Keep Swimming!

Hello Everyone!

Let's try this a sixth time! You know what they say, 'sixth time's a charm'. UGH! For those of you who aren't aware I have tried numerous times to write this paragraph but Blogger isn't saving my work. So I put the paragraph in another program and saved it as a picture.  

Anyway, for today I will be playing along with Watercooler Wednesday, Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge, and yes, CASology. I will playfully plead my case later in this post. So, here is my card for today, enjoy! 

This a water die I got a couple of months ago. It comes with four dies which I layered to create the pool. I am going to bring my argument that indeed this is a CAS card. Why? Well, let's look at your guidelines. I will paste them here
  1. One main image- The main image is the pool with the girl. I think it could count as one image because the subject goes together.
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered- YES! Lots of open space with one simple sentiment.
  3. Limited layers & embellishments- Okay this is where it gets sticky. It does have layers but they are concentrated into one image, the pool does have a monochromatic color scheme and the outer layer is also the center of the pool thus eliminating a layer. 
  4. Quick & easy to recreate: 10-15 minutes to create. Easy peasy. 
Mind you I do this in good fun and humor. Please don't take offense but I think I have made my case. Or should I say CAS? 

Simple sentiment for a simple card. It makes for a fantastic encouragement card. 

The center of the pool and the edging are both a very dark blue. It is hard to see in photos but in real life I promise it is blue 😉. The jumping girl is a die from Hero Arts July 2019 kit. Remember 2019?

Challenges Entered:
I am using Water, Blue, Pool


When I was pregnant with my daughter I used always say this to her in my head. I always get a giggle when I see this stamp while my daughter, now 14, just rolls her eyes! heheee..

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy.

This card is very striking and beautiful! I think you've stated your "CAS" for clean and simple very well, and I'd say it qualifies...but I'm not the one who gets to decide, that's a different challenge (LOL!) Thanks for joining us this week at TTTC!
