CASE Study #162


Wow! The weeks pass by so quickly! Here I am in my third week as Guest Designer at CASE Study Challenge already! Having our muse being Elena is making it so easy to play along this month, everything she creates is inspiring!

This week I went very literal in my interpretation. I saw wood and red and white gingham. I did give it my own special touch. Those of you who know me well will know that making bows is not my forte, so I am feeling inordinately proud of myself right now for making this pretty example. :-) I do have a Bow-Easy, but I still struggle, LOL!
I used PTI Wonderful Words: Hello stamps and die. The impression plate is PTI woodgrain. Colours are SU! Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Real Red, Distress Ink Walnut Stain, and a little PTI Fresh Snow. The ribbon came from the supermarket Christmas ribbon selection.

Elena's card is a beauty.
As you read this, I will be in Canberra for work. Just a couple of days away this week. Hopefully I'm not freezing. The weather has been so hot in Brisbane, that I've forgotten that it is still Spring in other parts of the country. ;-)

Thank-you for visiting me!
