Another Round of Blast from the Past

It's time for another Blast from the Past blog hop! Thanks for stopping by =)

At 11:30 last night, I was making the final touches on my card after a great riding lesson (this week - ON the horse) and when MrP came down, he said "Do you NEED to do that tonight?" Yes, I replied. I wanted to do it and I signed up - this ensures I'm using the stamps you so generously pay for..." and then no further questions. I guess I justified it - even if I was a little slow getting this card ready. I used the sketch by super talented Sankari as inspiration since I love a good starting point.


And I came up with this card for my sweet niece who visited me on the weekend and had the most adorable reactions to my cards in my craft area. "Ohhhhh...I can't wait to get this!!" (really - is there anything more rewarding for a simple paper crafter than a great reaction to your creations - even if they come from an almost four year old?!)


I can't wait to ship it out to her. It's got pink and sparkles.....while there's no butterflies, I know she's going to love it. I hadn't inked up TE's Fish in Love yet and I wanted to sparkle it up. I didn't have the fabulous Animal Love Sentiments that matched, so I partially inked up a sentiment from Berries & Cherries. I found these buttons in my latest Key Ingredients monthly subscription and I was thrilled to be able to use them on this card.


Be sure to stop by the rest of the blog hop participants - there's sure to be tonnes of eye candy with all those TE goodies.
