Hello to all of you that love to take TIME OUT to craft. We know you enjoy and little challenge to inspire you and we are hoping this week we are going to do just that!

It is time for our 'Inspired by Words' challenge and we decided to go all thespian and use a quote from Shakespeare's play 'Twelfth Night'

'If music be the food of love play on'

For this challenge you can use the whole phrase to create your project or just pick on one or more words. For example you might choose to use food, love or perhaps music. How about combining 2 of the with love, love with music? The possibilities are endless.

For this challenge we are joined by the very creative Rosemary, our Guest Designer. Check out her blog Hey There...rosigirl, we guarantee you will be inspired!

And now lets take a look at what Rosemary and the DT have created to inspire you:

Challenge #12 CASE With Your Own Twist

 Hello you all who like to take TIME OUT and craft!
We have another CASE With Your Own Twist Challenge for you... And the designer we are CASEing is AnitaWe are thrilled to have Anita providing us inspiration... But before looking at her card, let's read her greetings!

Hello ... bonjour ... I’m Anita in France ... and I’m blessed to live in beautiful south west France.  I’ve crafted in one way or another since I can remember and got seriously into card making nearly two years ago, when I started my blog.  My style is mainly clean and simple ... sometimes quirky, sometimes graphic, occasionally whimsical.  I’m thrilled and honoured to be contributing a card to be CASEd at Time Out this week ... and am so looking forward to seeing how it inspires you!  Can’t wait to see you in Monsieur Linky’s gallery!  

Now, the card we are CASEing... Here it is! 

You can be inspired for example of the layout, the colors, the techniques Anita used, the white space, the die cut sentiment... Many possibilities! Don't forget to read all the card details from Anita's blog My Papercraft World and leave her some love. :)

Let's see how our DT members and our very talented Guest Designer Shona from Twine Around have CASEd and Twisted Anita's card. 


Now it's your turn! We are pretty relaxed here at TIME OUT but please check out the rules from the sidebar before linking up your card. The challenge runs until Wed 27th of of August 5 pm BST. I hope to see you taking TIME OUT and CASEing Anita!
