A Happy Hello


Hello friends! I've got a fun little card for you today. Sorry the picture quality is not stellar, I took it during the torrential rains last week. I used some PTI (Sending You and Gingham). I will say this: I love the sending you set. Great sentiments, love the arch, love the flower middles. The gingham set I do not like. It is impossible to line up. See all those extra flowers... the ribbon...? Yeah they are hiding the lines, you cant really see it here because the photo is washed out but in real life it is so not bueno. I would put gingham down as a do not buy. Go to another company and get a full size background. I hate to say it, because you know I love PTI but its the truth, as I see it anyway. Anyhow enough product review. The card is all PTI except the bling and the ink. Bling is by doodlebug and the ink is by dewdrops. Thanks for stopping in!

love the colors and the background you have created!

This is beautiful!!! Everytime I see a card made with Sending You, I kick myself for not getting it. And by the way, I totally agree with you about the gingham set. What a bummer!!! I was so excited about it, but it is IMPOSSIBLE to line up!

Wow! I love the colors. I like the idea of layering the flowers on the gingham. Even though it was to cover up the lines from the gingham, it looks like it was meant to be...like a flower on trellis look. Makes me want to get my Sending You set inky.

Very pretty, Michele! I've been checking to see if this set is available ever since I passed over it at the release. Very mad that I didn't jump on that wagon!

Even in bad weather this is obviously a fabulous card Michele! Love the shades of blue and the wide ribbon.
I have no trouble lining the gingham up, but I can't for the life of me get a good impression from it! I too agree that it is a NO BUY item, sad to say.

So pretty, I love the Sending You set too but I have to agree with the gingham also:( It works great if you use it just for your perimiter as a "background" and then mat the rest, but I can't get it to line up either without lines...the first BB like this for me.
