Some Easter tags

The hubby's co-worker wanted me to make some Easter taggies for some kiddie baskets she was giving away. Here's two of the eight that I made.

PTI bLoG hOp

Woo, this one was a difficult one for me! That's what I'm soooo late! I had absolutely no mojo!

I used limitless layers to make the lion and since I didn't have any other ideas for eyes, I stitched them in. This was especially difficult, since I have NO..NONE..NADDA skills with a needle and embroidery thread! LOL.

HEC Challenge #15

Okay, this St. Patrick's Card is a little late, I know. It's my entry for Ted's HEC challenge #15.
It's a super simple card, and I didn't have any St. Patrick's sentiments, so I just didn't add one at all! I don't know if that's cheating, but oh well. Can I just say, I love love love this Anya stamp? She's so fun to color!

Papertrey Paper Dolls Blog Hop

Welcome to the Papertrey Paper Dolls first Blog Hop! Woo HOO! Since we are all OBSESSED with PTI products, the challenge was to use items that begin with P-T-I. What an interesting and brain busting challenge!

Before I get to my take on the card, we were asked share a little bit about ourselves. So, without delving into the realm of identity theft, here’s a little bit about me. I’m from Hawaii and lived here most of my life (was born in WA and went to college in CO!). By day, I’m an 8th grade English teacher, and there is NO JOB I’d rather do than that. Well, except maybe a makeup artist. =) I’m currently on “house arrest” because of a high risk pregnancy. It gets a little boring being at home all day alone, but I try to keep in mind that it’s for the best of reasons!

As for PTI…I’ve only been hooked for about a year. And I blame DEENA. She and I teach together and we live about 5 minutes apart, and it’s all her fault that I got into PTI. It all started with the cardstock. Once you go PTI…it’s so thick and the colors are so yummy. If I had to pick ONE fave color, it would have to be RazzFizz, but Hibiscus Burst is a close second.

Anyhoo, on to the card. Don’t forget to check out the other DOLLS and leave comments for your chance to win some FABU prizes!
