Papertrey Anniversary #4 card

 To celebrate Papertrey's 4th anniversary they are having contests with amazing prizes! One of the ways to win is by making a card with the color scheme that one of their designers picked out. My card uses Lisa Johnson's color choice (Pure Poppy, Spring Rain, Kraft and Vintage Cream)
I used Tiny Treats and the woodgrain texture plate.It is very late here so no natural light.
OK, now I can go to sleep and dream of winning!

Happy Birthday Papertrey #4

WooHoooooo! Papertrey Ink is celebrating it's 4th birthday and are giving away the most awesome prize package imaginable! 

I found Papertrey 2 years ago while they were celebrating their second birthday and have been a faithful fan ever since! (I think I might actually be addicted ;-)  

Each month as they come out with new products, I find myself glued to my computer searching all the designer's blogs for more inspiration and then ordering way too much but still wishing that I ordered more!
Sound like an addiction huh?! (but a good addiction!)

Papertrey Ink, ...If loving you is wrong...i don't wanna be right! haha

Anyway, Nichole asked what our favorite project that we made this year is and I thought about it and came up with....

I made this card for my mom for her birthday which is 2 days after Christmas. I never posted it on my blog because I copied it pretty completely from Betsy Veldman. When I saw Betsy's card I immediately thought of my mom who loved ice skating so much! I love all of Betsy's cards and this was so perfect that I just had to buy On Ice and the die that made it so easy!

Of the cards that I made myself, I liked this one the best....

I made this card for my daughter's 21st birthday. She is away at college so I sent her 21 gifts of 21 things& 21 cards for her 21st birthday. This one is special to me because I used Tiny Treats to represent each of us. Notice mom is the wise owl! Dylan's nickname is Dino, Bailey loves cats and the rabbits in our yard drive dad crazy! Wrinkles is our good old dog that we all love.

And then lastly, this was my favorite card to make because it was just so much fun. I used only white cardstock and used ink and Copic markers and lots of my Papertrey stamps to make this...

I am so glad we didn't have to pick our favorite Stamp set because I have LOTs of favorites. My FAVORITE is usually only my favorite until I see my new FAVORITE the next month! Keep up the amazing work Papertrey and I hope you have Many Many Many more successful years!
