Papertrey Ink - January Blog Hop



It's the 25th of the month, which means it's a Blog Hop over at Papertrey Ink. This month's challenge is to dust off an old stamp set or use a set that has never seen ink. Everyone always creates such gorgeous inspiring cards for this hop ~ check it out here

I love my Fancy Flourishes and the beautiful sentiments in my Fall Elegance sets but don't use then as often as I should. What better time than PTI's Blog Hop to ink em up? You can click on the photo for a larger image and hopefully will see all the bling on my "flourishy" butterfly (which I had seen on the Oh-so-talented Dawn McVey's blog a while back) and sparkly ink on the sheet music image.

I made this card for my hubby who has been feeling rather poorly lately. I am praying this is not serious and always have "HOPE" for good test results for the CT Scan today and the Bone Scan next week.

Thank you for stopping by ~ it means so much to me {{{HUGS}}}

  2. This is a beautiful card Helen. The flourishes and carefully placed sparklies are perfect. I hope your husband has good results on his test, this card should certainly cheer him up.

  3. I love the colours you have used and the Flourishes set now has to go on my wish list. The way you have mirrored the flourish design is awesome. I hope your husband gets the results you both want. Its a very scary time waiting as I know from when my husband was ill.
