CASE Study #116

Happy Weekend everyone!! Per usual, it's been a busy weekend filled with soccer, parties, and craziness. I ran a local 5K this morning with my girlfriends. It's the first run I've done since I had ankle surgery to fix a running injury I sustained nearly 2 years ago. It's been a long road but I finally feel like i'm getting my fitness back together. It was a great feeling to run this morning. I have missed it SO much!

Enough chit chat...here is the inspiration for CASE Study #116...


And here is my card!


This is my first card using my Card Kitchen kit from Jillibean Soup. I was lucky enough to win a 6 month subscription to the kit during Jillibean Soup's birthday festivites last month. I'm so excited to get soup in the mail every month now! I really loved this subway art inspired die cut, so it was the first thing I used from the kit.


I don't even know how much it resembles the inspiration card. I was helping my daughter with her own mixed media project at the same time and was getting distracted. But I like how it turned out. I do love the fall colors and the wood tree is a great embellie.

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend...thanks for stopping by!!
