Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop

thinking of you

Good morning friends!!  Today is the 25th so that means you have arrived at my Papertrey Ink Blog Hop post!  This time last month I was basking in fresh memories of Stamp-a-faire and selling my townhouse. Today I am using some of the fun things I bought at SAF and living with my dad for 2 months until the new house is ready…eek!  But let’s get on with the cards, ‘cause that’s why you’re here ;)  This first card was inspired by the inside of this sweet suitcase, the gorgeous flowers and the colour of the preserves (which I’m hoping is raspberry jam! lol) It is also dedicated to my sweet and dear blog friend, Janelle, who is going through a very difficult time right now…many of you know her (Show and Tell blog) as she works magic with PTI products.  Please keep her in your prayers.

August-Blog-Hop-Inspiration

The second card is inspired by the dress the woman is wearing, the flowers again and the colours in general.

Thanks so much for stopping by…I’ll leave you with a few photos from SAF, just in case you didn’t see them in an earlier post ;)  You all know the  PTI DT, the extras are me and Lynn, my sweet blog friend, hostess and shopping enabler!! LOL  Seriously, I would’ve glued myself to Dawn’s hip and gone home with her if she let me!!  She and all the team members were just the sweetest!! Ah, still pinch me :)

Good morning Moe! Yummilicious is how I describe Janelle's card. I of course love the damask design on the background...and Sahara Sand...with a pop of pink...qualifies for yummilicious card!

Oh...and the pop of orange/yellow on the second is perfect! Happy hopping!

Sian Ridley said...

I really like your first card....but I think the second is my favourite! I love damask, but the skewed tag and that awesome flower on the second card got me :)

Aimes said...

Shame it's not a leopard print dress that lady's wearing, right?! LOL!
Gorgeous cards, Diva! Love the muted colours and the way you make the pink totally pop on both cards - scrummy! :)
Hugs,
Duchess
