Can You Case It? 34

Posted on

That was a good Friday! I managed to escape the office for 3 hours! I had to go to one of our other locations and set up an iPad and mount for someone in a wheelchair with Cerebral Palsy. She was quite happy with her new gadget. After that I stopped by the Apple store to exchange a keyboard that stopped working. They are so nice there, never any issues just a smile and a thank you. To top it off they released us at 3:30! I came home and took a nap! LOL! I only got about 4 hours of sleep the night before so I needed it! Taylor came by with her new car and we went to Target to get her some floor mats. I found a new Glade Plug-in that smells amazing, it’s called Woodside Library. Here is their description, “Quiet and comfortable, a window seat at the town library provides a perfect nesting place on a crisp fall day. Cozy up, settle in and enjoy the scent of rich oak and vintage leather-bound volumes”. It has a classically clean scent and it’s not floral which is a nice change! I’m going to spend some time crafting today and then who knows. What are your plans for the weekend?

A while back my friend Eva had asked me if I would be a guest designer on her challenge blog called Can You CaseIt? I said that I would love to and so that’s what today’s card is for. Here is this week’s sketch…


Nice and simple don’t you think? I started my card with a base of Pool Party Card Stock. The background is a piece of paper from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack and I backed it with a piece of Blackberry Bliss. A strip of Pool Party is embossed with the Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and goes down the right side. For my greeting I stamped a stamp from the Hi There Stamp Set in Blackberry Bliss on Whisper White and backed it with another piece of Blackberry Bliss. The feathers are from the Four Feathers Stamp Set and are stamped in Blackberry Bliss and cut out with the Feathers Framelits. A Subtles Designer Button is adhered with a Glue Dot on top of the bottom of the feathers. I used the sequins die that I got the other day to cut out some Blackberry Bliss and put some Crystal Effects on the and adhered them to the left of the greeting. I really love the colors together, cheery without being too bright and you all know how much I love the feathers! So there you have my Guest Designer card for the Can You Case It? sketch challenge for this week. Stop by the blog and see what the rest of the design team has done and show them some love by uploading one of your cards to the gallery! I hope that you enjoyed the card and I thank you for checking in! Have a super Saturday my friends! 🙂
