Hello rainbow....


Well it was gonna happen one day soon......yup I'm back at work. How can two weeks fly by so quickly? I got about 3 things done on my to-do list of 100! Not complaining too much though as I'm fortunate to enjoy my job (and the holidays that come with it *wink*)

Y'know I was stamping into the small hours of this morning getting this card done. Two weeks off and in true, Aimes style I leave it all to the last minute! I swear it's the only way I can get my mojo to kick-start! So although I was kinda sleepy this morning for work, all I had to do is take one look at the card I'd created earlier that morning to wake me up:

BIG birthday wishes

I guess I'd better point out that it's super bright IRL!

This card is based on a sketch for our new challenge on our PTI Blog. You can be as flexible as you'd like with the sketch (as you've probably noticed I've done!) and you don't have to limit it to a card. That said, I actually need to build up my stash of birthday cards so I'll be making a few more of these methinks...

So you know we'd love for you to join in the fun with us too! The only requirements are that you use the sketch and at least one PTI product - be it button, ribbon, cardstock, die, stamps, you get the idea!

OK gotta scoot as I've got much beauty sleep to catch up on!

Catch ya later!
