Scary Times

Hey,

Now I was hoping for this to be a happy, bubbly post where I get over excited about my first ever publication (Check out CARDS Nov 2010 - page 49)

But sadly, this has been completely overshadowed by a family emergency.

Yesterday was not a good day. In fact, it was possibly the scariest day ever. I ended up rushing to hospital with my dad in a really bad way. It looked like the worst was to be confirmed yet somehow (and still, I've no idea how) he is stable.

So although it's Friday Eve; it's time for another CASE study; I don't have a sample to share with you today. Even though I've made it, I haven't had a moment to photograph it - my brain is mush and all I can promise is that when I do find the time, I will share it with you!

As for now, I hope the card up for CASE study this week will get your creative juices flowing from our Muse, Barbara Anders:The thing I CASEd was the layout and the use of stripy ribbon but feel free to CASE this in any way you feel inspired to. And if you need more inspiration then check out the great CASE study DT:

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)
Andrea Ewen
Carole Kisch
Cindy Lee
Lenet Mos
Sue Kohler
Teneale Williams
Barbara Anders (Octob
er's Muse)

So I'll be back with my card when I can. As for now, if you've got any positive vibes going - there's a guy here and his family who really needs 'em.

Catch ya later.
