Wish Big! {PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop}


Good morning!  I hope your Sunday is off to a great start.  We continue to enjoy beautiful weather here...if you look at my second photo you can see that our flowers are blooming.  Much earlier than normal for us, but I'll take it!  For this month's PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop, I was inspired by all the polka dots.  I made the top card first and actually started with the little tiny brad that is attached to the bow. I got some new Stampin' Up ribbon and embellishments and had to use the brad.  So...orange and green polka dots it was.  I have to say I love the color combo!

Then...I got my PTI order on Friday and went very literal with this card below.  I hope you like them both!  I'm off to check out the other participants cards and go for a quick run!  Hope you have a great Sunday.

  2. It's currently snowing out my window (and I'm not longer at the ski resort!!!). Love the polka dots on the half and half die (another item still on my wish list). And the brad works so perfectly with the first card.
