My friend Brian King designed the sketch for Cas(e) this Sketch this week so I had to play along.  After I finished my Halloween card - with this dapper little duck - I visited the Design Team blogs.  

That Michele designed the sweetest card from snippets and kind of dared me to do the same! I love a good challenge so I dumped out my two snippet bowls - one has sentiments and the other images. I also have a small basket of rejected backgrounds. 

A total mishmash of stuff for a bicycle with no wheels, flowers with no stems, sea creatures with no ocean....I am sure Michele's snippets are much better!

But I wasn't going to give up! First I picked a sentiment strip and looked for anything that would work with the word sweet!  Ahhh strawberries!  I added a tropical green leaf and I was good!  I found a blue cut out circle that I clipped to make a bowl......use your imagination here folks I was desperate!  I trimmed a banner, found a plaid scrap and I was good to go! The soft stenciled layer was in my background basket - luckily my image covers the "bald spot"!  So here's my snippet card using the CTS sketch!

I have to admit it was fun trying to make it all work!

Such cute cards, love them both! The duck is so sweet and I love the background with the "bald" spot. ;)

TWO CARDS?! I love it, Linda! Both are so unique and so fun. I ADORE the bright colors you used on the Halloween card - not an ounce of spooky in it at all. ♥

Oh man I wish I could give you a high-five right now!!! You GO girl... and look at those snippets!!!! I might be using the wrong term? Mine might better be called a 'scrap bin' compared to yours!!!
Now we've started something, don't you agree that everyone should take a little look at their leftovers with new eyes?
Absolutely darling, my friend... that berry bowl is genius! Thanks so much for playing cards with us at CTS!!

Well... WOW. Just WOW! I've never seen snippets come together in such a perfect fashion. My snippets hang around un-organized on my desk for a few weeks until I get tired of looking at them and then I throw them away! Who knew that one day they could make an entire card? YOU did, that's who! My snippets may see a new life thanks to you - who knows!
