Card Recognition

welcome to the neighborhood






Welcome to the neighborhood!  So I love playing along with the PTI Blog Hop, seriously always amazed by the creativity out there, and I love seeing great ideas on how to use products I may already have, or ones I didn't know I needed...  This month's hop is all about paper houses and I've got to tell you about how, being literal girl that I am, I thought I had to use the template and make a paper house.  So I tried.  I failed.  I sent my blogging pal Jen an email saying I'd be embarrassed to post it, she said "cover it in glitter."  I left the project in pieces and went on to work on something else and accept that the hop wasn't meant to be.  But then this morning I saw that Lynn had made a card, wait, stop the press, I don't have to make a paper house?  So, if I'm breaking all the rules, I'm blaming Lynn!  So, I've repackaged a few items from a few other projects (go back in my blog to find the pieces!), oh the joy when you create things for no one in particular, you don't feel bad taking them apart when creativity hits you!  My project uses PTI sentiment and dies, along with some WPlus9 stamps and May Arts ribbon.  And I'm not sure I should apologize for the fact that the inspiration photo has pretty pastels and my project is kraft and red and white?  Happy Monday!  (And for those of you who read my work blog and wanted to see those wine party photos, click here).

Erin this is fabulous and I was thinking literal to until I saw Lynn`s card--whack on the head. I may not have time but your tag is fantastic!

I think I start a rule breaking trend...we might need to do this more often! Clearly I didn't read the instructions closely enough! Love your housewarming gift!
