CAS(E) this Sketch #90

Hi, everyone!  Welcome to another week of CAS(E) this Sketch.  We are super excited to share our awesome sketch with you but first, we have to say goodbye to one of our amazing designers.  Gayatri Murali has been a part of this team for a large chunk of the time we have been doing this.  She has been a major part of what has made this blog successful and her amazing contributions to the challenge behind the scenes have helped keep me sane during this whole process.  Her cards are amazing, her sketches are wonderful, and, in case you didn't know, the Thursday posts were put together by her.  We know her talent will take her far and we are so excited to see her take on new adventures.  We'll miss her tons but, lucky for us, she has left us with many of her sketches and I know she'll be around to play along from time to time.  Thanks for everything you've done for us, Gayatri!  You are amazing and we'll miss you.  Now for the sketch:  


Today's guest designer is Kimberly Wiener and we are so happy to have her!  Kimberly has been playing along with us for the longest time and I always love to see her card (or often time cards) each week.  It is SO nice to have her on the blog and I just LOVE what she did with this sketch.  Make sure you go check out her blog and tell her how awesome she did this week! 



Now for the rest of the team!





















Aren't they amazing!  Have fun with this challenge and let the CAS(E)-ing begin!  Check back Saturday for the winners from last week's challenge!

Sorry about the delay this morning!  We had a nice little storm cell pass through just long enough to wake everyone up at 5:57 am and  knock out power for a few hours.  Hopefully, that means the whole house will get a good nap today.  A mom can only hope, right?  ;)  I'm super excited to share the winners for Sketch #88 with you this morning and I'm sure you won't want to miss playing along with use for Sketch #89.  We hope you'll enjoy both.  Here are your winners this week:

CAS(E) this Sketch #89

It's sketch day again and we can't wait to share our new sketch with you!  It's totally awesome and I have to admit, this is probably my favorite line up of cards yet and that is saying a ton since we have some AMAZING designers!  This sketch is open to SO much interpretation and our designers just ran with it.  Are you ready to see?  


First up is this week's guest designer, Angela!  Her winning card blew us away!  If you don't remember it, go check it out in the winner's gallery.  LOVE IT!  You know what else I love...Angela's blog, From the Tool Shed.  She does amazing things with challenges and her creations are super duper fabulous!  Just take a look at her card this week.  AMAZING!  Thanks so much for being on the team this week, Angela!  We are loving having you on board.  ;)



Isn't that a wonderful nautical card?  Are you ready for the rest of the line up?
