Really, it's *not* another CASE 😉 I've been working on #the100dayproject again this year and I'm doing well so far, much better than I usually do! I'm sticking with what's easiest for me, cards, but I've never done one daily for an extended period, and I don't have that many original ideas, so I Copy And Share Everyone else's ideas a lot of the time. I found an idea I was going to copy for one of my new stamp and die sets, but I wanted to change the colors. I remembered seeing one I liked but couldn't remember where, so I was browsing through challenge sites - I found it at The Paper Players. Before I found it again, I found a sketch I really like at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge so I'll save the design I was going to CASE for another day.

I'm sorry about the title, but I just couldn't resist. The past two weeks Jingle Belles have been taking back December with cards that use dies, Christmas Crafts All Year 'Round are using the letters G and H for inspiration and Christmas is the theme at Addicted to Stamps and More!
stamp sets - A Wish for Everything, Banner Year; ink - Shaded Spruce, Soft Seafoam; card stock - Shaded Spruce, Soft Seafoam; stampin' cut dies - Word Wishes
I found some holly in a new-last-year stamp set and I've been trying to remember to use the word dies more often - I think they worked well to bring these three challenges together. I'm really pleased that I kept track of the little dot for my i long enough to get it glued on!

I wanted to try a cleaner card with the same stamp and die set I used last wekk for the Jingle Belles prompt (it ends today!). This time I combined it with the newest Mystery Monday layout from TXStampin Sharon Armstrong:
I changed the shape of the sentiment and didn't stamp the embellishment, but other than that I was faithful to the mystery clues, and I think it works.
While I was working, I remembered that Stampin' Up! released the retirement list today, so I checked it - the stamp set and all of the dies I used are retiring! If you're interested in adding them to your collection, they are only available until supplies are exhausted, or May 3 - get them now!

I've been keeping up with #The100DayProject this year, today is day 47. Some days I have to CASE cards because I don't have an idea and some days ideas pop into my head from the challenge blogs I read. This card was inspired by Shopping Our Stash #441 The Rainbow Connection (yes, that brings to mind a sweet little green frog!):
Years ago my parents and some friends owned a hot air balloon, and we traveled around a bit to balloon festivals. The rainbow balloons were always a favorite of mine.

The lovely Jingle Belles are looking for The Holly & The Ivy , or any other holiday foliage, this week, and I just happen to have some:
stamp set - Peaceful Boughs; ink - Shaded Spruce; card stock - Basic White regular and thick, Gold Foil, Shaded Spruce; Stampin' Emboss - Evergreen Forest; Stampin' Cut - Beautiful Boughs, Layered Ovals
I believe I may have gone just a bit overboard on the foliage, but less didn't look better to me. Hmmm, maybe just one bough? I may have to have another try...
