Day 5's PTI challenge was to use a stamp set that hasn't seen ink. I bought this Make a Wish set used, but hadn't used it myself yet. I also hadn't yet used the Think Big Favorites sentiment.
I think this card is springy and cheerful!
The patterned paper is My Girl from MME.
THanks for looking!

The second day's challenge for the PTI anniversary is all about Maile Belles.
Here is the card I chose as inspiration.
Here is my card. Actually two cards in different colors.
These are using the PTI Embellished Elegance set. Thanks for looking!

Here is my first card for the PTI 8th Anniversary celebration. It is based on one of Nichole's sketches.
Here's my card. I used Beautiful Brushstrokes and Embellished Elegance, with a KIS Birthday in the background.

I told you I hate the whole photographing and uploading process, right? I don't know how people keep up with daily blog posts with perfectly staged photos. Clearly I'm doing something wrong.
Anyway, I did two more cards inspired by Danielle Flanders' Make It Monday 196, Colorful Card Corners.
I took these pics with my phone. On a chair in front of the French doors in my dining room. Again, I'm doing something wrong. ;P

When I saw Ardyth's post for the latest CAS-ology challenge, I knew I had to play along. I'm in Valentine's day mode with this one, obviously.
I cut the numbers on my Silhouette. The sentiment is from PTI Love Songs (an oldie but goodie!). The chevron paper is from a MME Heirloom pad.

I rarely get the chance to play along with PTI's Make It Monday challenges, mostly because I just don't have time to make a card, photograph it, and do a whole blog post about it. I'm trying to get better about that.
This is my interpretation of Danielle Flanders' latest, Colorful Card Corners.
I used PTI's Turning a New Leaf in the corners. I also used Simon Says Stamp fairly new Sending and Wishing set for the sentiment and the little hearts.
There are Sweet Blush hearts stamped in the leaves, as well as Raspberry Fizz. The Sweet Blush ones are a bit harder to see.
I did two other cards for this challenge too, will try to get them uploaded for tomorrow.

I haven't had as much crafting time this week, but I did get a card done for the Clean & Simple Sketch.
Here's the sketch:
And here's my card:
I thought the flowers and leaves were like the circles in the sketch. The set is PTI's Morning Glories.
I watercolored on kraft cardstock with Distress Inks, then added the white accents with Wink of Stella brush.

Today I have a card that was inspired by the Sketchbook Saturday post. I'm really enjoying the sketches lately.
And here's my (first) take, using the new PTI Beautiful Brushstrokes.
The sentiment is from Embellished Elegance.

Yet another one using the fabulous sketch from this week's CAS(e) This Sketch.
I used PTI Embellished Elegance on this one. Again! I snuck the word 'birthday' in from Everyday Happiness.
I used Hibiscus Burst, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, and some Fresh Snow.
