December 2015 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop


Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your family and friends. We had a fabulous day. I have 4 cards to share, I was running very low on hand made Christmas cards so I pulled out the Tinsel and Tags patterned paper from PTI (thought this paper went well with the plates in the inspiration photo), used their Tag Sale #4 die. added a bit of ribbon and twine and there you have it! Quick and easy and 4 cards ready in no time at all...and ready for this month's PTI Blog Hop!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your weekend!





Wanted to share a few photo's from our trip to San Francisco on Christmas Eve...lunch at Lefty O'Doul's with Patrick O'Doul himself! What a wonderful honor to spend the afternoon with Patrick and my sweet family. They even had snow! A dream come true for me.

  33. A quartet of fabulous tags, Kim, which you've transformed into gorgeous cards. Your Christmas Eve photo is wonderful...and snow in San Francisco? How cool is that! We didn't have snow in Edmonton (unusual...), but oh my...cold, cold and cold! We're back home and the weather is downright chilly; -27C! Bring on the long johns!

  36. Yes, why not make four cards when you had the perfect paper pad to use for this design! And four cards ready for next year already. Love this kind of folkloric look.
