Back to another CASE-ing Tuesday. It is cold outside, so I am down in my stamp room getting things ready as we have our Stampin Up On Stage in just a few weeks. There are 15 of us going to Milwaukee along with thousands of other demonstrators that will be there. It is always a good time and a great place to recharge the stamping batteries. At On Stage, we also like to swap cards or card fronts. So I was working on my cards when I cut a whole stack of paper wrong. Talk about a bummer cause, of course, I didn't have any more of that color left. Luckily I was placing another order and could get that color here in time. So note to self - measure three times and cut once. So that is how this card came about. The Lemon Lime Twist color you see - yep that is the color that I cut wrong so instead of getting upset I decided to make Lemonade out of my mistake.
Here we are back again with another CASE-ing Tuesday. I needed a sympathy card and with it being almost Easter I decided to use the Calla Lillies in the set. You could change the wording and make it an Easter card also. That is another awesome idea to use when stamping. Make up a couple cards and when you need them just add the sentiment at the time. That way you have a card for every occasion.
I don't know why I felt this card needed a little lace. Most girls that where Converse are not girly but I will have to disagree. I mean have you seen brides wear them under their gown? You can't beat a nice broken in pair of Converse. I had a purple pair that I loved as they had yellow shoe strings. I could wear them to the UNI (University of Northern Iowa) or to the Minnesota Vikings game. They were the best. But I finally had to get rid of them as the holes were too big and they were just too shameful looking. But after looking at this card I think I need a new pair of pink ones! Did you have a favorite pair? And if so what color were they?
