A Kind Word

Time for a new challenge at Time Out. This time we are CASEing the wonderful and talented Jenny Mullens of Crafting In The Country. Jenny is such an imaginative artist. I have often told her that I wish my mind's eye would see things the way hers does! I strongly suggest that  you take a stroll through her blog. You will see what I mean. I guarantee that you will be WOW'ed, inspired, amused, and so glad you went for a visit. Here is Jenny's card for us to CASE...

 Izzy of Izzyscrap is Guest Designer at Time Out for Challenge #79. Izzy is a regular player at TIME OUT and we are so delighted she is joining us as guest designer! Izzy's cards are always so artistic, yet CAS, and this time is no exception! Ceck out Izzy's card on the Time Out Challenge Blog.

Here is my take.

It's really quite a literal interpretation, but I loved Jenny's hanging birdhouses, and decided to do the same with these wonderful flowers from our sponsor Verve's New Beginnings Stamp Set. Spring is around the corner, though here in the northeastern US, we've gone from 70 degrees last week to a possible 12"+ snowstorm coming through this week!

Please head over to the Time Out Challenge Blog, see how the marvelous Design Team has been inspired by Jenny's card, and leave them some love. Then see how Jenny's card inspires you, link up and play with us at Time Out.

Fabulous CASE. I love the shiny leaves and what a great idea to substitute the flowers for the houses. Your colouring really is stunning x

Awww thanks Steph, you're so kind and made me blush! Gorgeous card, I love how you swapped out those birdhouses for flowers... that's some fine cutting skills to trim them out!! Sorry to hear about the snowstorm coming!!... still need to keep those winter woolies handy then ;)

What a fabulous take on Jenny's card, Stephanie ... the texture-y leaves on the branch are brilliant ... and those little hanging blooms are positively jewel-like ... gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)

I love how you made hanging flowers instead of birdhouses - genius idea! They are so pretty in those vibrant Spring colours :) I hope you survived the storm alright - I think you definitely got it a lot worse than we did :( Fingers crossed for a warm Spring!!!!
