CHF Challenge #7 - Designer Style

It's Monday (insert a groan here...) and we have a new challenge with the CHF girls! This one was SO much fun!

The Designer Style Challenge was to pick one member of the design team and case either 1) something from their gallery OR 2) their style. My son picked a name for me... Lori Craig!!! This was such a treat. Lori's style is wonderful and I got lost in her gallery, trying to only pick one idea.
Hello Friend - Lori Craig Inspired:

My card was based on Lori's card: WISE FRIEND. She had a few others with a similar layout, so I used her general style too. Stitching elements and button accents are a couple of her trademarks.

We invite you to join us. The gallery is chock full of fantastic ideas. Look in the gallery to find something and link back to the forums for us to see. All the designers are taking part this week. Check their blogs for their fun designs... and to see who they cased!
