March Papertrey Blog Hop & CR84FN20

Hey everyone!  We have been amongst Spring Break here and I have had NO mojo lately.......I mean none.  I still have most of last month's PTI release and now this month's release still to put away but I did break out one of the newest sets that I just LOVE.....Sending You to use for the PTI blog hop!

I have some fun things planned for the next two weeks and one is this weekend!  I get the opportunity to travel for work and meet some of my blog friends in Boston......Suzanne from the Card Yard, Christina from Sea Glass and Sentiments, and Jessica from The Paper Parade!  We are planning on meeting for dinner and I couldn't be more excited!  See you tomorrow!


I used one of my favorite.....did I say favorite? color combinations!!!  It just so happens to be the color palette for CR84FN this week!  This month's blog hop theme was to use embroidery floss in a unique way.  Here I used it and made french knots for the centers of my flowers and then did some stitching as a border!



My friend Jen will laugh when she sees this card........we've been talking about this embossing folder this week and yes I have to admit that am a bit absent-minded.  Jen, I bought this embossing folder set a few weeks ago and wondered why it was familiar when you showed it to me!  I had already bought it!  That's what I'm saying that I have had no mojo........I hadn't even remembered I'd bought it because it's piled with all my things to put away!  Oh my.  I sure hope this happens to someone else!!

Here is the color palette from CR84FN this week.  Enjoy the Blog Hop!!

As soon as I finish typing this I am going to do a search for that embossing folder! I love it with that Royal Velvet paper. It is so crisp and perfect. Your card is so nice Amy. If I had that folder I would case your card right now!

Oh, this is beautiful, Amy! I love those colors (why do I not have any good purples in my CS collection???) and those cross-stitches are adorable. Nicely done!

Amy, you made me laugh...I bought two sets of the same Spellbinder dies..that is one of those confessions we can make to our blogging/crafty friends but maybe not our husbands! I love your card...as always...all your details are fabulous. The xxx kisses I love! Have a great weekend!

Yikes, I'm still going through the blog hop. This card is sweet and elegant at the same time, something you do so well. Great positioning of the crossed stitches. I need to keep them in mind for future cards because they add such a special touch.
