PTI Botanical Silhouettes- Series I


I am having a stamping affair with my PTI Botanical Silhouettes set! So many possibilities!
Many thanks to Laurie Willison at Soapbox Creations for much of my CASE'd inspiration!

Quatrefoil LOVE!

I am LOVING my new Quatrefoil die! I've already made a plethora of birthday cards (here is a simple one!) and have the creative inspiration of the PTI Design Team to thank! So lovely! The Smokey Shadow card stock is great in combination with almost any color, so I'll have to restock asap!

PTI November Blog Hop


Yes..... time for the PTI November Blog Hop! I think that I ate too much turkey, went shopping WAY too early this morning, and caused the sleep-deprived, creative portion of my brain to malfunction. So, here is a vintage creation from the card cache- which maybe still kinda works! All of you "on the ball" people came up with some beautiful ideas using the inspiration photo! 
I wish that my holiday stairway looked this lovely!


Here are a few others that might have fit the bill!:

Tags - Take 3!

These holiday tags are for sharing all of those homemade goodies!

CAS-ual Fridays CFC #28- Take 2!

Here are a few more from my
holiday tag collection! 
I think that I'll add this to the 
CAS-ual Friday challenge too!

CAS-ual Fridays CFC #28

Here is  my first entry for Cas-ual Friday's challenge: Tag You're It!
I've been working like a crazy woman making lots of tags, but these are leftovers from last year. I'll be breaking' out the new ones soon!

I've never met a Betsy Veldman card that did not make me swoon!

Mitten Frenzy #2

Oops...  just one more "mitten" card, in a completely different color scheme! I think that this might qualify for the CAS-ual Friday Challenge #37 as there's a tiny element that is "over the edge"

A Mitten Frenzy!

So you see, this is how it usually goes....... first card, alter, second card, change up stamps a bit, third card, get out the stickles, fourth card, let's try inking up that embossing folder, etc. Well, you get the idea! I have some new stamps from Wplus9, a bargain Martha Stewart set (from Marshall's!), a few well loved PTI snowflakes and a winter Sizzix embossing folder that all needed to be put to use (although, perhaps, not all at the same time!). Hmmm.... how did this all begin? Oh yeah, I wanted to participate in the Make It Monday #39: Multi Stamp Background Building!
