CARDS, CARDS, and A CARD to share!!

Happy Wednesday!!! Hope your week is going FABULOUS!!! I have found some creative time! I cant stop stamping backgrounds.. which is not good! LOL! Only because I have so much PP upstairs I need to use! But with my PTI stamps it is so fun and EASY.. I cant help myself!!!

Had to use the new argyle, and anniversary set I got this month.. sigh.. I LOVE them both!

Here is my first set done in Aqua Mist/Hawaiian Shores/Spring Moss-
3 X 3 cards-

A little different style (a bit taller).... but same color combo-
and you KNOW I gotta make some in PINK! with stitching! :) Used Sweet Blush/Hibiscus/Spring Moss for these 2!
This card I wanted to be vintagey! I had some of that tissue left over I made.. so I made up another glimmer misted tissue flower.. stamped with lots of sets damask, text, polk dots 1
Used lots of stamps, and lots of colors.. but I like how it came out.. the only bummer I only stamped a SMALL piece of it! Oh well.. guess I need to make more!!
Used my flower dies for that fun flower (#1)!
That is all I have for today!! I have to get somethings done for the teachers.. then I HOPE to scrap some.. probably not til next week.. but I will have some shares of what I create for the teachers coming up.. and I am gonna ATTEMPT to do Friday Favs. again.. wish me luck! :)

THANKS for stopping by!!
Have a GREAT day!

Tulip Festival!

Happy Tuesday!!
Thank You so much for your SWEET comments on my purse below... I would send you all it if I could.. I think you would have to fight my dear sweet Amanda to get it! HA! I have ANOTHER one in my head... will share when it is done... (lets not tell Steve that... lets tell him I have been CLEANING all week! ;)

Ok so on Sunday we went to the Tulip Festival.. our yearly trip.. WELL this year we were fairly late in going, and we had a very mild winter.. so the tulips were early.. so when we went all the tulips were topped in the fields.. BOO! BUT we still got to go to RoozenGarde it was BEAUTIFUL and I managed to still get oh.... 80ish photos! :) gonna scrap next week.. some of them I HOPE!

Just thought I would share a few of the day with ya!

I am off on a FIELD TRIP!/ Concert with Justin this AM!

Happy BLOG HOP!!! It has been 2 months since I got to play along.. I missed it so much! I was EXCITED I was able to join everyone tonite!!!

So our challenge was tissue paper~ Who would have ever thought tissue could be so FUN!!

I had a vision.. I wanted to create a little purse.. with a ruffle and a flower! So I cut this little cutie with my cricut, spray and SPRAYED my tissue with glimmer mist! (OK that was first.. it takes awhile to dry!) then got busy...

This is what I came up with! -

Used my new scallop die for the ruffle, and of course my new flower die for the flower!! :)

PTI Princess Challenge/Share!

Happy Thursday!! My gosh a WEEK since I last posted.. I cant seem to catch up.. with Vacation, After Vacation stuff, heading off again to celebrate my cousins birthday last week, and trying to get Amandas invites done.. (my baby 10 in one week! WAHHH.. yes that was me you heard crying! LOL!! time goes to fast!) ANYWAY... I am back...

This week it is my turn to host the challenge for our PTI blog group.. the Papertey Princess.. I was thinking of what I wanted to do... then I thought of SPRING.. being it is the season.. everything seems so NEW and FRESH this time of year!!

So my challenge to you is an easy peasy one! Think Spring.. Think New.. it can be anything you want it to be.. a new color combo.. a new technique you have wanted to try, NEW supplies.. ANYTHING..

Diane inspired me with her stipe paper! (she was inspired by PTIs FABULOUS Dawn) so I had to make some of the paper!
This is the PP I stamped up-

I just LOVE the colors... and YEAH I have more left!!!

For My Card
I used a NEW color combo.. Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, and Chartreuse! Used my NEW felt, Dies, and Hawaiian Shores colored items! I also used a new LO for this.. I usually always have things front and center.. decided to go a bit to the side.. I plan to make MORE like this!LOL!
Ok on with the card!
So there it is.. I hope you all can play along (ANYONE can join us!)... If you do be sure to link back here.. I have a little RAK for one lucky person who plays!! Just link your in my comments.. and I will pick a winner May 1st!!!
