Counting My Blessings…

countingblessings

Good morning!!  Well, I’m up early and looking forward to a new year as strange as it may sound.  Today’s card makes me realize that I truly have so many blessings in my life…too many to count actually.  So bring on the new year!!  Today’s card is for this week’s PTI Make It Monday.  The technique this week is to make your own background using a stamp that was not intended for backgrounds.  With school starting today, I was inspired to use the ruler image from It’s Official.  I stamped it repeatedly with my favourite colours on kraft.  I then made a ruler ribbon that Dawn showed us last year during the It’s Official reveal on her blog. I also used many of my new PTI goodies including Dawn’s Grateful set and the new tab and mum dies.  Thanks for stopping by and wish me luck!!

Oh goodness...I love the mum and the sweet little tab is perfect! I'm hoping today goes off without a hitch for you! Can't wait to hear about your new set of grade 2s! I'm off to work a bit late this morning - getting my guys on the bus as Pat had an appt! Marcel is busy telling me "that how Daddy does it..." :) Love that little man!

Goodness, I just love this! Can you believe I don't have It's Official yet? And I didn't think I needed the mum die, because I'm holding out for one that will cut felt, but you're making me think I should change my mind! Super cute!

Maureen!!! This is fabulous! I've been debating about getting It's Official for a looong time now! I think I might have to rethink it again! That flower is gorgeous! I was going to get it but it's out of stock.
