CASology #30: Fairytale

Hello, friends!  It's Tuesday, which means a new CASology challenge...this week's cue is a fun one!

 

My mind went all over the place with this cue...that's why I eventually made TWO cards.  (Such indecision!)

I first thought princesses, which led me eventually to my first card:


Materials Used:
Stamps:  Stampin' Up "Unfrogettable," Hero Arts "Sending Smiles"
Inks: black dye ink, Copic markers, Uni-ball Signa white pen
Other:  Darice "Scrolls" embossing folder, corner rounder 
 


I also thought of all the classic fairy tales my kids used to beg me to read every night before bed...which led to this next card (hopefully you get the reference!):

 
Material Used:
Stamps:  A Muse "Animal Wishes,"  Hero Arts "Home with Flourish,"
Papertrey Ink "Wreath for All Seasons"
Inks:  black dye ink, Hero Arts Wet Cement mid-tone ink, green Copic marker
Papers: My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Blush 6x6 paper pad


(SIDE NOTE:  One of our all-time favorite parodies on a classic fairy tale is THIS book...a great gift for little kids with a good sense of humor!)

What does the cue word mean to you?  I hope you'll play along so we can find out!  Be sure to link up your entries by Sunday 4:00 (CST) and check out the inspiring cards by our design team, too!
