PTI Christmas Card

I'm home & trying to get back into the swing of things. Had a great time in Indianapolis visiting my cousin & his family. Dave's wife gave me her ticket so I could go to the Colts game. Would have been better to win, but had fun anyway.  Weather wasn't bad, but too much humidity for my liking the first few days. They had lots of fun activities planned & I didn't let a cold slow me down. Another highlight of the trip was meeting my blogging friend, Brenda.  
It really felt like we'd known each other for years.  We enjoyed a LONG lunch just chatting away.  Good thing the place wasn't busy!  I wasn't able to meet up with my other Indy friends, so guess I'll just have to go back--haha!

CARD BY DAWN MCVEY
It will be awhile before I catch up with all of you as we have unexpected company coming & I'm working the weekend.  It's been way over a month, so I'm a bit nervous. Did manage to make a card last night for the PTI Create Along With Us challenge.  Dawn's card made me think of Snowflake Flurries, one of my favorite sets.  
I used her color combo of Raspberry Fizz & red--my ink is Memento Love Letter.  The sentiment is from PTI Peaceful Poinsettia & the die cuts are from Twig Wreath.  I brushed them with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens & the black dot is Pico Embellisher. Nuvo drops are used in the background & the sentiment panel is die cut with AJVD Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop. Thanks for your visits while I was gone & for your patience as I catch up.  I'm also entering ATSM, CropStop, Penny Black & More & Word Art Wednesday.

  4. Great picture of you in your Colts shirt at Lucas Oil. Yes, I think you should come back to see the other gals that couldn't make it! This card is so bright and cheerful and I love the colors. I really love the sentiment, especially the happy memories. It's a wonderful time to reflect on the memories of past times with the family.

  24. Hi Greta, I'm glad to hear you had a great trip and it must have been very special meeting up with your friend. I met a pen friend on a trip to the USA some years ago now. We'd been writing for about 10 years so like you I felt I knew hew and had no doubt we'd get on. Isn't it lovely though to be able to have a real hug. Lovely photos and a very pretty card. It will be lovely to see your lovely cards again soon. Barbxx
