PTI December Blog Hop: Holiday Inspiration


Our dear friends from MN had us over for Christmas Eve dinner and I chose her gorgeous handmade placemats as my inspiration for Blog Hop. She was helping a friend who was in charge of a Holiday Bazaar, only to learn the placemats she purchased were made by the very friend she was there helping! They're not only gorgeous plaid, but reverse to solid red. Because I've always loved plaids, the Vintage Ornaments Addition's plaid stamp caught my eye. I just love this card's bright traditional holiday colors and I already have a jump on next year's card stash!
Paper: PTI Pure Poppy, Spring Moss & Gold CS
Stamps: PTI Vintage Ornaments, Vintage Ornaments Additions & Everyday Classics
Ink: PTI Spring Moss, Pure Poppy, Landscape
Embellishments: Gold Stickles; Stampendous Star Chain Holograph Gold Stickers
