so as some of you know i've been toying with the idea of doing something get the mojo going and to post more often...the idea is simple...CASES..Copy And Share Every might not be weekly at first though...with all the stuff going on right now...i.e. my dd's illness...grands...other family obligations...but i figure i deserve some time right?...i should be one of my obligations! i'm going to give it a whirl...

for the debut CASES card i looked to SCS (did you have any doubt?)...and found a card that i not only liked but that i believed i could copy-ish...

this "little black dress" card by stampingwriter is what i decided on...i was going to paper piece it also...changed my mind...and changed a few other things on the card as well...

feel free to CASE this card too...if you do let me know...i'd love to see...

What's Your Poison Card Swap

Another post..Another swap...this swap over on SCS caught my eye because of the hostess and because i like drink/cocktail/wine images...the theme of the swap was to make a card featuring  "your poison"....i had several images i could use...and settled on Heidi by Victoria Case...a saucy wench if there ever was one...

Beer is My Poison
Paper: Cherry Cobbler..Basic Black..Basic Gray..Whisper White..DP
Ink: Printer (various SU Colors/RBG)..versa marker
Stamp: Heidi
Accessories: Simply gem..ticket corner punch..clear embossing powder/heat gun

i used my SU Simply Scored to add texture to the base...colored the image using GIMP..and heat embossed clear on the beer mugs (though it doesn't show in the pic)....and now i think i'll sit on the deck with a "frosty beverage" to watch the sunset (well in a few hours anyway)....
