The current CASE Study Challenge is to CASE yourself.  I loved the color combo on this card here...so I decided to CASE it using my new Verve goodies.  I love this sentiment...I think it could be used for a love card for your spouse or even as a sympathy card for someone who lost their spouse.  Love never dies even after the passing of a loved one.  I hope I use it for the first scenario, but think it is really fitting for both.

So...now onto a much lighter topic!  Last week we went with friends (yes...on the second day of school) to the Jason Mraz concert.  It was absolutely fabulous.  I love listening to music, but never know who sings the song.  Pat and Ryan on the other hand know all the lyrics and artists.  Jason Mraz is one of their absolute favorites so I did know almost all of the songs at the concert.  If you ever get a chance to see him in concert, I'd highly recommend it.  The number of instruments the bands plays throughout the night is incredible.

So here we are...first up the kids:  Cam, Maddie, Jonathon and Ryan.  They had all just bought their concert t-shirts.
Then the kids with the parents:  Jay, Tara plus us!
And we had a laugh about what we wore:  Pat and Jay both had on cargo shorts with blue button downs and Tara and I bough had on purple shirts with navy shorts.  Great minds think alike...right?!

Alright I LOVE your CASE card, it is so fabulous! I need to CASE you. How much fun is it that you went to see Jason Mraz, I love his music and his new album is amazing. I saw him years ago when he just launched The Remedy at an outdoor concert--fantastic!

Oh, that sentiment is just perfect... for either occasion, just like you said but in general, too! LOVE it and your beautiful card! Looks like a fun time at the concert, too! I'm not sure of the artist, but it's always fun to spend time with friends. Hugs!

Lynn, your card is beautiful. I'm so glad to hear that the concert was great. I actually thought of you guys that day and was a little jealous that I wasn't there too;)

Hahaha, that's funny that the adults dressed alike!! Looks like it was a lot of fun :) That sentiment is really special on the card. I hope you never have to use it for the loss of a spouse, but I agree, it would be the perfect sentiment for that. Love the cute chevrons on it, too!

Fab colour combo. Love your style. The flower embellishment is super. Need to get myself some leaf dies they finish it off well.
