Welcome to From the Heart Stamps April blog hop! If you have arrived from KELLY’S BLOG, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps Blog, so you don’t miss anything.

We had so much fun last time we did a CASE it challenge, we decided to do it again…we have been challenged to CASE (copy and share everything) each other!! I have been tasked to CASE a card from my oh so talented teammate – Michelle. I chose to CASE THIS card.

I love the CAS take on this card. I love white space but am so bad with doing it so I decided to go for it and follow Michelle’s card closely.

I hope you like today’s card using Aloha Girl (Faithful Friends)

I used some Washi tape for the stripes (Score one for me – I used some stash!) then I went through my pre-printed images and found this sweet heart really needing to be colored (score two!) THEN I remembered a stamp set with layered shells that I “had to have” but have never used. I though that a shell where Michelle had a heart would be cute, I created the shell and fussy cut it out and popped it up with foam felt (score three – I feel like I won on this one!) I hope you like it!

As you hop along, leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be picked from each blog and on the FTHS blog to win an image of their choice from the FTHS store.

We are also having a link up contest with this hop. We invite you to pick one of the FTHS DT members and “CASE” one of their cards and add it to linky collection, by Sunday May 7th. Everyone who enters will be entered into a random drawing. One lucky winner will win three images of choice from the store!
