discover...

Happy Sunday to you all on this dull and overcast day.
Bring on the sunshine!

To me, crafting is not about entering  challenges to win, 
it's about Discovering new techniques from other
crafters and finding joy in what I have achieved.
This is one of those cards, so easy and looks effective. 

My card is CASED  from this card designed by Karen .
If you would love to try this, case it and enter the challenge
at the bottom of the page, it would be great.
[Just click onto Karen's name above to take you to the page with details
on how to make this card]

Annie, your card is amazing. Love that technique. You are always trying and doing wonderful things on your cards. I'm doing good. Just spending time working on my house because I would like to sell it so LOTS of cleaning!!! Making lots of trips to the Goodwill center to make donations because I do not like to have garage sales.

oooh! beautiful choice of colors in your cased card, Annie! Very vibrant - almost reminding me of tropical ocean colors with the kelp-grass type seaweed. Or maybe it is because of your gorgeously flowing die cut. Your layers are exquisite! hugs, de
