CAS(E) this sketch...

I am dragging this morning. Are you?  It was a late night.  I am happy to say that I didn't eat any of my kids candy.  I really wanted to but I left that up to my husband.  Every time I looked at him, he was eating something.  And he's skinny too.  No fair.  So here I am trying with all my will power....which I normally have none...and I succeeded in having one mini size Butterfinger last night...and that is it.  Now its a new day and there are 2 buckets of candy in the other room.  I do hear the snickers calling.  But my goal is to ignore it.  Let's see how long I can manage.  I will let you know how it goes.  It can be an accountability thing right?  :)

On to my card....

This card is based on the sketch below by the lovely Lisa.  I love these CAS sketches each week!  I used CAS-ual Friday Stamp set called Big Thanks.  I added some black leaves and rolled flowers and of course, some bling.  Here is this weeks sketch....


Check out the CAS(E) this sketch blog to see all of the DT creations.  I am so glad you came by today and I hope you had a fun nigh last night.  We had a Trunk or Treat at church.  I sat in the back of my car and passed out candy and asked Bible trivia.  It was so cute to see all the little people dressed up and answering questions about their favorite bible stories.  

Thanks so much for coming by today!  Have a great day!

  1. Lovely card. I like the dotted circles. And congratulations on resisting the candies. I love Butterfingers and my DH does not so I'm glad we don't have any of those around our house. With the candies we do have in our house my weakness is the Reeses peanut buttercups. Wish me luck resisting those.

  2. Lucky skinny husbands! I feel your pain Laurie! My husband opened our trick-or-treater candy stash on Tuesday and I did so great, I had zero! On the actual Halloween day, I can't say I did as well. :( Oops. (Love your card!)

  7. Love your take on the sketch! The red just pops off the aqua! Great card as always.

    Glad I'm not a big candy lover. Snickers can tempt me now and then, as do the peanut butter cups but all in all, not an issue. Now put a bag of chips in front of me and that is an issue LOL! Be strong - you can do it!

  9. Oh I LOVE your card... perfect interpretation of the sketch, and the rolled flowers add just so much.

    I got away with eating only one Coffee Crisp... but it's only the day after, and since my kids are little (4 and 2), it's not like they can eat it all, right? ;)

  10. Love it Laurie! I hear you on the candy. I allowed myself one bite size Snickers, but that's it! And so hard when Reese's peanut butter cups are my favorite and the kids don't like them!

  12. Gorgeous card, Laurie - love the color combo! Good job on resisting the candy as well. I'm lucky to be in Switzerland - I couldn't resist if I was back home in the states - but, like they say, out of sight, out of mind!

  16. Awesome job with the sketch!

    I baked last week end and put everything in the freezer. It was suppose to be gifts for other people, and, I thought it would be safe frozen. Not so much -- it screamed my name too loud. Good luck using your will power -- mine died :) lol
