CASology #86: The Root of the Matter

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s time for a brand new cue word over at CASology!  This week?  We’re digging deep with ROOTS!

I know this immediately makes one think of gardening, but I lack a green thumb, so decided to take this word off on a different tangent…

Stamps:  SU,

I had this vision of pigs rooting around and went looking for an image of one of those creatures.  This little fellow was perfect for what I had in mind!  And he even likes chocolate!  I added the strip of colorful washi tape at the last minute for a pop of color and to add a bit of a playful feel.

I hope you’ll take some time to visit the rest of the design team members’ blogs as well as this week’s guest designer’s blog!  They’ve created some beautiful inspiration for you!

One thing I should mention:  In order to give participants more time to play along, we are extending the deadline for entries to Mondays at NOON (Central Time). Due to this extension, we will now be announcing our winners and honorable mentions on Tuesdays at 7:00 a.m. (Central Time), one hour before a new challenge begins. Challenges will begin at the same time as usual, 8:00 a.m. (Central Time) on Tuesdays.
Have a terrific Tuesday!

    Super cute card!!! (Sorry I didn't understand what you wanted to try to say with this card. I have lack of American culture. Bad me! Off to do some goggling about pig and truffles.) Seriously this week's cue word made me to study a lot about roots related phrase. 😉 May
