CAS(e) This Sketch

Here in the UK the weather continues to be diabolical, wet and unseasonably cold.  I haven't felt much like going out this week and have mostly stayed at home on my days off and had a bit of a sort out and tidy up.

I've a male friend who's moving house next month so today I made him a card which follows loosely the sketch here.  




Here's what I did.

 


I used a Memory Box die and printed the sentiment on the computer. Then all I did was devise a two-tone mat in the same pale blue and rust colour card and job done. It was so quick and simple that I feel somewhat of a fraud linking it but I don't suppose anyone will mind, so I'm also linking to 52 Card Pick Up and Addicted To Stamps and More 

Have a great weekend all.

    It's awful here. It was so windy this morning I had to admit defeat and turn back from the Sally Army, the wind was impossible to walk in.
    Have a fab weekend. xxxx

    I'm frankly sick of this weather, it's sooooo flipping cold.
