CASology #72: SHOP

Hello, friends!  It's Tuesday, which brings another cue for the week at CASology.  I think you're going to like this one!

This week we are sponsored by one of my favorite stamp companies, Sweet Stamp Shop!  You can check out their blog HERE and their shop HERE.  They have the cutest line of stamps as well as some very fun flair...check it out!

So, I saw this cue and first thought of all the Christmas shopping I need to do!  Here in the U.S. we are preparing to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, and the next day is referred to as "Black Friday." It used to be that the Christmas shopping season got underway the day after Thanksgiving, however I have been seeing Christmas commercials and decorations in stores since Halloween!  (Ugh.  You have no idea how much that disgusts me!  Too, too commercial...that's not what it's about, people!  But, I digress!)     

After the thought of Christmas shopping, I thought of the many family birthdays we celebrate in the month of December.  (I have lots of birthday present shopping to do!)  This card is going to my SIL who celebrates a birthday right before Christmas (note it is not Christmas colors...no combo card for her!).  I colored the gifts but paper-pieced the dress, and then added ultra fine glitter to some of the gifts for fun!  I ran a warm gray Copic marker down the right side of the entire image to give the effect of dimension (looks like a shadow) and adds just the right finishing touch.  Nothing is popped up on this card!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Hero Arts "For You Gifts," sentiment by Endless Creations
Inks: black dye ink, Copic markers
Other: MME Lime Twist "Life of the Party" patterned paper, Cuttlebug "Tiffany" embossing folder, ultra fine glitter

So, what does the cue word mean to you this week?  I can't wait to see!  Be sure to link up your card by 4:00 p.m. Sunday.  Check out the inspiring cards by our amazingly talented Guest Designer and our super creative Design Team, too!  (You'll be amazed at the different directions in which we took this cue!)
