Thank You (for the holidays!) :)

Hey!

WA-HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! School's finished for Christmas!!!! I think I'm still a little high on a sugar-rush after joining in the festivities with my students in true style by eating waaaaaaaaaay too many sweeties so excuse my over-use of capitals and exclamation marks in this post!!! :)

Now before I settle in under my snuggly blanket with my G&T, I just had to play along with the fabulous new Runway Inspired Challenge. It's led by one seriously fabulous (and super sweet) gal, Jennifer Rzasa and boy, oh boy, has she got one jaw-droppingly talented DT! Some of my most admired stampers feature on it!

The deal of the challenge this week is to be inspired by this runway pic from the Versace Spring 2012 collection:

I was taken with that gorgeous shade of yellow, the detail on that dress (that I would love to own myself!), the illuminated runway and the circular element at in the background.

Here's what a quickly whipped up, totally inspired and itching to play along!

thank you

It's a super small 3x3 card...I'm thinking I need to do something differently with it but time is against me, (my daylight has gone for today *sniff* however, I'm sat with fingers crossed that Santa brings me a photo tent complete with daylight lamps for future photography sessions *wink*)

Thanks so much for stopping by this li'l hyperactive corner of Blogland today! I'm off now to get that much-deserved G&T :)

Have a super duper weekend (and if like me, you too have finished work for the year I hope you kick off your holidays in style!)

Catch ya later!

Gorgeous CAS card Amy - perfect interpretation on the fab inspiration pic!
Wishing you a relaxing holiday - get stuck in with the G&Ts and I'd love to har if you get that photo stent. I've asked Santa to bring me money to put towards one myself! Rx

Emma said...

Hiya Aimes,

Alas not a flake her in windy Wales! hee hee. As always your clean and simple style gives us way more than any other could - gorgeous work!

Ooh you will have to let me know if Santa brings you a photo tent - would love one of those. But I do know that he is delivering a little something to your Mum's address - *winka-dee-wink*

Big hugs,

Emmax

LUCKY YOU! Here we don't finish schoolterm till Wednesday next week )-: But I promise I will kick off my holiday break in style then - if I have the energy - it's been my toughest term since I started teaching 15 years ago!!! And do you want to hear about that - I guess -NO!!!
What I came here to say was - GREAT card!
Enjoy your days off!/ Karin

Lucky you with being off! Here in Ontario, Canada, we're teaching right up to the 23rd!!! But we don't go back until the 9th--so I'm hoping for lots of crafty time in the first week of the new year! Enjoy the holidays!!

Oh Aimes you've totally rocked the Versace trademark! The shade is gorgeous -just like that dress!

Aimes...such a perfect little thank you note! I'm glad you told me it was 3x3, because when I first looked at it, I was imagining it as larger! I love the white panel down the middle with the circular image. I'm so glad you chose to play along with our first challenge!!

Jenny said...
