Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic week! It might have been a short one for you as Monday was the holiday. It is the time of year when the All-Star baseball teams are playing their tournaments around the Grand Valley. Nick chose not to do Little League this year and therefore, was not eligible for the All-Star teams. I have to say, that it is kind of nice! Nick and his dad went and watched a game last night and we are going to watch one this morning. That should be fun!
Today's card is another that I CASE'd from the catalog. And I happened to find a contest along these lines that Gretchen Barron is hosting! It is called the Inspiration In Action CASE Contest! Click 'here' to find more information about that. Copying the layouts in the catalog is what I do best at the moment!! I wonder how many times you can enter - lol! Anyway, I tried to post a picture of the card I CASE'd but I couldn't figure it out right now. But this card is on page 72 and it is the first card on the left of the page - the cat card. Love the layout of this one! I kept the colors pretty much the same. I did change the bottom part of my card and the focal point. The stamps are different as well and I shortened the length of the banner. I did use two little mini brads! Boy, are those thing CUTE!! Anyway, I do hope that you will check out her blog post for the specifics of the contest and then get to creating!! This will be fun! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
