An inky adventure...


Woot woot! It's Friday Eve! The weekend is almost here - I can taste it :D

And no surprises from me, Friday Eve means....

A new CASE study! But not only that, a new CASE study with a new muse! March brings us spring, daffodils and for us on CASE study, Julee Tilman! I'm sure you all know Julee as the owner and designer of Verve Stamps - we're so excited to have her on board!

Check out the first fabulous creations from Julee up for CASEing this week:
You can check out the original post of this beauty here

And here's my take on it (brace yourselves, peeps!):

Happy Birthday to You

I know! What on earth was going on whilst I was creating this?! Sooooooo not my style but I have to say I was on a ball of a creative adventure getting covered in ink with it! Just played in my crafty corner, kept referring to Julie's creation and this is what it resulted in!

Now come on and join the fun with us! One lucky, randomly selected peep will be the new owner of 5 bundles of baker's twine courtesy of JG's Nook. You can never have too much baker's twine, right? *wink*

Before you dash to play along, be sure to check out the rest of the super duper talented CASE study DT:

Right I've really gotta get myself organised for a weekend of packing boxes and maybe, just maybe, having a good sort out of my stash hoard collection of crafty bit 'n' bobs - wish me luck!

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a super weekend!

Catch ya later!
