CAS-ology #7 and Blogaversary Winner

I have been a bit under the weather this week and had a difficult time just getting to the computer just to check my emails, but happy to say that I did manage to get one card made and that is for the fabulous challenge blog, CAS-ology...I am really loving their challenges and trying to remember to keep my card simple but still creative, not always an easy thing to do.  I am going to keep this post a bit short, put my feet up and watch the reminder of the Giants game, and by the way they are winning at this point 4-2 against the Braves....Thanks for taking a peek!

Now on to the winner from my Blogaversary post last week....thank you to all who posted comments and to all of you who are faithful readers and always leave me wonderful comments, you are the BEST! I am so blessed to part of this wonderful little community of card makers and paper crafters and have learned so much from so many of you, thank you from the bottom of my heart! Now on to the winner....drum roll please or should I say random number generator please ( I tried to cut and paste the image but as most you know I am not very good and some of this computer stuff, so needless to say I could not figure that out), so here is the winning number....

  1. What a beautiful sympathy card. So clever to use that Island block to 'gound' your image (!). And, you applied the rule of threes, too. Can you tell that I have been studying my new Papercrafting Design book? Anyway, this card works really well, and has a very comforting and soothing feel.

  2. Kim this is such a lovely sympathy card. I love those blocks of green as a base. Thank you so much for joining us this week at CASology!

  3. It's a lovely sympathy card, Kim! I remember doing block (shadow) stamping years ago and it's good to see someone use it again; I've always loved it! Hope you continue to feel better in the days ahead!!

  4. beautiful sympathy card... love the color-blocking! thanks so much for playing along with CASology!

  5. FABulous card! Simple, creative, just beautiful!

  6. I sure like the distressed rectangles on your card Kim, so perfect with the focal point stamped in the middle. Very elegant card, perfect for a difficult card to send. Hope you are feeling better!

  7. What a wonderful sympathy is such a comforting color! Love the trio of blocks and that beautiful floral silhouette! Thanks for joining us at CASology! :)

  8. Congrats, Jill!

    Kim, this design is fantastic! You're sold bold and clever. I love how you stamped those flowers in one of the blocks.

  9. This is a real stunner, Kim! Love those blocks of greeN and the fabulous silhouette!

  10. Congratulations Jill!!
    And Kim I love this!!
    That flower looks perfect in the distressed box...
    and love how you muted them!
    A fabulous card! :)
    And hope you're feeling better now...
    I've been wondering but I thought since you were off now that you may have really been "off" doing some traveling! ;)
    Take care and feel better soon!

  11. What a soothing, lovely sympathy card.

  12. This is such a beautiful sympathy card! I am going to have to remember this layout the next time I need one.

    Thanks for the prize!!! Sorry I missed coming to check it out - I have been painting outside the last couple weeks trying to get things done before the rains start up again here in Seattle. Thought I would much rather be crafting and blog surfing!!! LOL! :)
