Hi there friends!  I am being forced to relax today after messing up my foot on the stairs last night.  I think my cats were conspiring to kill me.  Anyway my foot is a mess and I can't walk- which is never a good thing.  Sigh.  Yesterday I took some card pictures with my iphone because I just get lazier everyday.  So here is an unedited iphone pic of a card I made the other day.  I was using the flip flop set from PTI.  The little bits on the side are from doodlebug and echo park.  All other stuff is from PTI, including the inks in Hawaiian shores and New Leaf.  Thanks for stopping by to see me today!

Make It Monday #99

Hello friends!  Today I have a card for you from PTI's Make It Monday Challenge.  You can find the details of the challenge here.  The idea today was to use rainbows and repeats.  I chose to use color scheme #6- Summer Sunrise, Limeaid Ice, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Raspberry Fizz.
I chose to use Little Birdie and Little Birdie Additions for my card.  I also used a sentiment and music notes from Birds of a Feather.  The squiggly line is from Little Birdie.  I just love a clean and simple challenge!  Thanks for stopping by!

Natural Beauties Birthday Card

Good Morning blog friends! I have another birthday card for you today.  Hopefully I will get this one out on time!  Mostly PTI product again today.
The card base is PTI white.  I used aqua mist, hawaiian shores, new leaf inks to stamp the focal point.  The stamps are from Natural Beauties set.  Not sure about the sentiment, but I do know its PTI.  After stamping I added the bling from Queen and Co.  Then I thought the left side needed something so I added some score tape and glitter.  Still not sure that was the right decision but whats done is done and I do like the super glitter effect in real life- its not so evident in the photo.
As always thanks for stopping by!  Hoping to get in some crafting and photography today so I have blog fodder for next week.  Will it actually happen?  Who knows!

Birthday Wishes

Hi y'all!  Happy Friday!  Its my last day of vacation!  I need like two more weeks but I dont think I will be getting them! LOL!  Anyway I made this card for a very good friend of mine.  Believe it or not I met her on the internet way back in 2000 when I was pregnant with my first child.  We met on an AOL message board!  She is amazing and someone I admire greatly. 

I made this card using all PTI product.  The cardstock is Kraft.  I stamped it with my Fancy Flourish stamps in fresh snow ink.  I also inked up the sides with fresh snow.  I added the small dots with my gel pen.  The sentiment was stamped in versamark and embossed with white filagree embossing powder.  The flowers from Natural Beauties were stamped on white cardstock using hawaiian shores, aqua mist, sweet blush, hibiscus, lavendar moon, new leaf, and rose inks.  The bling is from Queen & Co.

Thanks for stopping in today!

MIM #98 Chalkboard Technique

Hello friends!  Happy New Year to you all!  I hope 2013 is treating you right!  So far so good here- I am still on Winter Break from work and enjoying the last little bit of free time.  This week I decided to participate in PTI's Make it Monday (MIM).  This week they were teaching the chalkboard technique.  You can see all the details here.

 Here is my entry. This is the first time I have attempted the chalk board technique.  I used PTI's Hello Sunshine stamp set.  The flourishes are from the Mat Stack Collection.  I used Summer Sunrise and Fresh Snow inks as well as white embossing powder.  I also used colored pencils.  Cardstock is white and true black.
