CASE Study #180, Merry Monday #97 and SSS


Hello again...hope you are having a fabulous weekend, my day has been nice a quiet, have had the house to myself most of the day so other than a little laundry and a pot of marinara sauce on, I have been crafty most of the day. I have 2 more cards to share today, my first one is for the current challenge at CASE Study, it has been forever since I have played along and since it is Danielle Flanders last challenge I wanted to play along.  I tried to channel her card and Cathy's from Empty Nest Crafter to make mine and pulled out a few NBUS items too.  I received my Lawn Fawn order today and they included a few pieces of beautiful patterned paper and I had to use on this card.



My second card is for this week's Merry Monday challenge, using Aqua, Silver and White. A festive color combination in my opinion! Both cards are using pearls so I will be entering both in the current challenge at SSS.  Thank you so much for stopping by...enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  3. Well, you had a fabulous day. Love both of these cards, especially that first one. I loved Cathy's take this morning, and now yours--I think I will case both of you tomorrow and keep the chain going. I love how the die cut word looks in silver paper. Hmmm....perhaps a trip to Michael's is in order.

  14. Two awesome cards. One spring and one wintery, just like the weather here in Ohio. Fifty degrees yesterday, snow today. Go figure.

  15. What time is dinner? lol. So nice that you have the house to yourself and time to spend in your craft room! Two more beauties have been born from your incredible imagination! Just don't ask me to pick a favorite...much to difficult to choose. I will say that I'm lovin' the stick pins of the first one, and the color and cutout of the second -- among other things. Just wonderful Kim. Will we see more today?! Bev

Two more winners, especially in making me smile!! Hugs~c
