February PTI Blog Hop


Happy Saturday!!  How excited was I yesterday, when I got home, and had a new box of goodies waiting for me?  I SWORE I was taking a break from spending -- and then the PTI Anniversary happened!  HA!

The Movers and Shakers dies must be my absolute FAVORITES yet!  This month's blog hop theme was to create an interactive card.  And those of you that know me, will not be surprised to know that I needed a....you guessed it, BIRTHDAY card for my nephew.  (I have a very large family, with about 20 nieces and nephews - we're ALWAYS going to a birthday ;0) )  Anyway, onto the card.

(I apologize for the pictures, it was very late, and very very dark when I finished!)

Here's the front view:
I utilized lots of fun things here - Mat Stack #3 die, Limitless Layers 1.75" circle dies, the sliders Movers and Shakers Dies and stamp set, the alphabet dies, Dot Spot, and Way to go Kiddo (the lines on the Mat Stack #3 die cut)

Here we are, partially open, to reveal the sentiment from Movers and Shakers:
Too adorable.  I love the sentiments in this set, as well as the Simply You set.  Just darling.  I've added some stars from Star Prints on the tab that slides out, as well as the layer I added behind it.

Here's the tab all the way out - to reveal something about the birthday boy:
And there you have it!  My handsome little nephew will be receiving this today - We are so blessed to have a wonderful big family, and I love them all so much.  Can't wait to CELEBRATE! :)

Thanks for dropping by, have a GREAT weekend!
