A Case That Isn't........

As you all know, I always case a card for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. This past week I had no time so I'm finally getting it done. I have these image I've been wanting to use (some of them from my sis) and some from myself. LOL They are all from Stamps by Judith. Those stamps are really fun and you can mix them up and use so many ways.

The Queen is Roberta aka stampin'nana and this is the card I decided to case. Hmmmmmm....doesn't look the same? Instead of making a square card, I went with an A2, changed the images, and for ribbon, I used a Tim Coffey adhesive border called Blossomwood. I  love those things because they add so much to a card.

I can only imagine what Roberta will think when she sees I said I cased her card. I must have made this card or started it 10-12 times. Once I stamped the pot right side up...wrong, then a smudge and a do-over. I started with designer paper at the top, had to change that, on and on it went. I made the photo, did my watermark, and have uploaded this card 3 times in as many ways. Now, it doesn't much resemble her card. I just can't do it again as I have no time.

I really like these images with this particular sentiment. What ya think?

Remaining recipe:
Paper-PTI white cardstock, Bo Bunny dbl sided dp (for pot) , other dp unknown, and some scraps
Ink-Memento Bamboo Leaves, Potter's Clay, Rich Cocoa, Tuxedo Black, Scor-Pal

Thought provoking!!! So what is that mouse doing? Is he glad the cat passed him unnoticed? Is he following the cat? Is the cat blind and has no sense of smell? Is the cat on a mission and doesn't care about the mouse? Or is the cat sooo happy that he loves mice now? Maybe the cat is so hot in this Alabama weather that he can barely move? Maybe the cat is excited that Bama Football starts in a few short months? Fun card Brenda!!! Hugz!

I think this is a totally adorable card, CASE or not! Tell nwilliams6 that the paw prints lead me to believe the cat is trapped underneath the flower pot and little mousie is now safe. LOL
