CASE Study Challenge 41 and some FABULOUS NEWS! :)

Hi friends! I'm so sorry the blog has been quiet. We have guests over from the Philippines so it's been busy around here. I was planning on joining the PTI blog hop but we got home at 10:45pm from dinner and dessert. I really should make it a point to make cards for these wonderful hops waaaay earlier. lol!

But anyway, I have a card for everyone tonight and some wonderful, wonderful news! I'm a new DT member for WPlus9 Design Studio!!! The announcement was made here. Yay! I couldn't believe it when Dawn asked me. I was Are you sure? lol! And what's even better, is that my friend from CASE Study Challenge, Cristina Kowalczyk is going to be part of the team as well!!! Yay! :) I also want to thank my friend Christina MacLaren for introducing me to the wonderful stamps of WPlus9. We started blogging almost at the same time. And as our "styles" developed, we've managed to enable each other so many times it's funny. lol! :) 

Well then, shall we get on with the show? :) This is Sarah's last week as May's Muse. Make sure to drop by her blog and leave her some love! She's been a wonderful, wonderful muse! And as I've been gushing on and on about it this month, one of the BEST inspirations for me since I started on my path towards the Shabby Chic style. Here's Sarah's card for CASE Study Challenge 41.

This is absolutely beautiful! I love her style of inking the edges of her papers white. And I love all the layering and different textures she always uses. She's such a talented lady. :) Here's my take on her card.

I was browsing through a magazine and saw this color combination on one the ads. I love blue, light brown and kraft together! It's just soooo relaxing! I used some My Mind's Eye patterned papers for this card. I hand drew the shape, cut it and sewed it onto the other patterned paper. I also stamped the beautiful little butterfly girl from The Craft's Meow, Butterfly Kisses on the lower portion of the light blue patterned paper. It's one of my favorite stamps from TCM. :) The label stamp is from Waltzingmouse, Very Vintage Labels No. 5, and the sentiment is Signature Greetings from Papertrey Ink. I hope you like it! I'll see you over at the challenge blog ok! 

Don't forget to check out the fabulous ladies on the design team. They've prepared a wonderful feast for the eyes! Here they are!
