Hello-A sketch challenge

Hello my crafty friends, hope your week is going well. Mine is going ok. Same ole, same ole. As I was doing come commenting, a sweet and very talented lady, Michele encouraged me to come play along with the challenge she designed for. That challenge is called CAS(E) This Sketch.  I wasn't sure if I would or not, but told her that I might. And of course she said it would make her smile if I did. So how could I not? Not really in a mood for creating, but there was a sketch and I thought I would give it a try. The first try I didn't like. So tried again and here is what I came up with. I will keep the other one for next April's:
April Fool Day, My big fat boo boo that Darnell hosted for the first time this year. 

She is really a hoot and I love to read her posts. You should go check her out as she will definitely make you chuckle. Lots of wild things go on over there as she has Hammy and his family helping her out. Don't know Hammy?? Well then you are in for a treat, go on over and meet Hammy and his family! 

So I'm linking my card today up with CAS(E) This Sketch. Not very creative (but it is CAS), I always have a hard time thinking out of the box. Michele does a fabulous job of thinking out of the box as does the other design team members. Go check them out by clicking on the pink CASE This Sketch up above. 

And here is the sketch!

As always thank you for stopping by for a spell today. I always enjoys your visits and your comments always make me smile. Crafty hugs, Brenda

What a clever take on the sketch Brenda . . . you do yourself down . . . you make fabulous cards and, I for one, couldn't think of a thing when I saw that sketch, so you're better than me at 'thinking outside the box' . . . I can see a winner here my friend! Remember, the only failure is not failure itself, but in not trying!! Hazel xx

This is fabulous, Brenda. I love the little paper airplane. It's so cute! (I really do love paper airplanes) The grandsons are always folding them. I even search for new ways to fold them. I still can't fly them worth a flip. But this card just makes me smile. Genius!

Oh this is one clever card, Brenda, I love it!
... really love the way you've done it..
I love how you think outside the square and come up with a twist on the card sketch with a paper plane!!
Really brilliant work and touches with the printed stamp used on the paper plane.
Thanks so much for sharing.

You've rocked this sketch, Brenda! Love that paper airplane and the script on it! Brilliant!

Marlena M. said...

This is such a great design Brenda! Love what you did with this sketch~

What a lovely CAS design Brenda and a great take on the sketch. Love the curly dotted line on the sentiment - that is just how paper airplanes fly isn't it? I'm intrigued now about the one that didn't make the cut - lol!

Anita in France said...

Brilliant, Brenda ... and most definitely creative! What a cool CAS design ... such fab detailing on each element ... yep, brilliant! So pleased to see you creating ... it's not just Michele that's smiling! Hugs, Anita :)

Karen Petitt said...

Brenda that's gorgeous! You don't realise that you have talent huni, now don't shush me, you have a natural way of bringing the elements together and keeping it classy and I love your card. In fact it will be pinned to my CAS board as I always need a bit of inspiration. As for Darnell she makes this blogging stuff so much fun and I just love Hammy and his family too Karen xx

I'm glad you made a card, it's a great take on the sketch Brenda, you do make such inspiring cards my friend. I agree that Darnell's posts always bring a smile or a laugh.

Love and hugs

It's fun, creative, and I love it!!! Love the clouds up there just floating by - right along with the paper airplane.

MaryH said...

This is _so_ cool! I would have been looking all over for an airplane stamp, and here you go - making your own paper plane with a vintage script paper. What an interesting way to say hello! You clever crafter, you. This is just darling, and you even added in the fluffy clouds. A marvelous take on this sketch! Proud of you! TFS & Hugs

Good for Michelle for encouraging you to play at CAS(E) this Sketch! Good for YOU for listening, because your card is a gem! Your wee paper plane, spelling out a swirly hello in the blue sky, is marvelous! Perfect for the sketch! Guess you know what this means: we'll be expecting to see you playing over there more often. Everyone there is so sweet and welcoming!
Hugs to you, darling friend!
