I miss you (daylight hours!)

I miss you

Eeeeek! I'm burning the candle at both ends right now so before I say anything else, apologies in advance for the poor picture quality of my card. The only time I've had to create is in the evenings and those dark nights are creeping in. That's a part of autumn I'm not so keen on - especially when it comes to photographing my projects!

But alas, it's Friday-Eve and I dunno about you but I'm sooooooo ready for the weekend (if only to get some daylight to take a decent pic of this card!). I'm also ready for a fabulous new CASE Study from our marvellous muse, Kathy Racoosin. I hope that you are too!

Feast your eyes on this and prepare to study:

 Check out the original post of this card here.

I was taken with the stripes. What can I say? I'm a sucker for them! I just went with a more autumnal feel with my colours. I even think this may, *may* pass as a masculine card. What do you think?

I was also taken by Kathy's use of vellum and although my pic doesn't show it too well, there's a piece of vellum behind the leaf aperture. :)

Now I'm pretty sure that the rest of the CASE Study DT didn't do a last minute job like myself on their wonderful creations, or had to stand on a chair over a desk to try and get a half decent shot of their projects! Go check 'em out for some amazing inspiration!

tips and tricks
  • To keep the strips of cardstock flush, I adhered the strips to a panel of white card that I covered with my glue gun. This helped to keep the strips straight too!
  • The leaf aperture actually has a piece of vellum adhered behind it. My pic doesn't show it too well, but the ghostly leaf shape helps to emphasise the feeling of loss in the sentiment.
  • When I die cut the leaf from the striped panel of cardstock, I kept the stripy leaf I was left with for a future project!
And you know the drill by now. We want to see you play along with us! Be inspired by Kathy's card, get creative, and share the final results with us!

Right, I've gotta scoot! It's been an amazingly busy week at work and on the blogeroo! Believe it or not, I'll be back tomorrow with yet another post. I think you guys may be sick of me by the end of this week! Ha!

As always, thank you so very, very much for stopping by here today. Your visits are always appreciated!

I miss you and my studio, Duchess...just spent 2 1/2 hours reading after working late and going to the gym. This Diva is pooped! I am so missing the daylight hours too. Hugs! ox
