Goin' Dotty...

Hey!

Happy Tuesady! How's your week going? I've finally persuaded my guy to take this week off work just so I have some company during the looooooong days I have alone so I'll keep this short and sweet :D

Firstly, thanks so much for your well wishes for my dad! I can report with positive news that he's due home today - yay! Fingers crossed anyways...

OK onto the card! Well this card is for our new challenge on our PTI blog. We wanna see your creations featuring dots...and before you even suggest it, no, I didn't use Polka Dot Basics II or the dotty chair from On My Couch for this challenge!


Nope, I finally broke out my Beautiful Blooms DP! This card was for Chris' parents and because it was being hand delivered I could add dimension to my heart's content - cue the foam pads and ribbon! I know it's a pretty simple design - but that paper is so bold that I felt I couldn't add much more to it before getting a headache LOL!

So as always, I'm hoping you can play along too - get dotty and use just one PTI product on your creation to enter!! If you live within Europe you could be the lucky winner of PTI's Anniversary Set, Round and Round!

Catch ya later!

OH, I love these bold polka dots :) Okay, but did you suggest polka dots for the challenge? LOL Love the border punch!!! Is that the one from my blog candy? If so, I'm so glad you are able to use it :) Have fun with Chris...I spent 7 hours unpacking yesterday and was a little "fried" after...the retired teacher left about 7 boxes of things I might like...ugh!!! So I had to deal with that mess along with my own!! Back today for a few more hours and then off to a 3 day teaching conference out of town with some colleagues...catch up with you on the weekend...stay out of trouble!!! LOL

Ooh, fun card! Love how the polkas can be seen, but not heard so much that they overpower the design. Great touch of ribbon too.

Love it Aimes! Just enough embellishments to make a bold statement, but not overdone. Super card!

Cute card Aimes, what a unique image I've never seen it before and it goes so well with those dots.
I hope you were able to bring your Dad home today for some TLC. Wishing you and Chris some fun packed days together :)
