Hello London!

We left last Wednesday for our camping trip and had an amazing holiday! I'm back home now and am heading into work for the morning. Although I am blessed with summers off, I'm starting a new job (yay!!) in September and am heading in for a team planning session. I've been hired as an Accessibility Advisor at our local university and am beyond thrilled to have been chosen for this position.

As it's Wednesday, it's time for a new challenge over at Little Red Wagon. Heather is our hostess this week and she's challenged us to "CASE a card". Basically, this means that we're asking you to copy the work of somebody who has inspired you (but please remember to give credit to the original creator).

Here's the original card (below), created by Kimberly Crawford. Like Kimberly, I used MFT's London Mouse stamp set and simply stamped most images in black ink. I cut and coloured the postbox and popped it on my card in front of the other images. I then used a "Hello" stamp (retired from My Craft Spot) to finish things off. 

Please head over to Little Red Wagon to see what the rest of the Girlfriends have created! We'd love for you to use this opportunity to CASE the work of somebody who inspires you! Once you've written your post, please link up over on the LRW blog.

Hi Kate, just popped in to say a BIG thank you for the correction, sometimes looking at things, you don't SEE them, so I am glad I can correct it BEFORE it goes out. Thanks again. MUCH appreciated.
