It's been a while...

Hi friends,
So it seems that my last time blogging was in December 2013!

A lot has happened since that time: both happy and sad, but I'm glad to be back here posting again today. Hopefully I can remember how to do this! :)

Of course, if anything would draw me out of the woodwork it would be PTI's Anniversary! There are fabulous prizes and inspirational challenges, so I made some time to play along.

My first card is for the Mettalics and Neutrals challenge on Day 7. I used the PTI Make It Market Kit: Luxe Letterpress.

My next card is for the Maile Inspired challenge, on Day 2. I'll try to come back and link up her inspirational card. She used a cover plate and had cut patterned paper at an angle for the background, as I did.

For the Blue Ombre challenge (Day 8), I tried Nichole's post-it technique to create a blue horizon line for my bird.

The next challenge I create for was the unused stamps challenge. I don't have any unused, but definitely some that I haven't used in a long time! I made this card with Lovely Layers, an old favorite!

Finally, for the bag and tag challenge, my daughter and I made her class valentines with Tiny Treats: Valentine.

Thanks for reading to the end! Happy Valentine's Day!
