I'm On Team EdCob!


Phew what a crazy couple of days! So sorry I've kinda abandoned Blogland but I've been off having so much fun at Steph's along with Kate and Caryn, as well as meeting so many lovely fellow stampers at Steph's PTI Make and Take! Honestly, I feel truly blessed to have made such fabulous friends! I can't remember the last time I had so much fun! Not only the crafting, but the girly giggles and a trip to the flicks too! (BTW, New Moon is just about the most awesome film EVER! So fab to see a film with fellow Twi-hards, though I have to confess that I'm on Team EdCob - I'm the kinda gal who likes to have her cake and eat it LOL!)

I've also got some pics to share from our wonderful weekend, but haven't had the chance to inspect and take the pics of me out upload 'em yet! If you can't wait til then, take a peek at Steph's, Kate's or Caryn's pics - they're fabulous!

Now I did do some crafting last week, but that was for a PTI ATC swap so I can't share that with you yet, but I do have a card for our current challenge on APFP:

Recipe: Stamps - Holiday Tree/Signature Christmas Ink - Aqua Mist/Spring Moss/Dark Chocolate/Pure Poppy Card - Stamper's Select White/Aqua Mist/Pure Poppy/Rustic Snowflake DP Other - Nestabilities/Martha Stewart Border Punch/Pure Poppy Polka Dot Ribbon

This challenge is to feature a Christmas tree on your creations. Kate and I are hoping that some of you are bound to do this at some point in the next two weeks so participation in the challenge will be easy peasey lemon squeezy LOL!

Now the bow on this card is courtesy of Caryn who had the patience of a saint trying to teach me how to tie one! I just added to the difficulty by using single-sided polka dot ribbon LOL! Caryn, hope I've done you proud ;D

So we'd love it if you shared your creations with us over on APFP. Your creations needs only one PTI product on it to qualify and if you live within Europe, you could be the lucky winner of some PTI goodies :D

Right then, I'm off to catch up on everything I've missed in Blogland! Dunno when I'll get a chance to craft next as work is totally manic and I'm off to London this weekend! It's all go, go, go! When will it be craft, craft, craft I wonder...?

Catch ya later!

Aimes, I love this card and you did a splendid job with the bow! And yes... I HATE tying bows with one-sided dotted ribbon. Why won't they invent ONLY two-sided dotted ribbon. ;) Beautiful card! Love the color choices!

Val said...

Aimes, your card is so cute. I agree, I love that little tree as well. Great job and great color combination.

Maureen said...

Ah, wouldn't it be great if we could make a living at crafting? But then we probably wouldn't enjoy it as much :) I LOVE this card!! That ribbon is are a very good student because it is very difficult to get that polkadotted ribbon going the right way!! It sounds like your weekend was a blast...I'm a little jealous and wished I was there too! :D

Hi Aimes,
I'm so glad you had a great time at Steph's, from the pictures i've seen it looks like it was loads of fun.
I love this card and i think the bow is perfect - you've done a great job.
Take Care Hun - Ju xxx

Glad you had a fabulous weekend Aimes, it was great to meet you!

Adorable card, Aimes! I hope I`ll find someone to babysit so I can watch New Moon soon.... sigh


Alison said...

So, Team Edcob eh? LOL That is too funny and I'm adopting that phrase, too. I'm currently obsessed with, finding scrummy photos of them both to put onto my phone! So sad...

Lovely card, love that ribbon, it's good enought o eat!

IamDerby said...

I am a huge twilight fan and you would not believe how long it took me to figure out EdCob! LOL! New Moon was awesome... i saw it twice... id go again...shhhhhh

Your card is fabulous! Love your bow!

Caryn said...

Firstly, thank you so much for this beautiful card sweetie, it's stunning. I got it yesterday but this is the first chance I've had to get time to say THANKS!! I've just got back from the Lakes after clearing out our flooded apartment - it was horrific. We did manage to salvage a fair bit so it could have been worse. All I can smell now is foostiness!!!!

By the way, the bow looks fantastic - single-sided ribbons are always a dexterity challenge!! I am VERY proud of you :0)

Oh, and Team EdCob - me too!!!! Drool!
