♥ January PTI Blog Hop Challenge ♥

♥♥♥ For today's Simon Says Post, please scroll down! Thank you! ♥♥♥

I couldn't wait to join in on the fun in this months PTI Blog Hop! The challenge is a fun one! The challenge is to pick a favorite project from 2011 and create a new one inspired by that project!


I must admit though, this card from last year is not my all-time fave from last year but it used one of my all-time fave stamp sets! PTI's Love Lives Here. The original post is HERE.


My new card uses the Love Lives Here set as well as my other all-time fave stamp set, Garden Variety. Oh, I could just use both of these sets forever and never touch another.


The papers I used are by Echo Park, Making Memories and My Mind's Eye. I also used PTI's Seed Packet Frame die, a punched heart, heart stick pin, pearls, satin ribbon and chunky glitter.


I hope you all have a sweet nighty night!!

Lovely! Great idea to pair LLH with the seed packet for a perfect vintage look!

BOTH are FABULOUS! Really LOVE seeing a re-make of a card we already thought a FAV and the many different ways to re-do it into a new FAV!!!

I love everything about both of your cards, the vintage feel and the colors etc etc etc. I agree, those stamp sets are some of the best.

Well if this isn't a sweet combination of sets! Love them so much, too! Your colors are wonderful with the burgandy and pink. What a fantastic red BOW! PS...Go Bills! Awwwww geeeee, maybe next year. So for now, I'm on the Giants bandwagon, too. At least they are both from New York :)!!

I have both these sets and really enjoyed seeing how you combined them into such a sweet card. Love all the layering and details. the floral patterned paper peeking out from the seed package is such a pretty touch.
