Punching - not the violent kind!

Hey!

Well that's it. I'm back at work. The mojo has left the building - LOL! Well all good things have to come to an end, right? So it's back to work to earn the pennies for my crafting supplies. I shouldn't complain as I do love my job, I just really value my creative time too *wink*

I kinda feel like I've ended my summer holidays on a creative high though; y'see I got an email from Paper Crafts magazine asking for two of my cards for their upcoming Stamp It! magazine! Still can't quite believe that when I think of how many cards were submitted! I was still grinning from ear to ear on that news when the next day I got an email from CARDS magazine and they want one of my cards for their Feb 2010 issue! Wow! Talk about lucky! Well that's what a holiday does for the creative mojo I guess!

Anyways, lemme show you a card! We have a new challenge on our PTI blog today, and we wanna see ya 'Punch It!' Well not literally, I'm not the violent kinda gal but I do love a good ol' paper punch! My example uses not only one paper punch, but three:


Yup, it's official. I'm addicted to creating this doily, fan, thingies!

So we'd love to see your take on 'Punching it' and remember, your creation needs only one PTI product to be eligible to enter!

Right then, get used to these short and sweet posts and my advanced apologies for my lack of appearance in Blogland until the next holidays! Though I'll be constantly keeping up to date and admiring what you all create, I just might not have the chance to comment much. Hope you can forgive me!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

Catch ya later!

Loving the shape of the card - really adds interest. Colours popping too off the white and lots of dimension. Great card Aimes.

Wowzer Aimes - this has it all going on - I absolutely love that large scallop edge and the amazing ruffly doily rosette - really special.

Hope it's not been too painful to be back at work - hey it'll be Christmas before we know it lol!

Such a clever girl you are - huge squishy congrats on the pubs - you will have to let me in on your secret (it would help if I actually submitted any ha!)

Smooch x

You've had a triumphant summer Aimes, congrats on such wonderful news. You really are heading for the big time lady ;)
Your "Punched" card is so pretty, I love what you've done with the border punch.....now that is what "creativity" is all about.
I've not seen anything about your Dad mentioned lately, so no news must be good news? I hope so and I hope you and your family are able to relax a bit now.
Big crafty hugs, Katie x
