I'm lovin Papertrey Ink!

I have a Gruffies card almost ready to share. I don’t have it assembled yet, I’m rethinking my paper choice. The more I look at it I’m not that happy with the big pink flowers. Hopefully this evening I’ll get it finished.

For now I’ll share this card I made for one of my stamping friends, Lisa. Since Lisa received the card, its okay for me to post it now… I didn’t want her to see it before it arrived. Last month Lisa sent me a few House Mouse images that were stamped on Papertrey Ink’s (PT) white cardstock. I’ve only heard wonderful things about PT’s cardstock, but I have never purchased any. As soon as I colored this image I knew I had to have some and I was hooked! I placed my order with Papertrey Ink last Friday and my order arrived Monday… that is quick shipping! I’m totally impressed with their Stamper’s Select White Cardstock and now I’m going to have to order their Perfect Match Cardstock! Thanks Lisa for helping me see the cardstock light! My husband also thanks you for encouraging me to spend more money… LOL!

For Lisa’s card I used one of the images that she sent me, Ready to Burst Balloon. Which I have found out that this image is no longer available... too bad since it’s really cute. The designer paper is from CTMH’s Paper Garden pack and the image was colored with Prismacolor Pencils blended with Gamsol.

Don’t be surprised if you see a new look on my blog. I’m getting a little bored with my colors and layout… I’ve been thinking about changing it AGAIN! Sometimes change is a good thing. Jovi
