Peace Within


Good morning and happy Sunday my friends!  I didn't have time yesterday to play along with any of the PTI Stamp-a-Faire activities but I did enjoy seeing all of the gorgeous creations.   However, I did have time earlier in the week to play along with the PTI Blog Hop for this month.  There were so many CAS sketches and gorgeous color combos from which to choose!  I had my new Mighty Oak stamp set so I was itching to give it a try.  The end result was using a bunch of the die cut leaves and stamping them to create borders.  

While I was getting inky with this new set, I decided to play along to create a one layer card too.  Hope you like both of them and happy blog hopping.  I'm off to run out to get donuts for a certain little seven year old who is requesting them!
