CASE OF A CASE

What do you call it when someone CASEs you, you like their CASE even better than your original, and you CASE their CASE? Unless someone comments telling me an "official" term for this, for now I'm calling it a "CASEBACK". That is exactly what happened between Nancy Morgan and myself! I originally made THIS CARD, Nancy Morgan CASEd me with THIS CARD, I liked her version even better than my original, and I CASEd her back! The only differences between Nancy Morgan's CASE and my CASEBACK: a) I used silver brads, and Nancy used Pink Rhinestone Brads, b) ignore looking at my ribbon! (Nancy's is so much better!) ... I'm working on that!This is the card I provided as a Make 'n Take project at our very first weSTAMP Demonstrator Group meeting Tuesday night. My friend and SU Sideline, Lorri Heiling and I have combined our creative teams for monthly demonstrator support meetings and swaps. What a GREAT group of ladies we have in our group! We had a wonderful time, and I can't wait for our next get-together! Lorri came up with the name for our group which ties in with the name of my blog. I LOVE it!

Nancy!
This is so elegant looking! Love the rich feel of it!
I'm so envious of your stamping get togethers! Maybe if my upline had done this with all her downline, I'd be doing more business. I bet hit helps all of you become better demos!!

You'd probably figure this out, but my fingers often work faster than my brain...the above comment should read "wonderful series of creative adventures"...serious just doesn't make any sense at all

Love the original card, the case card and the caseback card.

Funny! I like your new term - CASEBACK. It must be the stamping synergy between stampers. The same thing happens when I am stamping with a friend. We feed off of each other and come up with a better project for it. Your collaborative efforts turned out beautiful!
