Crafty Gals ~ Who did I CASE?

It is the 5thof the month, so I am back with another challenge of the Crafty Gals! We are a group of bloggers who have monthly challenges, caring comments & fun chit chat on SCS—our favorite stamping site to visit.

This month, the challenge was posted by Melina. Here are the details of her challenge:

Guess Who I'm CASEing?!

We were to go back to the month of March on one of the Crafty Gals blogs—it did not matter which one we chose. We then were to find a project from that month on their blog and CASE it. We are not to list whose blog we visited—everyone is to guess. This will also be kind of like a scavenger hunt. We'll want to go look at the original "artwork" CASED so we'll be visiting all of the March blogs all over again.

There were so many awesome cards that I loved in March—I even copied a bunch of their creations and printed out a sheet of them to use for inspiration in the future. I had fun making this fall card and I hope Melina thinks I met the challenge as well as the mystery lady I CASE’d!  I am going to post a link to the original card at the end of this post, so if you want to see the original card, you can check it out there.

I have also entered my card in the following challenges:
Ribbon Carousel ~ Use ribbon or twine
Shopping Our Stash ~ Winter Holiday
The Stamping Boutique ~ Holiday Cards
Craft Spot By Kimberly ~ Merry Christmas
Paper Pretties ~ Use Ribbon
Image/Sentiment—Rubber Stampede Santa Collage/Stampin’ Up Short& Sweet

Cardstock—SU Riding Cherry Cobbler; Gina K Ivory, Theresa Collins Christmas Collage Red Snowflakes/Music Designer Paper

Ink— SU Riding Cherry Cobbler

Accessories—SU Buttons and Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine; Punches; Ivory Brads; Cherry Cobbler Satin Ribbon

Please check out the blogs of all of the Crafty Gals. All of the blogs are listed on my left sidebar and I hope you will enjoy all of our CASE’d creations this month. Thanks for joining us!

Here is a link to the original card--no name listed, just the link to the sweet card

Oh Barb! I love love love that card. The Santa image is one of the best ones I've seen!

And I'm dancing up and down... squealing... because I know WHO you CASE'd. Woo Hoo! Go me! (shhh!!! The only reason I know is because I almost CASE'd the same card. LOL! Wouldn't that have been funny if I had.)

Barb your image is stunning!!!. I was looking for a nice Santa's face and I think this is gorgeous. I have to find out if it is not retired. Gorgeous card!!!


Gorgeous card, Barb! I love that it's all done in reds and that stamp is awesome!

This card turned out so pretty. I just love that image. I tried to use it for my Christmas cards last year and it is no longer available. It was on eBay for a lot of $! The monochromatic is just perfect.


Wow Barb! This is striking! So gorgeous! I need to look and see whose it is. Great job!
