PTI Blog Hop


This is my second blog hop, and I have to admit, it's a lot of fun! This month's theme was buttons, which I love!

Luckily, my PTI goodies came with enough time for me to play. Hawaiian Shores felt is scrumptious, and I loved using it with the scallop die. Fun! I also tried a window with Fillable Frames 2. I used Hawaiian Shores and the ever popular Raspberry Fizz...and I couldn't make a card without Butterfly Dreams, which has been my go-to set since it was released.
Here's my second card, which uses Delightful Dahlias which I colored with my RV17 and RV19 Copics. I also used my rick rack die to hide the border of Polka Dot Basics II. I love these colors together!
Here's the inside of the card, where I got to use my Hawaiian Shores ink.
