Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge

Hello there!

It's time for the PTI September Blog Hop...are you playing along?

I love the theme this month...wreaths!!!

It was so hard for me to choose which style I wanted but I came up two...


No, not your typical wreath. I wanted to go with a whispy feather-like style. Hope I achieved that look.

                                                      










For this card I used rustic cream cardstock, The Sweet Life stamp set, Snowflake Flurries stamp set and Lovely layers stamp set, all PTI. The embossing strip is from Cuttlebug. The inks are Color Box lavender, olive pastel and moss green, PTI classic kraft. The sequins are from Neat & Tangled stamps. The tiny bud is Recollections. The white flower centers are from Michaels ( they kind of look like q tips!)

 
                                  









For the heart wreath card I used white rustic cardstock, Lovely Layers stamp set and Mat Stack 2 stamp set. The twine and inks, classic kraft and berry sorbet are also PTI. Sequins are Neat & Tangled.

I had so much fun...I can't wait to see what everyone has created...more inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!

Life is Sweet

Hello there!
I have been battling with insomnia lately! For several weeks now, I just can't sleep! I am so sleepy while I am typing. I plan on hitting the sack around 10:30, but I know I'll be up at 2 am...the bags and dark circles under my eyes are getting worse!!
I do have alot on my mind and find myself thinking about what needs to be done the next day...I think I need to try some herbal tea...any suggestions?

Well, I got quite a bit of stamping done today. Always nice when that happens!
I am sharing with you what I created for CASology where the theme is autumn...

 
And also Tuesday Trigger where I drew inspiration from the flowers...
 
I was eyeing the leaf stamp set from Papertrey Ink until I came across the set Mum's the Word by PTI.
The sentiment is from The Sweet Life stamp set. Cardstock is also PTI.  I used soft shadow ink in soft cantaloupe and butter bar from Hero Arts, mudslide, heliotrope and olive pastel from Color Box.

I scattered some sequins from Neat & Tangled Stamps.

Off to dreamland....hope I stay there tonight!

Thanks for stopping by!
