No rounded corners...

Happy Saturday, Peeps!

So the first week back at work is over and it feels like I've never been away! Shame I had to get a horrid cold though that started even before I headed back on Monday! It was an experience to remember to have no voice on the first day with the students! LOL!

But enough sniffling, coughing and spluttering from me; I have a card to share:

I'm thinking of giving this for my nephew's birthday (he'll be 11) but not sure if that flourish is too girly....mind you, do most 11 year old boys notice anything about cards?! Surely it's all about the present, right?!

I can't claim credit for the layout of this card, it was CASED from a creation from Mariana Grigsby! It's definitely a layout I'll be using again - I love it!

Oh, and if you're wondering why there are no rounded corners on this card; my corner punch died on me :o( I know this card is begging for some rounded corners but lucky for me, the tragedy gave me the perfect excuse to buy a Corner Chomper! Now if I manage to break that baby, I know I've done something horribly wrong! LOL!


P.S The deadline for payment for our PTI Make and Take was yesterday. As we're ordering the supplies we'll need today, we really require your payment if you haven't paid yet! Thank you to those of you who have paid! x x

I absolutley adore this card! The color combo is FAB! Did you cut those stars out by hand or do you have the punch? They look perfect!! Love this!

This is great!! I love your version! And, I don't think it is missing any rounded corners at all! I think it looks great just the way it is!

It's a fab Aimes but I fear you are right about the birthday boy only being interested to see if there is cash inside (how do I know!) - but you'll love the corner chomper - I love mine.
