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 Day 5 ~ Spring into Action Challenge

Are you all having fun with these anniversary challenges at Papertrey?  I am loving all of them!
Today's challenge is to use a NBUS or at least one that has not seen much love lately!
Just so happens the freebie from December, Pretty Petals was sitting on my desk, Never Before Used!
I am still loving Maile's style, so went with one of her designs.
The stripes on the sides was made with an Obsession Impression striped full card stamp.
I am NOT very good at lining up stripes, so I went with this stamp instead.
The sentiment is another one that I have not used before, it is from the Mat Stack collection.
I colored in the petals of the flowers with V12 and the leaves with YG05.
Melon berry, terra cotta tile and spring moss were the inks used.
Have a great week everyone!
I am heading to Santa Clara on Friday with my daughter Dina and granddaughter Ellie for a volleyball tournament that will last the holiday weekend.  She will be playing in the Santa Clara convention center.


  1. This is lovely Colleen. Love the sentiment treatment.

  2. WOW...this is gorgeous Colleen! Loving the stripes on the sides and your angled did Maile proud! :0) Have fun this weekend at the volleyball tournament with your daughter and granddaughter. I'm excited for when Addy will be involved in things that I can go watch, but for now I'll just enjoy her toothless wet, sloppy kisses and grins! :0)

  3. Hi Colleen! I was playing with this very stamp set this morning and didn't have half the creativey with it as you did. Oh my gosh this is beautiful!
    Have fun with the girls, I sure miss all the weekend volleyball tournaments we used to go to. Enjoy!

  4. Colleen this is just gorgeous! I have yet to ink up this stamp set too. Didn't think of that one! Have fun on your trip!


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