Mad panic and a mini-card :)


Well still no boxes packed here...I'm in for a manic weekend methinks....

However, it's not quite the weekend yet so let's celebrate Friday Eve with:

Another CASE study featuring another fabulous creation from our muse, Julee Tilman. Let's see what's up for CASEing this week, shall we?
Check out Julee's original post for this card here!

Isn't this one seriously gorgeous card?! I tried to keep with the dotty theme and gave yet even more inky love to my fave Hero Arts set of the moment, Just Saying Hi:

Let's Talk

Now I'm gonna 'fess up that I bodged up big time with my organisational skills last weekend and ended up making a card for next week's CASE study instead of this week's - D'oh! I didn't even realise until typing this post the night before!!! So in such an emergency I find creating smaller cards much less stressful and this li'l one measures a mini 3x3 inches. I hope it still does justice to the original creation and at least I have my card ready for next week's CASE study during our manic move *wink*

Oooh and because I even found time during my mad panic to distress the edges with my Distress Ink, I can enter this into the current Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge - bonus! :D

Up for grabs this week on CASE study is a $15 gift certificate to spend at Amber Ink which has a fab selection of clear and digi-stamps. So why not join in the inky fun?

Now I'm pretty sure that the rest of the CASE study DT made their cards for the right week and didn't find themselves in the mad panic I was in! Why not check out their awesome creations?

Maureen said...

eek! no packed boxes? Hup to it, Missy!! I dread the thought of moving AND dread the fact we may have to live with family if the house isn't built by the time I sell my place..ugh!! So let's think of happier thoughts like this card!! I am thinking of getting this set and my first thought was, wow, that sentiment is HUGE!! LOL, but it's a mini card I see! LOL Love the lace trim and aqua dots paper :) Have a great Friday...just a Thursday for me tomorrow...but reports are DONE!! hugs :)

Such a sweet card! Love the subtle telephone in the background and that lace and border just sets it off beautifully!

Jen W. said...

Love it! Aren't mini cards life savers?

Lynn said...

LOL...that is something I would do...I'd be sitting there all proud of myself that I was done early...but you need to rush yourself more often. I love, love, love, this card! Hero Arts = happiness!

A perfect CASE Amy, and I love how little it is. Something about small cards just tickles my fancy. Adorable!

Love this card and love how you took one part of the original card and turned it into your own sweet mini card. Really must join you ladies again at CASE... soon...

Benzi said...

What a cutie 3x3 card! I am all into dots so this really grabs me. Love it!

Sue said...

Had to have a little chuckle about you getting your weeks mixed up- that is something I would do!!!
The card you have 'whipped' up is brilliant, love the shadow of the phone behind the sentiment!!
Hope you finally got your boxes packed and are settling in to your new home! :)

Laurie said...

This is totally adorable! I love the trim in the background!

IamDerby said...

Loving the colors on this!

Ingrid Danvers said...

I hope you've packed some (if not all) boxes by now.

Your card is beautiful, Aimes. Love your style.

Nerina said...

This is beautiful Aimes! I love the trim and the gorgeous Polka Dots ... but the use of the sentiment right over the image is totally fabby! I really hope your move goes well - this must be the most *incredibly* overwrought time for you! HUGS!

Amy Kolling said...

Another phone beauty!! I love how you overstamped the sentiment on the phone! Love that technique!
