Challenge #96

Hi Everyone,

Time for us to start a new challenge and this time it is our:

CASE with your own twist challenge.

CASE means 'copy and share everything'. Basically you look at our CASE card and see what inspires you to create and then just add your own little twist.

We are so excited that this time we have the absolute delight of CASEing Michele. Many of you will know Michele from blogland but just in case you don't...take a look at her blog I Card Everyone. It is full of inspiring cards. Michele is a regular player at Time Out and we are honoured she is our CASE designer for this challenge. Thank you Michele, you are a star x

Let's see what Michele has to say before we see her amazing card:


Thank you to the Time Out team for this honor! It is PERFECT that they’ve asked me for a Thank You card... my favorite to make, and send!
Home, in my craft room, is truly where my heart is happiest - unless I’m on another fabulous road trip with my husband! I’m so lucky he will stop and meet a blogging friend along the way! Seven down, hundreds to go!!

Here is the card Michele has created for us to CASE.

'Wow!' we can here you say, isn't it a stunner!

This challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Sponsors with a $15 gift voucher to spend in their wonderful store
