Hi again to all my lovely friends! Whew this has been a busy card week for me, but it has been a lot of fun. I am entering this card in a new challenge for me on Splitcoaststampers.  I have been a member there for a few months but just have not checked out the challenges. Well this week I did and decided to do as many as I can which means more cards for Operation Write Home! I really am concentrating on making as many cards as I can this year for this wonderful project.

Here is today’s card……


I don’t use negative die cuts very often so I thought this was a good opportunity to get some practice with it.  The papers for this card are SU Love Impressions and another try at Judy Rozema’s technique (click here to check it out).

 SCS CAS152_2

I used Sizzix Garden Delights letters and Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s Be Mine Floral Set and their "Family" Block Stamp (1" x 1.5").

SCS CAS152_3

I added some SU Hodgepodge hardware and a bow.  I’m not sure if this qualifies for CAS, but we’ll see.

SCS CAS152_4

This is the CASE Study inspiration….

….and at Splitcoaststampers the CAS152 challenge is CAS Way to Use It Challenge: DIE CUTS.
