All Caught Up . . .

. . . for now! Probably in 10 seconds I'll be behind again on something, lol! I made life easy on myself by killing 3 challenges with 2 cards. The GreatSwapsGirls blog posts challenges weekly, and here I have done the last two featured swappers and the last color challenge. This first card was cased from FS Lisa Henke. She makes such cute stuff, and she is so nice too! I cannot wait to meet you in SLC, Lisa! Here is the card I cased: polka dots and birthdays. I actually have this card in my possession, so it was super easy to case! And here is my version: I kept the layout, but used dsp instead of stamping a background, changed the colors and stamps, but kept the ghost shape.

This next card is for FS Jimmi Mayo and the color challenge (kraft, celery, and coral). I found this card of Jimmi's to case: sassy window. Here is my version:
I kept it a window card, but eliminated the scallops and changed the stamps/punches/colors.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

I know how you feel about falling behind, I can get myself so stressed out about it internally, then I remind myself it is all for fun. I love these two cards. I love the changes you made! Super fun colors for my case and love the stars and circle combo on Jimmi's card.
