I like to be early for all my projects but lately, I have been getting to them right before they are due. The upside of that is I get to check the SCS challenges before I work on them! This week's CAS challenge is something that makes you think of France.
When I think of France I think of all the artists that have gone to Paris to sketch and paint.
I adore this sketch pad stamp from Impression Obsession. It is a blank page so we can add any image we like. We could even doodle our own image! I chose to add the butterfly and then I stamped the notebook once again and added the sentiment. Then I fussy cut it and tore it down the side. Lastly, I adhered the top page and added a shadow for the notebook.
I titled my card "Always a Good Idea" for the line that was used in the 1995 version of Sabrina. She says, "Paris is always a good idea". I think it's always a good idea to pull out your sketchbook and sketch!

LOVE this, CAS and just touches me this a.m. super fun to get a smile first thing as I sign on today. THANKS for inspiration, I don't have this stamp, but think I could make something similar and that encourages me like crazy! I have been down on mojo, think it's the heat! Yikes!! Have a great day

Great Idea - it makes me think of all the starving artists lined up daily around Sacre Coeur in Montmartre - I was fascinated by all the different styles of art work we saw there. Perhaps one of these days we'll see your doodled artwork in this sketchbook but for now the butterfly works well on this CAS card.
