Taking CASology for a Spin


It’s time for a brand new cue word over at CASology!  Time to get those creative wheels spinning and see where this cue takes you!

For me, there seemed to be endless options, but I settled on an old phone!  Remember those old rotary dial ones?!  I used to love spinning the dial as a little girl.  These days, you’re lucky to see one anywhere unless you’re intentionally searching!

Stamps:  Unity (Neopolitan Bisque Soup)

I stamped the phone first and then stamped it a second time in black so I could fussy cut the dial.  The dial was attached to the phone with a foam dot and embellished with a single clear gemstone.  I stamped the speech bubble and sentiment in black and then fussy cut & attached it to the card base with foam dots.

Be sure and go say a quick hello to the design team members & this week’s guest designer!  They work so hard each week to create inspiration!

Then, don’t forget to link up your own creation on the challenge blog by Monday at NOON (CST) for your chance to win a prize from Cindy B Designs, our sponsor this week!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

    What a great idea for the cue word Melissa and super cute too! I remember being a little girl playing with the phone and asking my mom how do you dial the dash!!

    Very fun interpretation of the cue word. I remember those sorts of phones so well. Only, I never had a polka dotted one.

    What a great card and an awesome interpretation of the cue word! I am old enough to remember having a rotary dial phone. LOL

    Definitely remember these!! We used to have one when I was a girl – avocado green, I think!! Loved the weight in the handset, and turning the brass dial and waiting for it to slowly chug back before dialing the next number. Those were the days…!

    Oh Melissa!!! You really went way back!! My grandmother still has this phone. She doesn't use it but she has it!! LOL! I love your card.

    Ditto to what Hazel said! I loved the sound that spinning made! I wish mine had had a big ol’ gem in the middle of it… 🙂
