PTI Blog Hop Feb 2016

Today is PTI monthly blog hop!  It was awesome to be able to join.  Life has been busy, there is nothing like a sickness to bring you home and slow you down.  It has been an interesting week, but we have had some creating time.  I liked the pink and green and the big flower in this picture.  
I created two cards.  This was my second, but ended up that we liked it the best.  I loved the sentiment and the way it popped.  This was done by embossing the flower and then using the distress ink to color and blend.  

The was my first card.  It look so much better in real life.  The sentiment is hard to see in this picture, but in real life it is beautiful.  This was done with heat embossing and some water coloring.  Getting the water colors out was a great thing this week with the kiddos.

I can't wait to hop around today.  This evening I have an OIL 101 class to host with young living oils.  I do think that we got over the flu much quicker with the oils.

It's a good life!
Terri E.
