Card Recognition

home sweet home




Who's ready for another PTI Blog hop?  This month Nichole challenged us to find inspiration in Rex Ray's art and I saw the blue and decided to water color the centers of the PTI mat stack stamp (it's actually from the Everyday Treats set (retired), add the PTI Places Happy Camper set (best $5 I've spent!) and my very first set of sentiments (Daily Designs) and the road from last month's Petite Places set.  I am kinda obsessed with the water coloring trend at the moment so I used a combination of water color pencils and water colors to create the background.  And because we're on a vintage trailer kick, here's a CAS card I made last night for my fabulous husband, who's building a campground.  To check out our soon-to-be campground, called the Inn Town Campground, click here.  And if these trailers have inspired you, go check out my inspiration over at Tag You're It Challenge and play along.
