This is my card for Verve's September Diva Dare to CASE A Diva. I knew exactly who I wanted to case: fellow BC resident and blog buddy Maureen - waving wildly to you Moe :) We met at a Verve release party, started blogging about the same time and she has been a wonderful blog buddy for over two years now. Though we live in the same province (about 4 hours apart) we have never actually met. You see, she has a nasty habit of being out of town when I drive through her home town....wink, wink ;)
This summer, if I would have had the address of the new house they are building, I would have gone up there and nailed a "sorry I missed you" card to the framing in her craft room to let her know I was there and she wasn't in. Not to mention laying claim to being her first craft room "guest" LOL! But alas, I didn't think it through soon enough to pull it off -- darn -- as it would would have been waaaay too much fun to have done it :) Maybe next time I drive through....
Sorry, I digress....on to the card. I knew exactly which card I was going to case. It was this beauty she posted a few days ago.
I loved all the white space and the layout. I switched out the DP, replaced the flower with a butterfly, used Labels 15 for the top shape, and changed the sentiment. Such a fun card to make. Thanks for the inspiration, Moe (((hugs))).
