Just in CASE you were wondering...

...what the heck does CASE mean? Well, in the stamping world, it means "Copy and Share Everything" (or in some "cases" LOL! "Copied and STOLE everything!). When you see a good idea and want to copy it, that's okay! In the spirit of full disclosure, though, it's best to tell people when you've Cased a card, and of course..NEVER submit it for publication. Yes, those are the rules.

Honestly, I'm not a CASE-er. I don't know why...I'm just not much for it, although I am in awe by so many designers out there and love their work. Although I REALLY enjoy sketches and challenges, I rarely copy anyone's card or sketch entirely. However, in the case of THIS card by my friend and fellow Little Paper Shop DT member, Bonnie....I just had to CASE her layout! I loved it so much that I've been wanting to make it for a while now and yesterday, I finally got the chance! I did change the papers, etc., but copied the layout exactly. Don't you want to, too? It's such an awesome layout!

Make sure to check out ALL of Bonnie's blog, The Lucky Clucker when you get a chance! I fell in love with the name as soon as I saw it and she's just as nice and generous as can be! Not only is the card I CASE'd a work of art, but all of her work is awesome! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend! Tomorrow I'll be back with a Bella card for a VERY special event! Stay Tuned! Hugs,
