CASology Week 158: Precious

Hello Everyone!

It’s CASology time again, with a priceless cue for you:

What springs to your mind?  I can’t list the number of things that are precious to me – there are far too many, and in truth, are mostly not actual ‘things’. Ironically, I was channelling this week’s very apt sponsor,  Precious Remembrance Shop , when I made this card:

Memories are precious to me – of times, people, places, feelings – some are sketchier than others, and some I would rather forget, but all get woven into the rich tapestry of our lives. It’s unfortunate that I am not a scrap-booker because it is a hobby that certainly comes into its own when capturing memories in a very special and meaningful way.

Anyway, I kept my card ultra-CAS this week (what’s new, you might ask ;-)?) and in keeping with my memory – sketchy!

I decided to pop my sentiment into the filmstrip, where the pictures might be.

I used a rotary stamp to create my sentiment, hence the slightly ‘offline’ feel, and added a couple of light smudges either side of the filmstrip to suit the grungy style. I have been careful to limit the amount of ‘smudge’ so that I can preserve as much white space as possible.

I am so looking forward to see your precious creations this week!

I just wanted to share one last precious thing with you:  I was surprised and blown away to receive this amazing card in the mail from my gorgeous teamie, Kimberly! I absolutely adored this card, and the fact that Kimberly went to the trouble of sending it to me across the miles was so thoughtful and generous. The card and thought are extremely precious to me, Kimberly. Thank you!!

Have a great week, and I will see you in the gallery!

  1. Perfect, Hazel! Love the film strip as a frame for the sentiment! Memories are precious, aren’t they. Wish I could remember more than I do!

  2. What a fabulous idea for your card!! Memories are ultra precious and I know mine a very sketchy with my terrible memory, so to portray this on a card is fantastic!

  3. Hazel, I couldn’t agree with you more…memories, sketchy as they might be, are SO precious! I adore this card…love the filmstrip and the sentiment inside. I also think it is so lovely that Kimberly sent you the card that you loved so much…what a sweet teamie!

  4. This is brilliant, Hazel! This is my favourite DT card this week – totally unique and totally perfect. 🙂
