friend forever...



Monday...Monday...

Today's card is based on
Card Patterns sketch #30.

Guess what I played with? Yuppers, my newest
PTI order!!! I've been loving all the fabulous In Bloom cards so I finally broke down and ordered it. I also did something that I told myself I wouldn't do....get "caught up" in the luscious PTI papers...oy vey. I knew I shouldn't have done it...but how can I resist the gorgeous Aqua Mist? If a "certain company" would bring back a "certain color" {hello peeps...it's Cool Caribbean!!}....okay, sorry about that....

Back to my card...I had different ideas of how I was going to do the ribbon treatment but ended up just zig zagging it onto the Speckletone Kraft. The 'forever' is from the Friends 'Til the End set...The bloom is 3 layers on dimensionals....LOVE that look.

I know that there are a TON of you PTI lovin' gals...I hope that you think I've done the In Bloom set justice...soooo much inspiration out there for that particular set that it is quite overwhelming. When I get that way, I fall back on the clean & crisp.

Have a super week!!!

I seem to only own paper from them. not sure how that happened, but boy do I LOVE them and they are totally worth it!

  30. Just GORGEOUS!!! I broke down and bought this set too. But after I got it last week, it's still in the box. GASP!! I have not had time --- SAAAAD --- I wish I do!!!

    The PTI papers are nice. The white card stock is the best. If you haven't gotten it, you should!!! Yes, I wish some colors wouldn't retire. Who came up with that silly idea?
