Hello fellow stampers or scrappers, ( this post is rather long but worth reading)
Over at the Casual Fridays they asked us to Create a CAS card that has one long side and one short side. For example a 3 x 6, 4 x 8, etc. Not a standard A2 card. I have been wanting to do this size for a while now! My card actually measures out to be a 2 3/4 x 5 1/2…but I think it will do! I am also going to head on over to the Friday Mashup and enter this in their challenge to incorporate brads on your card! The stamps I used are from Verve…Love them!
I have a wonderful person in this fabulous world of card making that I absolutely am blown away by…not only is she the most talented designer I have ever seen, she is a genuine beautiful person inside and out. Although, I have never met her or even spoken to her outside this wonderful venue of the internet….I can honestly say that I am certain that I am correct in this statement, by the way she puts text to her thoughts and the way she speaks of her family and to her friends and admirers. I feel very blessed to have been following her talents, troubles and triumphs for almost 3 years now. Why am I saying all of this? Well, it is my admiration of her spectacular work that I someday hope to grow up and be as talented as she is! (lol) She is my inspiration behind my card for today and I have posted hers along with mine. Mind you, this is a very basic card and the word basic should not be in the same sentence with Laurie Schmidlin….. but, I had to start with a simple card and work my way up! Please if you have never stumbled upon her blog before, go and have a look, you will be as blown away as I am. She also is on the Design Team over at Stamp TV and you can check her out there as well!
My take on it!
