I Cased It

Good morning, it has been a while since I last posted. While I have been missing from here, I has been giving my craft room an overhaul. There is still some to finish but I have taken a break to make a few DT cards.

The first was for the challenge starting today at ABC Christmas. The theme this time around is
c for Case Ours.
1.  Look through the ABC Christmas Challenge blog and pick one of the DT's cards that you love. 
2.  Make your own great Christmas card based on the card you picked. You could be inspired by a sketch, a gorgeous colour combo or a fab embellishment.

Picking just one card to CASE will be the hardest part - they were all fab! 

PS - you can snag this Png file and add it to the card/creation you are going to CASE so people can see you're CASE-ing a card/creation.

Our sponsor this week is Saturated Canary, one of the hottest stamp companies around!

Hello! My name is Krista Smith. 
I have been drawing and doodling my whole far back as I can remember! Over the last year and a half, I have been selling it on Etsy. I was approached to draw stamps for Sugar Nellie, a stamp company based in Scotland. After designing only rubber for a year, I decided to branch out a bit into the digital world:). As an artist, I appreciate the versatility of digi's for the stamper. I also like releasing stamps that are a little more obscure or unique. Monsters, nerds with big glasses...even a mermaid:). Those ones are really fun for me to draw! After opening up my digi shop in the beginning of September, I've been busy filling orders:). I am really thrilled and very humbled that ladies are so receptive to my designs and seem to enjoy coloring them a lot! I am so inspired by these amazing colorists!! I have met so many wonderful, talented ladies through this business and look forward to building new friendships, too! My personal blog, Saturated Canary, is filled with bits of my family life, artwork, and a slight obsession with fashion;). I also run a new challenge/ inspiration blog, Saturated Canary Challenge with my amazing design team. I'd love to meet you and be inspired by your own creations! Do stop by and say hello!:) 
Prize is 2 digi's from Krista's shop for the winner. 

For my card I have chosen to case this card that Lacey made four our Y is for Your favorite Die/Punch.

I loved the layout of Lacey's card and the cute little punched edge that extended past the page so that is what I focused on when assembling my card.
The image is Hand Me Downs which was generously provided by Krista for this challenge. I have  coloured her up in traditional reds and greens and paired her up with some wonderful papers from the MME collection Sweater Weather.  I've used a holly edge punch to mimic the punched edge and added a little poinsettia for the flower.
I hope that you will join us. I am looking forward to seeing your take on our cards.
Have Fun and Happy Crafting!
