Do Beautiful Things ~ PTI Blog Hop

dobeautifulmaureenplut

Hello! Welcome to my July PTI Blog Hop post!  This month we are inspired by this gorgeous collection of vintage fun!  ACK, while just checking out the photo again, I remembered that I was going to use the Button Card stamp!  Oh dang!  My sister asked me to make a card for our oldest sister’s retirement in a couple of weeks and I knew I needed to add a teapot somewhere…that must have been what led me astray!  Anyhow…here’s a list of what inspired me…

As many of you know, the DH and I are new grandparents and loving every minute of it.  This card will be going to our new granddaughter next month with THE MOST GORGEOUS quilt my sister has made for us.  I took inspiration from the quilt which ties in perfectly with the inspiration photo.

My Happy Place ~ Viva La Verve

happyplacemaureenplut

Happy Friday morning, everyone!  I’m the hostess over on the Viva La Verve blog today with a sketch and inspiration photo to get your mojo going!  When I was looking for a photo, I made sure that there was a chalkboard in it somewhere {wink!}.  I found a few I could have easily used, but this one won out with the little Canadian flag in the background!

Happy Happy Birthday

happymaureenplut

Hi everyone!  Well I’m happy to report that I am getting a few things done that I had put off for the summer.  I have a little bit more file sorting to do from school, then it’s tackling the studio for ONE BIG GIGANTIC clean!!  I can’t wait!  Though I am known for my “neat” piles, I am an anal/organized/clean and simple girl at heart.  That is my mission this summer in the studio :)  Until then, I’ll keep it CAS on cards…lol.  Today’s card is for the current Make it Monday challenge over on the PTI blog.  Dawn showed us how to make a rainbow medallion out of pretty much any stamp!  I chose the mega ticket set to create a festive happy happy birthday card.  Well, that’s it for me!  Off to continue the organizing :)  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
