CASE Study #82 and Clean and Simple #181

Hello!

The CASE Study muse this month is Laura Bassen. I wish I had had time to enter all of the challenges. I love Laura Bassen. For CASE Study #82, this is the inspiration.
My interpretation doesn't come close, but here it is:
I used PTI Tiny Tags and cut my stars from Stampin' Up! Ruby Red (retired), Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, and Old Olive. I strung them up on Twinery twine. The sentiment is Think Big Favorites #13. The card base is PTI basic white.

Edited to add: I just realised that this card also fits with the sketch over at Clean & Simple #181, so linking up now. :-)

Skip this paragraph if you don't want to listen to me whinge... I have spent most of the past few days in bed. I am aching all over, including a massive headache, I have a sore throat, and I am very tired. I was lying in bed (very bored) thinking "Maybe I feel worse because I am just laying around? Perhaps if I just got up and got moving around a bit, I'll feel better?".  I got up, made a sandwich, threw on a load of washing, and made this card. I can now report that I do not feel better, I feel worse, and I'm off to jump back into bed, sigh! I really don't like being sick. I am ready to get better now. :-)

Thanks for coming by to visit!

So sorry to hear that your are sick, Michelle! I can perfectly understand how yoou feel. I was in the same spot last couple of weeks and still not completely well. Cough and sore throat is persist. It is the Para Influnza Virus and apparently take a month to get over it :( Take rest and hope you get better soon.
Gorgeous take on the challenge :) Love the colourful stars and perfect sentiment too:)

BTW: We are moving to Perth although prefer to move to the east :)

Your card rocks!! Love your rainbow of stars and the sentiment is perfect. :)

I hope you feel better soon. Don't try and be superwoman again okay? Stay in bed and rest! Find a good book, wallow in a bit of self pity and take it easy. :)
