Papertrey Ink Make it Monday: Window Screen Cards

This week on Papertrey Ink, the Make it Monday challenge is all about window screen cards.  I had a lot of fun coming up with a couple of them.  I don't have a large enough heart die to use, so I used my hexagon die set for the first card I made.  I also included a photo of Melissa Phillips beautiful window screen card sample.

Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop #3

Here's my last entry in the Pretty in Pink blog hop:

I used some washi tape to make the stripes on the scalloped piece.  It's hard to see, but the white heart actually has some clear embossing on it in a cross-hatch sort of it a bit of shine!  And the photo corners are made from some glittery yummy paper...again hard to see in the photo.

I just love PINK...and Papertrey Ink is highlighting this beautiful color this month for the monthly blog hop Pretty in Pink.  Here's my second entry for the hop:

Happy Saturday!

Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop: Pretty in Pink

Papertrey Ink is hosting its monthly blog hop and this month it's all about PINK!  I just happen to love the color pink, and my mother-in-law's birthday is in just a few days, so I made a card just for her.  Below you can see Papertrey Ink's inspiration photo along with my card.

Papertrey Ink Angled Backgrounds Challenge

This week, Ashley Newell is hosting the Make It Monday series over at Papertrey Ink with angled backgrounds as the focus.  Today, I celebrated my mother's birthday by picking her up and bringing her to my house for a little one-on-one crafting time.  I showed her how to make some really cute Valentine's cards.  I had made a few samples last night, and my angled background card was one of them.  First of all, here's Ashley's card:
