Case Study 4th Anniversary and Cristina Kowalczyk

Love that Case Study is featuring past design team members during the Anniversary celebration ...I'm so happy to, once again, be dazzled by Cristina's brilliance - aren't you?  Here is her card for this week:


She makes a great point when asking:  "...why don't we use the backs of cards more?"  I did have that darling little bicycle stamp, but I've been thinking of a dear friend from my years of living in New York.  Dolores is still one of my dearest friends even though she now lives in N. Carolina and I'm in Michigan.  We often laugh and say "the neighborhood has gone to hell without us!" which is the inside sentiment for my card.

For my take on Cristina's fabulous card, and Case Study Week 3:

There is a little hidden message included... see if you can find it!
Heidi Grace, and SSS stamps, colored a bit.
