Can you say Argyle?

I am so excited about this new set from PTI!!  I knew as soon as my new goodies arrived that this was THE set I wanted to play with.  Now, I apparently can't count since my argyle on this card got a little "off", but I like how it turned out anyway!


I also knew that I wanted to create something a little less "masculine" with argyle my first time around!  So, I used a favorite color lately of mine.......Smokey Shadow.  Ahh, and paired with pink??  The inspiration for the colors actually came from a sweater I bought today at the Goodwill store that had....yep you
guessed it.....argyle on it in these colors! 


Well, that's it for today....my creativity has been GONE I tell ya.....but now that I have some new goodies to play with and a new blog group I joined (see my sidebar), I should have plenty to keep me busy for a while!  Make sure to check out all these talented ladies on their blogs!!
