Papertrey February Blog Hop challenge

This is my first blog hop entry, heaven knows I have more than enough PTI dies, stamps etc that I could have entered before now but today just fell into the "right theme" for me, I was trying

out my new "movers and shakers"!

WOW....I do love them I have used them on three occasions now, see previous posts!!

Catching up cards....

This is a card I did for Jayne to give to Ruth, using my new zipper die from who else....Papertrey, do I sound obsessed??? They just have so many wonderful "things"!!

My "Frilly Flower die and stamp, button, twine, paper and zipper die all fromPTI, the ribbon I dyed with copic, seam binding from it Zipper stop??? I'll have to get back on that..

I have this one sympathy card that I have that I did not check for blurry...but get the idea using Rosie Posie...I like how this one turned out too. I purposely folded the corner back and snipped some of the paper to adhere on it...looks like it was 2 sided. Again, PTI dies, stamps, paper ...SU ink!!!

My Valentines

Valentine time, I was anxious to use my new flourish die from PTI, several firsts here, also used some "tpyewriter" type, so weird using a typewriter again, but like riding a bike, been many moons sice I used a manual typewriter! I found it on Craig's list, perfect shape!

I really like how these turned out, cuttlebug, sizzix hearts. little tags, PTI, paper from my stash.

A "tad" more snow

Editing to add photo of inside card a new way to put $ gift!!!

My birthday card for "Uncle Dennis", I used the Papertrey banner, tag and little tag dies and stamps, kraft paper, Ranger ink.

Here is a Cardinal in the bamboo, what a beautiful sight!

Here are my coneflowers with little puffs of snow on top.
Very cold today, 15-16 degrees, but nice bright sun.

News tonite that Whitney Houston is dead, sad, she was a beautiful singer. Dead at 48.

Ginny's frog!

A get well card for Ginny!! All Papertrey except for the seam tape ribbon.

The new flourish die adds a "flourish" Ha...ha...the butterfly a bit of whimsey, do frogs eat butterflies??? I hope not. I started out with the frog on top the flourishes, decided it needed more so I added the ribbon, colored it with copics. Still needed more so I added the butterfly...perfect!!!

"Super" Grandma's baby shower surprise!

We surprised Pam and John with a baby shower...didn't even wait for 1/2 time!!!

Karen with her awesome quilt!!! What a love she is!!

Congratulations to Eliza! I got to use my new flourishes from Papertrey, and also my "new" typewriter.

We finally celebrated Jessica's birthday. Beef O'Brady's, cupcakes that we "rounded " up from bakery. YUM

reading her card "turning 30 is an auspicious occasion!"

Mac's steak n fries

A snowy morning

Across the field, the sun was shining after the snowfall thru the clouds, beautiful light.

Cardinals are always even more gorgeous against the snow. We have not had much snow to use as a backdrop...(thankfully)
