January PTI Blog Hop!

Yeah!! It's Blog Hop time!!
I haven't had the time to participate for the last couple of months, but January is here and I am ready!!! This month we had to decorate our card not only on the outside, but also on the inside. Here is what I came up with.


I used Kraft cardstock with Smokey Shadow, Raspberry Fizz and some random white I had lying on my craft desk. I am still in love with Polka Dot basics and I also used an image from Love Songs and the sentiment is from the first Button Bits set. I also added some random ribbon and BG Bling to the front. Now...to the inside!!


Since the paper is dark and my favorite white pen just ran dry, I needed someplace inside to add a nice handwritten note. So I replicated the outside colors inside, along with my apron lace border punch and some more BG bling. And I was SO crazy I even decorated the envelope!!


There is my simple entry for tonight's blog hop! Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I am looking forward to being inspired by you all tonight!!! Happy Monday!
