Hello again!  I'm back with my take on PTI's Transformation Tuesday challenge.  I took the card I made for Make it Monday which had white flowers and a neutral vibe to one with the same layout but bright colours.  Here are both cards side by side.

Thanks for visiting!  Hope you all have a great week!  The count down to my summer is ON!

Choose Serenity ~ Create Along with Us

Hi friends!  I've spent a few hours in the studio making this card  for PTI's Create Along with Us and a couple of retirement cards for my teacher colleagues.  I needed a birthday card for a good friend who teaches with me.  We went to see Seinfeld Live last month so I thought this sentiment was perfect.  

 I also picked up a few of these key chains on Etsy to celebrate seeing Seinfeld (I'm a huge fan since the original series aired).  I'm CASEing Laurie's beautiful card except I stamped and clear embossed "serenity" because there is no die cut for it. Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!

 what's in it?
stamps: Brushed Birds, Stitching Garden (PTI)
dies: Noted Scalloped A2 Vertical die, Stitching Garden Die (PTI)
paper: stampers select white, soft stone (PTI)
ink: green parakeet, sweet blush, pale peony, aqumist (PTI), summer sunrise (SU)

Time to Celebrate! The Card Concept

Hello everyone!  Today starts a new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog based on the picture below...

My clean and layered card was inspired by the bold pattern and colours and a winged animal.  I don't have any owl stamps or dies (YES! I KNOW! That seems unacceptable!) so I went with a winged insect :)  I think it works! I hope you'll head over to The Card Concept blog to see all the different interpretations from the Design Team then join in the fun!  Have a great day!

what's in it?
stamps:  Offbeat Birthday (PTI)
dies: Life is Beautiful, Noted Pinked A2 Vertical (PTI)
paper: stampers select white, Don't Forget to Write refills, vellum cardstock (PTI)
accessories: orange zest buttons (PTI)

Absolutely Fabulous ~ Make It Monday

Hello friends!  I've been a little AOL this week from the studio because it was report card writing week.  I'm happy to say I just need to proof read them then I'm only 2 field trips and 15 work days away from summer vacation!  I'm so glad I had time to make a card for PTI's Make it Monday.  The challenge was to use lots of dots.  I've used embossed dots and enamel dots to dress up my vellum butterfly :)  Thanks for visiting!  Have a great week :)

dies: Enclosed: Butterfly, Noted Pinked A2 Vertical (PTI)

Your House Has Grown by Two Feet!

Greetings, friends!  I former colleague had a baby girl 2 months ago and on Friday she brought her to work so that we could meet her.  She was over the moon adorable!  I had to make my favourite baby card for her.  I have never seen a stamp with this sentiment (HINT, HINT, PTI!), but have always loved it so I print it out onto cardstock.  Those sweet baby feet are from and ANCIENT Stampin' Up set that I have kept all these years to go with this sentiment.  AND because this is for PTI's Transformation Tuesday, here's a boy version :)

 And the two together...

 Have a great Sunday!  It's starting to rain so I may get some more studio time today!

what's in it?
dies: Limitless Layers (PTI), stitched rectangle (Lil Inkers), stitched circles (MFT)
ink: Pale Peony (PTI), Soft Sky (SU)
paper: stampers select white (PTI), patterned paper (craft supply)
