Embrace a CASE (Copy and Share EVERYTHING)

Here we are at another Tuesday layout challenge and I'm rearing to go again now I'm refreshed from my break away from blogging and stamping.

In saying that, I had every good intention of making something today to show you all, but I was side-tracked playing with Master 3 up until he went to preschool this afternoon. So, as a result, I'm going to hi-jack a layout swap I participated in recently and post my contribution to same.

Lovely Marcia from The Stamp Spot recently invited me to participate in a 'layout' card swap. I just LOVE Marcia's work and couldn't resist taking the chance to be involved with this swap. Her layout was simple and easy to use. I've taken Marcia's layout for today's challenge and made one small alteration. For today's layout challenge please find the below sketch. You'll note that there's no sentiment as such and it's because I'd like you to decide where you'd like to put your sentiment. It can be anywhere on this layout, just so long as we can see it as well as the main 'focal' point of the design.

And here's my example, which is the card I made for Marcia's original layout swap - Incidentally Marcia, I pinched this photo off your blog :)

To see the great creations other participants contributed to this swap please click HERE. Alternatively, to see more of Marcia's great work, you can visit her blog by clicking any of the hyperlinks in this post, or I've got her in my list of blogs I visit on the right.

Supplies:
* Embrace Life Stamp Set (Available in the new 09/10 Idea Book & Catalogue)
* Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant Cardstock.
* Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant Stamp Pads.
* Word Window Punch.

Moving on to what you've all been up too in my absence. I've received a couple of emails from friends and readers showing me what you've been doing for the layouts I've shared while on holidays. so, in no particular order, here they all are:

Thank you everyone for playing along while I've been away, you've all done some amazing things with the layouts I've created, and they all look so different. I can't wait to see what you come up with for this weeks challenge.
