CASEing RENEE

Today, I came across THIS CARD (third project in post) by Renee at Stamping for Sanity. I fell in love with the main image and knew I just had to CASE it! I don't think I've ever seen this soon-to-be-retired stamp set, Heartfelt Thanks, stamped in these bright, cheerful colors. This sentiment is from the stamp set, Hugs & Wishes. It will also be retiring on June 30, 2009.

I've been asked frequently if I'll be attending Stampin' Up! Convention this year. Again, and unfortunately, the answer is "no". I'd soooo love to be there but financial limitations keep me from attending.
RECIPE
Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks, Hugs & Wishes
Paper: Sweet Always DP, Summer Picnic DP (retired), Pink Passion, and Whisper White CS
Ink: Basic Black Staz-On, Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie, and Close To Cocoa
Embellishments: Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, White Brads (non-SU)
Tools: Scallop Border Punch
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

Wow, Nancy, fabulous card! Thanks for casing and letting me know!!

I'd love to go to convention too, but for the same reasons as you, I'm unable to ... perhaps next year!

AAAHhhhhhhh a Nancy post! ;) WELCOME back from the most busy year of your LIFE! BEAUTIFUL card, Heartfelt Thanks will always have a special place in my HEART because it was in my starter kit! LOVE your card, and you're right, I've never seen it in BRIGHT colors! Beautiful!

Wow! This makes me want to dig out both of these sets. Love the colors and layout. I think Heartfelt Thanks was in my starter kit, too.

These colors are so bright and vibrant - and I LOVE those flowers stamped with them! Love your choices of DP and layout as well. Just beautiful, Nancy. Congrats, too on all your happy life events.

Wow, this is a beauty! Love how you stamped the flowers multiple times, love the layout, LOVE the colors! This is just gorgeous!

Beautiful card, Nancy!!! I've done it in orange before, but never bunches of bright, pretty flowers like Renee and you. I loved her cards and now yours too. Great job!!

As for convention, I can't go because my husband is deployed and no one would like to manage my 3 hooligans for almost a week, so I'll be missing out on it with you!!! :(
