Good afternoon. I don't know what your weather is like but the humidity here is unbearable. You can't step outside without feeling like you're in a steam bath...even inside, too, with the air conditioning. Plus, it rains every day. Give me lots of sunshine and I'm happy.

I'm back today with another QFTD176 (on Splitcosaststampers) challenge card. I am doing a case of a card belonging to my friend and blogging pal, Nancy aka nwilliams6. She was so sweet to case one of my cards earlier. This week, the names starting with M-N-O are the designated Queens and are stampers that have already been selected queens in the past.. Yes, it is a bit different recently but will be back to normal when we get through the alphabet, I suppose.

This is the card I cased. Of course, I made a few changes but I'm sure you can see the resemblance.

My card is also for the Inspiration Challenge, IC401 on Splitcoaststampers.

Recipe:
Stamps-BasicGrey/flourish corner stamps, Stampin'Up! Well Scripted (sentiment)
Paper-PTI white cardstock, black scraps
Ink-Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories-The Paper Studio punch (flower), Sakura Gelly Roll pen, white pearl

I'm a big fan of black and white cards, I think they always look so elegant...Just like yours does.

It started out very humid our way today too. But fortunately the humidity has gone away for now, and it's supposed to be nice tomorrow too. I May not be card making tomoroow, want to enjoy the nice day while I can...because I'm sure the humidity is sure to come again...

Such a classy card in black and white! A gorgeous flourish! I love flourishes. It's hot and humid here too. Yuck!

nwilliams6 said...

Humid here as well. How sweet of you to case me Benzi! I feel so honored. The card you cased has lived a very eventful life. You cased it and it lives again in your card plus I made it in 2010 and my boss bought it from me a long time ago and then she gave it to Crystal at Crystal's wedding shower so now Crystal has it. How fun is that. Hopefully, your card will have a fun life too. Hugz!
