Pedal Pushers is one of those stamp set that's good for many occasions but I use it most

2012 Challenge Past, Present and Future
I used the Don't Forget to Write floral to kind of match the background paper. The Sentiment Signs have been used for so many occasions - it says it all. Also the Basic Bookmark #3 was a perfect background.

Garden Variety has always come in handy for the Spring time and I'm ready for that.  I used a small pocket to hold an enclosure card. I have used that grass many times in other cards creating a scene.

2009 Challenge was lots of fun as I loved the ON the Couch set.  I have usually used this card as a Welcome to you new Home card but Get Well works too. It's fun choosing fabric (paper) for the couch and pillows.

Today's challenge was from 2008 which is when I first discovered PTI and then my life changed. Oh how I loved their stamps as they were fresh and clean and some even had dies with them. I chose the Bitty Baby Blessings and it is still as cute today as it was then.

The PTI Challenge was to be inspired with one of  the 2007 designs. I chose Kim's card.


I used the Mat Stack 3 and Layerz but used the recent Gathered Garden flowers.. I stenciled the front with a scalloped stencil.

PTI has challenged us to pick one card we are proud of from Past stamp sets. Well that is a chore as I just love all of their stamps and have created right along with them for the past 8 years... I chose this one because I loved the extra  trinkets as it was fun picking them out and it was nostalgic. It's called "Hanging by a Thread"

Make it Monday Stamped Dangles:
Amy showed some really cute dangles so I went through my stash and found the above. I used Friends from Wonderful Words Friends and the forever was from Taylored Expressions Pockets and Pages. I drew dash lines around the outside using  my Prismacolor pens. It was fun hunting down the dangles too.
