Welcome back everyone 😊 I am so happy you could join me again.

When we hop with a special guest we all honour our guest by combing through their blog posts and choosing something we love of theirs and CASE it.
CASEing is where we Copy And Selective Edit. You can Copy it exactly or just edit by taking certain elements from a card design and making it your own.

Man that was hard this week, EVERYTHING on Jeanettes blog is just gorgeous!

But I did find something that really grabbed my attention.

Look at this card of Jeanettes! It is just STUNNING in it's simplicity. Jeanette has used my two current fave colours 'Lemon Lime Twist' - LLT and 'Berry Burst'- BB for her card plus it's a CAS design.
CAS is something I admire and always find hard to do.

I just had to CASE this card!

You are currently here with me Kim Oliver. This is a nlog hop, so I have listed all other participants towards the end of this post.
Here is my card.
Can you pick the elements I kept from Jeanettes original card?

You're Eclectically Lovely

Clean cards are Sooooo hard for me lol. But in saying that I think my card still has a CAS feel with it. What do you think?

 The elements I have kept from Jeanettes card are
  1. The Focal Panel.
  2. The Colour Scheme.
  3. Die cuts.
I used the 'Oh So Eclectic' bundle for my card and I was just over the moon with how it finished. When I saw this suite in the catalog I just fell in loved with it and the DSP too.
I saved %10 percent by buying this set as a bundle!!! WOW thats an awesome saving, don't you agree!.
You too can also get this AMAZING saving just by purchasing this set as a bundle  (145346)
You can get even more savings just by joining and becoming a demonstrator!

I made another card using these colours and the same bundle.

These two look so good together!
But we will chat more about the second card another day 😊
I just love how striking the two colours combined with black and white look! 
Don't you agree?
They automatically make me smile and feel happy no matter what the day has bought my way.
