Papertrey Ink January 2011 Blog Hop

I decided to participate in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop challenge and I made it with 3 minutes to spare! Nothing like waiting until the last minute!


I have LOVED Papertrey Ink products since they began as a company. The first thing I ever bought from them was some cute ladybug notecards for my Mother-in-law (who is ladybug crazy) and then lo and behold...they made a stamp set to match! I was so excited to get it and have been hooked ever since.

The challenge this month was to use a set that has never been opened or has been gathering dust. Well, as I just moved this summer - I have a lot of dusty stamp sets! I chose to use the Vintage Picnic set. It is so cute and very versatile. I wanted to make a card that would celebrate Valentine's Day, but was not so specific that I couldn't use it at other times too. I am really happy with the way it turned out. Hope it makes you smile!

I saw your card on the PTI blog hop and I only have time for a handful, no way I could get through all 253 cards. But I definitely wanted to comment on your eye catching creation. So many layers perfectly put together.
