me along on this fabulous ride, Melissa!  I'm looking forward to the next 5 years!

Now it's time for you to hop along to Ardyth's blog.  Once you've reached the end of the hop we hope you'll dig out your balloon themed supplies and play along with us!




Link your creations to the CASology blog and remember that the deadline for entries is Monday at noon (CDT).

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper:  (Kioshi 12x12 collection) Basic Grey
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Birthday Wishes, Strings from Party Kit) Mama Elephant
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukeniko, (Grout Grey) My Favourite Things
