# Catty Challenges

Casing the Catty #17

Love is in the air with Valentine's Day fast approaching. We have some big plans- a nice surprise for the kids on the 14th because we just love them.

I was also unsure if I was going to be able to participate for this CASING challenge because on Jan. 18, I had a accident where I tore three tendons in my hand and had to have them be repaired. Lucky for me, I noticed I had this project already done and thought it was a perfect fit for this week.

I was very liberal in my inspiration on this one. I saw a similar wreath idea on Pinterest and digging through my stash of stuff, I created this wreath using the You plus Me set (138594) and the Stacked With Love DSP (137779). 

I wrapped the wreath in gauze that I had on hand which ironically is also wrapped around my hand. I than using my ecutter cut out the feathers, hearts and arrow pieces. I hot glued everything on and stamped the sentiment onto the heart. I love the colors of the wreath. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. What a save with this project. Glad you could use such a fantastic project for the Valentine challenge. Hope your hand is healing well.

  4. This is super sweet, Becky! Love the cute arrow & feathers, & the gauze wrapping is a really clever background for the pretty mix of prints. The wreath looks great showcased in the empty frame too.
    Hope you are feeling better. :)
