It's what's on the inside that counts...


Happy Friday Eve, Peeps! :)

We're nearly hitting that sweet weekend (and the start of a week off work for me *wink*) with a fabulous new CASE study of course!

It's Sarah Martina Parker's last week with us as our muse, and I'm sure like me, you're really gonna miss her :( Thanks, Sarah for all the wonderful inspiration and for showing me that sometimes it's not too scary to venture outside your comfort zone :)

Let's check out her final, super card up for CASEing this week:

You can check out the original post of this card here.

Oh she just rocks that shabby chic, vintage style: making those layers work effortlessly together *sigh*

I was completely hooked by the yummy colours and those sweet stars. I got inky earlier this week and here's what I rustled up (and apologies in advance for the poor pics - Mr Sunshine hasn't come out to play recently...):

Gift Card Holder

I know what you're thinking. "Is that it?" Well c'mon, surely you know me well enough by now to know I wouldn't leave it at this (although I am diggin' that green ribbon of course!)

You just gotta pull on that ribbon to get your reward.....

Gift Card Holder Open


OK so the gift card inside is actually my library card and wouldn't be much use as a gift! Ha! I didn't have any gift cards on me but you get the idea, right? I'm thinking I may hold on to this for Christmas with that colour scheme and obviously purchase a gift card rather than giving away my library card!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the amazing CASE study DT whipped up for you to feast your eyes on before getting inky with us and joining in the fun!

OK so now you can go and have some inky fun! Be inspired by Sarah's fantastic card and get CASEing :D

Gotta sign off now and wish you all a super duper weekend, whatever you're doing! Hoping to be able to catch up with you all during my week off (though truth be told, if I'm gonna squeeze in everything I've said I'm going to do during the half term it'll be over before I know it!)

Catch ya later!
