Earrings & Gift Box

Happy 25th PTI Lovers!

I made a pair of earrings for a friend as a birthday gift. I tried to make the earrings look like they were hanging off of the branch. I thought that would look cute.

Of course, me being me, I waited until the very last minute to do this. I was able to make them and create the gift box all in under 45 minutes. Why do I torture myself like this?! I was in such a rush to get out of the house on time that I had my little girlie hold the gift outside and took a quick picture before we dashed into the car.

I hope to make a few more pairs of these for ME. Isn't it funny how you can create all sorts of things for people but never for yourself? So this weekend I will make myself something special. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

More PTI Swap cards!


In our PTI Swap over on SCS we had the option to do some Clean & Simple (CAS) cards. I chose 2 spots. I love CAS cards but I had a difficult time keeping mine simple without being boring. For the first card I used the Fall to Layout #55. You can see the sketch here. I used to branch and flowers to create my own patterned paper. I had a difficult time deciding on what colors to use. So I tried to keep it simple. :)

Stamps: PTI Floral Fusion
Ink: SU Whisper White & Old Olive
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, SU Old Olive & Certainly Celery
Misc: SU Certainly Celery Twill Ribbon, PTI button, dimensionals

This next card I am not too crazy about. Since I have such a love affair with pink, anything that doesn't have enough just doesn't look right to me. ;) Again this card was a CAS sketch found here.

I have one more set of cards to show you. I'll get those up just as soon as I can. Have a great day!
