A Fun Challenge Casing Amy

Today's challenge at Splitcoaststampers Free for All is to case one of your stamping friends.
Amy Sheffer was long (and still is) my stamping hero. It was so fun to meet her at CHA a couple of years ago and be roommates! She is so sweet and talented and I very blatantly copied her pinwheel card HERE.

I did stick to the "case rules" and changed a few things - my designer paper brand, an extra layer, and I added a little curled flag to the sentiment. I used some of my favorite Stella and Rose papers - Mabel Papers - for the background and pinwheel. Amy had a little corrugated flower behind her pinwheel buttons. I corrugated some Bronze Metallic CS and used my corrugator to make a button mat.  I haven't used a corrugator in years! It was fun! Dust yours off~

The Pinwheel die, Flag die, and sentiment stamp are all by Li'l Inkers Designs.
Pinwheels cheer me right up!

We had a lovely rain this last night and this morning. I absolutely LOVE morning rain showers. No wind, just nice steady rain, for about 30-45 minutes. My tomatoes and lettuce, and new redbud tree loved it! Tomorrow I will try to post some pictures of my container gardens. Just three containers, but it's enough for us!
