PTI January Blog Hop!






Here are the details for this month's PTI Bloghop:

This month, in honor of the new year, we are challenging you to pick your
favorite project from 2011 and share it with al of us! To take it a step
further, you are also challenged to create a second card that is inspired by
the favorite project you select. Your new version of an old favorite could
carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets. We look forward
to seeing your best creations from 2011 as well as one of your first projects
for 2012!


I used paper piecing so I could enter it for Paper Sundae's Paper Piecing Challenge and at Simon Says Stamp it is "Anything goes".
I used the stamp set Tiny Treats Christmas.

Have a great day and a great hop , hugs, Karin

I would not have thought you could improve on the 2011 project, but the new 2012 edition is just as eye catching! I am in love with the little balloon mounted on the small square shape. I foresee UP, Up, and Away on my desk soon!
