Birthday CASEd cards

Did you get a chance to hop along for the May Arts Christmas hop?  So many amazing projects, hop along for your chance to win 4 spools of ribbon.  My project post is here.



Okay, I've got 2 more cards to share from my recent card order, I was asked for these two cards, so I decided to change up the colors a bit.  The first card I used ColourQ colors and left everything else the same.  I spend the last two days buried in laundry at the motel, but today between loads I spent some time reading and absorbing this heart wrenching piece on the New York Times about the avalanche in Washington earlier this year, the included my sister and brother-in-law.  They're both okay, but are interviewed in the piece, if you have an extra 20 minutes, the article is extremely well written and thorough.

Erin, thanks so much for posting the link to the articles. God bless your sister and brother in law. I can't even imagine how you handle surviving such a tragic event. I'm so thankful that they are okay. The article was very well written. You can feel their personalities through the article and although many didn't know each other their common love of skiing and in turn of each other comes through very strongly.

PS Love your cards as always.
