CASE study #25, welcoming a new Muse!

Hello and welcome back for another week at CASE study!

I am writing this with a heavy heart and my mind in North Queensland, over night cyclone Yasi (category 5)hit the area.  Thankfully there has been no reported loss of life, just lots of damage to homes, buildings and the environment. 
There has not been alot of news coverage of the hardest hit areas so far, the news crews are still trying to gain access, as you can imagine the roads are littered with trees and live powerlines.
My heart goes out to those affected directly and those who lived through the night with howling winds (around 300km p/h), you are in my thoughts and prayers.  I am praying that the loss of life stays at zero, everything else can be replaced over time, but people can't!
To Judith, Tony, Brett and their families,  I trust you are all safe and hope to hear from you soon!

We welcome our new Muse for the month of February, the marvellous Eva from 'For the Love of Life', we are in for a fabulous and inspiring February!

Oh wow, lovely, I enjoy the challenge so much and really hope that I can play along again this week!

That image is beyond adorable and wonderfully coloured, Sue!! Love the cork mat in the BG and the colours you used too. Great card!

Do you know how Cairns made out against Yasi?! Keesh is in that area and we aren't getting much coverage as the mid US got DUMPED on with snow and it's the big weather news up here.
