PTI Blog Hop

Hello and Happy Hump Day!  I have been very busy today.  I went to the Orthopedist for a recheck on my Tennis Elbow and also had to take my son Collin to the dentist to have 2 teeth pulled.  That was the last of his baby teeth.  They just didn't want to let go.  Next step is braces.  I made 2 cards today, only one which I can share with you now.  I decided to play along with this month's PTI Blog Hop.  I was just looking through my cards the other day wondering if there were things I would change now.  I am my own worst critic.

New Card

The Challenge(Taken from the PTI Blog)
This month, in honor of the New Year, we are challenging you to pick your favorite project from 2011 and share it with all of us. To take it a step further, you are challenged to create a second card that is inspired by the favorite project you select. Your new version of an old favorite could carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets. We look forward to seeing your best creations from 2011, as well as your first projects from 2012!




This was my original card posted HERE.  I loved the softness and femininity of this card.  I had put a little white paint on the Stampin' Up metal brad, and stick pin in the bow.

Such beautiful cards. The first a knockout and the second an equal stunner. The colors of the second are just so dreamy. The inking/stamping of the inside of the petals is so beautiful. What are the inks used inside the flower? The champagne colored ribbon is also lovely. Just divine.
