How's your week going? Mine is crazy, after being gone for four days last week, but it's worth it. Our trip to Dallas was very educational, exciting, and fun. Three college visits down, two more to go. Today is Wednesday, so I can see the weekend light at the end of the tunnel approaching. I am going to be a total bum, and do as little as possible. I need to catch up on some much needed rest. I hope your weekend will include lots of fun, and hopefully some crafting. :-)
The next CASE-ing Christmas challenge is posted, and there are a couple of changes. We have new design team members, and we are now a monthly challenge blog, with posts going live on the 5th of each month. There is also a monthly prize to be won. Who doesn't like prizes, right? To kick things off, this month's CASE card just happens to be one of mine. Here is the original.
And here is my CASE'd card.
I stuck to the design, but changed up the colors and elements. I love this new to me stitched hearts border die. I was happy I got to use it, finally. I switched out the pearl for a jingle bell, and embossed the sentiment, and called it done. It's a pretty simple card, and it's fairly flat, so it will mail nicely. I'm excited to have another Christmas card ready to send at the end of the year. I'm going to enter this for the following challenges.
Christmas Cards All Year Round: Snowflakes
Crazy 4 Challenges #297: Include the word Happy on your project.
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes
Simon's Wednesday Challenge: Tie It Up
I hope you'll head over to the CASE-ing Christmas blog to see what fabulous inspiration is posted for you. I also look forward to seeing how you interpret my original card. Can't wait to see them all, and visit your blogs!
Have a wonderful day!
