Hugs

Lots of us playing along in the PTI challenges with such great prizes!  Wasn't sure I was going to make it today. Had to watch the Westminster Dog Show & finish yesterday's Olympics tapes.  Just sat at my table playing for a bit & finally came up with this card.  I used one of the sketch & color inspirations as well as today's challenge to make a large word the focal point.  
Color-7Sketch-5
I used Summer Sunrise, Rhubarb Stalk, Turqoise Gem & Picked Raspberry inks with PTI stamps from Lovely Layers & Snowflake Flurries.  I have very few word dies so I used stickers.  The doily has been in my stash forever, the twine is DeNami & the button was part of the prize I won from my 
good friend Lisa.  
I would never have put these colors together, but they did make a cheery, fun card that will work for my goal of sending cards "just because" this year.  I'll catch up on blogs tomorrow.  I so appreciate your comments.
Edited to add: Entering SSS Monday.

    It's been so much fun to play along with the PTI-Challenges, but I can't keep up.

  19. You're on a roll with these PTI challenges, and what a delight this one is! Fresh, colourful, and Hugs certainly has center stage, as well it deserves! Fabulous! And speaking of sending out 'just because' cards - good gosh, but I'm failing miserably in my intention to do that! Gahhh...the Valentine-athon consumed more time than I reckoned! Perhaps I'll re-jig my "resolution" to March 1...I'll surprise you with something one of these days. Yeessh, but I'm the queen of dither and disorganized! At least the Valentines arrived at my SIL's...Hugs~c
