The first challenge for the weekend is to make a project with a paper embellishment. There were a few cute ideas here and I picked the paper ribbon.
If you look closely you will see an iridescent thread- that is from an SAF from at least 2 years ago I believe! I'm enjoying "shopping from my stash" and using all these goodies I have (and don't use nearly enough!).
I'll warn you, most of my projects will be cards and almost all will be birthday cards and thank you cards!
Here's my card using Some Like it Hot & Think Big:
It's that time of year once again! I work hard to set aside a little time to craft once a year and because I am married to the greatest man, it is actually possible! I won't be able to participate the entire time because of a son in XC and some church commitments, but I will be here for most of the weekend!
For the first time PTI is celebrating this event as a weekend event! They celebrated 10 years in February so their theme is "anniversary" and they extended the event for this year. I personally love this as my husband and I celebrated 20 years of marriage in June!
The first challenge details are here, my inspiration photo is this one:
and my card is here using the Black & White paper & PTI cardstock (white & Hawaiian Shores):
What is a little bit "awesome" here is the circle. That is from a VERY old free printout from a PTI anniversary freebie or SAF freebie from many years ago! I found it when I was getting my things together for this weekend. I had no idea if I would use it and here it is! Perfect!
