May Blog Hop!


Yep! that's right!! it's PTI blog hop time again! For this month's challenge....we were simply to make a card or project using the color yellow. This is my card! Kind of different from the colors I would normally use.... but It has been so stinkin' hot here latley (in the 100's)These colors seem to scream IT'S HOT!!! LOL!!! Plus I have been planting lots of flowers yellow & orange ones & yes some of them can survive the heat!


As you can see I chose the ever so cute Tea for two & Everyday classics. All of the yellow paper is from PTI but the orange is from SU.The Little pearls as well as the ribbon are from my favorite Craft store, Michael's. The darling little roses I found a long time ago at one of our local scrapbook stores. When I saw Melissa (you can see her darling card here) use them like this on her tea pot I just had to case that Idea! The white dots I made with Martha Stewart's Opaque markers...LOVE them!! comes in a set of 5...love the size of the tips! And that about does it!!! thanks for visiting!!! Hope you all had a safe & happy Memorial weekend! Can not believe tomorrow is back to work already! Wasn't it just Friday a couple of hours ago???
