MIM ~ Repeating the Greeting

Don't you think a 97 degree day is perfect for staying in the studio?
This card is for the new MIM over at the Papertrey blog, you can go HERE to see the video by Lizzie about repeating your greeting or sentiment.
And this is what I used to make this card (ALL PTI stamps and dies):
Farmers Market Florals
Mix & Mat Pink Edge die
Basics Dots Stencil
Soft Stone Pattern Paper
Botanical Blocks III (sentiment) 
PPP Marshmallow Confetti
CPD inks
HA Unicorn White ink
PTI Soft Stone Ink
Versafine Black
Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. Oh wow--your card is absolutely perfect, Colleen! Worth having a 97 degree day--almost--haha! I love your color scheme & having the flowers in opposite corners!

  2. This is so pretty with those soft colors and beautiful flowers. You have really had extreme heat and it is perfect to craft in.

  3. Oh Colleen, this is BEAUTIFUL!! LOVE your color peaceful and just really, really lovely!! And so many pretty layers too...LOVE it!! And a perfect way to spend your time when it's 97 degrees out!! Take care and stay cool!! Hugs!! :0)

  4. Sounds like a perfect day to stay in your craft room. lol Your card is gorgeous! Love the pink and gray and your flowers are so lovely. Your repeating sentiment is perfect. I haven't been in my craft room very much lately. We have Larry's 91 year old uncle staying with us for a while. Heart hugs, my friend!

  5. Oh, super lovely! Love the repeating sentiment and gorgeous flowers in pink! Hope it cools down soon for ya! It was a hot day here, but not 97...whew!

  6. I love how your sentiment fades out like a whispered prayer! Such a beautiful card, Colleen!

  7. 97! I think we escaped at the right time! The repeating sentiment is soft and subtle and I love that about it! Gorgeous card!

  8. This is so pretty Colleen!! Love your colours and design. Yes, 97 degrees is a good day to stay in the cool studio! :) I'm doing the same, although 90 degrees here and I'm not even stepping outside! xx

  9. Wow, Col, this is a great take on a fun new way to do a sediment treatment that adds interest without detracting from the overall beautiful design! The heat everywhere is just ridiculous! Thank goodness for air conditioning!! Hugs, Darnell

  10. Love this, Colleen. Beautiful! And if you think 97 is bad try 100+ for 22 Days! What did they do before air conditioning?

  11. Hooray, Colleen! Happy shopping, my friend!

  12. I popped in to say how lovely you card is, and I'm so happy that you were a winner. Congats!
