Thank YOU!

Hey,

Just swinging by with a super quick post not only to share a project with y'all, but to express my thanks for all your sweet messages about my dad. Times are tough and I'm still living out of a suitcase, not knowing where I'm staying from one night to the next, but it's worth every bit of disruption if it means dad can get better.

So I'm posting on a Thursday (aka Friday Eve) so you know that it's time for:


So here's the gorgeous card by Barbara Anders up for our CASE study this week:

Both polka dots and stars - this card definitely hits my soft spots! And although it's not a card, this is my take on the challenge:

Thank You Treat Box

So how did I squeeze in any inky time for this week's CASE study? Well I had to cut some treat boxes for an art club at work and couldn't resist cutting one from some yummy kraft cardstock for myself to decorate *wink* It's been so long since I've gotten inky, but it's just the kinda therapy the doctor ordered for me to de-stress a little.

If I could make lots of these, I'd fill them with sweet treats and give them to you guys as a thank you for your positive vibes/prayers during this anxious time! You're all so sweet; thank you so much!

Fancy playing along with us? I hope so, and if my treat box isn't enough to get your mojo going, then check out the rest of the CASE study DT:

Take care for now dear friend x
