What great colors Megan has given us for our Anniversary week.

Please leave a comment as to why you love the PPC Challenge Blog.

Now I used the sketch over at Inspirational Card Sketches. After I finished I realized I forgot some things sorry girls. Stampin Royalty challenge is to marker it up. 2 Sister Challenge blog is to use embossing ( I chose to dry emboss).

Here is my card. I hope you like it. I used the Thoughts and Prayers stamp set, along with the Teeny Tiny wishes both from SU. I colored them with my markers and this allowed me to use the huffing technique. The embossing folder is also from SU (sorry I don't know the name).

The last ten months have just been amazing! I have enjoyed working with such wonderful ladies and want to really THANK Megan for such a great opporunity. Each week our team comes up with amazing creations and we all love sharing them with you. I am loving being a DT and look forward to meeting and working with two more wonderful crafters.

Now you might have stopped bye to see what I am offering for a gift. I am still offering up a prize it just has to be added to my post when I get back home. When this posts, I will be in Fort McMurray 6 hours from home and I forgot to get a picture of my prize. Please comment and be assured the prize will be on my blog by Tuesday.

The next two weeks are going to be so exciting and I just can't wait to share them with you. Please stop bye PPC and share in our anniversary with us. We would love to see what you have got for us. Thanks too all of our followers who have made our year so special. You all rock and we really appreciate all of your support.

Thanks for stopping in and joining in our celebration.


  1. Oh neat sketch, I used that one too awhile back. Sure do like these colors, very nicely done on your card. Simple but very awesome. That flower stamp sure stands out. Way to go on the 1 year anniversary. Happy Craftn'!

  2. Stunning card, simple but gorgeous! Thank you for playing with us at ICS!

  3. Once again I bow to the embossing Queen! I love the different background colors. I'll confess I was so late in creating something for this challenge that I went & looked at the other DT's posts before I made mine just to make sure it was as different as I could make it! so embarrassing to be running that late :-0

  4. I love the dratic graphic contrast in your design!!!

  5. Oooh I love a good sketch, and your image is lovely, almost oriental, really pretty flowers. I love the embossing folders you've used too. I must admit that I prefer dry embossing when there is an embossing challenge. Although I've got the Versamark pads and powders, it is just such a chore to get it all out, and embossing folders give a lovely depth to a card. A really lovely elegant creation. Thanks for joining in with our embossing challenge at 2 Sisters this week. Hope to see you again next week. Annette xx

  6. WOW I love what you did with the sketch from ICS last week. I think its perfect as is. Thanks for joining us.

  7. Tamie, what a gorgeous card!!!! Hey, I have that set...thanks for reminding me of that fact!!! Yes, I am soooooo excited about the DT call!! I have my card my mind!!!!! LOL!! Will get to work on it tomorrow!


  8. Hey girl! Way to rock both challenges!! Love the pearls on the flowers!! And your blog candy looks great! Keep up the great work and enjoy your weekend!

  9. Enjoying the PPC blog hop because each designer showcases different stamps and sketches plus adds their personal touch with embellishments. And it doesn't take forever to get through the hop! Love the Thought & Prayers stamp set. Think the embossing folder is called Finial Press. Thanks for your great prize offer.
