CASEing again

I'm still CASEing my SBS sisters.

This one CASEs Viv. Her card was a Christmas card with a fabulous Father Christmas face silver-embossed on the front. I don't have any stamps that would look anywhere near as good so I decided to keep the layout and the colours but change everything else. I used one of my Cuttlebug folders to emboss the vellum overlay on the background. I have about 6 of these folders and really don't use them very often at all. Must do something about that. The stamp is from Baroque Motifs and is emblossed in silver on Glossy White cardstock. The base card is also the Glossy White. I wrapped SU Silver and Gold cord (both retired) around the top of the card, or I guesw it could be the side, depending on your perspective. My mum was quite impressed with this card and suggested it would be a great Sympathy card, due to its simplicity and lack of colour. I think she is right.

I had a really hard time choosing just one of Deby's cards to CASE but finally decided on this one. I have to get me the SU set Sassy Stems. I say that to myself everytime I see another great card made using it but I really mean it this time. I only changed 2 things on this card - the stamp (from Oh So Lovely, Hostess Set) and the colour of the bling (Turquoise rhinestone brad). This also turned out really simple and elegant, at least that is what I think.

Well, I haven't finished with this series yet as I think these were CASEs numbered 15 and 16 so that makes 3 more to go. I shall make that my mission today. I don't plan on doing much else today. Yesterday I had the worst case of Hayfever I have every had. That may not sound like much to those of you who are not Hayfever sufferers but constant sneezing and blocked sinuses totally saps your energy. I went to bed at 8pm last night - and still didn't sleep very well. I have sent the rest of the household off to church this morning so I can have some quiet time to myself. Hopefully whatever caused the Hayfever has passed and I can recover today.

Wishing you a relaxing Sunday.

Sorry to hear about the hay fever

The stamp on Deby's CASE is just so pretty, I'll have to look into SU, I hear there are a few UK distributors now...

I expect by the end of today you will officially be our Sherlock Holmes of the Sisters - the CASE is solved!
