Wherever you go

Hi everyone! What an exciting day yesterday! The talented and very sweet Darnell over at Djkardkreations CASED one of my past cards and posted a whole story about it on her blog. Thanks Darnell, and if you haven't seen her work/blog hop on over and take a look here. If you are a new  new subscriber and/or follower, thank you as well!

OK, on to my card for today. I was a little intrigued by this weeks CAS-ual Friday's challenge.
The challenge was to create a  farewell card that is long and NOT a traditional A2 card.




So this is what I came up with. This ended up measuring 4 x 8.5 and will fit into a legal sized envelope.  Vintage cream cardstock used as the card base and the main panel. Stamps are from Flourishes. I stamped them in Versafine and then clear heat embossed them so that I could color with Copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

I came here from Darnell's blog yesterday and signed up to follow you. I love the card she CASEd and this one too. That sentiment is perfect.

Ah, thank you for the shout out in turn, Laurie! That was sweet of you!

Your card today is yet another one I will be adding to my to-CASE-someday folder. I love doing the long cards sometimes, they fit in standard legal envelopes, and they are fun to receive. This is so pretty with the blossoms and the sediment is a favorite of mine!! Hugs, Darnell
