Another PTI Bloghop - YAY!
The challenge this month was to use felt. I also made a template for the Just Us Girls Challenge this week.
Here is my project. The card is first up...I used true black PTI felt for the flower.
When I saw this week's ColourQ challenge, the Year of Flowers: Daffodils set (from Papertrey Ink) sprang to mind. I can't believe I hadn't inked up this set yet! I love this whole PTI line - the fonts, the images... so many possibilities. Plus, I get to color with my copics, which is a plus.
I've missed the deadlines on the last few ColourQ challenges, but I'm back on the ball this week :)
...on this one! Talk about under the wire :)
Here's my card for the latest Just Us Girls Challenge.
It's rainy here today, and cool. Blech... Perfect crafting weather though :)
The challenge over at Just Us Girls this week is to create a pocket card. I'm not sure how I hadn't made one before today - so much fun! The colors used are from the most recent Play Date Cafe challenge. Love those too - I'm on a roll with true black. This is my third out of my last four in which I've used that card stock. I've always been partial to earth tones, but since card making has entered my life, I've definitely branched out color-wise.
Here's the assembled piece... I'm loving Delightful Dahlia lately. I can't stop using it. By the way, all the materials mentioned will be from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise specified :)
I've got a few awesome gifts from some very thoughtful, very sweet friends - Tanny and Sue.
The very wonderful, talented Tanny sent me this first one and, in following her lead, I thought I would list a few things that make me happy... this is a great exercise for perspective when one has had a bad day :)
Happy Mom's Day to all you mothers in blogland! I hope you had a wonderful day :)
I don't have a Mother's Day card to share tonight but a Thank you card for this week's ColourQ challenge.
TTFN,FUN FACT: In the vast majority of the world's languages, the word for "mother" begins with the letter M.
What can I say... I'm restless :) I grew tired of my old blog template so began browsing for a new one. I found a couple of wonderful freebies (check out leelou blogs - awesome templates and backgrounds for blogger). I did come across Premades for a Purpose - Lena is selling blog templates (for a pretty nominal fee - $5 to $10 and she even will customize some for you if desired) to raise money to adopt a child. How I could I resist? Plus the templates are super cute! So, if you are in need of a blog makeover and want to see a few gorgeous, unique templates - check out her blog. That's where I got my newest "look" - I really like it as it's a bit more custom, and therefore, a bit more "me" :)
I've got a card and a template to share - this set is for the Just Us Girls Design Team Call!!! How exciting is that?!?!
So here's my project...
It's time for another challenge at Pile It On! The challenge is to create a project using colors suited for boys. There have been a few changes over at PIO - there's a whole new fantastic look with cute little birds and trees and we've added a few new DT members as we sadly say good bye to a few others. The following ladies have decided to step down -Ann, Audrey, Dee, Jennifer, Jennifer B, Linda, Sam, Sammye Jo, and Tanja. Good luck in all your future endeavors gals! We'll miss ya and your talented creations :)
We welcome a few new super talented DT members - Patricia, Arianne, Neli, Deanne, Debbie, Helen, Nana, Yvonne, Anna, Melinda and Illy. So glad you can join us. Looking forward to working with you!
This week, the sponsor is In Style Stamps....
Happy weekend folks!
No particular challenge today - just going to share a fun project that I was working on recently.
A few weekends ago, the hubby and I spent a very fun weekend with our very good friends for a birthday celebration. As an aside, we ate at a FABULOUS Indian restaurant in Asheville, NC - YUM!
