A Pink Valentine for the Hop


January-Blog-Hop

Couldn't miss a PTI blog hop with pink for the theme--that's my favorite color!  I wanted the PTI Hexagon cover plate & stamp set as soon as I saw them, but waited quite a while to send in my order.  Now they've been sitting unused for several months--why do we do that, or is it just me?  Anyway, I was determined to use them & here's the simple card that I came up with--so much fun playing with the hexagons!  My background is made with a watercolor wash of the same pink ink I used for stamping--Distress Ink worn lipstick. The heart is from Heart to Heart #2 & the sentiment is by A Muse. Stickles gives a bit of sparkle to the hearts.  
My weekend to work but I'll catch up with all your projects soon.  Enjoy the hop!

  10. No, it's not just you, Great. That's exactly why I started my NBUS campaign and it has helped me look at my schtuff and pick those things I've purchased and then never used. Good for you for using your NBUS, which BTW has been on my wish list and you've just nudged it closer to the top! This is a really clever design and a sweet card!! Enjoy the weekend! Hugs, Darnell

  11. Whew, glad to hear I'm not alone with my sometimes 'order and ignore' purchases (in fact, I have about 5 things sitting at home, waiting patiently in line for their turn to play; one is a chevron plate die that I've used, ummm, once. Time to bring it out!). Your pretty-in-pink hexagon card is a show-stopper! Subtle pink background, sparkly hearts, the sentiment's special frame...charming!! Perfect for *heart* day!! Hope work goes well!! Hugs~c
