Hey Sweetie!


Well what a busy season Christmas proves to be, I'm so sorry that the blog has to take a bit of a back seat amongst the chaos of Christmas shopping, Christmas meals, Christmas drinks, Christmas card making, Christmas wrapping etc.....

Anyways, I was s'posed to upload this card the minute I arrived back from a fabulous weekend in London but after a 4 hour train journey home, the only thing I could do was eat and sleep in a zombiefied state LOL! Still, better late than never eh?!
This was a card I made for my fabulous new buddy, Caryn! I had the pleasure of being in Caryn's company the other weekend (that I'm still recovering from!) and tried my best to send a quick card for her Bday before I left for the weekend!
Again, I attempted a bow on that darned single sided polka dot ribbon! I'm not so scared of bows now, though I do spend soooooo long trying to perfect it that it takes longer than the rest of the card takes to make LOL!

Card Recipe
Stamps: My Favouite Things - What's up Cupcake?
Ink: Memento Black
Card: DCWV
Accessories: Promarkers, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Polka Dot Ribbon (from stash)
Anyways, that's it from me! Short and sweet! Hope y'all having a fab week so far - we're half way through, woo hoo!
Catch ya later!

Hiya Aimes,

What lovely looing buns you have today LOL! no seriously gorgeous :D I love your colouring too, I can almost reach out and take one off the stand.

I know what you men about bows too - so frustrating is it left over right or the other way - I never get it right - your is looking good though :D

Take care :D
