The CASE Study 1st Anniversary Blog Hop!

 

anniversarybloghop

 

Hello and happy Thursday everyone~

Today’s post is very special… CASE Study Challenge blog is just turned one year old!! I don’t know if anyone remember but I was asked to be their first CASE Muse! About one year ago, Iwona contacted me if I was interested in participating her new blog challenge for a month. Since then, the CASE study team has been working hard every Thursday to inspire us. I’m so thrilled to celebrate their 1st anniversary Blog Hop with them!

Those of you arriving from Lenet’s blog, you’re successfully arrived the next stop! If you’re not or you’d like to start the blog hop, stop by CASE Study Challenge blog. You can find the whole blog line up there. The DT members are also giving away some blog candies along the way!! Hope you will join in this fun event with us!

 

 

OK, after the long thinking time, I decided to case the card below, created by Teneale Williams.

Here is the direct link of her post for the card.

This is my card.

I used Buckets of Love and Holiday Galore from There She Goes. I cased the layout, number on the bottom and the border. I changed the theme for wedding anniversary, the color combo and the embellishments using butterflies & rhinestones.

I decorated the inside as well, just like her card ;)

 

 

I made the card for my in laws. Their ruby (40th) anniversary is coming exactly in a month, on Sep 4th. They are going through a hard time since my father was diagnosed leukemia about a month ago. A great news is all prayers have been working so far and their marriage is strong enough to climb any mountains after 40 years!
