CASE'd My Own Card Again

Happy Friday, Everyone! It's been several days since I last posted. . . .gosh, time flies so quickly. Is it because I'm having fun or that I'm getting older? I wonder. . .does time fly faster when you're older? When I was in my 20s or even younger, I don't recall time flying this quickly. I'm sure I was having fun back then but I always remember wishing that Friday would come quicker. Now, I wish it was still Monday. Funny, how that works, huh!

Remember on my last post, I said that I CASE'd 2 cards because a customer wanted me to recreate cards I made and posted a long, long time ago! Like I said, I don't typically duplicate cards because usually I don't have a bulk of similar papers and embellishments. So In this case, I had to do a few modifications to my original card. My original card is the first card at the top.

This card to the right is the CASE'd card. As you can see, the paper and few of the embellishments are different but the basic layout and design is the same.

I couldn't find the stamp that I used for the first card so I had to use a different sentiment stamp. I dug through a pile of sentiment stamps and could not find the stamp that I used for my original card.

That's another reason why I don't like to duplicate my cards. . .many times, in order to create the same card, I have to dig through all my stuff to look for the original materials that I used. It's a pain in the you know what to do that so argggh! I'm not the most organized individual, therefore, it takes longer to recreate a card than it is to randomly make a card. If you know what I mean. . .

Anyway, I hope y'all have a fabulous Friday. I hope today will be a productive one! I haven't been very productive lately.
Until next time!!

Both cards are really very pretty Maria! Great job "CASing yourself"...I think CASing yourself is harder that CASing someone else! TFS:)
