CAS(E) this Sketch #253

Happy 2018!  Can you even believe that 2017 is over?  It is absolutely crazy how fast that year flew by.  I guess it helps when you have fun things to do like playing along with creative people on a fun challenge blog, right?  :)  Well, we hope you have enjoyed our sketches in 2017 and will continue to join us weekly for fun new inspiration this year.

Do you want to know another exciting thing about 2018?  We are welcoming a new design team member!  Please put your hands together for Brian! 

Brian King 
Design Team Member


Hello! I'm Brian King from Atlanta, Georgia. After three years of playing along with CAS(E) This Sketch, I am THRILLED to now be a Design Team Member. I am a corporate accountant by day and a stamper by night (and sometimes early mornings, lunch hours and weekends). I love everything about my "creating time" and love to share the results with you. I've been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator since 2013 and am still loving every minute of this fun ride. I am excited to share my ever-changing journey with you!

We are super excited to have him join the team as we've been big fans.  We hope you'll enjoy his awesome style as much as we do and welcome him to the team.  Woo hoo!  Here's to Brian's first official CTS sketch as a team member and it just so happens to be a Retro CTS Sketch.  You can check out the original challenge post here but for now here is the sketch:
