Blog hop inspiration

Great picture...little time.

So not my best work...

I just ran out of time...

My sink clogged up after a lot of cooking yesterday and I can't get a hold of my plumber...
That's my excuse... Oh and we are dog sitting two rambunctious Labs...
Very cute...very busy!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

Create a project utilizing inspiration you've seen during release week. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product


I cannot wait to get Wrap it up die set for this very reason. I LOVE Betsy's letterbox!!!
ABSOLUTELY adorable!!!

The woman's conference at my church is coming up in February and Betsy's box inspired me to make a Valentines one to sell at that conference.

I used Pure Poppy and Stampers Select card stock.

I have these heart rhinestone stickers and the felt heart sticker in my stash,

I LOVE Big Basics dies: Love You.
It was a PERFECT choice for Valentines!

After I photographed the box, it made me wonder if  people give gift cards for Valentines...
I suppose I could make a few with the slot and gift card envelope...or just a place to write a note...
anyway, I took my cue from Betsy and didn't add the envelope!

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and assembly line cards.

This was a timely challenge.
One of my dear friends ordered a dozen Thanksgiving cards.
I played catch-up all week after spending so much time getting ready for my sale.
So I finally made it to my craft room today...

I absolutely adore Autumn Adornments Stamp Set.
I use it any chance I get.

So it was a perfect choice.
The felt leaves and acorns were from my stash...
Made making 12 cards MUCH faster.

A dozen cards...all done while watching the Chiefs squeak out a win!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
