A Case

 
 
My 2nd post for today. I didn't post anything for almost a week and had two yesterday and I'll probably have a couple today. Occasionally, that is the way it works.
 
My friend and blogging pal, Bonnie, was named the Featured Stamper this week on Splitcoaststampers (FS312).  This is the card I cased from her super gallery of mostly CAS cards. I just love the sled image she used but didn't have it. So, I'm using this adorable image from Meljen's Designs to case her card. I added my Merry Christmas sentiment on the inside.

I colored with Copics and added some Stampin'Up! Dazzling Diamonds on the snow.

Bonnie, I sure hope you have been enjoying this week seeing all the cards made just for you.

I'm also entering this card into the February Christmas Challenge on Splitcoaststampers: SCSCCFEB13.

I failed to mention last week that my Funky  card won top 3 honors at Inspired by Stamping. I don't enter a lot of challenges so it was awesome to find I had won two on the same day.  My blogging pal Colleen Dietrich is on the IBS DT and she has certainly inspired me with all her awesome cards using their products , so much that I have placed and received an order I can't wait to use.

That mailbox image is too CUTE! You colored it so pretty with beautiful color! I could use a scarf right now with the snow we are getting here. We are due for
3-5 inches. It's pretty, but it's cold...brrr! Have a great weekend, hugs!

That's an adorable image from Meljen's, which I happen to have but have not yet colored up. I love what you've done with it. Great colors. I got it, thinking to do a few cards for Operation Write Home, and didn't get them done. Sending winter cards to OWH now seems a bit of a waste, so it will probably wait until next fall.

Love the image - has such a great feel to it - cold outside but the fun scarf is warm and there is the hope of warmth from some mail (which will soon no longer be coming on Saturdays :(

Lovely card Benzi. So cute. Congrats on the top 3 honors - your cards are definitely top notch in my book! Hugz.
