Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Wow, this is my very first Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. I am really enjoying looking at all the entries so far in the hop, loads of inspiration.

I love the challenge for this month, to break out a set we haven't used yet or to dust off one we have used but not for a while. When I glanced at my stamp sets I knew right away which one I wanted to use, Guide Lines. When I first got this set, I used it a lot but as I continued to acquire more PTI stamps, this stamp set was pushed back and I haven't used for over a year or more. Thanks for the challenge, I now have a new found love for my Guide Lines, and I think I will throw some Guide Lines 2 into the mix as well.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Bloom and Grow Forever

Hello!!! Here is a flowery card for you today. And I know looking at it you wonder how I would ever send it through the mail, and here is my answer, I don't. :) Sometimes I make cards just for the fun of it and this is one of those cards. I just felt like playing around with my stash of craft supplies and this is what I came up with.

I will say, it was nice to look through all that I own and see what I got because I came across this wonderful flower die by My Favorite Things that makes the flowers that you see on this card. You just simply cut your flower shape and then roll it up, I prefer to do it around a pen or pencil, and then I hot glue the end to the bottom of the flower and there you have it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Thank You

Wow, welcome to the new year. Trying to get this year started off right with this Thank You card. Thanks for all the visits this past year and thanks for all your comments, you are the sweetest bunch of people out there.

This card is totally inspired by Dawn McVey. I love her style of cards and love that she can use very few product and still make her cards look wonderful. Give her a handful of Papertrey Ink and she can do wonders. And don't even get me started on her color combos, she has the best talent at putting colors together that you wouldn't maybe consider and make everything look wonderful. Can you tell she is my card making idol. :o)

Thanks for stopping by and I hope 2011 is a great one for you.
