Trendy Telephones


No way! It just cannot be Friday Eve already? Where did my week off go?!

Well I may not have squeezed in half as much inky therapy as I wanted to, but I did rustle up something for our Friday Eve tradition that is:

Yup a new CASE study to play along with! And up for CASEing this week is this little sweetie of a card by our muse for Feb, Eva Dobilas:

So what did I CASE from this? Well take a look and see if you can guess!

just saying hi

Yup I used Eva's card as a prime excuse to indulge myself in my new Hero Arts goodies *grin*

Try as I might, I just could not get pink to work for me on this so stuck with the trusty aqua/turquoise colour with a spot of coordinating bling on that fabulous, retro, telephone. My friend once had a phone like this - I loved it but apparently the novelty soon wears off if you're having an hour long catch up on it with your friends! Needless to say, since I christened this sweet stamp set at the weekend, I've been stamping cool telephones on everything LOL!

This week's sponsor is the Stamping Boutique so c'mon on and join the fun and you could be the randomly selected winner of some digi-goodies courtesy of 'em!

And as always, I urge you to check out what the rest of the super duper CASE study DT whipped up for ya:

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

Hope you're inspired to play along with us!

OK gotta dash now as this girlie needs to make the most of the remaining days off work before Monday morning rolls around before she knows it *sigh*!

Thank you so much for stopping by my li'l corner of Blogland :)

Catch ya later!
