PTI Blog Hop

Hello guys,

Well, today I decided to play along with the PTI blog hop!  This month Nichole challenged everyone to use a new stamp or one that hasn't been used in a while to create a project.

I decided to use the On My Couch set, this was my VERY first stamp set I purchased from PTI and I absolutely love it, but I have so many new sets that this one kind of gets left out!

I stamped the little couch on some PTI felt and then cut it out. (Still don't have the die)

I tried to make the card a little more interesting by turning the American Crafts Pattern Paper, and putting the couch on a Martha Stewart doily. (Not to sure if I like the paper turned) 

Thanks for stopping by,

Moxie Fab Bright and Bold Challenge

OK finally getting some time to blog a little! I have been trying to get back into the swing of crafty, but little O and big brother keep me pretty busy.  Any hoot I decided I wanted to give a Moxie Fab Challenge a try. I choose the Bright and Bold colors because they weren't colors I would normally work with and hey it is a challenge right.

Well, unfortunately that is about all the time I have. Before I go though wanted to share a little post that really expresses how I feel about crafting. The post was on the Paper Crafts Connection yesterday and after reading it I was so excited to see other people love making cards, etc as much as I do!!
Have a GREAT day,

Stamp: Mat Stack 2
Paper: Papertrey ink
Ribbon: Papertrey ink
Die Cuts: Papertrey ink

We are just back from a 10 hour plus trip to Colorado for a friends wedding! So needless to say it is a pajama wearing, snuggling with blankets and hot cocoa sort of day!
 Although there are tons of clothes to be washed and tons to be reorganized I wanted to pop in and share some cards made with a couple of new stamp sets from PTI (best Christmas presents ever). The first card is made with the Banner Builder Stamp set!! Love Love Love it!! Will probably be using it every chance I get!!
Next is a little card made for the lovely couple from the Colorado wedding!  This set is Love Birds by Dawn McVey also from PTI, but you probably know who she is! Such a fun set and great for upcoming V-Day!

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy New Year!!

Just stopping in for a short hello, a quick card and some family pictures!

I really wanted to try and make these Poppies that Lisa Johnson had shown on her blog.
 One of my favorite newborn pictures of little O!

I can't believe it is 2011 already!  I remember being a kid and wondering what I would be doing in the future. Never did I imagine the blessings God would give me!  I enjoy every minute I can spend with my family and can't wait to see what God has planned for the New Year! The above family pictures were taken by my cousin, he can do amazing with his camera!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a Very Happy New Year!!
