CASE Study & PTI Make & take

Hi bloggers,

I am still alive, just really really busy, looking forward to finding crafting and blog hopping time some time soon!!! I do still look at all your fab creations but I am usually browsing from my I-Phone whilst I am out and about and its not easy to leave comments but I do still love you all!!

Anyway, I have made a card!!! Yes, shock horror, I played along with this weeks CASE Study,
this week we had to CASE this fantastic card by Barbara Anders, here is my take on it

I used PTI's Damask Design stamp set and Stampin up's Sage Shadow cardstock and ink (now retired...sob), mounted onto PTI's fab Vintage cream card as my base. The ribbon and Flower are from hobbycraft and I dusted some Tattered Rose Distress Ink around the edges to co-ordinate with the ribbon. The punch is available from Stampin up (only just out for purchase in the UK this month).

I made more of these cards for swaps for the PTI make & take day today that Kate & Aimes arranged for us, I made pink, blue & Peach ones and just changed my distress ink to suit!

I had sooooooooo much fun with the girls at the make & take and I got to meet people I have been in contact with through blogging over the last 18 months and some new faces. Kate, Aimes & Caryn worked so hard making the day a success, thank you sweeties and big hugs to all the girls I met today, especially Ginger Claire who let me use all her inks and saved one of my cards from the bin, LOL, I always do something wrong!!!

Anyway, I am making a pact to enter the CASE Study Challenge and Passion for Papertrey (aspromised to Kate) on a weekly basis, oh but then I fancy having a go at the WMS Challenge to.......mmmmm then there are all the older challenge I used to enter......Sigh!!! So many challenges, so lilltle time!

Finally, the fantastic Sonia did a big demo at Stampeezee yesterday using some of the new Woodware christmas stamps, it was fab, I managed to spend the entire day in the shop, had such a fab time! Hop over to Sonia's blog to see some of the fab samples that Sonia created for us! Everything Sonia used is available to buy on the Stampeezee Website.

Anyway folks, I am off to bed, it has been a hectic but fab craft filled weekend and I have loved every minute of it.x

  13. Hi Sarah,
    You beat me to it. I was on my way over to pay you a visit & I just read your comment on my blog. Sorry you don't get as much crafting time as you need. But obviously when you do, you sure make the most of it. These are gorgeous & so elegant. I hope you'll be going to the NEC in November. It was this time last year I was hoping to meet up with you there. I'm definitely going this time around & will be there Friday & Saturday. I really hope you'll be able to come, it would be lovely to meet you. Don't work too hard, but I hope you're making lots of money to spend on crafting goodies!!
    Huge Hugs
