A little Thank You...


C'mon it's Friday Eve so it's time for.....

Yup! Another CASE study from this month's Muse, the amazingly talented Mariana Grigsby!!! Wanna see what card of Mariana's we have to CASE this week?!

Mmmm check out all of that gorgeous green! And without further ado, here's my mini-CASE of it:

I say, "mini" because this is another one of my 3x3 cards. As I was saying in my last post, I'm so lucky to have such fab friends at work and I owed a couple of them a "Thank You!" This card will go to my buddy and colleague, Anji who really helped me out this week in getting hold of some supplies for our upcoming PTI Make and Take (I'm so excited!) She's a gal after my own earthy-colour-lovin'-palette- heart, so I hope she likes it!

Anyways if you can't tell, I CASEd the layout, but on a much smaller scale! I'd obviously love it if you played along too! If you need more tempting, this week's sponsor is Bonnie of Really Reasonable Ribbon who is giving this week's randomly selected winner a voucher. Go check her out for a huge selection of ribbons. The lace on my card is one of many sweet styles of ribbon she sells!

Needing more inspiration?! Then check out the awesome CASE study DT's take on the challenge:

This card is totally uber CE-UTE! I think what I like most about it, is that there's so much sweetness packed in a 3X3 size... Absolute bliss, my friend :D
Oh and heyyy... I knew it won't be long before "Chompy" makes itself comfortable in its new home! LOL!

Maureen said...
