It's time for another PTI Blog Hop! I just love the color palette offered by by Nichole this month. I was drawn to the lavender and green, one of my favorite color combinations. I did rediscover our desperate need for some felt in New Leaf. Fingers crossed we will see this from PTI soon!

I just love this Owl set from Melissa Bickford. And I am totally channeling Laua Bassen in using bold colors and more white space than I normally leave. Not sure what was going on with my camera and lighting - that top stripe really is Hibiscus Burst, not the orange color as it appears on my computer.

I have a couple submissions ready for the PTI 7 Year Anniversary Celebration. Nichole Heady issued this challenge on Day One, with seven color combos and 7 layouts. My goal is to tackle each sketch, but crafting time is not on my side this week, so will continue to do what I can to meet this challenge. Using a new Tim Holtz Splatters stencil, I applied a new technique I learned in the recent Online Card Class: Stenciled.
I made several different cards for Valentine's this year - but mailed all of them out before photographing, except this one. I "cased" a similar card from Heather Campbell on the Avery Elle blog but used The Sweet Life stamps from Papertrey Ink for my roses. I really like how this turned out and will be using a lot more vellum in the future.
