SISC80~The CASE of the CASE'ing... crafter

Sad news today so Beth has a few words:

Happy Thursday! Wow – 80 challenges. That's a milestone! I'm so proud of all the beautiful Groovy Gurlz and the beyond-words incredible work they've produced for your inspiration over the last two years. There are just no words. That makes the Big Announcement that much bigger – and more heartbreaking. This will mark the final StampInsanity Stamps Challenge. After a long, looong, decision process, I've decided it is what is best – there is not enough time in a day, and I am sure you can all relate on some level! I cannot thank you enough for your support, your awesome submissions that you've shared with us and the lovely comments and compliments you've showered over us. I think I speak for the Gurlz when I say your kind words mean everything! So form all of us, a big groovy Thank You. Surely you'll see each of us around the blogosphere individually, and we can't wait!

Phew… all that aside, we have a challenge for you this week! I LOVE this challenge – do you know what a CASE is? There are variations, but the one I like is Copy And Steal EVERYthing! of course, that's a misnomer, because one should ALWAYS give credit to the inspiring artist! Some say Copy & SHARE Everything. Pick your poison. Be sure to visit the Gurlz' blogs for details on their inspiration ~ remember, each project was inspired by some other genius!

Wendy was my inspiration..she is a past dt member...this is her card:

My card:

I found such an awesome card from a past dt member and followed along with that card and this is what i came up with....i used a stampinsanity image she is holiday princess...amazing and beautiful isnt she...colored her with my sharpies...added some embellishment dots and tied some pink ribbon through the card...my papers are from the timeless collection of teresa collins

i'm so going to miss the stampinsanity design team..i hope everyone stays in contact...i had such an amazing time here

so i hope you head over and join in one last time at the stampinsanity blog....
