I have a couple of things to share for CAS(E) This Sketch.

The gentleman who usually sits behind me at church (and yes we are creatures of habit and sit in the same place every week!LOL. I bet you do too!) fell yesterday and broke his hip. I went to my stash to find a get well card for him and found I have very few and no masculine ones. So I used the sketch to make a card for Tom.
I added a strip sticker from an EcoPark scrapbook kit to the "board" paper strip. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn punched with oval punch and centered on a Kraft oval. The black chevron is Washi tape.
Inside I did a sentiment with the "lumber" font on the computer and lightly colored it brown. Then accented with the tape and 1 cutout of the diamonds.
 The other share is the same sketch design on a gift bag for a birthday coming up soon. 

I think you call this "upcycling". My Mom received a gift in the bag and then gave the bag to me to reuse. It had a sticker on the top edge that needed to be covered. I used DPs from SU for the banners. I diecut a label from Kraft, punched an oval and used a sentiment from The Angel Company. A big red button tied with twine adds accent.


  1. Aww...What GORGEOUS creations Donna!!! Love each one :)

  2. I need to make some more get well cards, too. Love the design of yours. And what a great idea for the gift bag.

  3. Great masculine card -- wonderful take on the sketch!
    Lovely packaging, too!
