You're My Person

This is my second entry for this week's Mod Squad Challenge - CASE A CARD.  I am home today because of the predicted storm of the century in the northeastern US, which really did not amount to all that much.  We got about 6 inches instead of 24-36 or more, but a state of emergency was called for NJ last night, so everything was closed today.  I played in my craft room, made soup, made a pie... snow day types of activity. So fun.

I was looking for valentine inspiration, and THIS card by Amy O'Neill caught my eye.  Below is my CASE of Amy's card. It's perfect for my Person. You know who you are.

Thank you so much for coming by today.  I always appreciate the visit and your comments.

CASE A Card Congratulations

This week's challenge at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog is CASE A Card. CASE anyone you'd like. You may use any vendors and products to participate.

I have a friend whose mother-in-law recently became a US Citizen.  I wanted to make her a card in celebration. I got the idea to make a shaker card with red, blue and silver sequins and an all over red, white and blue color scheme.  When I was looking for inspiration, I found THIS card by Betsy Veldman. I CASE'd it and came up with the card below.

I am very happy with the end product. I am very happy for Carmen and honored to have her as a fellow countrywoman.

Big storm headed to the Northeastern part of the US.  Hoping to get more time to create in the next few days.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
