CASE-ing Christmas Challenge #28

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome to my first CASE-ing Christmas Challenge post as a Design Team Member.  I am very excited to be working with this wonderful design team as I have to stretch a bit and that is usually a good thing.  Each month CASE-ing Christmas Challenge will offer a card to CASE (Copy And Share Everything).  You can choose your inspiration from the offered card, it could be color, texture, design, etc.  Here is my take on this month's inspiration card:


Now here is the inspiration card from Steph:

I love Steph's design.  I love the idea of SNOW and snowflakes are right up there with snow, snowmen, glittery icicles and more.  I have a wonderful collection of snowmen, crystal icicles, glittery and handmade snowflakes.  I would keep this stuff up all year if people would not think I am crazy.  I do keep my snowmen and a few selected snow inspired items out for most of the year.  Here in Texas we don't get much snow, but we do get ice almost every year.  I usually don't venture out into either except to take a few pictures.

Here are the details of my card, all items used are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated:
Stamp set:  Endless Wishes
Card Stock:  Pool Party and Whisper White
Ink:  Lost Lagoon
Misc:  Scallop Edge Punch (retired), Frosted Sequins (retired), 3/8" Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin Ribbon (retired), Snowflakes Embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue and SNAIL adhesive

Well, it is time for you to get your creation linked up.  CASE-ing Christmas Challenge is now a monthly challenge.  Our challenges run from the 5th of the month at 6:00am CST until 11:55pm CST the last day of the month.  Oh, a new feature is that we will be celebrating CHRISTMAS on the 25th of each month with a random giveaway.  We will have a variety of prizes to give out, but you MUST be linked up by the 23rd of each month in order to be entered into the drawing.  So, get your clever creation made and linked up to join in on the fun!

This card is entered into the following challenges:

"Waving" Hello

Happy Thursday!

It has been an outstanding day.  The weather is HOT as is expected in July in Texas.  There is a slight breeze although it is a bit humid these days.  It is just a wonderful summer day. 

What a shock we have had with the attack on two military facilities in Tennessee.  If you are a praying person, please be in prayer for the families and friends of the fallen and injured and the surrounding areas there in Tennessee.  This is yet another eye-opener for America. 

This design has been ‘floating’ around in my mind for the last three days.  I played with the ‘water’, the ‘rays of sunshine’ and more.  The flag many times; first it was too big, then too small and now I think it works quite nicely.


Here are the details:
Stamp sets:  Perfect Pennants and Work of Art (I love this set)
Card stock:  Soft Sky, All Abloom and Stacked with Love DSP stacks (retired)
Ink:  Baked Brown Sugar (retired), Daffodil Delight, Real Red and Tempting Turquoise
Misc:  Circles Collection Framelits Dies, Bermuda Bay Sequins, uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen, Multipurpose Liquid Glue and SNAIL adhesive
