Let's Chat....


Sorry about the absence here on the ol' blogeroo this week. Just believe me when I say I've had the most stressful week at work ever! Every time I thought things could only get better, they got worse. One thing's for sure though; I'll be happy when the weekend arrives!

Speaking of which, let us celebrate Friday Eve with a new CASE study! (see my clever link there, eh?!)

So without further ado, here's Mariana Grigsby's final creation up for CASEing this week as we'll have a new muse to admire next month. I for one, have loved her creations that have been featured on the CASE study blog!

Just loving those colours! That, and the use of an oval is what I focused on for my own take on it:
Let's Chat

I know it's so different from the original card to CASE but if you look closely, I'm sure you can see some similarities (you might need a microscope though - *wink*) You can't tell on the pic, but I coloured my bling black with a Promarker - love that technique!

We had such a fabulous turn out for last week's CASE study - Thank You! I'm hoping you too can find some inky time to join in this week too!

And just in case you need some more ideas and inspiration; check out the rest of the super duper CASE study DT!

I'm also hoping this will qualify for the current challenge over at Caardvarks - it's pretty clean and simple don'cha think?!

Catch ya later!
