PTI Blog Hop! and creating on the fly...




Tonight starting at 8pm EST, Papertrey Ink is hosting their monthly blog hop. The first month I found out about the event a day late. I wanted to get in on the fun. The second month I was out of town during the fun. This month, I almost missed it but while blog hopping earlier today I saw the reminder on Nichole Heady's blog. That was at 4pm. I had to get Joshua off the bus, settle the baby after his nap, and comfort Ryan who has another bought of strep throat. I created the following card on the fly. The challenge this month was to use scorelines as accents on your cards. I had yet to try this technique, but I knew if I ever got to it I wanted to try it with vellum. I scored my vellum with a grid pattern and right away it reminded me of the lines on peanuts (Nutter Butter cookies to be exact-yummy!). My mind then went to the Year Round Pun set with the punny sentiment, "Nuttin' Better than a true friend." Then I pulled out my Limitless Labels and true to it's name I found a way to use the little nut included in that set (it's not a peanut, but the acorn works). The card base is Lemon Tart and I added a scored border around the main rectangle (you can barely see it, click on the photo and you should get a better view). I used my photo corner punch to add the pointed edge along the white strip. To keep with the textured pattern feel of the card, I added some Berry Bliss twill ribbon and some saffron brads. It feels good when everything just falls in place. The crafting Gods were on my side this evening. Thanks for stopping by. I hope to chat a bit and join the fun after I get the boys to bed tonight!
