For My Idol-Laurie

This post is for a very talented forum friend, Laurie Willison. She made it to the Top 10 in this year's Gallery Idols contest. I'm so proud of her. I am a HUGE fan of her work. So many of her cards leave me speechless. I've run out of adjectives to use when leaving comments.  If you haven't already visited her blog, you should check it out. Her blog is Soapbox Creations.

Several of the Paper Dolls members put together a blog hop to honor Laurie and let her know just how awesome we think she is. Each person chose one of Laurie's creations to CASE. I couldn't join in on the hop, but there's still time to play along and add my link. I hope you do the same.

It was so hard to decide which card to CASE. Here's the card I chose. I love the color combination of Kraft, Raspberry Fizz, and White.

I CASEd it almost exactly except I used Royal Velvet instead of the Raspberry Fizz. I was lucky enough to have some extra paper flowers laying around. I plan on making a few more in different colors to make a set of cards.

One more thing. Laurie's birthday was in May and I had planned to make and send her a card. But, life got in the way and it took me forever to find some crafting time. I ended up CASEing a card by Vanessa Menhorn  that I saw in the latest volume of Card Creations magazine. I used Laurie's favorite color combination: Pure Poppy, Kraft, and Black. I never mailed the card because it was so late.

So, Laurie, this card was meant for you.


  1. Michelle this is SO sweet of you! I love the that purple you used for this card! I almost forgot about this card from so long ago! Thank you for the sweet words and posting this today! I do LOVE the colors on that card! So happy you remembered! That damask is my favorite too and I love the bow! I am so glad to have such a great group with the dolls! You girls are the sweetest!
