CASology #105: RUN

Hello, friends!  What a fun week of PETS we had last week!  I was so impressed by the awesome CAS cards in the pool...it was tough to pick a winner, let me tell ya!

Now it's time for our new cue at CASology!

This week we are sponsored by Add a Little Dazzle...be sure to check out the CASology blog for all the details!  Mónica, the founder and owner of Add a Little Dazzle, was kind enough to send the Design Team members some metallic sheets to play with for the challenge, so I was really inspired to try something different and fun this week!

This is one of those cue words that can be 
interpreted in a variety of ways.  I went with the literal meaning, mainly because I was a runner in my younger days, my husband was and still is a runner, and now my two sons enjoy running cross country and track (amidst other sports).  My husband and I met in high school through cross country/track and so I have fond memories linked with running.  My three brothers also ran cross country and track all through high school and still run when they can.  Running is great because it can be a life-long sport, assuming injuries do not interfere (it is tough on the knees).

So, my card is inspired by the idea of the finish line at the end of a race.  I glued the purple metallic paper to white card stock before I die cut the banners so that they would be sturdier for gluing (although it is not necessary).

Stamping Supplies:
Purple metallic paper by Add a Little Dazzle
Stamps by WPlus9 (Label Layers 4)
Banner dies by MFT/Dienamics 
Stitched Rectangle dies by Lil' Inkers
Nicole's eggplant die ink, Hero Arts Soft Lilac Shadow ink
Paper piercing tool

Now it's your turn to RUN and make a card for this week's challenge!  :)   Be sure to link up your card by noon on Monday (Central time). Be sure to check out the clever interpretations of the cue by our Design Team and Guest Designers this week, too!

Need more inspiration?  Here's a sweet little song by Ben Kweller called "Run."  This catchy little song reminds me of high school when my husband and I first started dating (especially since we both liked to run).  It makes me happy...such a cute song!  (To listen click here.)

Thanks for stopping by,
