FS171

Well it's official I REALLY overdid it today (ask Allison if you don't believe me). I think I am caught up with my comments and emails, but my shoulder is KILLING me. I spent the entire day on the computer -- I know dummy me, I will regret it later. I was able to create a card though. I had this puffy flower and the white frame already done, so I decided to use them.


Today's Featured Stamper is Cathleen aka Ctronia. WOW, Cathleen is one talented lady!! I had such a difficult time choosing which card to CASE there were so many absolutely stunning cards -- like 100, and I am NOT overestimating. You can see the card I CASEd here.

I changed a few things -- the DP, sentiment, the border punches, the ribbon, and I used a puffy flower instead of a silk one -- but it's still the same.

The puffy flower tutorial is over there on the right side of my site if you need it.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Fabulous card. It really is a special card! I, too, used Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze on a card this weekend. There is something really beautiful about it. I love the fact that you created a beautiful frame for the inside with lots of space to write a sentiment.

You are a goofball...I have to spend my day on the computer but you don't! Plus, you can get that from gardening or something summery (I can't...dang snow!). You know I heart this. Love the puffy flower with the inked edges and that ribbon treatment. And all those punched edges? You're killing me!
