Papertrey Ink Blog Hop



I decided to hit my craft room today after being on hiatus with all the busyness of Christmas!  I wanted to play along with the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop which has this really festive inspiration photo to trigger our mojo!  I was drawn to the happy colors and those rolls of washi tape for my inspiration.  I raided my washi drawer and found several rolls that had confetti-like backgrounds and they were in the colors I wanted!  


I love this PTI happy die and thought it would pop more if I placed it over a solid Bermuda Bay background.  The scribble flower (die cut from PTI Raspberry Fizz CS) was paired with Layered Leaves DieNamics by MFT (cut from SU Cucumber Crush CS).  An easy peasy birthday card to add to my depleted stash!

Here's hoping everyone had a really happy and blessed Christmas! We were missing one of our 3 children and his family as they were in Ontario with family.  Our fried oyster and honey baked ham dinner yesterday was so yummy and we thoroughly enjoyed trying to spoil our youngest grand child - Matilda - who is 3 months old!
