Day 1: Inspired By Card Set (use up the patterned paper!)



I've been itching to use up some patterned paper and to make some card sets...and Sunday was the day I got inspired to get moving. So...starting today, I'll have a card set inspired by another blogger that uses up some of my patterned paper stash.  I'm selling patterned paper, details are here so that I can do a bit of shopping for some new paper!

So...my card set today was inspired by Maureen Merritt. If you haven't seen Maureen's work over here, go take a look. She is so talented and after I saw her work on CAS-ual Fridays a few times I had to start following her to see her cards each and every time!

For this card set I paired up the papers with four different PaperSmooches sentiments:  2 thank you, 2 sympathy, 2 get well and 2 just a notes.  A fun little Verve butterfly and we were off and running.

And here is the gorgeous inspiration card from Maureen...don't you love the tag that goes with this too!  I'm thinking this won't be the last time I CASE her :)
