For today's card, I searched my shelf for the perfect sentiment. I was feeling a little blue - maybe Balmy Blue! - and was looking for something uplifting. This verse from Isaiah is one of my favorites and I knew it was just what I was looking for.
And I love the Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies for creating frames. No measurements required! These nested dies are perfect for showcasing images and sentiments alike. And they create easy layers without a lot of thought involved.
Just a quick reminder...any $25 order now through Sunday will receive a free Needlepoint Nook 4-card tutorial. Add another $25 and you'll qualify for your favorite Level 1 Sale-a-Bration item!

I made this card using the Humming Along Stamp Set and Blends Markers for one of the most important people in my life. I can't tell you who it is, because I've yet to give it to her. But, it was a true labor of love since every square inch of the card has been colored by hand. It's true! The flowers and leaves were stamped on a Whisper White Notecard in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then painstakingly colored by hand - even the background! There's a saying you know when a paper crafter loves you because they use their best paper. Well, sometimes you know they love you because of the time and effort it took to craft something beautiful.
Did you hear the news? The Sale-a-Bration Organza Ribbon Combo Pack is back in stock! The only thing is, I don't know for how long. It's still free with a $50 purchase, but I'd grab a pack now, before it's gone for good!

I know I'm supposed to be resting! I really am trying. but I need to let you know of not 1, but 2 awesome Sale-a-Bration announcements.
First, there are brand new items just added to the $50 rewards, including the gorgeous Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper.
Next, is a brand new release of Sale-a-Bration Coordination products. These products coordinate perfectly with the Lasting Lilly, So Hoppy, Hello Cupcake, and Painted Seasons Stamp Sets. And the "Because Adulting is Hard" stamp in the More than Words Stamp Set is worth it's weight in gold!
You can find all these products on my store. But don't wait...supplies are limited.
Now for some good and bad news...
Due to having had the flu all week, I have decided not to do a Crafty Saturday tomorrow. That's right, I'm actually taking the day off. So...I'll be running a special from March 1-March 10. Any order of $25 or more will receive a free Needlepoint Nook Tutorial. Simply use the March Host Code: C4CYEDDB and I'll email you the tutorial right away.

Last Day to Register!
Welcome to CASE-ing Tuesday. I know I used this stamp set and these colors on yesterday's card , but to be honest, I made this card first! I was so in love with the colors, I had to do a second one, same color scheme, and same Painted Seasons Stamp Set. I think it fit today's sketch quite, well, don't you?
The Painted Season Stamp Set is available only in a bundle, and is FREE, but only during Sale-a-Bration!
Want to play along with the CASE-ing Tuesday group?
Use the sketch to plan out your card. You can change a lot, a little, or make the card just as it is in the catalog. Then post it to the Facebook thread. We can’t wait to see your cards. You can use the following hashtag if you post your card elsewhere on Facebook #CASEingtuesday188.
