tribute to cathleen

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It's been a busy couple of days here at our house.
Painter is done-furniture is scheduled to be delivered-need to pick out some new window treatments and get the house back in order.

I feel like I am on a roll now so while I have the momentum I am going to get closets organized and continue with organizing my craft supplies.

Well, my card for today is for a new game on splitcoaststampers: It's called the "queen for a day".
It's been going on for about 6 weeks. This week the talented Cathleen Torina was given the honor. She is a super talented stamper.
Congrats Cathleen I hope you enjoyed your reign!!

The idea is to look in the chosen stampers gallery, select one of her cards and do a re-make on the card. I wanted to take part in this to honor Cathleen since she is one of my paper doll friends.
I saw this card and decided to make that one mary marsh style. I kept Cathleen's layout and used the same nesties fleur de lis die to cut my shape and the same cuttlebug folder. I changed the colors and used a different stamp set. Since her theme was shoes, I went that route but used ballet shoes.
I used my bow easy to tie this bow. I think its works better with silk ribbon though.

Well, it's late here and I am tired so time to turn off the lights in charmed life land for another day.

card recipe:
stamps: dance (simon says stamp)
paper: su melon mambo, ww
ink: memento black
