PTI January Blog Hop!!

Beautiful Blooms II, Fillable Frames 4, Honeybees, Polkadot Basics

Through The Trees. The best stuff I've ever found for masking is this stuff here. The entire back is sticky so it stays put while you buff your background color on.

I have the Friend Jars/Fillers as well as the dies, but hadn't even used them yet. So I thought it'd be neat to make a gatefold card. I cut the Graphix sticky back transparency sheet using the Jar die and stick it right over the paint brush. Then I used the sentiment "You color my world" from the TT: Valentines set which I thought was a perfect fit for this stamp combo! I photographed this card at an angle so you can see the shiny transparency. Makes it look like a real jar, plus it was so easy just to stick that die cut on since its back is sticky. Looks like it came from Hobby Lobby (price tag), but I think I got it at a yard sale for like a quarter or something. Score!

Here is the card showing off the gatefold a little better.

The Challenge:
Use stamps you haven't used before. Not hard for me since I haven't used 90% of mine!!
I'm changing my tired old graduation avatar to this one. I like that it's fuzzy. Kinda makes it sexy and mysterious.
Thanks for hopping by!!

Prayers again, please

My beautiful, sweet friend, Katie Renz, has been diagnosed with Stage 4 stomach cancer. She has 3 young sons who need their mama. Please band together with me and pray that God restores her body so that she can be there to raise her sons. I know without a doubt that God has the power over this dreaded disease and that He is able to send her a miraculous healing. If you would, please take a moment and get to know this lovely woman by visiting her blog and please be sure to leave her some encouraging words.
