Good morning!!  It’s the 25th of June and we are celebrating a few things on today’s post.  It’s Papertrey Ink’s monthly Blog Hop as well as the incomparable Dawn McVey’s birthday!!  Yahoo!! Happy Birthday, Dawn!!  The inspiration this month is this picture…

I was totally inspired by the colours…I picked up this gorgeous deep coral grosgrain/silk ribbon last week and it is just delicious!!  This really is Dawn’s birthday card too………because……I am one of the lucky 200 who get to go to PTI’s Stamp-a-faire next month!!  I get to meet Dawn herself and personally hand deliver this card (with a little treat from Canada).  ACK!!  My second card is also inspired by the colours and is my way of celebrating going to this event with my dear blog buddy, Lynn :)  She is playing hostess, tour guide, shopping buddy and chauffeur when I arrive in OH!!  Thanks, Lynn!!  Will YOU be there?  Can’t wait to meet you!!  Have a great day and I’ll see you on the HOP and in OH next month :)

You've used the inspiration colors so beautifully on both cards, Maureen! I just love the layered mats on the first one and the way you clustered the tickets, button, and butterfly on the round tag on the second one!

Really... I'm going to try not to comment on every post (you just make it so hard...)! :) Love, love, love your blog hop cards. And, oh, how I wish I could be in Ohio with you and Lynn (and everyone else)! With Britt getting married the next weekend and my mom here visiting... well, I don't think everyone would understand me sneaking off for a PTI weekend. Believe me, I really tried to figure out how it could be done! Oh, well. Maybe next year...
