I dunno about you but I'm wondering if this week will end? It's been really busy here, but that seems to have made time go slower...I always thought it was supposed to make time go faster?! Oh, I think I'm getting that mixed up with when you're having fun LOL! Well I think Friday Eve will go fast today because it's time for another CASE study!

Super excited to see a fab new card up for CASEing from our fabulous muse, Heather Pulvirenti:

I was originally going to go for a shaped card too, but chickened out took a different creative direction instead *wink*


I really must take pics in natural daylight - apologies for this one!

Now c'mon, admit it - you thought I'd run a mile from anything resembling a peachy colour, didn't ya? Well I attempted to hug it a little bit here with some help from some new Thickers from American Crafts - love 'em! :)

I hope you can join us with this week. If you need more tempting, up for grabs for one randomly selected participant is a "Retro Christmas" stamp set from Practicing Creativity courtesy of Judith Gowdy from JG's Nook! Shame I can't enter myself LOL!

And if you need a li'l more inspiration, then check out the rest of the CASE study DT who have some seriously fabulous creations:
