BLOG TAKEOVER- Day 5

Are you ready for BLOG TAKEOVER, day 5?


Hey!
It's Aimes here from Crafting Confessions , totally gatecrashing blog stylee! Let's get this party started! LOL!
OK, ok so I'm not actually gatecrashing as I was invited over here by Jill. Boy was I was totally honoured with such a responsibility and jumped at the chance to hang out around here for a day. So I feel that it's only polite as the hostess to offer you a drink; tell you what, I'll put the kettle on for us and whilst it's boiling share a card with ya *wink*
As you probably know, Jill is playing a little role reversal whilst she has a blast at CHA (Am I jealous? Moi?! In a word - Yup!) and it's me who gets to pick a card of hers to be inspired by. Sounds easy, huh? Well have you checked out Jill's gallery? There's inspiration ooozing outta every creation of hers! Still, I had to narrow down my choice to one card of here and picked this beauty:

What drew me to this card? Well not only Jill's amazing attention to detail when it comes to colouring, but I also loved the idea of using a tag on a card. I mean, I have some tag dies but hardly use 'em enough. So out came a tag die, some scrummy new flower stamps and I got inky:


Now my colouring skill is nothing close to Jill's but I do love me a good colouring session and I've had these new stamps from Verve that have been waiting ever-so-patiently to be inked up. But not only do I love that I got to have a play with my Promarkers, I also love that Jill even inspired me to cut up some patterned paper that I've been hoarding and attach it to a card too! I think I've only got about a million sheets of the stuff to use LOL!
Ooooh, do you hear that? The kettle's just boiled so I'm gonna go make us that cuppa...
Thanks so much to Jill for trusting me with her blog today - I hope I've tidied up after myself LOL!

Aimes! You sure now how to make a girl SMILE BIG! Your post has me laughing and smiling and oogling at your beautiful card! Thanks, my friend!

And don't worry-this fun week of takeovers isn't over yet. I'll have a bonus post for you tomorrow by another incredibly talented stamper- hope you'll stop by!

Wow such a great take on Jill's card. So looooove those flowers and love how you added torn paper to your tag. The design, like Jill's is amazing and think the addition of tag is wonderful. Hope your cup of tea was good! Lol.
