C.A.S.E. Blog Hop

Remember the old kids game, Telephone? You know the one where a secret is told to the first person in line and then they tell what they think they heard to the next person and they tell the next person and so on and so on.  At the end of the line, the person says what they heard and the first person tells what they originally said and laughter erupts because the two things are nothing alike. 

Well today's hop plays that game, but with card making instead of secrets.

This hop is un-like any you've probably ever been too. 

We took one card created by Theresa from ScrapsByGracie and sent it to the next blogger who then C.A.S.E.d the card (copy and steal everything) and sent her card on to the next blogger who C.A.S.E.d it and sent her card to the next blogger.  You get the idea. 

When you are done hopping you'll see how different or maybe how similar the last card is to the first.

So let's get hopping.
You should have arrived here from Sandy Bell Hentzel's blog. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop click on the blog logo above to be taken to Theresa's blog.

This is my very FIRST blog hop!!! I am so excited!!! 
Everyone else is a pro at this so I worried that I wouldn't measure up when it came to creativity. Theresa assures me that I did just fine for my first hop. I sure hope everyone enjoys my card.  

This photo is Sandy Bell Hentzel's card, and my inspiration.
No matter how hard I tried I juts couldn't get my embossed paper to look as nice as Sandy did, and there was NO way I would be able to stamp anything that nice (I have a love hate relationship with stamps) so I CASE'd the border and went with bumble bees instead of butterflies and used a pen on the embossing for color. After that it was Cricut all the way.
I love this little gate and decided to make it a peek a boo front. 

Open the gate and find the sentiment !

And because I wanted a little fun I put a big bee on 
an action wobble! First time I ever used those too! 
The bees on the front and inside of the card were created using
Cricut Explore's new "Print to Cut" feature.  
This card went in the mail today to my 
sweet brother in law who is fighting a battle with cancer. 
So please pray for him! 

I appreciate you taking time to stop by!!
