fetch the COMFY Chair!

Happy Tuesday!   I have a nice CAS card for you today.   I absolutely love this image!!! (Thank you Amy!)

Don't you just love this big comfy chair?  I can hardly say that without thinking of Monty Python & the Spanish Inquisition...oh no, not the comfy chair!!!!

Sorry if that makes no sense to you whatsoever.  My family walks around quoting MP frequently...no, it's just a flesh wound!  lol ok, I'll stop now!

This week's challenge @ Digital Tuesday is to use the sentiment,'Thinking of you'. You can create any craft you choose as long as there is a digital element to it!  Pop over to the challenge blog to see the gorgeous DT creations & read about the prize on offer this week!  Digital Tuesday Challenge blog!

I was visiting Stef the other day and noticed she had started using a box to list her cardmaking materials.  I liked the look of hers, so I gave it a go...not sure I'm liking mine.  Will have to give it some thought!  lol

Enjoy your day!

"My philosophy, like color television, is all there in black and white." lol.... That comfy chair looks amazingly tempting to this sleepy old lady! We pulled in here at 3:10 a.m. Ugh.... DH had 7 a.m. mtg. I'm very bleary eyed! Great card, Maria, and fun that you are a MP fan! Hugs...

Great CAS card. The embossing on the chair gives it a nice texture - a bit like chenile fabric. Thanks for joining us at Phindy's Place.

Julie M said...

Great card, Maria - loving that big squishy chair - you're so good at CAS, I can't do it at all!!!

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay this week.

Harriet Skelly said...

I love that comfy chair and that layout! Thanks for playing with Speedy's Friends!

Vicky Hayes said...

This is a brilliant card. I love the pop of that squishy chair against the neutral card stock and the way it's escaping from its frame! Monty Python makes perfect sense to me!

Audrey Pettit said...

What a fun card, Maria! I love the CAS design. The kraft background and the black framework are wonderful, and I love the paper piecing on that comfy chair.
Oh, and we love us some MP at our house, too. ;)

Colleen Dietrich said...

OH, and thanks for playing with Speedy's Friends!

Colleen Dietrich said...

You have me chuckling here, Maria, over your MP quotes. Although I did not watch the show, I have a friend who quotes MP enough that I feel like I have seen those episodes!
