Blogging in the Middle of the Week

Supplies used: Stamps - SU Pretty Peonies, Hugs and wishes.
Ink - Old Olive. Paper - Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, SU Pallet of Prints 07.
Accessories - quilled flower.
This is my card for our Doubledog Dare for the week. Michelle (aka sf9rfan, Stop and Stamp the Roses) challenged us to case a card from the SU catty! What a GREAT challenge this was...I love casing. It's the best way to get stamping done!! So I decided I was going to flip open the book and case what ever it opened up to. I landed on page 48. OK, maybe not. I ask you, who has time to make 18+ little boxes and alphas and string them up to make a swag? Not anyone in my stamp room!! LOL!! So, I took a more reasonable approach and tried again. This time I browsed through the catty and found a page with a stampset that I own on it. Yahh, there you go....Pretty Peonies -- Page 88. Now this was fun!! I happened to have a spare orange quilled flower that I made awhile back to use with the color combo the card featured, so I was good to go!! Finished this in just a few minutes...awww, now that's stamping I can handle at midnight!! Thanks for checking it out all. Sweet dreams! Anne

Hi Anne, I really like your case for that double dog challenge you gals play. Love the paper quilled flower, it actually captures your eye and then it on to the pattern paper. Fun,fun. Hope there is lots of creative time in your near future! I am always lookin' for ya!

Super catty case Anne! love the double colors on your beautiful bloom! It took me a while to find a card to case too - once I picked a stamp set it was definately easier!
