Taking the berry (in small doses!)...


Happy weekend! I'm popping by today to share a card with ya before I have to do a mad dash around the house on a cleaning frenzy; then make myself look presentable, before having my guy's parents over in a couple of hours. I'd love to say that I'm a domestic goddess and that I've already prepared a culinary feast, but I'll 'fess up: we're planning to go and have Sunday lunch elsewhere (beats the washing up created by cooking at home, right?!)

Anyways, back to what I'm here for:

Grateful for you

This card is for our current challenge on A Passion for Papertrey. It's a colour based challenge in which we wanna see you use peach, green, brown (and any neutrals) on your creations. Yup - I did freak a li'l when I had to face my all-time dreaded colour, Melon Berry *shudder* but I have to say I'm getting better at working with it (in small doses and combined with green!)

We'd love to see you join in the fun with us. You don't need to have the PTI coloured cardstock on hand to play along, any equivalent will do - just be sure to have one Papertrey Ink product on your creation for it to qualify.

Right then, must dash as times-a-tickin...

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Catch ya later!

I think your card is beautiful Aimes, especially the colors and the chevrons. What a way to face your fear.

ya know, Duchess...part of being a domestic goddess is knowing the best places to eat ;) I also like having what I don't make at home :) Now, this card is your signature style and I LOVE it!! That berry frame is making me smile!! Now you know I love me some melon berry so that might just be your first martini here...hmmm...I'll work on that one :) Think of watermelon or cantaloupe :) We have the house with wireless and really good cable right now...why aren't I there! LOL
