Not a stamp in sight!


It's nearly the weekend, Peeps! It's Friday-Eve and we all know what that's time for, right?

Time for a new CASE study, time for a fab new creation to be inspired by from our muse, Julie Lacey and time feast your eyes on this beauty:

Check out the original post of this card on Julie's blog here!

I was totally inspired by the colours Julie used and the way the red totally 'pops' as well as the square shape of the card. I used both of these ideas to rustle up a wedding card:

Just Married

I'm also trying to hit two birds with one stone by making my CASE study card and making a card for a wedding we're attending this weekend (ooh and found it a great way of being able to cut into some lovely new Crate Paper stash *wink*) Oh and I've just realised that there's not a stamp in sight on this card - now that makes a change!

So there's my take on the CASE study - why not check out what the rest of the CASE Study DT whipped up this week? I guarantee that after taking a peek, you'll be itching to play along with us :)

I'm dashing off now as I've gotta get organised for the weekend. We (My guy, a friend of ours and myself) are driving to the other end of the country for our friend's wedding so I need to get my outfit sorted, my map skills up to scratch (I can never fully trust Sat Nav y'know) and get plenty of reading material for my journey as I have a feeling the guys will be sat in the front having their geek/guy chat and I'll be sat in the back left to my own devices...

...I have a feeling this journey is gonna feel longer than it actually is! LOL!

Wishing you all a fabby weekend! Thank you so much for stoppin' by!

Catch ya later!

Oh yes, your wedding down in Devon isn't it? I don't envy the drive at all, especially if you've got to sit in the back (yawn). I think I'd take a nice fluffy pillow and a blankie and try to sleep through - it'll go much quicker that way!!

Great CASE this week, love the black and neutral colour combo!
