October PTI Blog Hop

First the first time in years I had time to participate in the monthly blog hop for PTI!  I made a Christmas card for my daughter to give to one of her friends.

I used this color combination from the challenge:
And I used this sketch from back in April 2014 (Inspiration cards):
This is my card using Winter Penguin & Wonderful Words: Snow:

Time After Time SAF 2014

For the last challenge we were to find one of our 1st cards and then "remake" it with our current style.  I have been scrapbooking since about Junior High.  However, I wasn't introduced to stamping until around the birth of my DD and she turns 8 yo this fall.  I believe that within the first year to 18months I tried my hand at card making.  I started this blog in May 2008 and these are the first cards I posted.  The only way I had to get it online was to scan it.
Extremely cringe worthy!

This is my remake.  

I do believe I have improved and changed my style :).  I am sure we ALL have, right?

Retro Rainbows SAF 2014

Since knowing the details of SAF, I have looked forward to the 80's challenge more than any other.  A special treat within each challenge has been music specifically within that time period.  I have *LOVED* the music chosen for this time period!  Also, we originally were told to pull out any 80's stickers if we had them.  Well I did purge (a big one) about 3 years ago when setting up my craft room.  However, those orange stripes... HELLO 1980's stickers!!!  :)


Stencil Layers SAF 2014

So I love 60's music but I'm not sure about my 60's card.  


Card Corsage SAF 2014

This was super cute.  My 7 yo DD has already claimed it for her room.  I made the corsage "sit" in a green vase because I thought it looked prettier (and I didn't have a pin back).



Rhinestone Designs SAF 2014

I really enjoyed this one but I have no idea who I could give this card  to in my life.  I'll need to pay attention to some friends and decide who would really LOVE to get a "blingy" card :).  
The papers, the stamps, the techniques in this one I really loved.  I think besides the 80's I was looking forward to the 20's the most.  (And I've loved the music too!).
