April PTI Blog Hop

Hello there. I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Holiday with family and friends. We had a great day that started out with a great Easter morning service at church. Can't get any better than that.

Ya know, I used to really struggle with masculine cards...A LOT...but with the most recent release from Papertrey Ink I don't have to struggle any more. The new stamp sets they have are AWESOME!! Take a gander at all the great new stuff HERE. You won't be disappointed.

If you want to hop along on the PTI blog hop, start HERE.

Here is the first card I created as soon as my sets arrived. Just couldn't wait to ink them up, that is how much I love them. And with three boys of my own, these stamp sets will be of great use.




And I couldn't just stop at one card. This card was made for my nephew, I'm sure he will like it. It was so easy to make and the inspiration just flowed.


Thanks for stopping by, enjoy hopping today!!




All supplies for both cards are from Papertrey Ink
