CASEing Kelly Blog Hop



You should have arrived here from Ardyth. See at the bottom for your next stop along the hop.

Hello and welcome to this special Blog Hop a bunch of us are participating in for our crafty friend Kelly. If you don't know this awesome girl, you are missing out. She is such an inspiring and sweet crafter within our blogging community. Each week she hosts a special feature on her blog called CASEing Genius where she showcases a fellow crafter within the blogging world. She will take three cards of theirs and create a card based off of them. You can see a sample feature she did of my work here.

A bunch of us have decided to return the favor and CASE her. Below are the three cards of hers I chose and the reasons why. 


I love the little winter scene Kelly created on this card with the sloped snow landscape.


I can't say enough about this gorgeous sky background with the die cut stars.


And last but not least, how fabulous is this layout with a peek of purple and turquoise accenting the image as the focal point?

Below is my card I created based on the three cards above. 


Thank you Kelly for being such a fabulous person and crafter! You are AMAZING! 
See below for a list of participants and make sure to hop along because we have some prizes (for a few lucky people) from some amazing sponsors.
