Busy, busy, busy!


What did I tell ya? You get a flurry of posts in one week and then nothing....not a single post for days and days....not that I've been sat here doing nothing; I've been busy beyond belief: A weekend away with friends, a new phone to configure and work out how to function (yes, I did turn the Sat Nav on and didn't know how to turn it off - much to the amusement of my students as a voice kept directing me outta the classroom....), and not forgetting the prospect of a new car AND maybe a new place to live. Phew! Busiest. Week. EVER!

But I'm back now and you just knew that I'd be back today didn't ya? After all, it's Friday Eve and time for:

A new CASE study! And with it a fabulous new muse on board with us for the next few weeks: Eva Dobilas! Wanna see her creation up for CASEing this week? Course you do!

Now I did something a little different this week. Was I rebel again? Well you decide!

I was brave...

I took a deep breath...

I played with digital images! I know, I know - I surprised myself at how simple and kinda fun it was to play with the things...


I was lucky enough to bag this digital stamp to play with courtesy of Robyn's Fetish: our sponsor for this week's challenge. The background DP is also digital and from a sweet kit called Sweet Fiesta by Holly Brooke Jones. I really do need to play with digital images more....just gotta persuade my printer to play nicely more often ;D

Of course - I also smothered those hearts with glossy accents (no surprises!) but my photography just can't pick them up without natural daylight (again, no surprises!) I'll be so glad when spring is here and I can take my photos without any need for artificial lighting!

So what could you win if you play along with us this week? Well one lucky peep will be selected to win 5 digital products of their own choice from Robyn's Fetish! So why not get inky and join us?!

And before you dash to go get inky, I urge you to check out what the rest of the awesomely talented CASE Study DT created:

Iwona Palamountain (Chupa)
Andrea Ewen
Cristina Kowalczyk
Jean Martin
Julie Smith
Lenet Mos
Melyssa Connolly
Sue Kohler
Teneale Williams
Eva Dobilas (February's Muse)

OK, ok now you can go get inky!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm sure I'll see you before next Thursday but as for now I've got some serious Google Reader action on my agenda ;D

Catch ya later!

Heidi said...

Aimes your take on the card is striking! I love the bold image in the corner and clean simplicity of the rest of the card. I haven't tried digital stamps yet but you really did a great job with this one.

Eva said...

Amy, I just adore how you got inspired by the colors...this card is sooo sweet!!!

Caryn said...

Wow Aimes, I thought I had a hectic life!! I take it there's no budging that landlord? Good luck with the quest for a new home - maybe the next one could have a wee craft room space ;0)

See, you can do digi! I adore this card - the red - yum!

See you soon {hopefully}
