PTI - January Hop and CASology #70 - Contrast


Blog-hop-logo
Happy Saturday...wishing everyone a wonderful weekend! I don't have anything planned other than hanging out at home being crafty and dolly domestic.  I have 3 cards to share today and all of them are for this months Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and one is for this weeks CASology challenge. I was late to the party last week and I want to be sure that does not happen again.  PTI blog hop theme is Pretty in Pink...I just love pink and had so much fun playing along.  



January-Blog-Hop

This is my card for CASology...the cue card this week is contrast and I was stumped for a bit. I made the card above it for the PTI Blog Hop, I love the look but it is very busy so to make a card for CASology in contrast to that card, still pretty and the hearts are the focal point, but a much cleaner look.  I used a new die from SSS, Heart Parade. Such a fun die and I want send a thank you to whoever was so sweet to have it sent to me, it was a wonderful surprise!



Thank you so much for taking time to stop by and peek at my cards...have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Your love for pink shines through in your cards, Kim. They're each a wonderful representation of the color. I'm most drawn to the last one. I think it's because of that delicate chain of hearts. Enjoy your low keyed weekend that you have planned. Sounds perfect.

  7. These are all fantastic cards. Talk about pretty in pink! I love that you, Tracey and I are on the same page with our hearts cover plate die. How funny is that. Your CASology card is gorgeous and totally CAS. Loving that die even more now that I see how you used it. Thank you so much for making it in before the deadline this week at CASology.
