Be Kind PTI May 2017 Blog Hop

PTI Blog Hop
Time for the Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop!
This month’s inspiration photo:
 
 PTI Courage & Kindness, Roadtrip Pattern Paper; Distress Oxide Peeled Paint. Fired Brick, Worn Lipstick, Vintage Photo: Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins

 

 

This is such a fun stamp set this flower comes together so easily.  I have been dying to play with my oxides that came this week and finally was able to open them up.  I inked the flowers up with worn lipstick and then fired brick right over the top and it worked great.  I think it gives the flowers some depth and kind of a mottled effect.  I was inspired by this great layout.

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

PNW Birthday Buddies Blog Hop for Kimberly!

 
!!Happy Birthday Kimberly!!

Please join us in wishing our friend Kimberly a very happy birthday!  Kimberly is one of the sweetest and most talented people I know.  If it wasn’t for her at our crafty days I would never actually make anything, I would just sit and talk.  She always brings the most awesome make and takes for all of us.  I tried to case some of her watercolor cards for this hop but I could not do it so I cased a card I saw at CHA from Altenew and I am happy with how it turned out.  I am going to keep practicing so that I can actually case some of Kimberly’s gorgeous creations.

 


I embossed and watercolored the Altenew Persian Motifs flower with Tim Holtz markers and a water-brush.





Kimberly I hope you are surrounded by family and friends today and feel totally loved throughout the year! Happy Birthday my friend.


Here are the links to all the other buddies.  Please be sure to leave Kimberly birthday wishes on her blog!

Happy Birthday Laura!

 
!!Happy Birthday Laura!!

Please join us in wishing our friend Laura a very happy birthday!  We met Laura at a local card class and fell in love with her.  I think she is the calmest of the group.  Although I think she gets nervous sometimes when going places with a couple of us, who shall remain unnamed, we always get where we were going albeit via “off ramps and parking lots” and there is LOTS of laughing along the way.  
 

We have a wonderful group of girls and I encourage you to find crafters in your area to get together with and hopefully you realize, like I did, that you aren’t the only hoarder collector out there and meet some truly wonderful people!  I promise you won’t regret it! 

I used the new Concord and 9th Happy Word Stamps and Happy Card Frame Dies.  I watercolored the flower with zigs and a water-brush.





Laura I hope you are surrounded by love and laughter today and throughout the coming year! Happy Birthday my friend.


Okay first up on the hop is Kimberly


Please be sure to leave Laura some birthday wishes, I have linked her blog up at the bottom of the list!
