Being Deployed and Freddie Misses You!

I have two cards today - again very different in design.  The first is a very special card for me.  A co-worker asked me to make a cards for her son.  He is being deployed in a few days to Korea.  I quickly accepted even though she needed it the next morning!  She had already purchased the stickers and the green cardstock.  So this is what developed:

Supplies -
Stickers - K&Company
Green Cardstock - Unknown
Navy Cardstock - Bazzill
Gold Mirror Paper - Anna Griffin
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug
I also made a card for my first CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. This sketch is challenge #50.

Meet Freddie!  He and I have spent so much time together getting his coloring just right, that I had to name him.  I'm not sure if I'll be able to give him away!! (Freddie will eventually make his way to Operation Write Home.)

 I've learned that CAS doesn't mean quick.  If you've followed my posts, you know I consider myself the Queen of Slow Card Making.  I maintained my crown with this card.  But I do like it. 

Supplies -
Freddie the Pug - Paper Smooches
Coloring - Copic Markers
Dies - Spellbinders
White Cardstock - Bazzill Smooth
Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye Hootenanny
Sentiment - Hero Arts
Black Ink - Momento Tuxedo Black
Other Supplies - CTMH Liquid Glass, SU Dimensionals, Glue Dots

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment if you can.


  1. Little Freddie is adorable and perfectly coloured! Your selection of the pattern paper surround is brilliant. The card that you created for your co-worker is really fitting for the young man off to Korea. She must have really liked how it turned out. Thanks for your service young man.

  2. How nice of you to make the card for your coworker's son ~ a great card. Love how you colored Freddie ~ a fantastic take on the sketch!

  3. Your "Freddie" card is adorable! A great take on the sketch, too!

  4. Both cards are very pretty, but the second is soooo cute. Thanks for playing along with us in the CAS(E) this sketch! challenge and hope to see you again.
