Crafty Gals CASE

On the 5th of each month, the Crafty Gals (a blog group I'm in) have a challenge. It's always a lot of fun! This month proves to be no exception to that.

Our Challenge Theme

Guess Who I'm CASEing?!
Go back to the month of March on one of the Crafty Gals blogs. (you can get there by finding their dated blog archive in their sidebar)

It doesn't matter whom you choose. That is totally up to you. That's the fun of us guessing right?!

Find a project from the month of March on their blog and CASE it. Don't list who you visited on your Dec. 5th blog post. We have to guess. This will also be kind of like a scavenger hunt. We'll want to go look at the original "artwork" you CASED so we'll be visiting March blog posts of our GALS!!!!


Soooooooooo I went and looked at the March blog posts of all the gals and worked at choosing JUST ONE to case (not one gal, but one card!). EEK!!! That was so difficult because I found inspiration on each and every blog. I finally narrowed down my choices - to a mere 8! Yes, I said EIGHT!!! Then I printed out the pictures of those 8 and just waited a bit to decide on just one of them.

Now, we're not supposed to share WHO we CASE'd (the Crafty Gals are supposed to try to guess who it is), so as much as I'd like to, I'm not going to break the rule. Instead I'm going to show you some pictures of my card.




I used an actual library card on this card. My friend Roxane, who works at  library, gave me a WONDERFUL assortment of discarded library cards and I just love using them! THANK YOU, Roxane!








Here's the inside:



Yes, that's another actual library card!


Now... to help you in your search, should you try to discover which Crafty Gal I CASE'd, here are some links to their March posts on their blogs. Let's see if you can figure out WHO it is. ;)



Did you figure out who I CASE'd???

Jeanette, this is so cute! I would say that the girl in this image looks like me when I'm lost in a good book, but the truth is she has MUCH skinnier legs than I do! LOL!
