I'm back after a long while away - sorry to have left you but it's still been busy this end visiting my Dad. The good news is that there has been talk of him coming home soon. I'm desperately trying not to get my hopes up too high for fear they'll be dashed, but I'm keeping everything crossed in the hope he does!
This is positive news means that I have finally found some inky time! Yay! I felt a little rusty at first; I think my mojo needs warming up! I've got quite a bit to share with y'all but for now let me focus on today which is Friday Eve which also means it's time for:
Hooray! A CASE study I was able to prepare for this time and boy am I glad I did as my fellow Papertrey Peep, Heather Pulvirenti is our Muse for November. I love Heather's style; it's so bold and fabulous - I mean, check out the card up for CASEing this week:
Now I just know that I'd struggle to make those colours coordinate half as well as Heather has so I took a few elements of her fab card and put my 'own spin' on it:
The changing of the clocks over here means I hardly get any natural light to photograph my cards so sorry for the poor pic!
It's been so long since I've had a good inky session that I had to cut the seal off the patterned paper pad for this card! Now it's open, it's gonna be used as I love it!
In need of more inky, inspiration? Then check out the awesomely talented CASE study DT - be sure to check out the new members of the DT too! So sad to see both Carole and Cindy leaving - I'll still be stalking their blogs though when I get the time *wink*
