Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop!


This month the challenge for the Papertrey Ink blog hop was to use FLOWERS!  Woohoo!  I'm so excited to actually get to play this month, (and very happy to say that I have made the transition to night shift and am no longer a walking zombie!).  Click on the blog hop image above and you can follow along with the hop or even play along too! I created two pieces for this month's hop, using my most recent PTI order!

The first is a seed packet/gift card holder.  As the school year is coming to a close, I think this will be perfect for my daughter's teacher.  Just a little reminder of seeds she has sewn this year!


The second is a button card with a fabric flower decoration.  I used some fabric scraps from my quilting stash and the Tattered Florals die from Tim Holtz to create a little layered flower.  This  could be used as a decorative element on a card, hanging in a sewing area, on a scrapbook page...no idea yet what I'm really going to do with it yet!



Well, thanks for looking!  Off to get ready for work, hope to hop along myself on breaks!
