Missing: Party Invite!


Happy Tuesday! (It's pretty late over here but it's still Tuesday!) hope you all had a super duper weekend! Ours was pretty fabulous filled with some fun memories to treasure from a fantastic wedding we attended down in Devon (yup - that's one fun road-trip to endure from Sheffield! Good job I can read whilst travelling and can even read a map when needed after taking the wrong turn on the motorway *wink*)

After such fun, I'm now playing catch-up on all the things I normally do at the weekend including catching up in Blogland and also finding time for an inky session. But seeing as we're already on Tuesday (nearly Wednesday!) I figured I could cheat a li'l and share a project with you that you'll find in the August 2011 issue of CARDS:

This project was yet another naughty li'l one that decided to dictate its own destination once it was in the post - I wonder if some random, confused stranger ended up with the original party invite - ha!

The actual project photographed is another one I had to create during the chaos of moving house. I actually started to debate whether it was worth the effort of rooting through all those boxes again trying to find my supplies and working on the world's smallest workspace to create it again followed by sitting with everything crossed that it would not only reach it's correct destination, but would reach it on an extremely tight deadline when posting from the other side of the pond...

....but, now I see it in print it was definitely worth the effort :) Thanks so much to CARDS magazine for not only publishing my work but for being super understanding when yet another one of my projects was naughty in the post!

That's all from me for now - this gal's got a lot of catching up to do and not only on Google Reader but in her crafting corner studio too :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Catch ya later!

Oh, that must have been a little stressful for you! But so worth the extra effort - it's beautiful!

Lindsay said...

Wow! I can't even entertain the idea of one of my projects lost in the mail, I believe I would faint and then to have to remake it while trying to move? You have my total respect! It is a gorgeous tag by the way, looove it!

What a great design and interpretation. It could be used for so many occasions. I'm envious of your talent -- once again. I'm so happy you got published, but what an ordeal. It was meant to be.

Jess said...

You come up with the most eye-catching colour combos Aimes. You really are an artist!

I SO admire your determination to get that done in the midst of moving. I couldn't do it!

Laurie said...

Congrats girly!! This is gorgeous! I love the color combo here too!!

Julie said...
