Can you guess what it is yet?


What did I tell you? This week is just zooming by so fast! I'm still surrounded by fabulous PTI goodies I have to pack up for our make and take and just to add a li'l bit more pressure, I've come down with a horrid lurgy! I know my guy is so kind and sharing, but did he really have to share this with me?!

Sniffles and organising aside; it's Friday Eve and nothing stops for:A new CASE study! And with it this week, our fabulous new muse for October, Barbara Anders! Oh I just know you're gonna love the creations up for CASEing this month *wink*.

Here's what's up for CASEing this week:

Check out the leafy goodness on this baby! So in between sniffles, coughing, spluttering and organising, I squeezed what little inky time I could find to make my take of it:

Thank You

Recognise it?! OK so I've kinda cheated and used my own card from my last post for extra inspiration; but as I'm so busy (and ill *sob*) I'll hope you'll let me off!

Just a note about this card- the title of today's post is a reference to my seam binding; it's s'posed to be a flower if you couldn't tell! Don't ask me how I created that random flower from the seam binding. I envy all of you who can create those beautiful bows with it. I even followed a tutorial and my bow looked awful! So as a last resort, I stuck a load of tape down and twisted the ribbon randomly, sticking a button in the middle for the centre LOL! Do you think I'll get away with it?!

So as always - we'd love it if you could join in this week with us! If you need more inspiration (I have a feeling you might if you're still squinting at the screen trying to make the seam binding look like a flower LOL!) then check out the fabby CASE study DT:

OK back to make and take business with large doses of honey and lemon for me! Have a super duper weekend - mine's gonna be busy but oh so fun meeting some of you! I can't wait!

Catch ya later!

I adore that flower big way, why didn't I think about that before?! It's a totally rocking way to stamp these leaves too, you amazed me yet again!! Wahoo!

Maybe being sick is helping you, because your mojo has been on FIRE girl. LOVE that flower...I can't make those shabby, floppy bows either, but this awesome flower I might be able to pull off...
Great CASE. Hope you feel better soon!

Andrea Ewen said...

I absolutely adore your flower, Aimes! I didn't even have to squint at it! Super design and wonderful colors on your card. Love the whole thing, ESPECIALLY the seam binding flower!

Katie Berberich Handmade said...

Oh Aimes you poor thing and just when you didn't need it aswell! Isn't that always the way?
Your card is lovely, I have to say I wondered how you created that lovely flower and when I read on I had to giggle. That's the sort of thing I'd do!
Hope you get better soon and no rush on posting my dies. It sounds like you are snowed under. Although I can imagine there are worst things to be snowed under with ;)
Hugs, Katie x

I love that you CASEd yourself....I can see why...those leaves on the dotty biscotti are genius :) Feel better soon...sending you tea and honey in my thoughts :D Hey, did you redo your blog header and signature yourself or did someone do it?

Carol's Ink Spot said...

The ribbon flower is beautiful! I chuckled while reading how you made it. But sometimes it takes just 'messing around' to achieve beauty. Hope you feel better soon esp. for your gathering on Sunday!

Catherine Pooler said...

Amy, thank you so much for your comment!
Your work is incredible, right up my alley!

Terri said...

I am sorry to hear you are sick. Great job on the case. Love how the PP shows through the stamped image. I also like how your ribbon flower came out too. Hope you feel better soon and your make and take goes well.
