Polka Dot Snow...


Happy Thanksgiving to peeps across the pond toady! If you're celebrating it, I hope it's a goodie :)

For the rest of us, we can still celebrate Friday-Eve in the traditional way, right?!

Yup. You guessed it. Another fabulous CASE Study for us to be inspired by!

Up for inspirational grabs this week is this beautiful card by our muse, Kryssi Ng:

Check out the original post of this CAS beauty, here!

As you know, I'm trying really hard to get a real start on some Christmas cards. I need 'em to be preferably flat and CAS in design (I'm not one for mass producing but it's good to whip out a few of the same design at least!) So unsurprisingly I took a festive direction after going dotty for Kryssi's CAS beauty-of-a-card (see what I did there? in polka dots? Tee - hee!):

Happy Holidays

This card was whipped together in a matter of minutes thanks to my inspiration point. The longest amount of time was taken in deciding whether to round that top corner or not!

So whether you're scoffin' on a Thanksgiving feast or not, we'd love to see you join in the fun with us! No matter what you're level, we love to share the inspiration!

Speaking of inspiration, why not check out what the rest of the CASE Study DT created?

Normally I'd sign off by saying I had to dash, but that would be pretty tricky at the moment. Football training last night resulted in me leaving with one ankle abnormally larger than the other - ouch! So I'm hobbling off today with an ankle strapped up...still, least it's not an injury that can stop me from stamping :)

Thank you so, so much for stopping by my li'l corner of Blogland!

Catch ya later!
