CASology Week 230: COLD

Welcome to Week 230 at CASology!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday break and are ready to dive into the New Year with both feet! We have a great, versatile CUE word to get the creative juices flowing. Are you snowed in right now and wanting to recreate the winter wonderland on a card front? Do you know someone fighting a cold in need of a Get Well card? The winter break is also known as the wisdom teeth extraction break around here. Both of my kids have had their wisdom teeth removed in the last couple of years and one has a friend facing oral surgery this week, so I made a little card for her highlighting one of the foods that helps get you through the first couple of days.

Images from Lawn Fawn's Treat Yourself stamp set were masked and layered first and then the PTI Sketched Shapes banner added in aqua. A few Copic markers were used to color the strawberry ice cream and carton.

I'm looking forward to seeing which direction COLD takes you. For more ideas, check out the Design Team cards and say a special hello to new Design Team members, Janet Ribet and Rachel Bergfeld!

We are looking forward to seeing how COLD inspires you -  just remember to keep it Clean & Simple! You have until Monday at noon (CMT) to link your card to the CASology blog. 

Thanks for stopping by,




  1. Brilliant! Nothing like some ice cream to cure almost any ill. :)

  2. This is such a sweet card. Pun totally intended. I hope your kids have an easy time of it. I am dreading when my youngest has hers done this spring.

  3. Very sweet of you, Jacquie ... awful thing to go through!! Sure to make them smile...

  4. Well, this hit very close to home as my daughter just had her wisdom teeth out on 12/29! And last Christmas vacation my son had his out! My next daughter made me promise we would not schedule hers over Christmas, she'd rather over summer vacation. In any case, a get well card featuring ice cream is perfect for the occasion! Very clever, indeed!

  5. Nothing like personal experience to inspire a card,Jacquie, and this is a cute one. I love the stamped banner to put the sentiment on.

  6. Sweet ... and I could do with some of that right now. Thanks for welcoming me to the CASology DT.

  7. Happy New Year Jacquie! Love how you used the stamped banner to ground your design. Oral surgery sounds awful - this card is sure to put a smile on their face.

  8. I did not even think of ice cream, now that is just perfect Jacquie. I love that stamped strip!

  9. Hey Jacquie!! Who doesn't want good ice cream to feel better. Nicely done. Thank you so much for playing with us this week at CASology.


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
