CTS is a challenge blog to inspire you to create a clean and simple card based on a fun sketch.
Here is my inspiration for this week’s challenge and brand new sketch.

It is that time for our friend’s twin boys to have their birthday.
I always make them an airplane card and this year is no exception.

Lots of stamping this week again.

I’m sad to say this will be my last post with the CTS gang.  My plate is a little full and I’ve had to make some hard decisions to lighten up on some of my blogging commitments.  It is really difficult to say goodbye to this design team.  I’ve put my heart into the start up and the creation of cards plus sketches.  But life has other plans for me right now.
I will still be around cheering everyone on and playing from the other side.

Hugs to all my amazing team members, I will miss working with all of you.

Make sure you hop over to the CTS blog for challenge rules and a blog full of inspiration.
The design team girls are so talented and have the most fabulous cards to share.

    Super cute card Lisa! I’m sad to hear that this is your last post on the CTS blog, but as you say, life sometimes has other plans and you have to do what you have to do. We will still see your smiling face and read your blog posts so no worries! Have a great day!

    You’ll be missed Lisa!!! Thanks so much for all of your contributions to CTS. It’s become a really fun card challenge that will continue, even though we’ve had to make that very difficult decision to move on because of life changes.

    (((hugs))) I’m sure it was a hard decision to make – one of my teams is ending & it’s a bittersweet thing, isn’t it? I’m not going to miss you one bit though because I’ll be stalking you *ahem* following you right here 🙂 I love that you have a tradition of giving them the same ‘theme’ of card every year – and this card is too fun!
