PTI June blog hop

Happy Monday everyone! Can I really say that? Well, yes, I can. If you stay tuned to the blog, I have an announcement to make for my second post today.



It's that time of the month for Papertrey Ink, the monthly blog hop. I always find so much inspiration along the hop. I love to see what others have come up with  using the same inspiration photo.


I made my card using a white card base. I wanted my card to have a light and airy feel. I stamped Pretty Peonies in Soft Stone for the background.  I used one of the frames and the sentiment from the set as well. Although the green appears more like New Leaf, since I do not have that color, I opted to stamp the sentiment in Simply Chartruese. Lastly, I added the ruffled ribbon in Lemon Tart saddle stitch. Since I waited until the day before the hop to make my card and Tropical Storm Debby was hindering my ability to photograph my card outside, this was the best that I can do.



I also thought I would share a pic of my assisstant, daughter who was dancing around on the porch making sure that my card did not blow away with the wind and rain. We had just come back from a hairstyle birthday party. Although some of her hair came out of her braid, if you look closely, you will notice the synthetic blue hair weaved throughout. She also has new purple, sparkly nails. Thanks for pausing long enough in your dancing, Leah, to let me snap this photo.

  1. Absolutely stunning Deb. Pretty Peonies is such a beautiful set. Your card is so gorgeous and your daughter is a little cutie too. I just heard on our local news that Debby is not going to upgrade to a hurricane. That is good news.
