Happy, Happy, Happy


Happy, happy weekend! It's a soggy one here today, but the optimist in me is thinking it's the perfect excuse to stay in and get inky *grin*

I'm sharing a card today that you can find a much better picture of in Card Creations 9! If you haven't got a copy of this issue it's a must have - so much inspiration on every page!

Happy Birthday

I was so happy when this special issue arrived on my doorstep to find that I'm sharing a page with Carly Robertson! I love her style and she's a super sweet person too. It's such an honour to see my card next to hers and on the pages of an issue that's oozes fabulous cards by some of my favourite designers!

Before I go, it's my final day as a featured artist over on Inspired by... Thanks so much to Jill for inviting me over! I've had so much fun! Be sure to check it out if you can: Jill's cards are fabulous!

Right, I've gotta grab some dinner - I'm starving!

Catch ya later!

Hey there Aimes...we're having the same weather as you. First baseball game of the day has been cancelled and Pat has gone out to check the fields for the next two.

Love this card...I can never line up the stamps well enough when duplicating them like you do!

Did you see the PTI announcement about the day in Cincinnati? You need to come! Moe is coming and staying at my house! Wish you could come too!!!

oh, my...this is soooo fabulous!! I do love me some purple! Congrats on the publication!! Will have to check out that issue and tell everyone in the checkout line up that I know you! I was up at the house yesterday and the second/main floor was getting blocked out. It really made me excited!! And you now that I'm thinking of you when I create the "guest" stamping spot :) I see Lynn told you our plans for next month! I just need to renew my passport and hope that Air Canada doesn't go on strike! hugs!! now back to report cards.

I loved this card when I saw it in the magazine - it is perfect. I have always considered this PTI birthday stamp set and every time I see you use it, I want it even more! x

Could you send some rain our way? Holy cow, it's dry here in TN. It makes me long for the rainy weather in Atlantic Canada :)
Your card is GORGEOUS! I love those colors! The purple is DREAMY (I sound like a teenager!). Congrats on the pub!!!

F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S Aimes, well done you! You so deserve to be sharing pages with these fab designers as you are right up there with them girl!

This is a great, great card, no wonder it was picked :)
