HIMCR #129 - CASE Yourself!

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!  

Here it is the 3rd Saturday of the month . . . 
and do you know what that means?  

Well for one, it means, we have only 4 days left till Christmas.  But it also means it is time for another AMAZING challenge at Hiding In My Craft Room.  And I am here to encourage all of you to put Christmas wrapping and get your crafty space cleared off so you can join us for this fun challenge. Remember, you have one week to submit your projects on HIMCR to be eligible for a Close to My Heart Stamp set from Carrie.  Hmmm, pretty nice prize . . . too bad I'm not eligible.  :)

Anyway, the theme this week is CASE Yourself! . . . meaning "Copy and Share Everything".  Basically, pick something you have done before and do it again by either revamping or redoing it, adding to it or just making it again because you really liked it and want another.

Well, for this challenge, I took a card that I did towards the beginning of November (click HERE to see original post) and have had on my crafty table since then because I just did not feel like it was "done" . . . that it still needed "something".  So when I saw what this week's challenge was going to be, I knew I had the PERFECT opportunity and project for it.  So Here's my card in it's "BEFORE" state:


Here's how it turned out after I changed or added a few things to it:


As you can see, the "BEFORE" card is okay . . . but the "AFTER" card is much, much better.  What I did make it better was adding the words "Peace", "Joy", "Love", & "Noel" from Get Inky! 2013 Holiday stamp set around my digi image along with the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from the same stamp set from Get Inky!.  I also used small red glitter gems from Close To My Heart by placing them to the top and bottom of my card and larger ones to each side.  And "Voila!" . . . I was finally happy with it.

Now it is your turn to "CASE" something and turn it in to HIMCR in the next week.  I can hardly wait to see what you do.

Have a VERY Merry Christmas!!!!

Till the next time I'm up in the Night.  Kathy
