CASE Study 4th Anniversary Blog Hop

(I’ve got two posts here today! Looking for my latest Thursday (aka: 6)  countdown post for My Favorite Things? Go here… or just scroll down. It’s the post right below this one.)


Hi all!

The fun folks over at the CASE Study Challenge blog are celebrating four big years of challenges with some inspirational blog hops over the next few weeks. I’m thrilled to be joining the crew for this week’s blog hop!

We were invited to find our own inspiration and make something inspired by it. I spotted this quote recently and just really liked it.




It really spoke to me so I decided to make a card inspired by it. Here’s what I did.


You’ll see the quote played center stage. I used a typewriter (with a really, really, really old ribbon) to type out “you make my heart smile” onto the grid paper. The “friend” word is a stamp from Lawn Fawn’s #awesome stamp set.

Pretty much everything else on the card was just added to kinda go with the feel of the quote.


So that’s what I have.

Be sure to check out the blogs of everyone who is hopping today.

  4. Teri, I love it. I will admit it – I have one heck of a time with collage design… you have done it beautifully. LOVE that typewritten sentiment… I’d almost forgotten the ribbons were two colored! There… now you know I’m OLD =]
