Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop


Once again, I'm playing along with the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
I actually figured it out and this is my 50th PTI Blog Hop!
I started in April 2011 and have played along every month since. :)

This month's challenge is an inspiration photo:


Isn't it fabulous?
Here's my card:


I decided to stamp the little birds from the MIM Wee One Mini kit
in the same colours and shape as the blocks in the photo.
I stamped my sentiment (from Graceful Greetings)
and fussy cut it out by hand for the Make It Monday #212: Fussy Cutting Tips.
I adhered it with some foam tape, over some white thread.
I thought the thread really added to the motion of the birds!


Before you go, I just want to let you know that I'm up on the Bazzill Basics Blog again today.
But this time, instead of featuring a project, I'm doing a tour of my craft space!
