Make It Monday #58: Graduated Backgrounds

I made this card for a very well deserving candidate, Mr Dan Franklin of the Buffalo Club. He was awarded Manager of the Year for 2011. Had a great time tonight at Oak Hill CC in Rochester NY.  Good food, good friends and lots of great memories.

As for the card I decided to take a shot at the MIM challenge over at Papertrey Ink. We were challenged to make our background with water and refill inkers or copics. Since I don't own any copics I chose the inkers. I did enjoy playing around a bit and was happy with the results.

Supplies: Celebrate Stamp Set and die. Rustic cream CS, Chocolate CS, Bitty Box PP,
Tim Holtz reinkers, star brads and that's about it. 
Hope to be back again soon!!

Papertrey Ink March BLOG HOP

So, here is my tag...
Blog hop inspiration

and this is the inspiration photo.

I needed to make thank you tags for the people that bought Niagara chocolate
from my daughter so I decided to use the inspiration from the Blog Hop.

PTI Supplies: Aqua Mist CS, Hawaiian Shores Ink, Harvest Berries Stamps and dies.
Asian Fusion Sentiment Stamp. 
Other supplies: Vellum, Stampin Up! PP, misc ribbon, Scallop punch and doily.

Have a great day!!!

Fondue in March!!!!

I still can't believe the weather that we have had this month. It has been absolutely beautiful.  I've been spending time outside taking advantage of the sunny days while they last because I know it won't last. We actually had fondue out on our deck on the 19th of March!! Usually at this time of year we are still dealing with the "S" word.  So, my craftiness can wait.

See you real soon.    J
