PTI Blog Hop April 2014







I have a funny story about my blog hop card this month.  I saw that the theme was Embroidered inspiration, so I pulled out my Embroidered Elegance stamp set and made my card, inspired by Maile's post here on divided panels.




After I made the card, I realized that the stamp set is called Embellished Elegance, not Embroidered Elegance.  Oh, well.  It is still what I was inspired to make after seeing the beautiful inspiration photo, and I hope that is all that counts.

I do have another idea for this blog hop, and will possibly pop back in later in the day, if I can find the time to pull it off.


I am also linking up at this week's CASology challenge where the cue word is Garden (and I am on the DT!!).  There is still time for you to play along.  There is even a prize this week.  Cathy Parlitsis from Stamps and Scrapbooks is offering this week's winner a free spot in the online Occasions 2014 Online Paper Crafting Class.


Thanks for Visiting
