CASology #221: CURE

Hello, friends!  Tuesday has arrived, and so has our next cue card at CASology!

On the heels of last week's cue card, COFFEE, I couldn't help but think of a nice cup as a cure.  A cure for the morning blues?  A cure for mid-day fatigue?  Works for me!

I used a fun digital image and sentiment called "Birdbrain Needs Coffee" by From the Heart digital stamps.  I know I need a little pick me up (in the form of coffee) every morning when I get up and every mid-afternoon so I can make it through the second half of my day!

I printed my image and sentiment directly onto white card stock, and decided it needed a little pop of color.  So, I took a strip of glitter tape and ran it down the edge of the card.  What an easy way to add a little interest to an otherwise one-layer card!

As we end the month of October (and breast cancer awareness month), I look forward to seeing your take on the cue.  Be sure to link up your CURE card by noon on Monday (Central time).  Our design team and guest designer have some very inspiring cards, too, so be sure to visit them!

  1. LOL! Thought I was looking in the mirror! That expression is a permanent fixture on my face! In truth though, it's sometimes more about the kids than the coffee! Love that strip of glitter bling too! You always make me laugh, Judy - the perfect medicine!

  2. Adorable. Love the expression on that birdie's face. And, the strip along the left side--perfect finishing touch.

  3. Oh Judy! This is exactly perfect!!! What a great image; that bird is so me in the morning! Love him all colored yellow, with the beans at his feet. This is a perfect take on the cue card. LOVE this!!! Hopefully, I'll be all caught up with commenting and such, then can really get back in the swing of things around here. It's good to be back, especially in time to see this card!! Bev

  4. I love your take on the cue word!! The sleepy eyes on this little dud crack me up!! Very cute card Judy!!

  5. I so love those birds, and I love the way you used this one for the cue. Fantastic card.

  6. Oh my..yes, yes I do need a little pick-me-up, right about now (and several times throughout the day)! So. much. fun! Smiling outloud in seeing this!

  7. I love your cute and funny card Judy ! What a funny face ! Hopefully I don't see mine every afternoon, just before my cup of tea ! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Brilliant! Coffee is definitely the cure for so many things. :D In fact I'm already looking forward to tomorrow's caramel latte... and it's currently 11pm! Love that droopy eyed bird and the glitter strip rocks - must remember that...


Thanks for taking the time to comment...I do appreciate it!
