One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

PTI Anniversary Day 9 ~ Building Blocks

Oh what fun today at the PTI Anniversary Challenges.  Each team member has six numbered selections for a specific *Building Block* category.  Roll a die or use a random number generator to select which item number you will need to work with from their list.  This is what I rolled:
1.dark chocolate
2. raspberry fizz
3.summer sunrise
4. fine linen
5. Just Because
6.generation stamping
7.adhesive pearls
8.embroidery floss

I used Bigger Blooms and did some generation stamping, which means you stamp once, then stamp again to get a bit lighter shade.  My sentiment was heat embossed on dark chocolate, even though it looks black in the picture!  I think I am going to roll the die again and see what I can come up with!
Thanks for taking a look...I won't be able to participate in tomorrows activities as I am heading to San Francisco with my older daughter and my granddaughter for a big volleyball tournament in San Mateo and San should be fun..we will have a the afternoon to roam around and see some sites! 


  1. Great job Colleen with these difficult colours! Your card turned out beautifully. I would love to play again as well but have run out of time. Good luck!

  2. Just beautiful! You took some pretty hard to combine colors and really made it all work!

  3. This is just so striking! The focal image just pops!

  4. oh my...your use of Bigger Blooms is shear perfection! This is one gorgeous card.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
