CAS(E) This Sketch 242

Thursday, October 5, 2017

A quick look at the calendar tells me that Halloween is not that far away so I thought it was time for me to break out my all-time favorite stamp set for the occasion.  Lucky for me the latest CAS(E) This Sketch designed by Leigh was very accomodating for my Herman Munster-style image.

The Halloween colors at House of Cards put me in the mood and good ol' Herman and his love of bats set the stage for this one.  I just love this guy!

By the way, I fussy cut this guy out.  This stamp set is so old the only dies that co-existed with him were simple shapes we called Nestabilities!  Oh how times have changed!

My CAS(E) This Sketch teamies have created some fabulous cards for you to see with this sketch so be sure to check them out.  I hope you can join us in the gallery!  Thanks for stopping by!

There are times, Jen, when I like to sit with a tray full of images to fussy cut! You've colored and clipped Herman wonderfully! What a great image. Love the bit of plaid, too. Fantastic take on Leigh's sketch. Bev

Too much fun Jen! I like the thin black circle among the layers. It really lets "Herman" pop! And I now have the monsters theme song playing in my head LOL!!

This set is one of my favorites, too - and I don't even celebrate Halloween but had to have it and the matching sentiment set. Your card looks fabulous - super cool texture in the background too!
