OTT + UTEE + fer mi! = FREE! TOUT TIME

I love pale pink, perhaps not as passionately as purple, but pale pink is the colour of pretty, epitomises the sweet creaminess of strawberry ice-cream, and evokes the blush of youth and femininity. So, imagine my delight when my free OTT-lite arrived, only days after extending my subscription to Stamping and Papercraft, in PALE PINK. Too pretty and so useful ... no more nights cursing the orangey hue cast by our red fabric covered lamp on coloured cardstock and asking, "Is this Barely Banana or Apricot Appeal?" or actually believing that Pink Passion and Summer Sun make a lovely subdued combination in the light of day.

I suspect that the OTT in OTT-Lite really does mean "Over The Top". After all, how many mere mortals would be prepared to hand over $59 for a light bulb? Anyway, I only have to cross that bridge after 10,000 hours of use since did I mention that I got it FREE! If you are a fan of the magazine and considering a subscription, the lamp comes free along with two additional copies of the magazine if you act by June 9, 2008 [offer code: SP365b].*

To celebrate my OTT-lite, I made the following card using Pretty in Pink and UTEE (since it rhymes with free):

Stampin' Supplies
Certainly Celery
Pretty in Pink

Artfully Asian set
Canvas background
Greetings Galore set

Certainly Celery Prints DSP
Pretty in Pink CS
Whisper White CS

Antique Brass Hodgepodge Hardware
Certainly Celery Grosgrain
Scallop Punch
Whisper White Grosgrain

A Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirl folder was used for the embossed Whisper White.

I know the title of the post is a little obscure but the "fer mi" is supposed to sound like "for me" with the first half in a Scottish brogue and the second half in really bad Spanish - hey, it's difficult coming up with good blog entry titles! Especially anagram ones...

Stampin' Up! Australia is running out of stock of the Prints DSP sampler pads so put your orders in soon!

Hey Beth! Welcome to my blog and it's an honour to be tagged by you. Everyone, check out the wonderful paper goodies that Beth made. And I'll work on being a tag-ee.

*giggle* glad to hear that you weren't hurt! Love the card too! Enjoy your shining new light! K :)

Hey Lin Mei, I got my OTT light last week at the Perth Craft Fait - I paid the big bucks for the big floor standing one with the magnifying class attached. They had knocked $50 of the price of it so I thought why not! Love it, will never part with it. Having 'daylight' instead of yellow light is so much better! Oh yeah , love the card! Those colours are some of my favourites!

Lin Mei said...

Hi Kari! Are you and hubby 100% healthy again? Great to see you are back to your blog with a bang of bold colour (oooh! and sparkly too)!

Lin Mei said...

Awwwww Marcia - I knew you weren't a mere mortal! I am v. envious of your floor standing lamp but I am glad to hear that you got a good deal :) Here's to daylight at night!

I haven't been online much lately but your recent batch of cards are stunning ... will certainly take the time to admire them soon.
