PTI May 2011 Blog Hop

It's that time again for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! This month's theme was flowers. I only own one set of PTI flowers, which is the special CHA set that I received last year and I really love it. I hope that you enjoy the card I've come up with. I plan on getting more flower sets from PTI...many, many more...soon!!! Can't wait to hop around to all the blogs today!

SSC Monthly Blog Hop – May 25

Hi there! I've got a special card for the SSC Monthly Blog Hop for this month. The theme was to use masking on your project. I have to say, this is NOT a strong suit of mine, but I did a simple mask and I have to say, I love it!! I will definitely be attempting more masking on my cards in the very near future.

I made this as a little thank you card for my son's Kindergarten teacher. Thought the paper I had in my scraps was a perfect fit for a teacher. You can see the detail in the circle that I masked out the center of the circle and stamped smaller circles inside that I colored with a Copic marker. Just the right touch. And the wee pencil...too cute! The school year ends next week and I'm having a hard time coming to grips with the fact that he's going to be a 1st grader!!! **sniff**

Please leave a comment and be sure to visit all the blogs in the hop! Here's a direct link for the blog hop: Join in on the hop and sign up at Simply Scrapping Crafts!! It's a great community to share your creations.

I would love if you would follow my blog as well. Thank you for "hopping" by!
