PTI April Blog Hop!


Are you blog hopping today with PapertreyInk?
Here's the inspiration Nichole has given us:


Don't know what the weather's like where you are, but if this doesn't 
sing spring, don't know what does!

Used Coverplate: Stripes for my bg, doing several for another 
card challenge, and loving the sponged ink stenciled look.
(Wasn't that a MIM some weeks ago?)


When my new Super Swoosh dies came, I didn't separate the words, but cut them 
all, loved each one, and decided to create a greeting card set with them.


All the sentiments are double layered, white and true black.


I die cut, stamped and arranged the bouquets, and the cards came together quickly.
Those are matching envelopes peeking out behind the card.


I did a set of 4 cards, There's a 5th sentiment, Congratualtions. Will use that one later.

Pretty much all PTI:
Bitty Bouquets stamps and dies
Flower Favorites (butterfly)
Super Swoosh dies
Stripes Cover Plate.


PTI A2 sized envelopes,
 card stocks and dotted vellum.
PTI Inks

Can't wait to visit other blogs to see how you all were inspired!
