Case of Dreck

Paper Makeup Stamps had their October release on Wednesday night and all though I had some computer issues, I think there was a lot of chit-chatting fun going on!! Some really great prizes were awarded, and a couple of fun challenges were issued too!

Being the Newbie to the group, the gals at PMS decided to haze, I mean initiate me into the group by making me the subject of the 1st challenge!! Hee hee, I was actually very humbled and honored.

So, the first challenge was to CASE a card from my blog or SCS gallery and change at least two things. I actually think that's kind of funny considering sooo many of my cards are CASE'd as well :0)

So, since I always love a good challenge , I'm playing along too! Here's the card I chose to CASE. And here's my "re-creation" of it:

I actually stamped this image at the same time as the other one. It has just been sitting around in my pencil box waiting to be useful! I changed the colors, added some sponging and used a different shaped Nestie this time around. I used the same sentiment as the first card (I think it goes so well with this image) but made it more of a focal point with the tag and ribbon.

So you want to play along? Just upload a card to SCS using Keyword PMSRP16. There's sure to be a fabulous prize up for grabs!

On another note, my friend Tiffany told me about the Picasa 3 free download. It's a great simple photo editing software for the novice like me that doesn't have Photoshop! This is my first card using it. What do you think? I was able to create one of those cool watermark signatures like I've seen sooo many others do. Easy as Peasy pie!!
