Wowzers! Friday-Eve already?! This week is proving to be B.U.S.Y! Last week of school, last mad dashes to the post office (I'm becoming a real regular there!) and late night Christmas shopping has meant that I've been pretty MIA here in Blogland...
However, the good news is that the Christmas shopping is done, my trips to the post office are nearly finished and it's Friday-Eve :)
Let's kick off the pre-Christmas weekend celebrations with a fabulous new CASE Study! Our muse for December, Amy Sheffer has this beauty up for CASEing:
Check out Amy's original post of this beautiful card, here!
I was totally drawn with the butterfly (I'm a sucker for 'em!), the stamped lace and the splash of aqua, popping against the black and white. AND guess what? I didn't create a card for the Holidays this time (I've still got a couple of Christmas cards to share here but it feels so good to say that they're all done and posted - yay!):
It's a pretty CAS take on Amy's card (what else?!) and I liked the idea of juxtaposing clean and modern with fussy by using grid paper for my butterfly and a doily for my stamped element. Even the sentiment kinda mixes styles a little with it's use of two different fonts.
I'm also gonna enter this into the current Play Date Cafe Challenge too with my splash-of-aqua-butterfly.
Back to CASE Study: this week's CASE Study will run for two weeks to give you a chance to ink up and play along during the busy holiday season. I hope you can squeeze a bit of inky time to join us!
