Runway Inspired Challenge #43 + CASology #60: Apple

With the kids back in school you would think I have a lot of time on my hands, but that just isn't the way it has been over the last couple of weeks. I am squeezing in little moments here and there and finally have two cards to share.

The first is for the Runway Inspired Challenge #43 where this cool ensemble provided the inspiration.

The black & white background, plus bold color and graphic lines were too much for me to pass without trying to come up with something.

I love the way this card came together. It started with the ribbon - I knew I had this scalloped ribbon in my stash and thought it would be perfect to mimic the white shirt. Pure white might have been a better match, but this ribbon was already tea-stained along the edges. As I was poking through my ribbon basket, I also spied the black gingham ribbon.

The MFT happy die and birthday stamped sentiment work to reinforce the clean lines of the inspiration image.

This second card is just going to make the CASolgy Challenge #60 deadline where the cue card is "apple".

As much as I believe in eating an apple a day, the first thing that comes to mind around our house when you say "apple" is iMac or MacBook or our beloved iPhones, so I created this quick CAS card.

I paired a Paper Smooches sentiment with a Simon Says Stamp Talk Bubble and the MFT camera die to make my phone. The Hawaiian Shores cardstock is pretty close to the color of my Otterbox case.

Hope you are having a great weekend - we spent a fun afternoon at the local Greek Festival and are tempted to go back tomorrow for more food, music & dancing.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Jacquie, you are so RIGHT! I also thought of all our beloved Apple products (iPods, iPads, iPhones, iMac)...would be good to own that stock right now! I love your colorful yet CAS design, so very clever and fun! Thanks for joining ust at CASology this week!

  2. Both these cards rock, Jackie! I love ribbons on the first card and the big, bold sentiment. The second card is a brilliant take on the cue word! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
