Home Sweet Home

Hey!

Happy Wednesday! We're nearly there, Peeps! I can see the weekend approaching, and a fabulous Bank Holiday one at that for us - woo hoo!!! Phew! Work has just been manic this week so I'll be grateful for a few days to catch up with everything!

Anyways, enough of my busy week, how about a card?

I made this quite a while ago for my partner in PTI crime, Kate! It took ages to go through the post, I've no idea why but it delayed me in posting it up here and then I kinda forgot about it hiding in my documents!
Card Recipe
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Daily Designs/Daily Designs Sentiment/Polka Dot Basics II
Ink: Versamark/Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate/Aqua Mist/Raspberry Fizz/Kraft
Accessories: Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz Grosgrain Ribbon/Martha Stewart Border Punch/Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Promarkers


Needless to say I always turn to Aqua Mist for my buddy, but now I'm thinking I may have to turn to Hawaiian Shores for her...or maybe both?! LOL!

This was made before my guilty crafty indulgence of a fab apron-lace border punch...to create my punched edges for this card, I used my trusty dotted scalloped border punch and aligned the dots right up to the edge of the Aqua Mist cardstock. It gives a kinda apron-lace effect though it's no substitute for the real deal ;D

Hope y'all having a fab week so far...thanks so much to all that have entered our current challenge so far, I'm loving your entries and hope to catch up 'properly' this weekend!
