Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin – CASEing Ksenija 2

Hi! I’m here Chasing Mojo with Sweet Kobylkin. 🙂 This is a great idea that Ksenija had to help us get back into the creative mode after Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. I’ve been having a lot of fun CASEing multiple cards from those offered up at Sweet Kobylin.

I started by CASEing our hostess, Ksenija’s beautiful offering. I CASEd her card 3 different ways.

Here’s CASE #2:



I did some cutting for CASology, die & fussy cutting with a utility knife.



Thanks so much for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

SPL – HB 101!

Hi! I’m here with a wicked fast post. Mainers say “wicked” a lot. I’m a Mainer and I made the card in this post for another Mainer, so I thought that “wicked” would be an appropriate adjective for this short post. I’m going to play this card over at CASology’s 160: Number.IMG_0247editedI made this card for my husband’s grandfather. Yes! He does turn 101 in September!!! He’s still fit, plays golf, goes to Florida from Maine in the “Winta” and has an incredible mind. IMG_0244edited_edited-1His favorite color is purple.

Thanks for stopping by!
