Case Study Challenge 95: Another Card for Wendy

Hello Everyone,
For this week's Case Study challenge - I cased a case! In January I decided that my cards needed a destination - I was making too many that never seemed to have a home to go to. So, I made up my mind to send my BFF a card a week for a year; we live in the same city and we get together every week, but she is loving getting a little mid-week pick me up in the for m of a card. So, when I saw the case study challenge this week, I knew what Wendy's card would be. I actually cased the guest designer's case! Since I started this card club - I have added several more people as recipients and am so enjoying sending my designs out each week. Anyway, I love the way it turned out. My photo didn't quite capture how cool the cutout background looks - I just love my memory box dies! Anyway, thanks for looking!

Happy Stamping,

Cas-ual Friday Challenge 55: Style it with Bling

I love when Cas-ual Fridays Blog posts the new challenges. This week's challenge is to style it with bling - not much challenge in that for me - I have a hard time keeping the bling off my cards! Anyway, I just made a visit to my favourite local crafting store and stocked up on some new Memorybox dies... How can a girl resist when they keep coming out with fantastic new designs. So, I decided to test out this Christmas tree - I love it! I cut it out with SU's shimmer white paper and mounted it on Cherry Cobbler. I embossed the Cherry cobbler with SU's Snowburst EF. Then I added a Memorybox star cut from silver glitter paper. Finally on went the last touch of bling - clear rhinestones. My picture doesn't quite catch the real-life sparkle, but I think you get the picture! Thanks for popping in.

Happy Stamping and crafting,
