Party Time!


Hoooooooray for the weekend! :)

I'm in a party mood not only because it's the weekend, but if you didn't know already - and I think you must have been hiding under a rock if you don't know! - but it's party time for one of my favourite stamping companies. One of the factors that had me hook, line and sinker for my downward spiral into my inky addiction: Papertrey Ink!

I urge you to join in the celebrations too! Today, Nichole Heady (one of my stamping idols!) is asking us to share our very favourite project featuring PTI goodies from the last year and I fancied joining in the fun.

Can you guess which project I picked? Well I'm impressed that I kinda narrowed it down to one: I love different projects for different reasons but this one really made me squeal with joy:

chairish cards

And of course - I couldn't resist making a green version *grin*

Chair-ish trio close up

....and I was even lucky enough to have one of these picked up by CARDS magazine for the Jan 2011 issue - thanks CARDS Magzine!

Why on earth did they not pick the green one?! *wink*

Right, I'm still catching up on my Google Reader after a crazy, super busy week so I'm hoping to get a good mojo boost from y'all for my inky time that I've scheduled in for tomorrow. Yup - so busy now that I actually have to pencil inky time in my organiser *sigh* Here's to counting down to half-term in a couple of weeks time :D

Catch ya later!

I love these cards. They are simple, yet elegant--and bright colors, be still my heart...

Rhonda said...

One of my favorites too, Aimes! Perfectly tied bows and polka dots. Can't wait to see what you make tomorrow.

I remember this one, this was a great project and I like the fact you couldn't hold yourself back and made it in more colors, don't you just love seeing a pretty creation in different hues? Happy partying!

Maureen said...

I am loving these all over again!! Love seeing them all together...and I have to laugh when they didn't pick your favourite green!! They rarely pick my fav either...same with Moxie Fab!! They picked a card that wasn't even photographed well!! LOL But I'm not complaining!! Loved seeing it in the mag too :) We are CARDS buddies!! Hugs to you and I hope you double booked yourself for that inky date ;)

Oh how could anyone forget these little beauties and look at my little girl there up on the old cards magazine - whooohoooo! They are worthy of nothing less than their fame :D

Andrea M said...

I loved these cards the first time I saw them! Gorgeous!!! And the green one is just as lovely as the pink one for sure ;) Although, I don't know how you managed to narrow down your card selection - so much fabby PTI eye candy on your blog!
