Easy Peasy Stripes!


Happy Friday-Eve, Peeps! I'm happy to report the first week back at work is zooming by so quickly - I could easily do 5 more of these before we break up for the Easter holidays *wink*

So let's start to taste the weekend this Friday-Eve with a sweet new CASE Study:

This is Karola's final week with us as our muse. I've loved seeing how her creations have totally inspired me regardless of the fact that our styles are so different. Let's see what's up for studying this week and send her off with style:

Check out the original post of this creation here!

So what was I inspired by? Well I couldn't help but focus on the sweet strip of lined paper across the top half of Karola's project so I created my own and went with the creative flow:

Happy Birthday

FYI: There's a subtle, aqua flower stamped behind the 'happy' but my pic doesn't pick it up. Just imagine it's there, OK? :)

The strip of striped card was simply created by using the chisel end of my Promarkers and a ruler - easy peasy!

accordion folded flowers also inspired me to ink up the gorgeous flowers from my Verve set: Hope Blooms.

So there you have it! This is how Karola inspired me, now it's your turn to show us how Karola inspired you! Need more inspiration? Check out the rest of the CASE Study DT:

Christina Maclaren
Clare Buswell
Debby Hughes
Teresa Kline
Julie Lacey (on a break right now)
Jean Martin
Maureen Plut

Karola Witczak (February's muse)

We'd love for you to play along with us! :)

Right - I really must dash: this first week back has been M.A.N.I.C! Late night meetings have given me hardly any time to do anything outside of work or flipping pancakes this week so apologies for my absence!

Thank you so much for stopping by today - I really appreciate it! :)

Catch ya later!
