PTI Blog Hop Maravelous Monograms

What a fun theme for the PTI blog hop this month ....monograms.

I knew I wanted to use cream, red, and black for this challenge as I love design "classic" things in that trio.   I hunted for the "perfect J" and found this one in the back of the stash so I am happy to use it.   Next I pulled my papers, got out several PTI dies and then it took 10 minutes to pull this together.  I will use this cards someday soon.

It's Pinwheel with for the PTI MIM

I am so glad that Ashley decided to use pinwheels as her challenge this week.  What a fun way to spend a winter evening here.   It doesn't snow often here in the Valley of the Sun but is certainly was fun.   So I pulled out some scraps, washi tape, of course my PTI stamps and then the heart border die cut.   Pink, green, and orange are some of my favorite colors to make cards out of.

PTI and watercolor

This mornings post brought back sweet memories as my mother was an artist who loved to water color. To keep me out of her paints I had my own set. She loved to paint me I like to make messes. So I stamped the peonies and the went in and water colored in some shades. I am very happy with the results.

PTI's YOF Lily of the Valley

I bought the Lily of the Valley stamp set sometime ago and have tried it a couple of times.   NO success and this stamp set has beat me.   So this morning when I saw that there were die cuts to go with it I might win the fight.   So to do the challenge was to leave a comment or to make a project using one of the YOF's stamp sets.  Hmmmmm problem I only have one and that one is Lily of the Valley.   Comment/Project???? Which is it.   Well I made this card and I have to admit I was happy with the finished project.   The small stamp made a very pretty background.   My coloring still stinks but this will work for a friends someday.  The sentiment is from Flower Fusion 2.
