And a very happy Saturday to ya! Hooray for the weekends (makin' those working weeks just that li'l bit easier to get through *wink*)
Ok so I couldn't resist. I just had to take part in the PTI blog hop this month even though I didn't think I'd have time! Now I'm gonna keep this short and sweet for peeps who are hoppin' so firstly here's the Blog Hop Brief:
"One of the most fun things about this hobby is the people you meet, whether in person or online, and the things you learn from them. Now is your chance to show off any skills you might have learned from a fellow stamper, and perhaps even give them a little shout out to thank them for the inspiration they have provided. Create a project using one of your favorite learned skills and perhaps after a little blog hopping, we will ALL learn some new tips and tricks and continue to pass on the love of this hobby!"
Now my obvious thought was to turn to the awesomely talented PTI DT for my entry; but then I thought about how I've been inspired and learned so much from so many other talented stampers too! So I figured it'd be nice to show some appreciation for someone different to who you were probably expecting....
I didn't wanna CASE anyone, but someone who has played a large influence on my current style (and the one I'm most comfortable with) is Carly Robertson of Papers In Bloom. I adore her fabulous CAS, fun style and she might not know it, but she's taught me so much about embracing the CAS style without the need for all that 'white space' all the time!
Now if you haven't already, might I suggest you take a trip over to visit Carly because you too will be inspired!
Oooh and seeing as this card embraces the CAS style, I'll enter it for the current challenge on Caardvarks! Expect a couple more entries for that fabby challenge *wink*
And while I'm on a challenge roll, this card should hopefully qualify for the new challenge over on Wee Memories to go CAS too!
Catch ya later!
