Total Sweetness...


Happy Monday! I'm not a Monday-lovin' kinda gal but let's look on the bright side, we're one day closer to the next weekend :D

This Monday is slightly sweeter than your usual Monday as we've got a sweeeeeeeet new challenge on our PTI Blog. Why so sweet? Well check out the inspiration piccy for it:

Total sweetness

Apart from feeling the urge to eat sweet treats, I also got inky and created a card using an old set:

Thinking of you

Around & About Sentiments was my first ever PTI set I purchased. It has sentimental value to me; signifying the start of a new love affair with a new (to me!) stamp company! This ever-faithful sweet set will never fail me: it can cater for pretty much any occasion, has both sentiments and images, and is so much fun to play with every now and again!

Now I'm gonna 'fess up and let you know that this card was not the end result I was aiming for. The dropping of a Raspberry Fizz inkpad on the front of this clean, crisp, pure, white card during the making of it forced me into a change of plan! Yup, underneath that strip of ribbon is a lovely pink splodge! Ha!

Feeling the sugar rush too after that sweet pic? Well why not join us and be inspired to create something? Maybe even dig out your own older sets and see what you can come up with? You could even be super sneaky then and enter it into our challenge and the PTI Blog Hop if you act quick *wink*

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a wonderfully sweet week!

Catch ya later!

Aimes, I love how this turned out, even with the splotch you covered up! It totally looks like the ribbon should be there.

Emma said...

He sweet thing!

Simply snaffliscous, I adore the way you have placed the ribbon behind the sentiment :D

Rhonda said...

Love that you made lemonade out of lemons! The small mistake just means you get to use more ribbon!!!

Melissa said...

Perfect! Love the glossy main heart and those rows of hearts are so sweet!

So often I have to cover up smudges or misaligned sentiments...I would have never known about yours!

Heather P. said...

LOL... dropping an ink pad is something that's happened to me in the past! Love your fix!! This is FAB!

Maureen said...

I am loving the sweets!! My sweet of choice right now are licorice allsorts...Love your little ink mishap...mine usually involve black ink on my fingers and then onto my crisp clean white paper!! All done the PTI blog hop was an easy challenge...using a yet to be inked set!! Fun too as I used 3 of my 4 new sets :) Hope all is well and my Monday is half over so yours must almost be done!! Yup, Friday is one day closer!! Hugs, Mrs. Gray!! (he needs to change it to an "e"!)...or you can keep your name...I did, but I'm old and all my books say "Plut" in them!! AND, I let everyone know that there are enough Mrs. Gasparins around (teeheee!!)

Goodness, dark CHOCOLATE ribbon is the perfect addition on your 'sweet' card! Your small oops was a blessing in disguise! Very pretty card!

Beautiful CAS card! Love the rows of colored hearts!

Nerina said...

Hey, I think that the Raspberry Fizz inkpad needs an award of sorts ... because that ribbon speaks to me Aimes ... this whole card speaks to me actually, and I think it is *TOTALLY FABBY*!! It was one of those that had me smiling when it downloaded ... :0) Delish!!

Lynn said...

Well...the ribbon looks like it is right where it belongs!! I always have to remind myself to close the lids of my ink pads. I quite often lay my card on top of the ink pad...duh! Love the inspiration photo. Great card!

Andrea M said...
