CYCI#139-A Rainbow of Happiness

Hey there kids, and welcome to this week's Can You Case It challenge!! This week's challenge is a RAINBOW theme, and we all know I love color, so this was pretty easy for me. 


For starters, I used some of my favorite My Mind's Eye paper, but it's so old it's impossible to find and it gives me a sad. I think it's called Playdate, but I gotta be honest, this time I'm not getting up to look. I paired it with the Sweet Summer Sentiments  set from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, which I still adore.  My colors are all over the place, and of course I broke out all the usual fan fare for my embellishments.

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to go to the CYCI blog to check out all my amazing design team members work, and maybe play along. It's a great challenge, and we love it when you do join us!!

Until next time, 
Be Excellent To Each Other!!

CYCI#137-Colorful Rise&Shine

Hey there loves, it's time for another Can You Case It Challenge! This week's challenge is a fun color challenge....a fun one that found me at google trying to figure out just what exactly Chartreuse REALLY was....cause come on now, I'm from the country.


I used my Rise & Shine set from The Cat's Pajamas....cause it's amazing. I paired it with some cardstock from Bazzill that I thought could pass for the challenge colors, and while they are brighter than the graphic, well, that's how I roll. 


Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my work! I hope you have had a great weekend, and I hope to see you playing along!

 Til tomorrow, be excellent to each other.

Winner will be announced on Friday, September 16th!


For my card today, I used the GORGEOUS "Let It Be" set. My butterflies were colored with Copics, then cut out and placed on my panel of dp from a Simple Stories Sunshine and Happiness. I used all my normal goodies, minus the spiral clips...so there's brads, buttons, twine, and ruffled gingham ribbon. To add some interest to my butterflies, I added some dots...I don't remember what they are called, but they used to be super popular back in the day and I'm a hoarder apparently, so I still have a ton. (Ok, I couldn't sit there any longer and not know what these stupid dots were called...they are dew drops from the Robin's Nest, geez)

Be sure to check out what my lovely teammates have made for the hop today, and comment to win!!!


Jessie-that's me!






My card is also in the CRAZY 4 CHALLENGES challenge this week, to include at least 10 things on your cared....when do I not do that, lolol! Sigh.

CYCI#136-Brains Sketch

Hey there party people, welcome back for another Can You Case It? challenge!! 

This week we have a FANTASTICAL sketch for you to play with, so I can't WAIT to see what you all come up with for this week's challenge!


Me, I decided to play with some more Halloween stamps! This week, I have used the SUPER cute BRAIIIINS set from The Cat's Pajamas! I used some yummy Pebbles BOO paper, which I paired with MFT Orange Fizz, Sour Apple, Grape Jelly, and Black Licorice cardstock. For my spiderweb, I used a Die-Namics from MFT, and then decorated my card with buttons from MFT, some black mesh ribbon, a cute clothespin I found at Wal-mart, and GOOOOOOOGLIE EYES!!!

I know you know, but if you're new here, I'm obsessed with googlie eyes at Halloween. They make me GIDDY!

CYCI#135-Back to School Smarty Pants

Hey there party people, and welcome to this week's Can You Case It? Challenge! This week's theme has been on EVERYONE'S minds....it's BACK TO SCHOOL!!

That's right, as our kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, coaches, administrations, and beloved teachers head back to school, we here at Can You Case It? are making cards and projects saluting YOU!



I decided to use the SUPER CUTE Back To School Ellie set from The Paper Nest Dolls. I paired her with some My Mind's Eye School Daze paper from long ago. I'm not going to lie y'all, I have a hoard of paper that rivals probably anyone. It's terrible. So much paper. I colored my ellie in some bright, fun colors to match the crayon scribbles, and added some buttons and ribbons to add some fun. Yes, I know, I button and ribbon the heck out of everything...it's my style, it's my thing. I like, I love it, I can't get enough of it. Sorry, not sorry.

So, have you been playing along with the Can You Case It challenges? If not, we would love to have you!!
