Hi everyone. Had a bit of time to play in my studio yesterday and today. Still really busy these days, spending time at the hospital with my DSIL ... and now my MIL is also in the hospital (different one). So it's been pretty hectic to say the least. The good thing about finding some time to play, is not only that I love making cards, but it's a bit of an escape from all the worries of late. When I'm making a card, I am concentrating so hard on the design, etc., that I forget about other things ... especially the time, so my hubby does have to come in a bring me back to reality once in a while or he'd never get his dinner :)
Today I have two cards for you ... both honoring two very talented card-makers that not only have their own blogs, but also post on SCS, which is where I "met" them.
The card above is to honor Diane (Charmingly Creative). Diane has a wonderful gallery and I chose this card to CASE in her honor. Not only is she super creative, but she leaves the most encouraging comments on my cards and this is my opportunity to thank her. So Diane, thank you and I hope you like the card I made in your honor!! I used the colors from this week's Color Throwdown challenge (see link below).

I'm entering this card into these challenges:
SCS Queen For the Day (QFTD149)
Color Throwdown (CTD226)
The second card is to honor Bonnie (Stamping with Klass). Bonnie has been chosen as the Featured Stamper at SCS (FS319 - bon2stamp) this week. I subscribe to Bonnie's blog and have learned so much from her over the past year. She has a wonderful style and several of her creations are CAS, which I love. Congrats Bonnie - enjoy your week!!
I chose this card of Bonnie's to CASE, just changing it from a Christmas card to Valentine's Day.
