CRAFTY GAL's - CASE-ing Jeanette


It's February 5th - time for the CRAFTY GAL's blog posting and this month the challenge was to CASE a card from Jeanette's blog Cre8tive Play: It's Cheaper than Therapy.  Now isn't that just a great name for a blog?  CASE-ing Jeanette isn't an easy thing to do because she is an AMAZING card maker and each one is so special and beautiful.  I started off thinking I was just CASE-ing one card but when I was done I realized that it didn't look anything like the one she did - my image was much smaller and the layout was different.  So then I moved things around again and decided I would just say this:  Instead of CASE-ing one card, I decided to do themes instead.  (Gee, doesn't that sound like I'm trying to pull off a snow job?  LOL!!  I confess, in a way I am because I don't have time to make another card...LOL!!).  One thing that Jeanette does that I have never really done is to mix shapes.  That's really where this all started.  I found a card on her blog where 2 different shapes were used and it so went out of my comfort zone so that's where I started.  For those of you on SCS, you will find Jeanette is known as "Forest Ranger".  She hosts a series of swaps regarding the "Forest" theme and once she did one about critters in the Forest....so my card is a critter.....(Gee, I'm really reaching here aren't I?  LOL!!).  Before it gets to be about 5 feet of snow here, I better stop my little snow job and just post my card.  Have a great day!  And Jeanette - I hope I did you justice.  :)
