Flower clip

May PTI's blog hop theme is FLOWERS!!
I had been tempted to do some flower clips but didn't seem to have the right fabrics. My daughter's school has the students wearing uniform shirts. She had a really old one, so instead of throwing it away, I cut it up and used my PTI flower dies to make her a clip!! Added a cute button from my PTI stash!
I made two different ones. One with a flower and one with a button. I think they turned out so cute!! I just cut out a felt (PTI) circle and used it on the bottom.
Sorry for the bad picture, I had to take it with my phone :(
Thanks for stopping by!!!

On this card, which I made for another friend named Carol. I used some goodies that I got from my friend Molly on the Valentine Exchange that Michelle organized. That was really fun :)

My ink and sentiment are from PTI and the pp is from BG~Urban Prairie. The ribbon I got from Walmart.

I used the sketch from Clean & Simple FTL 132.

I made her some magnets as part of her gift. I used the pp from BG and the frame from Fillable Frames from PTI. I cut out the bird.

Thanks for looking and have a GREAT DAY!!

ps: its getting really hot here in Florida :0

Hello Sunshine

Hello Friends!

I made a card for a friend last week and wanted to make another one just for fun! I used my pp from BasicGrey~Urban Prairie. Beautiful papers by the way :) The pink flower was made from a PTI flower die and outer flower was made from the spellbinders big scallop die. I also used the banner die from PTI and one of their yummy buttons! The sentiment is from the Fillable Frames collection. I cut out the butterfly from the pp. Simple yet so pretty, if I do say so myself ;)

I was somehow inspired by Gretchen's card HERE! She's always making beautiful cards!!

Baby Shower

Last weekend I was invited to a babyshower. I knew I wanted to "make" her a gift. Of course I bought her some cute boy outfits but then I knew I wanted to use my number dies from PTI. So I went with making 12 tags. One for each month before he reached his first birthday. I used mostly scraps :) Mostly everything was PTI.

I was inspired by Shari's card from Hero Arts. My paper piecing was inspired by Moxie Fab World's Stamp it! Technique's Week: Paper Piecing Challenge.

For month 9 I used Leo from Jane. Super cute!!!

Thanks for looking!!

Just wanted to wish everyone a fabulous 2011!!
I want to focus on my family and friends. To get my anxiety under control and continue to be healthy and happy! Its hard when you have 2 businesses but we CAN do it!!
I haven't had much chance to create cards (I only gave 2 Christmas cards) and had an order for 3.
I would love to get back on track to creating more!!
Thank You God for letting us be healthy and happy!!

On another note:
