Challenge #83

Hi friends of TIME OUT!

We have a new challenge for you and this time it's one of our "CASE with Your Own Twist" challenges. You are probably familiar with CASEing but if not, CASE stands for 

"Copy and Share Everything".

At TIME OUT we are happy to see your own style in the cards, hence the "Your Own Twist". Our goal is that you'll be inspired and will have fun!

We are CASEing a card by amazingly talented Hannelie from Desert Diva. Her unique clean and simple cards often have elements from both digital and traditional card making and are always stunning! We could not be more thrilled to CASE Hannelie! Before checking out her card, let's read her greetings to TIME OUT.

I am a South-African living in the United Arab Emirates , city of Abu Dhabi,  for the last 9 years .We moved to this part of the world because of a job opportunity that was offered to my husband. I started blogging soon after we moved here... hence the title of my blog!
Living so far away from my loved ones, made me realise how much I love them. Card making helps me cope with being far away from home, and challenges my right brain, since I am a left brained, logical and analytical pharmacist at heart! 

Graphic, bold and creative are words I come across when people describe my style.

I am so exited to join the Time Out team as guest designer for their CASE the Designer challenge! Such an honor! I can't wait to see what you create and really hope my card will spark your creativity!

Now, the card by Hannelie that we are to CASE:

Swooon! So many ways to be inspired here: the layout, the black and white flower, the gorgeous sunset colors, the splatters, the patterns... You name it! Thank you so much Hannelie for inspiration! 

This challenge is sponsored by Happy Little Stampers, yay! Our winner, voted by the DT, will receive a 15 $ voucher to their store HERE. Thank you so much Happy Little Stampers!

Let's see how our inspiring guest designer Susanne from Keep In Touch Cards and our regular design team members have been inspired. We'd love you to visit Susanne and all our designers for more details of their projects!

Wonderful work from everyone! Now it's your turn to take TIME OUT and CASE Hanneli. This challenge runs until 5 pm BST on Wednesday 25th of May. Happy crafting!
