Papertrey Challenge No.4


What a gorgeous weekend we've had here - fantastic sunshine + crafting time = bliss!!

Kinda sad to be going back to work tomorrow after an amazing 2 weeks off but I'm sure I'll get back into the swing of things after a couple of days back into the hectic workplace!

So to make the most of my last day off I just had to play with some of my new crafting goodies and now I've got some PTI goodies to call my own I thought I'd play along with A Passion For Papertrey's challenge (to use scallops). In typical Aimes style I'm cutting it as close to the deadline as possible LOL!

So here's what I came up with:

I combined the PTI goodies with my new Stamp Barn set I purchased in Canada - I'm lovin' that little birdie! I'm only starting in my ever-expanding PTI goodies stash so a couple of the embellishments are from other companies but one day I'm sure I'll have quite a few more PTI goodies to create with LOL!

As I had a few scraps I decided to go to town on decorating the inside of my card.
Hope you like it and had a fabulous weekend whatever the weather! Only 5 more working days until the next weekend - yay!

Card Recpie
(All PTI unless stated!)
Stamps: The Stamp Barn: Sunshine Designs
Ink: Versamagic Chalk Ink: Aquatic Splash, Jumbo Java, Hint of Pesto
Card: Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate, White Card (Paperchase), Bitty Dot Basics - Aqua Mist and Dark Chocolate
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Ripe Avocado Ribbon, Brown Dotty Ribbon (Hobbycraft), Buttons (Basic Grey), Fabric Flower (Papermania)

On a final note: I have some pics - hurrah!! Turns out that cups of tea are the way to persuade my boyfriend to get a move on LOL! So here are a few I've selected for here - if you're interested you can check the rest out on my flickr account or facebook (I'll insert a link when I find time to upload them properly!). We took LOADS of pics so I just picked a select few to upload - I guess the same pics get quite repetitive LOL!

Firstly - Toronto at night!
Secondly, the skyline of Toronto!
Last but not least, the majestic Niagara Falls!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wow Aimes - that is such a great card. The bird is the cutest! I struggle to do this style but you've got it down to a 'T'. Fantastic photos - are you going to scrap them? They'd look great on a canvas. I'd love to visit Canada one day.
