CASE Study #199 - Friends Always

How are you doing?  I am keeping so busy with the new puppy.   She's a big ball of fluff.  I left her alone most of the day yesterday so I could meet up with a friend who agreed to take over the Treasurer responsibilities for our Boy Scout Troop.  I'm glad to have that off my plate - it took a lot of time and I'm not as active in the troop as I used to be since my son turned 18 last November.  Moriko did very good while I was gone - no mess to clean up.  Maybe my husband was an angel and didn't tell me?  He beat me home. 

A new challenge begins today at CASE Study.  Our muse this month is  Shari Carroll,  The Creative Director and Product Manager for Simon Says Stamp.   I love how she used that fabulous circle die cut to showcase pretty little bits of patterned paper.  I tried to do the same thing with mine.  I always thought these little girls on Crate Paper paper were too cute to cover up.  I left a few windows open just like Shari did too!    I can't wait to see how this card inspires you!

Oh yes - we have two guesties this month! Amy Tsuruta and Tenia Nelson!!

Wow! This is so elegant...love the inlaid dies...it is so delicate...also like the butterflies and the sparkly butterfly gem trail. Cute sentiment too!

Wow, awesome swirly design! And those little girls peeking out are adorable. I have been so behind with visiting blogs and just realized you have a new puppy--so adorable! Do you still have your other dog?

Joyful colors, Jeanne. So agree, hate to cover up the images on some papers! Crazy fun window peeks too!

Jeanne, this is STUNNING! I thought Shari's card was as good as it could get, but you've matched the brilliance of her card for sure!!

I'm in complete awe of this beautiful card and all the die cutting you did. What a gorgeous result. Love that you have a new little puppy, but they really are so much work. I hope he keeps being so good. :)
