CASE-ing the Catty Challenges

Woah there! You are NOT dreaming...I've made a card...AND I'm posting it here! The sky is falling, the sky is little chicken, RUN!! It has been SO long since I last posted that I can't remember how anything in here works (it has taken me about two hours to get the photos sorted...UGH)...but that is all kinda irrelevant because it is unlikely that anyone even checks this poor old blog I figure I'll have some time to work it all out again, by myself :-).

I guess I'd better tell you WHY I got all motivated to post! I have found a fun new challenge blog, and given that I've been pretty much without crafting mojo for, oh let's see.....a year, this particular challenge blog seemed appropriate to me....
Cool hey?! Check the blog out here. I thought that I could make the image above link direct to the blog...but that seems to be information that my brain-drive deleted some time in the last 12 months... The challenges have not technically started, but no harm in getting warmed up and ready hey? besides, I had to find the floor of the craft room, do a bit of cleaning up and sorting of stuff, work out which of my ink and card stock colours were no longer current (OMG what a SHAMBLES) etc. etc. before I could start playing.

Anyoo...I've made tentative steps in the right direct and have managed to create a small offering that I'm not too ashamed of. This card has been inspired by the one on page 128 of the 2014-2015 Inspire Create Share Catty. BEHOLD.... with GAS here!!.....Even managed to upload the pics without frying a circuit. Happy days! Now, if I can just work out what I used to make it...
