CASology 72 - Shop


This week's CASology Cue Card is Shop.



While I am pretty good at shopping, I struggled to think of a way to portray it on a CAS card. And then all of a sudden, I remembered shop class from Grade 7 and 8. Ah, Mr. Murdy. You have to be pretty darn brave to give 12 and 13 year old kids access to band saws and welding torches!

I used a single (old) Stampin' Up stamp in Versafine Onyx on kraft cardstock, mounted onto a black card base. Very simple. Very masculine.

Now it's your turn - the DT had a blast with this Cue Card - go check it out!

I thought so shop class too although we didn't have that at my prim Britih all girls school! LOL! I made up for in it university though as my theatre design degree meant a lot of hours in the scene shop building sets, making costumes, focusing lights, etc...

Once I saw your card I had to go another way though. It's so perfectly crisp and clean and I love the sentiment!

I had the HUGEST crush on my sixth grade shop teacher! I even took summer school with my friend to see him again :)! I love this card!

Great card but I can see this (minus the thank you part) on a T shirt. I love power tools but alas girls were not allowed in shop class when I was in school. I learned them all on my own.

Mr. Murdy's shop class...gosh, I love how your brain works! This card is right up there with your most clever ideas ever! Is that sentiment seriously part of the stamp set?

Sheila H said...

Very clever and cute, too!

I always wished I could take shop class in high school but no such luck! So I played with the tools in our basement instead! Very clever, creative take on this week's cue...as usual! Love it!
