Boxes, Boxes, Boxes.....


So I've totally remembered why I don't move so much - I hate it! LOL!

I'm itching to be settled and unpacked, but with being back at work it looks like we've got a few fun weekends planned ahead emptying boxes and finding places for things to go. Mind you, I'm taking a trip to the Hobbycrafts event at Birmingham NEC on Saturday, and we're off to pick up our shiny new car on Sunday so I guess that really is a fun weekend ahead for me! I suppose I've no idea when I'll get around to unpacking boxes then; but don't worry though - I've got my eye on my inky supplies box to be unpacked first *wink*

So what can I share with ya if my supplies are still imprisoned in boxes?! How about a card that I was fortunate enough to have published in the February issue of CARDS magazine (Thanks, CARDS!)

This is a super mini-card and probably uses the most buttons I've ever used on such a small card!

I hope this card will suffice for now! Here's hoping that I can get those inky supplies freed sooner rather than later!

Apologies for being slightly MIA in Blogland, I'll be back as soon as I can! Thank you so much for still stopping by here :)

Catch ya later!

Oh Amy, moving is the biggest pain and I'm so sorry you are in the throngs of it. Hang in there!
Your tiny card is just marvelous. I love the leaf stamped pattern on the yellow strip...

So much to say! Congrats on the shiny new car, I enjoy the new car smell so much! And moving and packing boxes, no, that is so not fun especially when you don't have enough shelves or places to put things! The card is soooo cute and well deserved a spot in the magazine! Can we say 'we knew you when?' :)

Ann said...

Awesome card! Love the colors & the buttons!

Hope you are all settled soon! Moving stinks, but just think of your new place when it's all done!

Happy weekend! :D

Both times that I have moved, I have unpacked my craft stuff first (and that includes the move with the 2-yr old... :-0 !) It just settled me in - a bit like buttering a cat's paws I believe !!

God luck with the unpacking - and congrats on the published card !

Hope you've had a fab weekend Aimes and the un packing can wait a bit longer!
Congrats on your card being published! It's so cute too!
Love it :)
Hugs, Katie x

Sue Lelli said...

Amy. so glad I saw this FAB card! CONGRATS on the pub! LOVE all the buttons and the design of your card! Good luck with the unpacking!

Nerina said...

What a wonderful, happy, sunshiney card this is Aimes - and until you mentioned it, I didn't notice the number of buttons because the balance is so spot on!! I hope that you can make sense of the boxes and find those inky ones soon!! Withdrawl can be painful :0)!!
