You Rock!

Well, since we are "snowed in" here in Charleston, SC spending more time in the craft room!  So you "northerners" can get a good laugh at your southern brothers and sisters, I have attached below a photo of our "winter storm" below:

Yep, that was all we got last night!  Of course we do not know how to drive on "icy" roads and since the temperature is still in the 20s here, the town has just about completely shut down.  No complaints here - I am in my craft room, crafting away!

I decided to check out a new sketch challenge today over at CAS(E) this Sketch.   CAS stands for "Clean and Simple" which is pretty much how I roll. :)  Means basically one or two "layers" on your card and simple on the embellishments.   The sketch they provided for this week is this:

I turned the sketch sideways and instead of putting sentiment to the bottom (or to the left) of the image, I added some hard metal eyelets to keep with the "hard metal" feel of my card.  Here is my card:

I can see this card being given to a teenager for a birthday or even on a special day for a "job well done" whether that be for bringing home a good report card, or helping out around the house, or whatever.  Not my normal color combinations or format, but I think it turned out CAS(E).

Card Ingredients:

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Whisper White
Images:  Stampin' Up! Extreme Elements, Friends Rock
Ink:  Stampin' Up! Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and Close to My Heart Black
Other:  Stampin' Up!  Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets

Happy Crafting!
