Stampin' Up! Demonstrator
Welcome to #CaseingTuesday182! Today's card is very special because it's a birthday card for my nephew, who is turning 6 years old this week. I spent 9 glorious days with him and his sister this Christmas and I really wish I was there to celebrate his birthday with him.
I had to scour my shelves for just the write stamp set for him. I originally thought I'd use the Occasions Amazing Life Stamp Set with the cute little Birthday Cake, along with the adorable Gummy Bear paper from the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper stack. But that didn't feel right t me. He's still at that stage where cute and adorable touch his heart, so I grabbed my Hedgehugs Stamp Set from the annual catalog and that worked perfectly!

I'm in the Halloween spirit this week! The Toil & Trouble Paper has the perfect background, too, to CASE, or recreate this CASE-ing Tuesday Card.
My niece and nephew discovered Harry Potter last spring. They are fully immersed in the wizarding world of Hogwarts, so much so, that they begged their mommy to make their homeschool into Hogwarts! My niece had a Harry Potter themed birthday party a few weeks ago, and everyone got in on the act. Spells were cast, wizardly treats devoured, dragon eggs hatched, and the American Girl doll now has a full Hogwarts uniform in her repertoire.
It was only fitting that the card I made today, captured that wizarding spirit. Now...to go find a stamp because relying on owls to deliver mail to San Diego is a bit iffy.

It's CASE-ing Tuesday! My friend, Brenda Quintana, hosts a weekly challenge where we CASE (copy and share everything) a card from the catalog. This week, the challenge was to CASE this very cute card from the 2017 Holiday Catalog, which features theChristmas in the Making stamp set.
Brenda's challenge is to recreate the card, changing as much or as little as you like, and the post a picture in the Facebook Group. When I saw the design, I immediately thought of the Moon Baby stamp set. So, at 6:30 this morning, I was up in my studio, designing a card for this CASE-ing challenge. It was a great opportunity, too, to use my new Stampin' Blends Markers! Now, to see if I know someone with a baby girl on the way!
November is such a busy month! Between Stamp Camp, my birthday, my mother's birthday, and Thanksgiving, there's also a trip to Salt Lake City for OnStage and Boston to teach at Selene's retreat.
