Casing Theresa Momber.......and there's more


Theresa Momber is the featured stamper on SCS this week so Vicki who is hosting the sketch challenge over on STV thought it would be good if we filled the STV gallery with cards CASING Theresa's too.

My only problem with this is that Theresa is the Queen of sponging.......and I absolutely suck at sponging. Ah well, I checked out her gallery and chose a card that I thought didn't have too much of the S word. Here's Theresa's Happy Spring: (I've kept it small to give mine a chance lol).

Beautiful.......yes.


For my card I chose an image from GKD Spring Florals, coloured with Copic markers.
All the sponging was done using Memento New Sprout. The matting is black with all shapes cut using Spellbinder dies. I used a Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls embossing folder for the sponged white panel. The Base card is GKD Lovely Lavender and my ribbon is green organza.

What do you think?have I got the CASING thing right? is it different enough?... hope so!!

I tried really hard with my sponging and this time I'm reasonably happy with it.

OK I can hardly contain myself......there's more...... is this:


My little Sassy Cheryl 'Distressed' card from Sunday's post just scraped into the top 3!!!!!!!
OMG .... imagine my card up there with one from Lisa Cook and Julie Glasgow.......I'm just plain tickled pink!!!!! Think I better go lie down.....too much excitement. Thank you all, over at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog.

Till next time..............
