Delightful Doilies are sooo delightful!!

Its been a super busy weekend and we still don’t have a computer at home. Luckily my husband brought his computer home from work so I have a chance to do a quick blog post.

I have really enjoyed the week of honouring over at Joy Taylor’s blog and she has posted a challenge for her readers to do the same. There are so many people I get inspiration from, but I really love Dawn McVey’s work and chose a card from the Love Birds release in December. I decided to do some Mother’s Day cards and did a lot of variations on color. Here are my creations:

Sorry for the dark photos – couldn’t get any good pictures of these with good natural light. The first card uses the new Papertrey Ink color, Royal Velvet – it looks very blue here, but it is a beautiful, vibrant purple and I can’t get enough of yellow & purple at the moment. In all these cards I have used the color that is 1 shade lighter for the layer on Mat Stack 3 – it is hard to see in the picture, but very nice in real life!
Here is Dawn’s card that I used as inpsiration:
Thanks to Dawn for being so easy to ‘honor’ and thanks to Joy for this wonderful challenge!

Papertrey Ink Anniversary Month

Its a big month over at Papertrey Ink. They are celebrating their 4th year – its hard to believe that they’ve only been around 4 years. It seems every issue of every magazine has at least 1 Papertrey Ink product on every page. I have only recently started card making and have already built up quite the stash – every set is gorgeous!

Over at Nichole’s blog they are doing a BIG giveaway (huge, actually!) and in order to play along we’ve all been asked to select our favorite projects from the last year. This is a tough one as every thing I do probably has a PTI product, but I’ve narrowed it down to a few cards.

I posted this one recently for the January Blog Hop – I like that I did something a bit different on this card with the ribbon vase.

I also like this simple card I made a few months ago:
Lastly, I was happy with this set using Asian Fusion – one of my first PTI stamp sets and still one of my faves!
I can’t wait to see what PTI has in store for the year ahead!
Thanks for stopping by!
