CASE Study #140

Hello!

I've had a lovely week this week. My brother visited for a few days. He lives in London (UK), but he was holidaying in Bali, and he decided to "drop in" and visit us (in Brisbane, Australia) before he headed home again. My girls love their uncle! I really miss him, so I love it when he's able to visit. :-)

I've ended the week with a horrible cold - blazing sore throat, sore body, cough. Wah! Tomorrow is Mother's Day, and I've had to cancel our celebration with our Mums because I'm not feeling well enough for it. I also don't want to infect the Mums with this bug, it's not nice.

On a happier note, I made a card for CASE Study Challenge #140.
I used PTI Strawberry Patch stamps. Card is SU! Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade, and Old Olive. Twine is Peapod by The Twinery. Ink is Versamark, Tuxedo Black, and Poppy Parade.

I hope I get to play along every week this month. I really love Maile, so any opportunity to CASE her is top of my priority list! ;-) This is Maile's card.
Thanks for coming to visit!

Michelle, I really hope that you feel better quickly and that you are able to get some rest. Your card is beautiful. The subtle tone on tone stamping is amazing with the pops of color.

You feel better Michelle, sounds like a nasty bug. You are so sweet to keep away from the mums. They don't need to get sick. You totally rocked CASE study this week!!! Love the strawberries!

So sorry you aren't feeling well, but you still managed to create a beautiful card...so cheery and totally reminds me of the inspiration card from Maile. I love the paper pieced strawberries on this card, really makes them pop!
