It was my dad's birthday last week. So I made him a card...
It was a great excuse to use my new Simon speech bubble die! Love it! So I thought I would also link up with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge...Anything Goes!
Happy Birthday Dad! Hope it was a great one.

Last week I made a thank you card for a special friend who is always doing nice things for me. It was a great excuse to use some stamps that hadn't seen ink yet!
The orange and kraft (with a pop of teal) seemed to fit right into this season so I linked up with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge...Halloween Colours.
Thanks again Av!!

My friend Dee inspired me to play along with the PTI blog hop this month. I had honestly forgotten all about it, but then I saw her blog post AND then yesterday I walked home in a raging BLIZZARD so it kind of got me into the Christmas tag making spirit.
Here is the tag I made using all kinds of PTI products, Kraft cs, tag die, and stamps from my Winterberry set and Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers. I heat embossed the elements...they look very nice IRL. I love the way PTI cardstock can handle the heat embossing.
And then I made a few more...
I have the "to and from" on the back. I think I will give this set to my mom. She loves wrapping her presents so nicely.
I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else did on the blog hop!
Have a great weekend!

My dear friend (and very talented...but she doesn't have a blog, otherwise I would link it here...hint hint) Patricia is having a birthday soon. I popped this card in the mail for her. Hope she likes it!
Happy birthday Patricia!!

I have been dying to start scrapping our pictures of our British Columbia trip last summer. My BFFs and I bought and shared some very fun AC papers and embellies a few weeks ago in Buffalo so I couldn`t resist diving in when I had some time to scrap this past weekend on a girls` weekend.
I linked up with Simon Says Wednesday Challenge...Going Dotty.
thanks for dropping by...and BTW I think this means I win the bet on who would scrap these papers first!!!

I saw that this week Jan over at LRW issued a challenge for fences. I made this card for my friend Tina's upcoming birthday...perfect for this challenge!
Tina has recently made a huge career shift so I thought this sentiment from my PTI "Pedal Pusher" set was perfect. Inside it says "I hope this is your best year yet." I just love that sentiment.
I also linked up with the Wednesday Simon Says Stamp challenge..."Going Dotty" for my polka dot grass!
Happy birthday Tina and I can't wait for our girls' weekend!
