Here's my last post for the day! I love the PTI Create Along with Us challenges. We get to choose a card from one of the design teams and create a card inspired by it. I have fast become a HUGE fan of Kay Miller and her gorgeous bright colours on water colour backgrounds. Here's the card I had to CASE...you can find it on this POST.
Isn't it amazing! I can't stop looking at it! LOL Thanks for stopping by! I hope your week is off to a great start!
Hi! I'm back as promised with the PTI Dress Up Inspiration challenge. I knew right away that I wanted to make a card inspired by this beautiful top I got a few months ago. Rosie Posie was still on my desk so I used it for the big blossoms and mint leaves on the shirt. The black collar is mimicked by the black trim around the French script panel.
Thanks for stopping by! I sure have been enjoying the challenges and hope I can keep up as I head back to work tomorrow.
Hi everyone! I've had a wonderful holiday Monday reading, working out, and card making! I caught up on the PTI Anniversary challenges and this card is for the Grab and Go challenge. In less than 5 minutes, I pulled the 2 blue circles and shine brightly sun die cut out of my scrap pile. I also had a little piece of gold paper so I die cut the "Shine" out of it. Easy peasy card and my scrap pile is a little bit smaller! Hooray! Thanks for stopping by! I have 2 more cards to share coming up soon!

Hello friends! We have a long weekend here in BC so I spent the first part of today ice fishing with the dh and some family and friends. We didn't get a bite after an hour so we headed back to the trucks and found the perfect spot for a fire and bbq with some hot toddies. When we got home, I headed down to the studio to start the PTI anniversary challenges. Up first was the colour challenge. I chose Kay's colour palette as it was so bright and full of promises of Spring!
I've been going through my PTI sets, selling some that I don't use anymore and was struggling with Rosie Posie...it's a classic and I hadn't used it for awhile, but now that I've used it, it's back in my "keep" pile! Any sets like that for you? Thanks for stopping by!
Hi everyone! Today's card is a reminder that the Sachet challenge is still on over on the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog. We continue to be inspired by this photo...
I was looking through my "hearts" box and found these punched hearts that a friend gave me several years ago. They reminded me of the hearts in the photo. Then I stamped the 'be mine' three times before adding the 'valentine' and the three sweet little hearts. The stamps are all from Verve's Twitterpated.
Want to play along? Head over to the Curtain Call blog for more inspiration and then join in the fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi everyone! I'm sneaking a quick card into the Make it Monday challenge before I start in on the PTI anniversary challenges. I was frustrated while creating a watercolour background when I looked through my Crate Paper pad and found this perfect ombre pink page...done! A simple, but straight to the point card! Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Saturday! This card uses the newest sketch over on the Viva La Verve blog. It was perfect for the dh's Valentine card. I've used several sentiments from Twitterpated to create the black quote bars and a sentiment from Treasured Words on the main tag that's been smooshed with some red ink. Head over to the Viva La Verve blog for all the details on how you could win some Verve this month and more inspiration :) Have a great weekend!
