Flower Power!


Well it's been a while since I last posted...let's just say that I got into the full swing of my Birthday celebrations and combined them with a fabulous Hen weekend full of giggles and I'm still recovering from it all LOL!

But let's not think about last weekend, how about this weekend?! Yup, it's nearly here,'s Friday's time for....

Woo hoo! Another fabulous CASE study, another fabulous creation from our muse, Jill Foster and yet another muse I'll be sad to see leave us after this week :(

Don't be too sad though, as Jill's leaving us in style with this gorgeous creation up for CASEing:

You can check out the original post of this card here

Ooh just look at how those colours 'pop' against that beautiful, clean, crisp white backdrop. That's what I took for my own CASE of this beauty:

happy Birthday

Tip: When playing with double-sided patterned paper, use the reverse side as a guaranteed coordinating piece of DP for your project!

Oh yeah - check me out; using up a slither of patterned paper from my stash *grin* This design is perfect for de-hoarding some of that paper that I've been stroking and not daring to administer the scissors to. I added a bit of 'oomph' to my panel of DP with a Copic Spica Pen (Clear) and some buttons - it looked kinda plain without 'em.

So fancy de-hoarding some of your own DP? Fancy just playing along with us even if you wanna keep your inky mitts on your DP stash? Then you know what to do: join us!

However, before you do, feast your eyes on the fireball of talent that is the rest of the CASE study DT!

Right, that's all from me for now. I'd say I've gotta dash, but it's a pretty quiet day for me at work today: a lot of our teachers are on strike so most students have been told to stay at home. I'm probably gonna have to face my dreaded filing cabinet for a job to do - it'll take at least a day to try and make it look like it's in some organised manner *wink*

Have a super duper weekend and thanks so much for stopping by here!

Catch ya later!
