Mum’s the Word

No, this week’s CASology cue word is not a secret!

I just couldn’t resist…

I don’t typically use the word “mum” when referring to my own mother.  Even though I did live in New Zealand for a couple years growing up, I didn’t seem to bring any English expressions back with me.  The accent, yes, but only for a short while and then my American roots took over again.

Stamps:  CTMH (Bohemian Alphabet)

I used an alphabet stamp set from CTMH to create this simple card.  The letters were stamped, cut out and then popped up with foam dots for dimension.  I created the little gemstone flower using gemstone hearts and a tiny circle gemstone.

I’m hoping you’ll take a look at the blogs of the design team and our guest designer so you can see where their inspiration came from!  It always amazes me how many different creative ideas show up on the CASology blog each week!


Be sure and link up your own WORD creation by this Sunday at 4:00 p.m. (CDT)!

Have yourself a terrific Tuesday!
