May Papertrey Blog Hop Challenge



This is my first ever Papertrey blog hop!  Since I just got some new PTI goodies including some flower dies, and since flowers were this month's theme, I decided to jump in and participate.

I combined this week's Monday Lunchtime sketch and Color Q challenges because last week I made card for the Color Q and for some dumb reason, forgot to add it to Mr. Linky!  Still kicking myself for that one as I loved my card.  Oh well, lesson learned!!

As you can tell from some of my recent posts, the Polka Dot Basics II set is quickly becoming a favorite of mine!  I used it along with Dawn's wonderful Signature Greetings and PTI flower die.  I added some white leaves with a bit of script on them to help balance things off.  My Daffodil Delight is very minimal, but it's in there with the twine LOL!

Thanks for joining me on my first ever PTI Blog Hop :)   As the card says, hope your day is fabulous!




What's In It?
Stamps: (PTI)  Polka Dot Basics II, Signature Greetings
Paper: So Saffron, Real Red, Early Espresso
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories:  PTI Flower Blooms II Die, Button, Twine, 5/8" White Satin Ribbon, Martha Stewart Leaf Punch, Glue Dot, Twine, Bling, Dimensionals

oh, just look at all that PTI goodness!! What a perfect challenge this month for you!! WE are getting a whole lotta rain today and probably tomorrow for our field trip to Isobel lake...ugh!! Although, I'm pretty lucky with field trips, I usually get fairly good weather :) At least the grass is really green at home :)
