Doubling Up

I am so happy to have been able to case the Featured Stamper on SCS this week - it is my very dear friend pam124 (and everyone else's very dear friend)  I am so thrilled for Pam and as many of you would know her exceptional cardmaking is only excelled by that gorgeous big heart of hers - Pam is one of the 'darlings' of SCS and I am so blessed to be able to call her friend.  I have chosen this card of Pam's to case - it was a hard choice as they are all fabulous and I am blessed to have a few of them in my 'hot little hands.'  When I sent Pam an email congratulating her, she threw in an extra challenge for me and said she would love to see me case one of hers in my vintage style - well Pam, I have done my best....

How can you not love this image - mine was sent to me by my dear Sistah Pat Smethers and he is just so cute.  I didn't change anything much on Pam's card, just coloured him with different colours, distressed and sponged the edges and did not use the blue CS...oh and used a different sentiment and different ribbon as I did not have the one Pam had used.  Intsead on Pam's signature 'pearls' I used a square jewel for the centre of the snowflake and added Kindy Glitz to it!

As you can see I see Dazzling Diamonds on this little guy - just like Pam  did!!  The sentiment is popped up on dimensionals....so there you have it, a few small changes and you have one 'vintage' case of Pam's gorgeous card - Pam I hope you like this my friend - it will be coming your way!

Now...this is also my Twisted Sister Challenge card for this week, where CarrollAnn had challenged us to only use scissors - no punches - I was feeling pretty smug until I started posting this and then I realised I have used a punch snowflake - now I am hoping that the fact that it was part of a RAK and I didn't actually punch it gets me through - I am sorry girls - there is a reason I have to sit at the back of the Ol' Bus - I break rulz - sigh!!    Everything has been cut with scissors and I even distressed the edges using my scissors...it was fun...and distressing covers a multiple of  'sins' LOL!

I am also adding this to the Our Creative Corner Challenge for this week where the theme is 'Let it Snow'; and
The Something Sweet Challenge #5 where the theme is 'punch it' I am only just in there with this one but the snowflake is punched....phew!! LOL!

Thank you for coming and having a look and for your comments - you know I love seeing that you have been and would hate to have missed you!  It is Saturday morning here and a gorgeous day - I hope your weekend is a happy and blessed one!!  I am posting early as we are going to be wrapping gifts this afternoon and no doubt I will have a few tags to make as I have made NONE!!  Shock: horror !!  God bless you!!
