I just had to case a card of my friend, Pam aka pam124 at Splitcoaststampers. Again, this week we are honoring past queens. The letters to choose from this week are P-R.  My good friend, Pam, falls into this category. I wish I had time to case several cards of different stampers but I don't as I have family coming in starting today and through the weekend. I may go missing for several days after this post. The beautiful card I am case-ing is this one. Pam does such gorgeous creations.

I will also enter my card into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery and Inspired by Stamping IBSIC #62. The colors are brown, lt. green, and cream/white. Gosh, my green doesn't look like the photo but I am using Stampin'Up! Sage Shadow and it looked green until I went back and checked the inspiration photo. Hope this is o.k.

Have a great weekend.

Vase of Flowers

A short post today--I used the colors for my card by joining the Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge: IBSIC #63 and will also enter my card into the Inspired by Stamping Customer Gallery.

I think everything is self explanatory if you read the recipe. My vase is paper pieced. I just stuck one stem of blooms in my large vase but I've actually done that a time or two in real life. :-) I guess I could have used the slimmer vase in the set  or added more flowers but this is what I had my mind set on so here it is.
