{A True Friend is You Friend}

Good morning!! Well, I made 3 cards yesterday!! Woohoo!!  The mojo is catching up after the move and I’m trying to participate in a few of the challenges I’ve fallen in love with this year.  Today’s card is for the super fun challenge over on CASE Study this week.  They have been celebrating one year of inspiration and this week we got to CASE Chupa the uber talented owner and founder of CASE Study :)  I admire so many of her cards, but settled on the one below.  I was attracted by the colours, the note paper die and that luscious ribbon :)  I kept the CASE pretty close to her card, just changing up the papers, the ribbon and the sentiment.  I broke out my new to me PTI Fillable Frames #11 I picked up at Stamp-a-faire last month…wow, it seems like a lifetime ago!  This week is my last full week of holidays.  I start setting up my classroom next week ready for the new year on September 6th.  It’s been a whirlwind of a summer, lots of changes, but all good.  Hope your week has started off with a bang :)

paper: pti kraft, cream, authentique splendid

ink: su choc chip, versafine onyx

Such a pretty card, Diva! Love your take on Chupa's card! Is that another huge button I see being used? I really need to use mine - they just sit at the bottom of my jar!
Hope you're settling in OK at your dad's and making the most of your last week (it's my last week too!)

How pretty are the colors in this DP?!?! This just brings out all my girlie-ness!!! LOVE IT!! Gorgeous card Maureen! So glad you found some crafty time AND made it so productive!!!

Lynn said...

Oh...what an absolutely fabulous CASE. I don't own any of those little flowers...and I'm thinking I need them due to your fabulous creations...and that fillable frame part of the all important SAF order? :)

Andrea Ewen said...

Oh, yes sweet've still got it going on! I adore your card, the vintage feel, the twine, flowers, buttons...oh they all appeal to my girly side!
Hope all is well at Dad's and hope production on the new house is still progressing well! I can't believe school is starting already, feels like the summer just started! I guess it's a bit of "normalcy" back...I know we could use a little of that! Glad to see you Mojo is front and center...your card is beautiful!

Hi Maureen

I really like your friend card. The papers are great and the sentiments you use or so sweet. I don't have anything like this so will be looking them up.

Oh my! What a lovely card to case and you did it up beautifully! I absolutely love that peep of shiny pink button and the fabulous swirls of twine behind that adorable flower. A perfect sentiment and your fabulous stitching and it's a winner of a card.
