Christmas time in the city...

Hello, hello!

Well it has gotten pretty darn cold around here but so far we have managed to avoid any snowfall. Everyone I talk to says that we are supposed to be getting a lot of snow this year but I'm trying to remain optimistic. In the meantime there isn't much else for me to do but hunker down in the crafty room with my ongoing Operation Organization, LOL! I'm going to tackle those 6x6 paper pads today if it kills me!  ;)

So my card today came about because I didn't stamp my image straight at all. I knew I needed to leave Fifi Goes Shopping on the cardstock because there was no way I was fussy cutting them out but it was so crooked I was either going to have to cut it down to straighten it out or stamp it again. But then I remembered a very CAS card I had seen on Pinterest recently that had a large panel tilted on the front of it. So I thought why not try that wonky design to save my image and let me tell you, it turned out so fun looking! Doesn't it kinda add to the whole cool, city vibe that Fifi and her friend have going on? This is just more proof that Bob Ross was right... there are no mistakes, just happy accidents. :)

I shall leave it at that and bid you adieu until tomorrow!

Oh Amy, what a great save! I think it looks absolutely adorable like this. If you hadn't even mentioned the whole stamps crocked thing I would have thought you did this on purpose. So CUTE!!! Will you tell me something? I thought a CASE card is when you see a design that someone made and you copy it. Like when I was on the TGF DT. However I have had people tell me that some of my cards were CAS. Is that the same thing, or does CAS stand for something else? Just wondering. lol... Cold with no snow here either, Lisa :O)
