PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop

 
Good morning!  I'm still on cloud nine from attending Stamp-a-Faire this weekend and Maureen being here to visit.  Stamp-a-Faire was fabulous and I'll definitely be back later this week to share photos. It was wonderful to not only meet the design team but also so many amazing ladies who love stamping as much as I do.  Just perfect. 
Now onto my cards for this month's PTI Blog Hop.  I loved the colors from the inspiration photo. The first one is using my new Mehndi Medallions set.  This is going to get a lot of use! 

Posted by Picasa
The second card was a card I gave to Maureen to welcome her here when she arrived on Thursday!  Hope you like them both and that your week is off to a fabulous start!
Ingredients:  Cardstock:  Stampin' Up; Patterned Paper: October Afternoon Five & Dime; Stamps:  PTI Daily Design Sentiments and Simply Stationery
