pti ninth anniversary

Because I am playing beat the clock, just pictures of the cards will be shared for now. During the week, I’ll try to return with some information about each card. Please know that if I’ve shared two cards for a challenge, I’ve only entered one. It just means that I was having fun with a challenge and kept creating. Also, as I mentioned in my Create Along with Us post, it has been five months since I’ve made a card. Because I’m out of practice, I’ve CASE’d a few of my cards, trying to make them with the supplies I own.

Grab & Craft:  I used every second of the five minutes for grabbing supplies. They included watercolor paper, cardstock, watercolors, Fancy Flakes dies, Two Feet Deep and Winter Hills stamps, and ink.

Color Pop Fortune Teller:  Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet and Royal Velvet

Paper Crafting Alphabet:  new product, border, at least five colors, and incorporate yellow

My computer is old in technology years and leads to some challenges because of no longer being able to update its browser. One of those challenges is not being able to comment on some blogspot blogs; it is dependent on how the comments are set up. Please accept my apologies if yours is one of the blogs. I was that person who commented on every blog for each challenge or blog hop in which I was a participant, so this really bothers me. Thank you for visiting.

I last made a card in September, five months ago. When I was at my computer, looking at wonderful, lovely, colorful cards, I wanted to make something, but by the time I got to my supplies, the desire to create would disappear. Papertrey Ink’s anniversary challenges flipped the switch for me and I’ve made 13 cards since Thursday. I’m a very slow card maker, so that productivity is close to miraculous. My anniversary challenge cards are in the next post. My PTI Create Along With Us challenge card follows.

My inspiration is Betsy’s wonderful, merciful Savior card. Since I kept going back to Betsy’s blog to stare at that card, I thought it would be the perfect choice for this challenge. Basically, I copied Betsy’s card as best as I was able using Beautiful Brushstrokes, One Liners: Happy and my novice watercoloring skills.

Thank you for stopping by during this very busy time.
