August 2013 PTI Blog Hop

 So glad I could find time to play along with the hop this month!
The summer has been flying by & finding time for crafting has been a challenge!
Here's my take:
 For the record, this would've been so fast if I had all those ink colors.
But I don't.
So I sat & tried to combine inks for a crazy amount of time to get close.
Crazy amount of time.
The aqua mist & smokey shadow (sentiment) are PTI.
I love that I pulled the chevron stamps out, and the sentiment is from Butterfly dreams; vintage cream cardstock.
I do think it's fun though. :)
I might try it again with prismacolor ink.
If I can find colors that work quickly! Ha! 
Here's the inspiration & sketch- which I LOVE!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Hopping!

It's your day...

 I love that saying! :)
Of course, every day should be 'your day'!
I finally put the die I bought from ~amy~ to use- it's memory box.
The gorgeous paper is from Basicgrey's 'fiction' pad- it's heavenly!!
 I tied a pretty bow with May Arts pink silk, and topped it with bittersweet burlap string.
Did you know there are lots of new colors of burlap string!
PTI cardstock, sentiment & SU! ink.
Totally inspired by Artful Delight's card sketch.
If you've made it this far I hope you'll scroll down to yesterday's post & check out the details for the AMAZING May Arts Grand Re-Opening Giveaway.
It's HUGE people.
Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony!

I hope you're enjoying the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony hop!
I made the cutest bicycle streamers after being inspired by this post- Thanks Virginia!!
 Doesn't this smile say it all?
 I've used the new hot pink woven chevron stripes, white curly/sparkling ribbon, (both of which hold their curl beautifully!), pink 3/8" satin ribbon, and pink/white 3/8" grosgrain stripe ribbon all tied onto a golf tee (see below!).
 The ribbon wand was so fun to make- I pulled out a rainbow of ribbon & simply tied it onto a dowel I had already! LOVE!
Here's the ribbon I used:
But look at in action!!

 Pretty self explanatory- golf tees & screw eyes!
