Yep, I have made my first Christmas card of 2014! And, even more exciting than that, it is for the CASE Study Challenge that I have missed way too often lately!! New year, new beginning and all that...I am going to try and keep up with my favourite challenges, play along with the new ones that I've seen spring up already and try not to let any of them fall by the way side - I don't want any of them feeling left out ;)
The Muse over at CASE Study this month is the fabulous Donna Mikasa - it is almost impossible not to be inspired by her work - she's awesome! Even I, with Mr. Mojo having gone on the trot, managed to come up with a card - so for you guys it should be a breeze!
Now I don't know about you...but I'm not sure where 'CASE-ing' ends and 'copying with the materials you have' begins?! I have a feeling it's somewhere around here!! ;) I have to admit though, I didn't realise that Donna had used sequins and splatters as I didn't have the image in front of me when I was making my card so I think maybe great minds just think alike :) Mine are water splatters though rather than ink ones, so there's a difference there :)
Despite the cards being very close in nature, I still like Donna's more! I don't know, maybe mine will be a grower or maybe it's a lesson to me that I shouldn't try to craft as early in the morning as I did?!
Ah well, it's one Christmas card down for Christmas 2014 - there's only 341 days to go you know peoples!! :)
Thank you for stopping by ;)
P.S. I'm still not impressed with Blogger making my images look so grey - I can't possibly increase the exposure on my camera or on the Photoshop filter any more else it'll just be a white image!! Please Blogger...you can do this, just change the algorithm back to the way it used to be!!
