Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge


Good afternoon and welcome to my blog!!  It's the Papertrey Blog Hop and this month is all about felt :)  Today's post shows 3 different ways to use felt...first up is the felt blossom Betsy Veldman showed us how to make on this blog post...I was a little nervous at first trying this one but they really are easy to make!! (thanks, Betsy!!).  This card also uses some old sheet music that my new dear blog friend, Janelle, sent me after I saw it on the last PTI blog hop!!  I have used several sheets already (thanks, Janelle. It's just like you to be so nice!! LOL)
This next card uses felt for a birdie die cut.  This card also features the gorgeous seam binding that Melissa Phillips is making famous :)  I am still waiting for my mail orders so my sweet friend, Melisa, lent me some so I could make this card (thanks, Melisa!!) 
Last, but not least...here is felt as a label die cut.  I was inspired by the fabulous colour inspiration photo found over at A Creative Mint.  Well, that's all!! Thanks so much for coming by and all your encouraging comments :)  I can't wait to see what everyone else has created :)

Maureen, Thanks for your comment. LOL for me too, because I somehow missed Betsy's instructions and I wish I would have seen those a few hours ago. I have the cuttlebug dies, not the PTI (yet!) so I still think my flower was too small for quarters!
