In the midst of this season of greys, whites and more greys, I keep craving green. It wasn't until I put my makes from the weekend in a big pile did I notice that I had used quite a bit of green! Maybe it's because no matter how often I try out CAS cards, I always feel like a beginner.
As usual with CAS cards, my go-to spot are the challenge blogs with sketches. My first card today comes from the Freshly Made Sketch below.
I thought I would ink up my soon-to-be-released Just Sayin' stamps from RRD. I am already in love with this quirky set which will be available on the Rogue Redhead Designs website on January 25th.
This woman just cracks me up!

When I made my next card, I didn't even realize until halfway through trying out this great sketch from Skipping Stones that I had gone all green again!
