Just Start ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge

juststartmaureenplut

Welcome to the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!!

This week we are inviting you to join us for...

I’ve got graduation on the brain this week so the “travel” theme made me think of “going onto the next adventure.”  I picked some patterned paper with a hint of a map and then some inspirational sayings to stamp around the card.  Head over to the Curtain Call Inspiration blog for more lovely samples and all the details on how to play.  Have a great Sunday!

The Most Fabulous Birthday Wishes…

fabulousbirthdaymaureenplut

…for the most fabulous secretary!  Hi everyone!  I have the honour of making the birthday card for our darling secretary.  Her “big” birthday is next week and the staff will surprise her with this card and a little “something, something” to show her how much we love her :)  I’m participating in the Papertrey Make it Monday challenge that asks us to use vellum to soften a bold background.  I’ve used some more of the PTI printed vellum along with some more Friendly Flower images and dies.  I can’t get enough of that set!  Thanks for stopping by!  I see a weekend closing in!  Woohoo!

Thanks, 2015

cohortmaureenplut

Hi friends!  I finished my second to last semester for my Masters this past weekend!  Just one more course and my capstone paper presentation and I am done this two year journey!  I’ve been making cards for each of our professors, but this one is kind of special.  It was given to our Gonzaga advisor who was also our instructor for 3 courses.  He is an amazing man and helped us every bit of the way for the last 2 years.  I wanted to make a special memento so I used the photo he took of us the first weekend we were together a year and a half ago.  I love the watermark! HA!

Happy Birthday ~ Make it Monday

happybirthdaymaureenplut

Hi friends!  Yikes!  Has it been almost a week of no posts!?  Not to worry, I think I’ve got four posts lined up between now and Monday!  Wow!  I know! LOL  I actually had an hour before dinner tonight to make this card using the PTI Make it Monday challenge.  We are asked to used white die cuts with a pop of colour.  I was trying to use butterflies, but it wasn’t working for me so I switched to my old favourite, the Friendly Flower :)  Oh, the weekend is here!  I’ll be celebrating another semester DONE!  Graduation is right around the corner!  Have a great start to your weekend :)
