CASE STUDY #209 Friends Forever

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are having a good week!  I'm still getting used to my kids schedules.  They both go to a local university so they're home each night - but classes are at all different times, and it seems like there is always someone coming or going, and I never know who's home for dinner.  I'm glad the weather is starting to get colder - I'll start making chili, and pot pies and other things that are easy to reheat in a snap.  I need to find some good crock pot recipes that can keep warm and be ready whenever someone decides to come home and eat.  

A new challenge starts today at Case Study Challenge Blog.  Our guestie this month is the fabulous Debbie Hughes!  She has beautiful style and I love her blog.  Is there anything this lady can't do?  Look at this beautiful design for us today.  Embossing, gems, ribbon, and those pretty feathers.  Feeling inspired?  I didn't want to copy Debbie's design, I wanted to make it my own. What did I love most about Debbie's design?  Well ... I zoomed in on that pretty gemmed wreath in the background.  I'm all about color so I switched up the soft dreamy white and kraft colors, and went for some bold blues.  Instead of the horizontal lines from the ribbon and twine, I added card stock stripes before I die cut my wreath.   I can't wait to see what you make for this challenge.  There are so many possibilities!

Need a little more inspiration?  Check out what the rest of the team made for your visit today! 

Now it's your turn!  You have a week to play - I hope I see you at CASE Study!  It's a great place to get inspired!  Have a great day!!

I love how you used the leaves in place of the feathers in Debby's card. Jeanne, how you come up with so many unique card ideas I will never know! Every card is so different with so many little elements that subtly add special touches, yet I can tell your card from others every single time! Love this one!
