CASology - #110: Letter!


I ADORE CASology, the DT
and all of you players!!!

Love seeing what you come up with every week.
The week the CUE is LETTER!

This past weekend I got together with some PNW
crafting pals Amy Tsuruta and Kathryn Lorenzini
and I made elements of this card..
I chatted so much I had to assemble it later at home..

Right now I should be enjoying the Pacific Northwest Summer Weather in Port Townsend
This is our anniversary week and a tradition is to 
spend 3 - 4 days enjoying the
harbor town.  
Many things to do there if you stay!

Sweet mail.... I LOVE  Happy Mail!

I used Tim Holtz distress inks on a panel of Kromecote paper, 
stamped the exclusive July 2014 Simon Says Stamp Kit "Sending Happy Mail"
envelopes and cut and popped then up on foam.
The mini hearts are from the Mama Elephant XOXO set.
I used copics to add interest over the op of the letters.

I sure hope that you are INSPIRED to join along!
