Casadia - Here for You

I have something really fun to share with you today!

Have you been following Wida Miller's CASADIA?  
I've been following for quite a while now, and this is one of the best ideas I've seen, and such fun!
What is Casadia, you ask?  
It is a card chain!  Sort of like when we used to play 'telephone'.  
The 1st person in this chain was Laura Bassen, (who had no idea what she'd started!)

who was CASEd by Jennifer Rzasa
who was then cased by Wida Miller, who then invited all of us to join in the fun!

And here is the most recent card, by Suzanne Dahlberg, which I was invited to CASE. 

(If you want to Pin any of these cards, please go to each designer's blog, and pin from there!)

To see all of the cards in the chain, pop over to Wida's Casadia Page!

Now, a little about MY card!
This was a great card for me to CASE!  A pretty tough act to follow, but OMG - Case-Heaven!
Suzanne had me at Kraft!  And Kraft with dots? Be still my heart!
The next thing to make me smile was the soft pink ribbon and lacy doily.  I am a card angel for folks undergoing chemotherapy, and I immediately thought of the Amuse Breast Cancer stamp set that I got last October.  That's how this card evolved.
Amuse "Fight Like a Girl" Stamps, Color Box Chalk Inks, Amuse and misc. ribbon scraps, flower from my stash, Baker's Twine: Really Reasonable Ribbon, Kraft CS, Bazzill CS, Perfect Layers Rulers 1/16" and 1/8".

I hope that you will go check out all of the fabulous cards in the chain.  And if you are interested in being a part of CASADIA, contact Wida Miller, and get on the list!

Have a great day,
Patti J.

Fabulous card, Patti! Love the flower, the doily, the ribbons and the stamp! Someone will have a brighter day when they receive it!

Wow, Patti! What a super fun idea the Casadia is! I ADORE your card and am going to have to pin it for inspiration!

Glittered Paws said...

Wow = this turned out amazing - now I at least have a great idea for how to use the free set we got from AMuse - love the pinks and more pink with Kraft and more Kraft - and doilys are so in = great card and I am so happy you used this set.

Beautiful card! I have never heard of a card chain, sounds like fun.

Jennifer Rzasa said...

I love your interpretation of Suzanne's card!

Monika/Buzsy said...

Oh, I like how this turned out! Love the pink and kraft together, and the white stamping. The doily is the perfect touch (I've been working on a sketch card and did the same!).

Wida said...

I love how feminine CASADIA has gotten! so much lovliness here from the flower to the doily, to that ribbon stamp underlining the sentiment! It is chalk full of loveliness! Thank you for playing with my silly little idea and indulging a fellow crafter with your participation and talent!!

Laura B. said...

Suzanne said...

Hi Patti! What an awesome CASE of my card - you make me smile! I love how you layered all those banner ribbons from the top - and the A Muse stamps are perfect! Bravo!!!!

I would love to hear more about your angel work for chemo patients - do you do this for a specific hospital? I work at a cancer hospital and can't thank you enough for doing what you do for patients! xoxo
