CASE Showcase #1 – Kim Singdahlsen

Hi bloggies!

Yayayayaya … we are on our way down the coast today … for our brief but well needed holiday! We have a fav spot down at Dolphin Point … but ssshhh … don’t tell everyone … we don’t want it over run with bookings … so that we can’t do this again!!! 😉 So … for the next week … I will be posting some scheduled posts showcasing some delightful cards that I have CASEd from some of my favourite blog buddies! I hope you enjoy seeing these as much as I enjoyed creating them. So … before I show you my 1st CASE … here is Kim’s original card

And … here is my CASE!

Isn’t this a sweet design? I love Kim’s colours … but CASE does mean “Copy & Selectively Edit” so I did try to give it a new spin. I have tried to slightly “tweak” each of the cards for the next week … to make each a little unique … but basically … I loved the designs so much … that many of these are almost direct CASEs! I had so much fun opening my “to CASE” file … and finally creating some of these beauties. Keep watching for tomorrow’s CASE Showcase card.

    Andrea adds: That’s the great thing about CASE cards … they are usually ones that we think we can replicate … so we give them a go! I am back and still tired … but feeling a little rested! We had the perfect week for resting … rain rain & more rain! Hugs xxaxx
