PMS blog hop!

>> Monday, September 7, 2009

If you've just happened to come across my blog... you should start back at the beginning of the blog hop. You wouldnt want to miss out on your coupon code, or chance to win $25 bucks, would ya?! :) I didnt think so. If you've just hopped here from Dawn Wheeler's then you are at the right place! :)

I actually have 2 cards to show you! I know *GASP* right? And after this very busy makeup filled weekend, sitting down to make a card (even when at midnight) was a nice change of pace. :)

Here is the first card I've made for your eyes. It uses the color challenge last week from splitcoast to use Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay. I also paired it with the Sketch Challenge 244 from splitcoast because quite frankly, after 2 days of work and not starting my card until midnight... my mojo is pretty much sapped! :) but i was happy with the outcome of my card.

You may remember this sentiment from the friday freebie a few weeks back. Well... it has now been rubberized by popular request (which means it will soon be removed from the digi wordart collection).

Here is my card...


The one thing i really want to point out on this card is the swirlie border along the edges of the sentiment. You know that fun swirl you see on so much of the PMS stuff (in the logo, watermarks for the design team, blinkies, buttons for blogs, etc...) Well that fun swirl has made it's way into rubber! So it is a perfect little something to add to card edges, etc. You can layer it as i did here, or just leave it as it's pretty swirlie self.

Paper is the above mentioned colors along with some razzleberry lemonade patterned paper pack stuff from SU. And the ribbon is bermuda bay dotted ribbon.


My next card for you uses one of the fairies. I used the AHA or Heart Fairy. And i wanted to share the background story of this fairy with you. Diem Pascarella, illustrator for the beautiful day fairies, approached me with the idea of a charity stamp. her cousin recently suffered what they thought might be a heart attack but turned out to be a cardiac arrythmia. Diem wanted to do a fairy holding a heart and said she would love if a portion of this stamp could do to the American Heart Association. And I love a charitable cause, so i told her i would love to do this! So a portion of all Heart Fairies sold from the PMS site, will go directly to the American Heart Association.

Here is my card...


This sentiment is also available in rubber this month.

Now onto my letter for your code.... My letter for you is the letter M. Now hop along to Ms Kim Stewart. I'm sure what she has for you is nothing short of extraordinary!

Dont forget to come to the party tonight at 9pm CST to see all the new releases live in the shop as well as try to win some freebies, play some games AND see some sneaks that havent been shown yet earlier in the week!
