Who's on the Case?

Happy Wednesday! So, are you gearing up for the belly bulge? Bring on the sweats, I need turkey!!! Moving on to fewer calories let's talk about this weeks YNS Challenge (YNS30): We want you to case one of the current design teams creations that's it! Actually, this was the hardest challenge ever for me because trying to pinpoint who I was going to case was a very difficult decision...I wound up closing my eyes and pointing . Maureen you were my pick and here is your super fantastic card using Merry Mouse Eve.

 Isn't this card super duper! Maureen is a shading queen, I love the depth she was able to bring to that cute image.
Now I really struggled to stay on task because my hands have a mind of there own I swear!  So, here is my card using Just Swimming By Mermaid and the recently  released Mini Happy Days Mermaid which, by the way, I couldn't wait to use together:


 I hope you can see what I took from her creation to come up with my own  I may need to practice a bit more! I Love that background paper!!!It has to be at least 9 years old, back when I first  created 8 1/2 by 11 layouts. I had no idea I could ever hang onto anything that long...WOW!
OK so it's your turn, so check out the dt creations and have a go! By the way I loved stopping by all your amazing creations for the Yellow,Nesties & Stickles challenge thanks for the great inspiration!
