Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop

We are hopping again and thinking of spring!  
As usual, our Blog Hop runs in a circular fashion.  No matter where in the list of participants you begin, inevitably you'll wind up in the exact same place again if you keep going to the "next" blog.  It works the same way whether you conform to the usual forward movement through the blog posts or if you're a rebel and work your way through in reverse order.

First up is our CASE a friend project. I drew Buffy Cooper and this is a card she made last year that feels like spring to me.

  1. Kath, these are wonderful projects. The resist worked so well for the World of Dreams card, yet would not have occurred to me. And I love the bright watercolor strip of flowers across the final card. lovely.

  2. Jackie, Thanks so much, our spring hop is such a happy one.

  3. When I saw the World of Dreams card I found myself going "ohhhh" Very pretty!

  4. Amazing projects, Kath! I love your 'case' card - those banners & flowers really do say 'spring' - I was expecting to see them flapping in a breeze :)

  5. Kath I always enjoy your projects and these ones are simply a delight. Great job of CASing Buffy's fun spring card. I really like the warm sunny tones and paper mix. I like your mix of dsp and emboss resist on your second card. I feel another CASE coming on. TFS!

  6. As always Miss Kath you bring color and joy to the hop. Very CASEable. The last project really hit my heart and soul. Love the circle cut out and the angles strip of DSP - perfect sentiment too! Simple and stunning. I love my Watercooler family of friends. And I'm glad you are one of them. I really do think I need this stamp set.
    Hugs and love - J.

  7. Fun CASE! Love the colored roses--did you dye them? You've done a great job bringing Spring into our homes...I really like your last card; that DSP is one of my favs! Great job!

  8. Thanks my friends! Priscilla I spritzed the flowers with re-inker mixed with alcohol.

  9. Hi Kath, what wonderful projects! I love your CASE of Buffy's lovely card. It keeps the integrity of Buffy's card but has a great style of its own. Love those spritzed roses and the combination of DSP and Washi tape. Your emboss resist World of Dreams card is breath-taking. Love the texture, use of DSP and the wonderful embossed image.

    What a great card to design from that sketch, Kath. I love its simplicity and frivolity. Thanks so much for being part of this Blog Hop.

  10. Thanks Heidi, I appreciate all you do for us.

  11. Well, that World of Dreams set is a definite for me now.
    Love your CASE. I love spritzing and your flowers are gorgeous.
    I love the saying on your last card. It is one of my favorites and it really makes that card.

  12. And, again, Kath, all I can say is, "Wow." These are all so beautiful. You card is much cuter than mine - the warm colors are gorgeous. And I love the World of Dreams resist and Painted Petals cards. So clever!

  13. Christine & Buffy, thanks for the kind words. Buffy you are an intimidating artist to CASE!

  14. Great work! Love those banners, super cute!

  15. All of your projects are lovely, Kath.
