'chair-ishing' the holidays!


Happy Tuesday!!!! I'm so happy that school's out for summer; 6 long weeks of pure inky-ness (oh and a few boring household chores too, but let's not think about them!)

Well I didn't waste anytime getting creative and yesterday spent hours creating a tip in my crafty corner - it's all part of the creative process in my book ;D

Today I'm featuring not one, but TWO cards. Well it's the same card but using a different colour but that still counts as two right?

chairish cards

These cards are for our new challenge on our PTI blog; the theme is friendship. I have to say that this theme is totally appropriate for both Kate and I seeing as we spent this past weekend together in person along with our other crafty friends Caryn and Steph. We shopped til' we dropped, chatted non-stop and finally managed to see Eclipse at the cinema! It's rare I get weekends like that so I really treated myself both with food and clothes shopping *wink*! Needless to day, gotta work off the treats in the gym for the next 6 weeks now LOL!

Full deets and a couple more pics of these cards are over here if you're interested! Oh and there's a rather funny pic of Kate and I on our weekend together posing in matching tops we were trying on during our girly shopping spree! Oooh and you know that if you live in Europe and play along with our challenge, you could be the lucky recipient of the sweet lil' PTI stamp set, Fly Away!

So don't delay, play along today!

Catch ya later!

These are gorgeous honey - think I may case them if that's okay, although how you managed to stamp that sentiment so perfectly is beyond me....bit too fiddly for me maybe....I'll let you know how I get on! xxx

Aimes I totally adore these sweet little cards, I love your colour combos and the brown on craft looks really great!
I'd love to know how to tie such gorgeous bows! Maybe a tutorial for APFP? I know everyone can do it but not me :(
