Celebrating 300K -- Day 2!!

If you stopped by yesterday you know that my friend Laura Fredrickson and I are celebrating a blogging milestone with 300,000hits!

Yesterday, we asked you to CASE a Laura creation to be in the running for one of two drawings from both of us. Well, today, I am your CASE target!

All you need to do is find a card on my blog or in my SCS gallery, CASE it or be inspired by it and let us see what you came up with! All you need to do is share your link on my Mr. Linky widget on this post or upload to SCS using the keyword CEL300J.

So.... let's cut to the case!

I chose THIS card of mine to case. BUT, when I remade it, I changed up the size to be a 4-1/4" by 4-1/4" size! I am loving these minis - especially now that I have a source for fun little matching envelopes!

The paper I used is a mix of scraps that I had in my stash. It's amazing how little green/yellow I have! When I found some that kind of matched the scheme I had going on in my head -- I quickly grabbed it up! It's a mix of Bo Bunny dp, SU dp, Yellow Bazzill and some old Kaliedoscope dp.

Put it all togethere and.... here's what I came up with!

I used the Mixed Greetings set for my main image and the word is from the old Fantasy Floral Garden set -both from Flourishes! I stamped the floral image using Palette Hybrid ink, colored with watercolor pencils and then blended with a SU Blender pen. I stamped one of the bowls from the Mixed Greetings set using Bamboo Leaves Memento ink and stamped it onto a patterned paper in the Basic Grey Urban Prairie pack. I wanted it to have a little more dimension than just the bowl stamped on plain white paper. I think it worked! Layer it all up, add some decorative corner accents and bling (Heart corner punch from Fiskars), add your message "tag" thanks to two oval SU punches and... done! The message and pot was popped up with some foam tape.

Here's a close up!

The winner of my drawing will win not only a Flourishes stamp set of your choice, but a $10 gift certificate to the store to pick up some other goodies as well! Keep in mind, Laura will be drawing too from this list for a giveaway ofher own. Check out her blog HERE for those details!

Want to take part in the fun??? You have until next Monday (March 30th) at midnight to make and upload your card for each of the challenges. We'll announce winners of each set of goodies sometime on Tuesday! Play as many times as you like!

You can leave a comment, but I'd love it if you left the link to your creation here....



Thanks for stopping by! See you back here soon!
