Back to the telephones...


Wow! It's feels like a couple of weeks away from Blogland might as well be a couple of years: so much happens in such a short amount of time! I mean some of you have become Royalty since I've been gone! Amazing stuff!!!!

But I digress. It's Friday Eve, Peeps so let's get ready for the weekend with a new CASE study:

Shall we see what's up for CASEing this week from our fabulous muse, Silke Ledlow?

You can catch the original post of this li'l peachy number here!

And I actually had all my inky supplies unpacked and could select whatever materials I wanted to work with this week.......and yet I still grabbed my fave set of the moment *sigh*

Don't tell my other stamps, but I think it's true with those trendy telephones :) Ooh and not forgetting the large classic fabric design stamp that I stamped over the ledger paper: it certainly deserves some after jazzing up that DP some more!

I hope you can tell that I CASEd the layout. I got kinda scared that I was adding too many layers and then I though "What the hey? Let's just go crazy and mount my main panel at an angle too!" Admittedly my OCD side is screaming at me to mount it straight but my crazy-fun-lovin' side is prevailing and telling me to keep it that way *grin*

Time to 'fess up: The office clip was originally white so I coloured it with my alcohol-based marker. Great making your office supplies coordinate with your projects!

Fancy joining in the inky fun? Well I hope so! One randomly selected peep will win a $10 gift certificate to spend courtesy of Lori Boyd!

Now go check out what the rest of the CASE study DT created (of which, one of our member is now R.O.Y.A.L.T.Y!!! Can you guess which one?)

Hi Aimes!

Love your take on the card! Very modern-looking, even though it's showcasing and ol-fashioned telephone! Fun! And I totally love the gorgeous black ribbon you put on the card, very pretty!

Hugs, Wendy

Wow, that black bow really grabs your eye! Love it! Great layout and super cute stamp! Way to rock this one, Aimes!

Nerina said...

Wheels screaming to check out the new telephone card here ... LOVE it Aimes!! The black bow adds so much pizzaz to this - and I think the slanted image just finishes it off! My 'phones are in my house now ... and it was all your fault. I've thanked you already, but no harm doing it again :0)! *GREAT* card!!

Jean Martin said...

I totally agree that the black is a fantastic accent! What a fab card Aimes!!!

Sue said...

Angy said...

Cute Aimes - love it. don't let your OCD take over - leave that piece at an angle. That was truly hard for me to get over - I am so ANAL about those things - had to get over it in stamping though. Love your work! Glad your dad is finally out of the hospital! Yippee!!!

Unknown said...

Ring Ring!! Great job with that phone set, always looks fab!
