Getting Older with CASology


It’s time for a new cue word challenge over at CASology!  This week we’re exploring the word OLD.  I immediately thought of birthdays.  We’re all getting older by the day!  Of course, once we hit 29, we stop counting the years.

Stamps:  Mama Elephant

I used a stitched panel die for the main panel and added a bold sentiment and a trio of popped up balloons.  There is a touch of sparkle on the little piece of reflection on each of the balloons, but it was tricky to capture it with the camera.  You’ll just have to take my word for it this time, I’m afraid!

Be sure and stop by the blogs of the rest of the design team and this week’s guest designer!  They’ve come up with some fabulous inspiration!

Then, don’t forget to link up your own OLD creation on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CST) for your chance to win a free digital stamp set from our sponsor, Melon Door Lighthouse!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    Well, anyone who thinks 29 is old—too young for me! This is so cute and perfect for anyone any age.
