OK this is my first PTI Blog hop!!! So hope I am doing everything correctly :)
This is my Birthday card! The PTI products that I used are the beautiful new Raspberry paper, Borders & corners (circles) and Mixed messages....which is my usual go to for phrases! Just for the fun of it I also made this little matching flower holder....the tiny little vase fits perfectly inside!!
For this little flower holder I used the raspberry DP paper to cover little drink coasters I got at a local restaurant. Just a little something to go along with the card....everyone loves flowers!!! Just the perfect size for my desk at work!!! here they are together!!!That's it for my Blog hop post!! now I am off to the most exciting part...to see what all the other crafters have done!!!
Thanks for visiting!!!

It has been a very long time since I have had the time to participate in a sketch. Over at CPS they are letting us choose any of the previous sketches....so as you can see I did choose a very simple one! I believe it is #38. The paper is from PTI...I just added some black dots to the pink & white DP. I also added pink & black dots to the Just rite stamp border. Really simple!!!
That's it for today! As always....thanks for the visit!!!

I used 2 never used before punches from Martha Stewart...the butterfly's & the dot border. I really had fun FINALLY using the double sided stickers I got last fall at the CKC. These are so awesome!!! If you have never used them before...they are super duper sticky on both sides & then you can add glitter (as I did) or flock or beads or whatever you want stuck to your card. these are from doodlebug designs. All papers are from SU.
well it is back to the drawing board! I have a few cards I am trying to finish...Hope at least some of you are enjoying nice weather!!
Have a good week!!!!

Greetings all!!! It is sneak peak time again at Clear Artistic Stamps!! Belinda has decided to give us all a bit of fun with this one...don't know about you, but I could use a bit of fun! some warming laughter & silliness!!! Tee hee hee....revolving around this release...is a wedding! so save the date!
I received this invitation.....
I have also been invited to be a bridesmaid!! ;) I said OK...as long as I didn't have to wear a "bunny"outfit! :O Hey if anyone has any ideas on fun food or anything to do with the wedding...feel free to leave your ideas in the comment section!!! You would be surprised what silly things your mind can come up with!...Like...of course...carrot cake, doing the bunny hop at the dance...wonder what the vows should be???? or who should marry them???? I thought Alvin & the chipmunks would be a good choice for a band to play at the wedding dance! Silly, Silly!!!! oh well...have a bit of fun with it, if you like!
