Surprise Mid-Week Post!


Well if this works, then I've managed to successfully schedule a post on Blogger - woo hoo! It should be Wednesday 5th August 2009 and I should be enjoying the sun by the seaside or wading through floods (probably the latter!) If this doesn't work btw, I'm totally blaming Blogger ;D

I tried desperately to have a little play with my new PTI goodies before I went away. I didn't think Chris' family would appreciate me locking myself away, crafting and being highly unsociable LOL!

So I thought I'd share a card with you that I made for my dear bloggin buddy (and buddy in general!) Steph just before I went away. I actually think she was probably more interested in the contents of the card (a cheque with some money I owed her!) rather than the card itself LOL!
I'm in love with the new On My Couch and On My Couch Additions sets - they're just adorable and the perfect chance to play fabric designer! The images are just perfect for using those scraps of card/dp up that you know you've been saving for some future project.

I just know Steph is a huge fan of Raspberry Fizz (aren't we all?) so there was no question what colour this chair was gonna be!

Don't ya just love the sentiment/sayings too? So different but so true! I also decorated the inside of the card too - well it would have been rude not to. The chair is made from the cutting of my homemade damask dp - just scrummy!Card Recipe
Stamps: On My Couch, On My Couch Additions, Damask Designs
Ink: Memento Black, Raspberry Fizz
Card: Hibiscus Burst, Stampers Select White, True Black
Accessories: Button (Basic Grey), Raspberry Fizz Polka Dot Ribbon (I used the other side!), Martha Stewart Border Punch

I hope you like it! I'm thinking of making a set of these cards and then maybe, just maybe, downloading this Lauren Meader Template to keep them in. Sounds kinda ambitious I know but I might be up for the challenge...

Well this is a kinda quick and short post as I really do need to get packing - we're setting off in an hour and I've not even made a list yet! ARGH! So I'm gonna love ya and leave ya!

Catch ya later! (when I'm really back and can catch up with y'all in here in Blogland!)

LOVE the color combo and how you curved the sentiment around your FAB chair! Hope you are not completely soaked and are enjoying your time away! :D

Kate Lewis said...

Hi honey, really hope you're sunbathing and not wading through puddles on your hols! What a fab FAB card this is - I'm totally in love with this set too! Love your layout, so pleasing to the eye:) And how clever to bend the sentiment around the circle, I think Steph might even love the card more than the cheque lol! Have fun and can't wait to have you back in blogland!! K xxx

YAY Aimes, your scheduled post worked :) Great card, Steph will love this. I think that Timeless Template would look lovely with your cards inside. Take the plunge!

Hope you're having a great week there.

Hi Holiday Aimes :D

I thought something was up when you posted at 7.00 am this morning LOL but Mr Blogger is working fine. Awh I love this stamp set, it was a real toss up between this one and the button one for me. I wish I had gone for this one now after seeing your gorgeous card hee hee.
I love the way you have made your own dp then stamped the setee (I'm not posh enough for couch) onto it.

Here's hoping you are having the best time and I will catch you on the flip side :D
