PTI Blog Hop Old and New






From Nichole...

This month, in honor of the new year, we are challenging you to pick your 

favorite project from 2011 and share it with all of us!  To take it a step 

further, you are also challenged to create a second card that is inspired by 
the favorite project you select.  Your new version of an old favorite could 
carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets.  We look forward 
to seeing your best creations from 2011 as well as one of your first projects 
for 2012!

Here is my favorite project from 2011.  I loved it the most 'cause it was a fun way 
to share a vintage creative find with the friends I love.
Buttons, ribbon and vintage cream cardstock are all from PTI.

Here is a new project for 2012...


I used the Wishing You set, stuck with the blues, 
ovals and rick rack from the
2011 creation.
Everything PTI except the rick rack and Nestabilities 


Happy Stamp Day.  God Bless.
