It's Blog Hop Time!!

It's time again for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!!!



This month's challenge was to use something yellow. Well, yellow is not a color that I use very often. So this was a bit of a challenge for me. Regardless, this is what I came up with!!






Lots of my current favorites on this card. Polka dot paper, pearls, Wishing You stamp set and my apron lace punch!! I ended up liking my final creation and I gave this card to my MIL for her birthday. Maybe i'll just have to break out the yellow more often!!

Thanks for stopping by...have fun tonight at the Blog Hop!!

I think I'm going to have to break down and make a purchase from PTI. Any suggestions on your favorites. I have to get the nuggett tin, I'm liking the polka dot background stamp everyone is using, and there is a pretty flourish I've had my eye on. Anything else need to be on my "must have" list?
