CASE-ing Donna

Hi there!

I haven't played in a challenge in such a long time. I know I've never been one to join in too many of them anyway, but I just wish I could find time to play in more of them, more often.

When I saw that my friend, Donna was the muse this month over at the CASE Study Challenge blog, I just had to play along! I ADORE Donna's amazing cards - she is so very talented!

Here's Donna's card for this week:


Isn't it cool?! She always comes up with such awesome ideas!

Here's my CASE:


I used Fired Brick Distress Paint, mixed with a bit of water. Then I created some splatters using black, watery ink. I love the little enamel hearts from Prima! The sentiment is from Hero Arts. It's included in their new clear set called, Dauber Bunch. 

I'll be a happy stamper for the next week or so - it's my vacation time and I don't have to work for the next seven days - yay!

I hope your weekend is going well and you're finding some time to get crafty! Thanks for stopping by! ♥

A Card and an Announcement

Hi there!

I've got a simple card to share with you today.




I love burgundy and gray together! I used the same flower and matching die as in my last post. It's from the Hero Arts, Butterfly and Flowers clear set. The sentiment and tiny butterflies also come in the set.

And now for the announcement!




The final dates have been set for the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop! It will start next Monday, January 20th and run all week long, with 4 to 5 stops each day. There will be giveaways (including one from me) and tons of inspiration! I'm really excited to share the cards I've made for the hop and can't wait for you to see them!

Enjoy your week! ♥♥♥
