Papertrey August Blog Hop Challenge


I haven't posted much lately but I thought it would be fun to try this month's PTI blog hop challenge

Here's the inspiration photo...







I decided to play around with my new What the Doodle feather set. I stamped it in Memento and then coloured it with Staedtler watercolour pencils. The lighter peach looks more pinky in real life. It turned out looking sort of "Southwest" which is kind of cool. I matted it on a Summer Sunrise card base and added some sequins.





I can't wait to see all the inspiration along the hop!

Thanks for stopping by.

Crazy Card Party-- Travel!!


This week at Crazy Card Party, our resident "cruise director" Kathryn set a travel theme! Well you don't have to ask me twice to post travel layouts!


Here's us in the arctic in Norway. Such an amazing day.
 

     



















  And here's a pocket page from the same day...taking a ferry across the fjord to our lodge. Man it was cold but stunning views and amazing experience!




 




I can't wait to see what travel theme beauties the other Party-Ers create this week!

Crazy Card Party-- Birthday!


This week at Crazy Card Party, Rosanne has set a birthday theme! Gee, I wonder why LOL! 

  




I borrowed this PTI anniversary set from Rosanne at the Crop and Create crop. Such a pretty set and I love the fonts in the sentiments.


I can't wait to see what the other Party-Ers create this week!

Crazy Card Party-- Christmas in July!


This week at Crazy Card Party, Patricia is asking to see Christmas in July! Actually I was really happy when I saw this challenge...I love making Christmas cards, no matter what month it is!

I stamped some branches, berries and pine cones from various stamp sets. I popped on some silver embossed branches too. Kind of cool!




    


I can't wait to see what kind of Christmas stuff the other Party-Ers create this week!

Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge


Well when I saw this month's PTI blog hop inspiration photo, I knew I had to play along. I love everything about that room!






I dug out "On My Couch" and "Lighten Up" sentiments and created this little scene with Melon Berry, Aqua Mist and Blueberry Sky. Notice the gold legs on the chair! Love it!




Thanks for stopping by!

You make my heart soar!


I've been on a roll playing along with lots of challenges this summer. Today I thought I would link up with PTI's Make it Monday~ Spritzed Stamps.

Melissa's example used Feather Finery, so that's what I tried...




I love how it turned out, especially with the gold embossed dots on top.

Thanks for stopping by!

Crazy Card Party-- Tropical!


This week at Crazy Card Party, I am up and I want to see anything tropical since the weather lately has certainly been hot hot hot!!

I used my Hero Arts hibiscus set to create these pretty flowers...they are almost exactly the colour of our hibiscus flowers you can see here in the background!



 

I can't wait to see what kind of tropical goodness the other Party-Ers create this week!
