PTI Blog Hop


This months Blog Hop is to use anything spring. Well, you can't beat flowers for spring or this new FAB Melon Berry color. I can't wait for my bulbs to bloom and making this card just helped me wait one more day...

I actually used Berry Sorbet to stamp the smaller flowers but did so over Fresh Snow ink. And amazingly the ink matches the Melon Berry Ribbon. Who knew?? And here is a close up of the tag. Take a gander if you will... what do you see????
This cute button I found in my stash says Elizabeth. Wha??? Why on earth would it say that? I don't know why, I'm assuming its for a line of clothing or something, but how cute would it be for a friend named Elizabeth??? I think VERY! Only problem-o is, I do not have a friend by that name. Hmmmm. Must go out and make more friends!


Edited to add:  Please leave me a comment if you have a friend named Elizabeth, that would like a handmade card. I would be happy to send it to you!!! (cause seriously, I don't have one friend named Elizabeth ; )

Thanks for looking and have a great time at the Blog Hop!

I SO wish I had a button that said "Elizabeth" on it! My BF from college is an Elizabeth, and I have a niece AND a great niece named Elizabeth too! Anyway, your card is stunning. and I'm amazed that the ribbon matched the berry sorbet ink because of the white. I'm gonna try that for sure!

That is totally gorgeous! And my mother's name is Elizabeth and my father just passed away about a month ago, I bet she'd like some bright cheerful happy mail, if you don't already have a suitable recipient.

Hi...it is just so prettty!!!!!!! ...and yes...I would luv to have it as my very favorite niece...is named Elizabet..but..right now she is blue...not orange! as she just had a baby (#2) and is in the overwhelm, sleep deprivation mode combined with so much illness in her family and the gray skies of MI that I cannot tell you how it would make her day! She luvs to scrap..does such pretty work too, but has no energy to even enter he scrap room! She is often a puddle of tears right now..just a very emotional gal..I actually think it might be more fun if you send it to her LOLOL...she would get such a charge out of that...WEll I see many want it...so good luck to us all...but if u ever find another button with Elizabeth on it..mail me and I will buy it! Ty Cher
