Well after some rest I'm now back, itching to get inky and ready to blog again!
Just before I do though, some of you have been sweet enough to comment and email asking me about my dad so I figured I'd update you here (feel free to skip to the card if you wish!). It's certainly been tough here and sadly Dad's condition deteriorated a few weeks ago which meant he could not come home for Christmas. So Christmas was....in a word....different. We did (and do) visit him often with fingers crossed for signs of improvement. I'll keep you informed if anything changes (hopefully for the better!)
Right. Back to the inky business! So we had a week off, but I hope you haven't forgotten that Friday Eve (Thursdays) mean it's time for a new CASE study!We're ending 2010 and starting 2011 with a BANG! here on CASE study. Check out this fabulous creation up for CASEing this week courtesy of our muse, Nina Brackett:
I know, gorgeous, right?! I honestly thought I knew exactly where I was heading when creating my own take on this; but then I was reminded that a wedding card was needed for the wedding we attended on the 27th. Eeek! A wedding card with no wedding themed stamps and a CASE study to create before Christmas to get myself organised. What's a gal to do? Well think out of the box a little and create a card that suits both occasions of course!
Hope you can tell that I CASEd aspects of the layout for my homemade Wedding Cake made from super pretty shimmer cardstock! Now this is my kinda baking: I'm a disaster in the kitchen but paper-based cakes are my speciality :)
I'm itching to play along again with this week's CASE study and I hope you fancy playing along too! Remember, up for grabs is a prize for one randomly selected peep so wha'cha waitin' for!
Need more inspiration? Then check out the rest of the super duper CASE study DT:
