PTI Blog Hop

Two posts in two days after not posting for 10 months.  I think my blog may self destruct, LOL~ 

Anyway, today is the PTI blog hop.  Our theme was aqua and yellow.  I love this color combination.  And my first thought was tea party.  I pulled out the stamps and ink and went to town.  And went nowhere fast.  So then I just pulled out random dies and made some cuts.  And somehow butterflies was the theme today, just like yesterday.  Must be a sign of spring. 

Anyway, nothing special, just a bit of inking on the nestie, Distress Markers on the butterfly stamps, a Memory Box die cut on the border, and some fussy cutting.  Not my normal style at all, but I think I like it. 

PTI cardstock, stamps and ink.  Tim Holtz Distress Markers, Nesties and Memory Box Butterfly border. 

Hope your spring is as wonderful as mine has been.

For Janelle

Well, I am officially the worst blogger ever.  I have not updated in about 10 months.  So you know it must be big for me to take the time to do so. 

And there is nothing bigger than supporting a friend.  Particularly a friend who is a bit down on their luck.  Janelle is one of the sweetest ladies I've ever "met" online.  Her attitude and faith are amazing to me.  I know I couldn't be like her.  I would have buckled and questioned my faith long before now if I were in her shoes.  But she never does.  She's truly an inspiration to me and I'm sure many others. 

So this is for you Janelle.  I've been following your blog for months now and butterflies just seemed to say "Janelle" to me.  I'm not sure why, but I associate them with you.  And the sunny side of life is where you seem to always be. 

I feel honored that you share your journey with me.  May God bless you and keep you.  And may all your days be sunny. 

Amuse inks, cardstock and stamps.  PTI Wrought Iron stamps.  Momento black  ink.  Clear embossing powder. I totally stole the concept for this from Betsy Veldman.  I'm fairly certain she got my share of "creativity" too as I have almost none and she has an amazing abundance.  LOL~
