DJKASEing KAY

Hello, Hello!

For those of you who celebrated Mother's Day on Sunday, I hope you had a wonderful day! Huge hugs to you if the day is a sad one. I also want to say my heart goes out to all the families whose lives have been impacted by the ferocious wildfire happening in Alberta, Canada.

I'm sure I've told you before that one of my card artist heroes is Kay Miller. Her blog is My Joyful Moments. I mean, first of all, what a great and befitting blog name! I can tell you I've had a mazillion joyful moments drooling scrolling through Kay's blog! If you live in the shady side of the forest and haven't yet had the pleasure, take a day and visit her to see for yourself. You might want to wire your jaw shut first.

So it was beciting for me to see that sweet Kay is the featured card artist to be CASEd over at the "CASE with a twist" challenge at Time Out. I couldn't pass that up! When I CASE (copy and share everything) someone's card, I call it DJKASE because I like to mess with letters and words and aaackronyms. And it confuses new readers. Wait. What?

Let's reveal.

Kay's card is this beauty:
Kay's card
And here is my DJKASE:
Darnell's card
I went old school and used a wooden stamp from Stamp City with a built-in frame. I colored the flowers and dragonfly in unusual colors with my Ziggies. I wanted to follow Kay's pretty colors and, hey, that's the beauty of having an artistic license, right?! I can paint pink irises with gray leaves if I want. The sediment stamp is from SU and the flourish was a die cut sent to me by a friend long ago. Of course, Stella wanted to play:

Mother's Day

We were fortunate to have the grandtwinsons for a weekend sleepover! Many of you have seen the boys enjoying the Playhouse over the years so I thought you would love to see the cards they made for their marvelous mom:

Featuring watercolor pencils.
Featuring "that colored tape."

And if you'll indulge me, I'll add these:
Being goofy after their baths. They are going to be tall men; it wasn't that long ago they both easily fit onto just one cushion!
Don't mention it to them, but I'm still jealous of those eyelashes!
And this one looks like a good one for the Christmas card photo, doesn't it? Henry is on the left and Adam is on the right in all the photos. How does that happen?

You created a beautiful card and I love the grey being used. It is a prefect homage to the original card. Your grandsons look great and look at their hair! I am so happy that they don't get it buzzed like so many do. They created wonderful cards for their mom-you must be a proud grandmom

Verna Angerhofer said...

Thanks for sharing Joy's card and your CASE of it. I love both versions. And, I also loved to see your Mother's Day cards too. The grandkids are very good looking and I loved the photos you shared. I am sure it was a fun time for all of you!

cuilliesocks said...

Hello Darnell, your card is stunning, such a beautiful floral image with lovely colours.
Fabulous cards made by your Grandsons and will be treasured by their mum,super photos too, thanks for sharing them, Kate x

conil said...

The DJKASE of Kay's card is so beautifully colored...pink and grey irises really do it for me. I, too, drooled over Kay's card for a long time before I did anything about it. As it turns out, I practically copied it (boo, me!). Think the twins legs look a good deal longer than the last photos I saw of them. They did a stellar job on the cards for their Mom. Hope your Mother's Day was memorable & you're feeling better. Think of you often.

Jean said...

Your card is beautiful Darnell, I love the pretty pink irises and the curly flourish.A super DKCASE of Kays lovely card.
