CASology 160 - Number


This week's CASology Cue Card is Number!


I don't know about you, but I'm getting to an age where the numbers are a little too big for my liking! Getting older is definitely better than the alternative, though, isn't it?!

I used MFT's Piece of Cake set to make this card; it has so many fantastic 'getting older' sentiments.  I love the way the candles are 'counting' the birthdays. I created a bit of interest by framing my image with the two parts of my sentiment.

Now it's your turn - what's your number? Be sure to check out the rest of the DT for more inspiration:

Brilliant design Ardyth! Love the way you interpreted the cue! I hope it will be done this week, definitely by October 17th. The renovations on the room--probably not

Fantastic, Ardyth! When the only way to fit candles on the cake is to start sticking them out the sides, I figure it's time to keep quiet about my age. ;)
Love the way you used the candles on your card!!! :)

Dear Ardyth,
I came over from the CASology Blog, since I saw your great card there and wanted to let you know, that I found it such a cute idea with the "candle counting". So brilliant!

Love the candle idea to represent the age, clever card and I can totally agree with the 'numbers getting a little too big' these days x
Thank you so much for choosing my card as an Honorable Mention for the Aquatic Theme last week, I am thrilled!

Oh, this is too fun!! Love your take on the cue card!

I just received this stamp set yesterday because of a cute card you made using the sentiments and a dinosaur. This layout is equally cute. Thanks.

Geri said...

Yep...I'll take the bigger numbers any day...much better than the ashes to ashes thing for sure!

Great idea to frame a small-ish image with sentiment banners. It definitely 'increases' the focal point of this cute card!

Clever and fun, Ardyth ... fab pop of colour in between that brilliant sentiment! Just wait till we all get to three figures!! Hugs & bisous, Anita :)

I do like how some of the CASology DT have snuck a little snark into their interpretations of this week's cue card! Your design is bright and fun.

Joyce said...

Fantastic card, and I like how you split the sentiment to frame your image. I need to remember this design tip.

A really fun card ! x

What a fabulously clean card Ardyth! I LOVE the candles as slash marks to indicate the number 5.

Petra Swart said...

I'm with you on those numbers getting a little too big, now, Ardyth!!! But we're still VERY young at heart, hey, and that's what counts!!!
Your card is so fun and perfectly done!!! Love those sweet 'counting' candles and how you've done the sentiment!!!
Have a lovely day!!!

Bobby said...

Wait til you get to my age, then you can talk about not counting. ;) Love the split sentiment.

Lisa said...

What a fun image, cute card Ardyth!!

Pam said...

Fabulous card! Great sentiment and love those colorful candles.

Chriss Blagrave said...

Oh, so cute and clever! Love this, Ardyth!

Kim Heggins said...

Fabulous card Ardyth!

Judy1223 said...

Uh, yeah...this style card would need 9 sets of those candles...you'd run out of room! I totally agree with you, I'm happy to take every birthday I get, it's definitely better than the alternative! I love the sentiment popped up...adds dimension while keeping things clean and simple! Love this!

This is so clever, and an idea I am going to have to CASE!! You never run out of clever ideas, do you??

Valentyna Komisarenko said...

Fabulous, Ardyth! Love your CAS design!

Hey Ardyth!! Yes, who is counting,lol!!! Only small kids count. They can't wait to grow up. Then when they are grown they wish they weren't counting, LOL. The cycle starts again!! Great card!

Love how you popped up the sentiment on this one!
