PTI July Blog Hop



Hi everyone!  Welcome to the PTI blog hop!  I am currently away at Stamping Away!  You may ask, "What is this?"  Well, it's where my good friends, Jen Carter and Laurie Willison and I get together and stamp!  None of us could get away to the PTI Stamp-a-Faire so we thought we'd get together on our own.

Here is my card:


I took the color and some of the pattern from the quilt for my card and of course a butterfly!  This was my first time (i know i know) using Delightful Doilies!  LOVE!


Laurie was so nice to take my photo for me......my camera is currently in Boston, Massachutes on a vacation!  Thanks Laurie!  Look at this next photo for all 3 of our cards together........this pic could be in the next Papercrafts magazine, don't you think?  Laurie takes amazing photos!


Here is a picture of our workspace.........and Laurie's new craft room.  Love the paint color and it is so BRIGHT in there!  Such a great space!  


We always look forward to our get togethers.  We have lots of laughs, good eats, and make lots of memories!  Last night, Laurie lost electricity and it RAINED!  Yes, I said rain and it was soo cool last evening that we sat out on her deck and soaked it up!  

Enjoy the Blog Hop!!

Oh, wauw, Amy! This is so pretty! Love the way you used those doilies and, don't worry, you're not the only one who only admires the new stamps first for a few months before using them, hi hi, but just looking at them is fun, right?!

Love your card Amy, and I'm so jealous that you have some stamping time with other wonderfully and equally talented gals. Such a clean design here, light and airy.

Hi Amy, I'm still hopping along the old blog trail too. Love your card! And you think you have been enabled by my use of Modern Basics? Well, I need to get the M. Medallion set after seeing so many use if during this hop. Including your beautiful card!
