I don't care if Monday's blue...


Monday already. Where did my weekend go?!

Couldn't resist using the lyrics from one of my favourite songs ever (Friday I'm in Love - The Cure) to suit a card of mine I should have probably shared ages ago!

Blue Skies Ahead 4U

Now Gallery Idol 2012 has been and gone, (HUGE congrats to the well deserved winner, Joscelyne Cutchens and a big shout out to my fellow UK peeps, Aga and Taheerah who made the Top 10!) and after making the final last year, I figured I'd enter again with this card. It's a punny take on the very popular Pantone trend.

Needless to say, I didn't make it past the open auditions round this time around. I was very happy to see 20 very talented ladies shine with their creativity and have myself cheer from the sidelines instead. In fact, half of me is glad I never made it further as memories of the stress and pressure of last year's competition came flooding back to me - LOL!

Still, nothing ventured, nothing gained. That's a motto I live by and one that's bagged me some fabulous adventures in the process :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Catch ya later!

oh, so clever, Aimes!! They were just giving everyone else a chance this year without having your talent to scare them away. You know you are the Duchess forever! And don't think I didn't notice the "Pun"tone! LOL GENIUS once again :) Hey, did you print out the senitment? AH, the first Monday morning of the summer, so I'm loving Mondays now ;)

Brilliant card Aimes, just the sort of uplifting sky we had this morning but it soon disappeared!! and love me a bit of Robert Smith too.
After watching how you were put through your paces last year I didn't enter at all this year...too much pressure for me :0)

I absolutely love this! Any thoughts for a Puntone series? I always enjoy reading names of paints – even if I might not like the color, the name is often interesting!

I'm staring at my Pantone Books as I type this. This card is unbelievably so cute and fun. The message is perfect!
