SIM #4

This is the last of my 4 scheduled posts.  I can't even guess at this moment with all that I have going on the next couple of weeks if I will have gotten some time to stamp between now and when this posts actually is published.  I hope so!  I guess you'll have to tune in on Tuesday to find out ;)  I post on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  Sometimes all three days, sometimes only one or two, but those are the days I publish posts.  It's fun to see that some of you are taking advantage of "following" me so that you don't have to guess as to whether I've posted or not.  You get a pretty little e-mail with my post every time I post :)

The card below is a CASE of Ilina Crouse.  Her card is HERE.  I changed the colors up a bit because I can't ever just totally copy someone else's card.  I'm curious how all of you are about that?  Can you just copy everything, or do you have to tweak even just one little thing to make it more your own?

Well, have a great weekend and hopefully I'll "see" you soon!!

Another One...

This card is another case of myself.  Here is the card that I cased.  I REALLY like this color combo and the use of the Rhinestone Brads.  What do you think?

I should be back from Kentucky now, maybe we have a house lined up - I sure hope we do.  When I get back to posting and it's not scheduled in advance, I'll let you know.  I'm sitting here writing this a week ago.  :)

Have a lovely day!

CASE'ing Myself

I CASE'd this card I made that won Shelli's Creative Challenge back in August to use in my Stamps-in-the-Mail (SIM) program.  I hope that they like it.  The change in colors was to go along with the Play Date Designer Series Paper color scheme that we used for this SIM kit.

I am still in Kentucky but hope you're having a great day wherever you are!! :)  Thanks in advance for your comments!!!

CASE'ing Jen

When I saw this card by Jen Timko, I just knew that I had to CASE it.  I changed the colors up a bit, added some of the FABULOUS new glimmer brads, and tried out something I've never done before - put a lighter CS behind a darker one, as a mat.  To be totally honest, I don't think I like the light behind the dark that much, but it was fun to try something different.  I hope you like my card, and if you check hers out you can see where the sketch came from (Stamping 411) and all of that.  Leave her some love - I am sure she appreciates your kind comments as much as I do :)

As for me - this post, and the next three, are all scheduled while I am out of state house-hunting.  My stamping has been sparse, and it doesn't look to get much better.  I will do my best though, and at least you've got 3 more posts coming!! :)

Have a great day!
