Party Time!

If you've popped across from Gallery Idol you can check out more about my final entry here!
Voting ends today at noon MDT (that's 7pm UK time) so be sure to vote before it's too late! Click on the link in my sidebar to check out the entries.
Thank You


Ready to P.A.R.T.Y?!




Woooo hooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!! Let's get this party started - CASE study styleeeeee :D

Yup! We're celebrating the first blog-anniversary of CASE study! And how do you celebrate a blog-anniversary, you ask? Well in style of course, with a blog hop, lots of fun prizes, and a chance for you to join in the party too!

Now before you get comfy, you should have come from the CASE study blog because that's the starting point.

OK so you've come from there? Well let's get on with the party!

We've decided to CASE each other for this celebration. Lemme tell you that I'm so glad that our DT leader, Chupa, does this job for us every week because it's so hard to narrow down not only who to CASE but which creation of theirs to CASE as well.

I finally picked my fellow DT member, Cristina. Cristina never fails to inspire me and make me gasp in admiration for her creations and in addition to this, she's such fabulous blogging buddy too. After drooling over her blog for a whole day, I finally decided on this fabulous card to CASE :


You can check out the original post of this here

I love not only the super layout of this beauty, but how it's purely the result of Cristina just sitting and playing with her new toy stamp set. There was already a butterfly stamp in this set, but she wanted to see if she could make a larger one - and she did!

So I got out my own Modern Basics set and got inky:

Hello

The result from my inky session was a larger flower. I decided to change the colours as this card will be heading to my friend soon for a birthday (who says you need a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment for a Birthday card?)

Seeing as I created a very graphic and modern flower, I'm gonna throw my hat into the ring of the current Moxie Fab World Challenge - Fanatical About Botanical. Seems I like flowers and leafy things more than I originally thought!

But enough of my own challenges, now we wanna see you join in the celebrations too! Come and play along with us: be inspired by a creation from a CASE study DT member and get inky! You can pick any DT member past or present and any card. Yup - it doesn't have to be a card created from CASE study! So what are you waiting for? Get inspired, ink up and link up here!

And what would a party be without presents, eh?! Well I'm offering two gifts for one lucky commenter; firstly a $20 Gift Certificate for Snapily and secondly a $15 Gift Certificate for the stamping company of your choice (up to the value of $15 and subject to the stamping company offering gift certificates!) I figure that then you can treat yourself to whatever you desire (within reason!)

To be in with a chance of winning these goodies simply leave a comment by Tuesday 9th August 6pm EDT on this post and I'll randomly select a winner! The winner will have one week to get back to me with their contact details and choice of stamp company.

Ok peeps! Let's do the conga over to the next blog which is the lovely, Andrea.....

Thanks so much for partying with me :D
