PTI November Blog Hop ~ Love & Laughter!


Welcome to My Paper Tales! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. My hubby and I hosted for 15 this year. Lots of eating, lots of laughing, lots of love. I wouldn't trade our family for anything in the world!!!

But now lets get down to business with the reason for today's post!!! I have a sweet little card to share for the Papertrey Ink November blog hop. We were given this lovely photo for our inspiration this month. Isn't this so pretty and festive!!!



I stamped pine boughs from the Love Lives Here:Holiday set along both sides of a white cardstock card base. Next I added the pretty gingham panel stamping my sentiment from the same set along the top. A paper doily and two die cuts from the Limitless Layers die set was then layered on top of the doily. I stamped the circle layer with more of the pine and a few of the dots from the same holiday set along with the stack of presents from the Train Tracks set.  A bow (ribbon from Hobby Lobby) with scatterd punched pine sprigs and glittered snowflakes (both punches Martha Stewart) decorates the top of the doily. I added the sweetest tiny pair of skates (stamp from DeNami) with glittered blades and another sparkly snowflake to balance out my design.

Now I'm off to visit the other fabulous blogs who have entries to share. Thanks for taking the time to visit today! I hope you'll stop back soon ~Lisa

Oh my word, I just love it, Lisa! That beautiful gingham pattern and all the pine brances with that gorgeous doily and fabulous ribbon!! So many beautiful elements - to me it looks cottage-y country, and I love it. Beautifully done. ;-) You are getting under my skin with this Love Lives Here stuff! I really, really need to break out that set and play around with it. Great job on this challenge, Lisa. WONDERFUL interpretation. ;-)
