PTI February 2015 Blog Hop

The Challenge:



Here's the inspiration photo


I am using PTI Quatrefoil cover plate die....


the color of the background are mixture of a few PTI ink pad


last step is to die cut the word HUGS and added the HEART, both are PTI dies



..............................

The weather has been crazy the last 2 days, the week when my guests were here, we have 70s and low 80s everyday, we sat by our fountain by the backyard every morning, out of a sudden, the weather changes, I look out the window Monday morning.....


all I see is snow caps on the mountain....


which is rare, these mountain are too low and hardly have snow on top


Guess I can't complain about weather in the 50s in the winter right? We are just spoil here in Las Vegas : 0

Kirsty, I love your card! I love it! It makes me happy just to be visiting your blog. It's been way too long! I've been watching up on your posts, and as always your photography is astounding and your crafty endeavors fabulous! I especially love your snowy mountains in this post. I lived in Las Vegas about 7 years growing up, and I'm pretty sure I can still remember each time it snowed because it was so rare. My teacher even gave us an extra recess in 4th grade on the day it snowed, so all of us could go out an enjoy it. :) My visit to your blog this morning has been delightful...thank you!

Wow! LOVE the bold and graphic look to your card design, Kirsty! The quatrefoil plate cut in black is soooo eye catching! Love it paired with the soft dreamy watercolor background and the big bold sentiment, too!
I think your mountain tops looks so pretty with their dusting of snow. Must be fun to see since it is so rare!
