CAS(e) This Sketch #372

I have had very little crafting mojo lately and I'm conveniently blaming it all on Corona Brain Fog.  (CBF is a real thing, my friends.)  My brain may not have been feeling creative but apparently there was nothing wrong with my typing fingers as I did manage to place several online crafty orders this week.  *blush*  Just doing my part boost the economy!

Seriously though, I forced myself in the craft room yesterday, gave myself a pep talk and then pulled up the latest sketch over at the CAS(e) This Sketch challenge blog.  I've found that often times sketches are the best way to pull myself out of a crafty funk. 

In all honesty, I wasn't feeling it with this sketch but as luck would have it, I came across the perfect stamp from an order I received this week.  It made the sketch super easy.  In fact, perhaps too easy.  It's a stretch but you keep an open mind, the sketch is totally there.  

As per the sketch I have a horizontally centered banner sentiment with images flowing above and below it.  Can you see it?  :-)  The part that makes it really "too easy" is that this lovely background is all one stamp.  All I did was color it in and add in the sentiment.  

If interested, I visited The Ton's website in search of this stamp, which I purchased along
with several items from her awesome sale catagory, the stamp above being one of them.
Her shipping was lightning fast and I received my products within just a few days of ordering.  

It felt soooo good to get back into the swing of things again that I actually made two identical cards.  (Yay me!)  Hopefully you see more of me this week, especially since I have lots of new things headed my way.  

Stay safe and healthy my friends!  

Thank you for visiting my little crevice of the crafty blogosphere.  Your time, comments and friendship are much appreciated.  

Happy Crafting!
