Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

I had fully intended to participate in the "first-ever" Papertrey Ink Blog Hop tomorrow, but life is unpredictable and "life" will not allow the time. I'll catch y'all next month.

Polka Dots & Paisley

By far, the Stampin' Up set that I have enjoyed the most is Polka Dots & Paisley. I have found so many uses for this stamp set ...from the obvious, cards ... to scrapbook pages and wrapping paper. I love it, love it, love it.

Surprisingly, my favorite stamp from the set is the polka-dot background. It is very subtle and it looks great when used tone on tone with Versa Mark ink. I find myself using this particular stamp over and over. But, I didn't use it on this card, did I? Go figure?

I'm not sure who the recipient of this card will be, but, whoever receives it, I hope they will enjoy it. I sure do.

Stamps: Polka Dots & Paisley
Card stock: Old Olive, So Saffron & Cameo Coral
DP(Desinger Paper): Petals & Paisley
Ink: Old Olive
Accessories: Target- paper flowers; Brads- Making Memories; Ribbon: Michael's

New Design

I stayed up way past midnight (thanks to the time change) and worked on my blog header. I am very happy with it and now that I know how to do it, maybe I'll change it up once in a while. I really like the flowers in the left hand corner ... they make me happy. I still have some "tweaking" to do, but I'll save that for tonight. I think I'm finally getting a hang of this blogging thing! Now I just have to do something about my cheesy picture :).

I am trying to re-design my blog to make it look "prettier". I am doing this during pre-school hours. Have you ever tried typing with a wiggly 5 year old on your lap? I'm sure many of you have. Anyway, please bare with me as I make some changes in the next few days. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
