Card Case Study

Good morning! I think I am going to hide indoors all day in the air conditioning. All of a sudden it's summer outside!  Fortunately, I knew it was coming and made a yummy cold pasta salad yesterday to tide me over until this heatwave passes.  There is no way I am turning on the stove or oven!

I am playing along for the very first time with the Case Study Challenge. I couldn't resist this week's inspiration card!  It's gorgeous! We are are CASE-ing the so very talented Kristii Lockart.  The moment I saw her card, ideas swirled through my head. I loved the colors: white, kraft, aqua, red.  I also kept the little scalloped edge, and a friend sentiment.  Though, I put mine on a little tag.  I used the heart from the the little birdhouse as my inspiration for the glossy heart I added to the fourth square.

Lots more stamping to do today! I've also been busy printing off a ton of centers and activities for the new school year. My new, sweet laminater is about to get a serious workout!  I'm also in the midst of a third project decorating some new clipboards for my classroom. Pictures soon to come. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
