Craft Gals ~ Honoring Jeanette

It is the 5th of 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 year our challenges are going to be a bit different.  Each month, Melina will chose one of our group to highlight and our challenge is to CASE a card from her blog—or make a card that highlights some of her loves.  This month our girl is Jeanette and I love her style of cards.  I knew when I saw this card that I wanted to make a similar one.

I like it so much I used it for one of the optional swaps for a Shoebox Swap I am attending this Saturday.  The theme is any occasion and I think this made an elegant Thank You card.  I hope Jeanette and the rest of the gals like the card too!

Oh my goodness, Barb! I love your card! It is gorgeous!!!

Thank you for honoring me by choosing one of my cards that I wasn't particularly happy with and making your rendition of it GORGEOUS!!! (It even helped me to like mine a little bit better. LOL!)

I sure wish I could join you at the Shoebox again this time. Such fun memories! Enjoy the day!!!

Love both cards. I really like how you both used two different embossing folders.
