I have been CASEd by Kelly Latevola of You & Your Big Dreams!!

CASEing Genius Banner

I am afraid that EXCITED does not even begin to express my emotions – I feel so honored to have garnered her attention and to have her interest in CASEing me this way!! SO fun and I am just so thrilled AND humbled and grateful!!!

Kelly is a remarkable lady who creates magic with colors and paper – I admire her ability to transform the ordinary with bursts of fabulous, bright and vivid hues of the rainbow and her one of a kind, excellent card design and styling!!

But this is not all, I have found Kelly to be one of the nicest, sweetest bloggers out there!! I mean, just look at how she focuses on the talents of others once a week when she does this feature!! And, I always laugh and smile so big, while reading her blog – she tells it like it is and with such humor!!

Thank You, Kelly, for the privilege of knowing you, admiring you, and being CASEd by you!!!!

I thought while you were here I would share a card I CASEd from Pinterest –

You can find the card that inspired me HERE

And here is my version in several different colors —

peachsmilesig purplesmilesig coralsmilesig yellowbluesmilesig blueyellowsmilesig

I used Bohemian Garden from Ellen Hutson to stamp the flower on Tim Holtz watercolor paper! I used a Versamark Inkpad and embossed it in gold!

Colored them in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and a Zig Detailer Watercolor brush – fussy cut them out and added them to my cards! Along with pieces of vellum!

The Smile diecut is from Little Yellow Bicycle and purchased at Hobby Lobby!  I cut them out of colors that were similar to the flowers and then added glossy accents to them!! Finally I used a mini stapler to help the words stay put!!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU for coming by – If you are new to my blog – WELCOME!!!

I love having you visit!

I am so glad you came by – hope you are having a BEAUTIFUL day!!!

You know what would make MY day more BEAUTIFUL would be to have you  follow my blog via email or bloglovin’ AND IT would put a HUGE SMILE on my face if you joined my Happy Mail group (info in the tab up at top of my blog by my Home page tab)- I love sending out surprises and cards to people in my group!! And I do a Giveaway Once a Month for my readers!!

Anyways give it some thought – I’l love to have you!!

    Congrats, Taunya! Great interview – it was so nice getting to know a little bit more about you. Who knew that you and I BOTH had brown thumbs. Although I do have three office plants that I’ve somehow managed to keep alive. They are named Fred, Rodney, and Evelynn. And I love your collection of CASEd cards – so cute!

    Congratulations, Taunya! That is a wonderful honour! I just popped over and read your interview and looked at your beautiful cards! I hate gardening too! It’s the bugs I don’t like – and I hate getting my hands dirty! Ink is okay but not soil! I love your CASE’d cards here – love this design and I can see why you made whole set! I might have to CASE them too LOL! Great job!

I left a comment at ‘her’ place, and have madly dashed here to share with you what I wrote: I absolutely adore Taunya, who is one of the sweetest, most generous, most darling blog-buddies anyone could ever have! Her comments are warm and enthusiastic; she always has something – often several somethings – positive and encouraging to share. She’s a fan of…well, everybody! Thank you for putting her in the spotlight; her talents are remarkable and inspiring; her personality effervescent and uplifting! Your card is a gorgeous case of Taunya’s…a whole lot of smiling happening all over my face in seeing this interview and showcase!
