Sunshine for my Soul ~ PTI Blog Hop


 Greetings everyone!  Here's my take for this month's PTI June Blog Hop.  I was inspired by the colours of ombre and the flowers.  My Gran's Garden finally arrived and I was itching to ink it up.  I have a dear colleague leaving our school and needed a special card for her.  She'll only be down the street at the high school, but that's still too far for me! WAA!


Thanks for stopping by...I can't wait to check out all your projects!  Happy Sunday!

With Appreciation ~ Make it Monday


Hello friends! It's the last stretch of school here in BC...one more week to go and this gal will be singing the summer lovin' tune!  It was easy to be inspired by apples again for this week's PTI Make it Monday challenge...create a Pantone colour chip card.  The Mega Mixed Messages set had lots of perfect fonts for this challenge.  I think this was the only stamp not inked yet in my set.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend :)

Teachers Live Forever ~ The Card Concept


 Hello everyone! Today starts a new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog based on the picture below... 


I have eight more days of work and then I am officially off on summer vacation!  I was inspired by the end of the school year and the bold colours :)  I thought the translation of roses to apples was more than appropriate for a teacher card...HA!   I hope you'll head over to The Card Concept blog to see all the different interpretations from the Design Team then join in the fun!  Have a great day!

Awesome, Wonderful ~ PTI Create Along with Us


Hey everyone!  I'm just relaxing a bit in the studio after our company departed.  We've had a fun Father's Day weekend with  out of town and in town family...lots of fun and laughter :)  I'm sneaking in a quick card for PTI's Create Along with Us.  I was inspired by Dawn's gorgeous card...

I used a bunch of old sets  along with Rosie Posie (AGAIN!) but kept the same colours and layout as Dawn's card.  Thanks for stopping by!

The Flowers in Your Garden ~ Curtain Call Inspiration


Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge over on the  Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…

 

How delicious is this photo! Oh my!  I love this deep pink with aqua and translated it to flowers on my card.  And here's my second card...same elements, just a different layout and sentiment...

A Very Happy Birthday to You



Happy Sunday, friends!  I've got report cards written and am off to print them at my school, proof read them, then they are DONE for another year.  I worked on them steadily all week after dinner so I had a little spare time this weekend to play with my favourite PTI Make it Monday challenge.  This week we are asked to make a background with ink and baby wipes.  This was so fun and quick!  I made 2 backgrounds...


 ...because I'm still going strong on creating 2 cards at once.  It's amazing how that one extra card builds up your stash!


Thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous Birthday ~ The Card Concept



Hello everyone! Today starts a new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog based on the picture below... 


I just want to move into this house and host a fabulous dinner party in this room!  Want to come?  I pretty much was inspired by everything in this photo right down to the hot pink flowers.  I'm calling the style clean and layered.  I hope you'll head over to The Card Concept blog to see all the different interpretations from the Design Team then join in the fun!  Have a great day!

So Happy ~ PTI Make it Monday



Hello friends!  Yikes, it's June and that means I have 4 weeks to wrap up the school year...field trips, report cards, iPad presentations, new curriculum, gifts...it's kind of like Christmas, it has to get done!  I just had to play with this week's Make it Monday so I took a break in the studio.  Marcia's idea to use  the negative die cut from her first card inspired me to do the same.  Those bits from the quatrefoil cover plate are too good to throw away!

 I used the same papers and die cuts but changed up the sentiment for a little variation.  They look so sweet together!


Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!  Ok, now it's back to work!

Shine Like the Sun ~ Curtain Call Inspiration


Hello everyone! A new challenge is up and ready to go over on the  Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…


I was inspired by the succulent colours and translated them onto flowers, although, knowing me, succulents would survive better than flowers! HA!  Here's my second card with a junk bow...

Congrats ~ Papertrey Ink's May Blog Hop



Hi everyone! Welcome to my take on this month's PTI Blog Hop :)  I took inspiration from both the blooms and colours.  I dug out my Painted Petals set along with the ink colours I saw in the photo, then went to down stamping these two backgrounds ('cause I'm still making 2 cards at a time!)


  
I experimented a bit with some aquamist leaves on the left one, but it didn't go very well so I covered it up with some vellum and a tag :) Now it looks beautiful again! 



 Thanks for stopping by!  I can't wait to see how you were inspired!

Dream Big ~ The Card Concept



Hello everyone! Today starts a new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog based on the picture below... 


I was inspired by the gorgeous mix of neutrals, pinks, and gold accents.  I found this "Dream Big" die cut card in one of my Simon Says Stamp card kits and knew it would be the perfect jumping off point for my card.  Then I just started adding some bits and pieces from my scrap pile :)  I love when I can do that.  I think the style is Clean & Layered, although I'm never good at nailing down a particular style.  I like the "anything goes" look! LOL.

I hope you'll head over to The Card Concept blog to see all the different interpretations from the Design Team then join in the fun!  Have a great day!

Just Because (it's Holiday Monday)



Happy Victoria Day Monday to all my Canadian friends...this is my take on PTI's Make it (Holiday) Monday!  LOL  I love holiday Mondays because it usually means I have time to watch the MIM video first thing in the morning with coffee in my PJs.  It's the little things, right?  Today we are asked to make felt flowers.  I literally said, "ouch," each time Lizzi squeezed those darling little petals with hot glue so I'm thinking she hadsa cooler hot glue gun than mine.  I went for some spray adhesive instead :)  I wanted a card that was fairly flat so I just layered the flowers like I do when using paper.  These dies cut the felt like butter without any adjustments to my Big Shot. I did, however, use a metal shim for the melon berry layer on the biggest bloom just to make sure it cut all the way through.  Thanks for stopping by!

Sending You Hugs






 Mid week greetings to you all!  I love PTI release week because that means that the MIM challenge turns into a Create Along with Us challenge.  I love getting inspiration from some of my favourite designers.  I cheated a little this time and am CASEing Heather's card from this release with a former card from Melissa...here are their cards...
