Thinking of You

A multipurpose masculine card for the new challenge at
CASology for the cue word of "flame."  Instead of going with 
the fire / vapor definition of "flame," I went with the 
action form of the word ~ to "shine brilliantly" (yes, I 
googled it).   I am sure the very witty and multitalented
Ms. Darnell would have a much more extensive and
humorous story to tell you ;).

Supplies ~
Stamps:  WPlus9 Guiding Light & Guiding Light Sentiments
Paper:  SU Marina Mist, Whisper White, Soft Suede
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip, PTI Fresh Snow, Black Sharpie (to go over the stamped sentiment) & Gold Top Marker
Dies:  PTI In the Meadow & Hello Sunshine (used the negative to sponge the beam)
Additional Supplies:  Taylored Expressions Cloud Impression Plate, Magenta cork

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. So clever - both in your use of flame and in using that cork as the sand! I love the bright beam guiding ships safely by! Thanks so much for playing along with CASology this week!

  2. haha, Darnell does have a way with words :) I have this set and the thought never crossed my mind to use it, GREAT idea! I love the beam of light. Thanks for playing along at CASology this week!

  3. Jean your though process and Google process came together brilliantly. I believe that for this you would get Ms. Darnell's seal of 'thumbs up'. Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at CASology!

  4. Fabulous take on the cue word! So clever to use the action form of it. The scene you created is lovely and I especially like the cork sand. Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  5. Okay, stop it. This is so briliant, Jean, no pun intended!! What a great tip on using that sun ray as a negative for the "flame!" And that cork? OMG! This has GOT to be among the winners for innovation, at least!!

    Now, lookee there, my name?! Aacchh, I feel like I'm not living up to my reputation. This da"r"n stamp organization has used up all my imagination! I have "nojo" as far as definitions for flame this week, other than a birthday candle and that's been done so fab already. Anyhoots, doll, thanks for the shoutout!! Mwah!

  6. Love your take on the cue word....very clever! Using the cork is a clever touch... Thanks so much for playinf along with CASology this week!
