Inspired by the one and only....


Hope we're all having (or have had if you're reading this later) a fan-tab-u-lous Friday Eve. I'd say that my weekend is starting but to be honest it's been one looooooong weekend for past month already LOL! Actually, we're now on that countdown of back to school as we're over halfway through the hols already - eek!

But let's not dwell about going back to work - let's have fun with a new CASE study!

We're still in a total party mood this month, celebrating our first birthday - you'll notice that the challenges this month have been slightly different. This week proves no different with yet another CASE study with a twist...

...that twist is that we're CASEing the one and only, Iwona (aka Chupa!) Yup - it's about time this girly got a taste of the spotlight; after all Chupa is the whole mastermind behind CASE study. The girly that looks after us all on the DT so well and I'm so happy to call a friend! She's the one frantically running behind the scenes making sure everything goes to plan and y'know she does an amazing job because everything does go to plan and with plenty of ooomph! with the enthusiasm she injects into e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.!

Oh I could gush on forever about how fabby Chupa is but then you knew that already, right?

So here's the deal this week: you drool over Chupa's gallery for a few hours, pick a card to use for your own CASE study and come up with something!

Here's the card I finally narrowed it down to:

Check out the original post of this beauty, here

I really loved the way Chupa had stamped that fabby background and was really drawn by the colours; a colour combo that I'd probably shy away from normally but then that's what made me wanna CASE it :)


Tip: don't have any colour-coordinated ribbon? Grab a strip of white ribbon (twill in this case) and colour with an alcohol marker! Give it time to dry and ta-dah! Perfectly coordinating ribbon :)

Admittedly it's a very CAS CASE! Don't go thinking I only stamped part of my background and got bored LOL!

So that's my tribute to one amazing girlie - now it's your turn! Take a peek in Chupa's gallery and be inspired!

Why not check out the beauties the rest of the CASE study DT picked and created for your eyes only?
