A Beautiful CASE

I have two posts for today!

This first one I have been wanting to make this card for awhile now. I selected the photo for the TSG inspriation challenge because it was totally me...and I never got to make the card I had in my head. Sure enough when I was stalking the Trendsetter's blogs Karen Giron made the card I had in my head. Oh is it ever pretty.

I hadn't planned on making the card until a friend of mine needed a card for her sister-in-law. I thought oh well I'm going to make it anyway. I used the carnations from the Forever set from There She Goes Clear Stamps instead of the tulips - and I didn't do the sewing on my card because I broke my sewing maching and I don't remember how to thread the bobbin. There is no sentiment, because my friend wanted a sentiment that was more personal.

If you click on Karen's name above you can see her card. Here is mine. I think it's fabulous and now I'm having a hard time having to give it to my friend. Why do we make these cards other than to give them away!!

Carnations

Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day!
