PTI April 2017 Blog Hop

What a beautiful spring here in PA.  
It was so nice over the weekend we were able to get all our flower gardens weeded and mulched, 
the fresh mulch and new plants are looking so pretty.  Spring time greens are some of my favorite colors! Along with all the gorgeous spring blooms of course! 

Today's PTI challenge is an inspiration piece.  
You can find the inspiration details and the challenge on the PTI Blog.

April Inspiration

This just looks like vintage fabric I wish I could find for my patio furniture pillows.  

This is the card I made using the colors similar to those in the photo. 

I am making a conscious effort to use more patterned paper in the design of my cards. 
I'm pretty sure I have a never ending supply at this point.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you enjoy the hop, 
and good luck if you play along! 

Happy Spring!

Welcoming Spring!

Hello everyone!
I'm so excited today, no I didn't get new stamps in the mail! I was able to walk outside without a coat, or sweatshirt or any winter clothes! It seems spring has finally arrived, and it's not raining.
I also took some time to prune some flowering bushes that I didn't do in the fall.
Now, I need to do some research and see when I have to start filling the humming bird feeders.
I'm not sure when they start to migrate.

Anyway, on to today's card.
I made this card for the SplitCoast Stampers Mystery Image Swappers group.
This month Patti sent us this cute image called Summer Afternoon from SU!

I added some PTI patterned paper and cardstock and finished with a PTI sentiment.
