PTI's 7th Anniversary ~ Day 9 (Building Blocks)

Anyone else wearing down like I am? Between all these fun challenges and watching the Olympics (plus the everyday mundane chores), I am running out of steam. This blog hasn't seen so many posts on a regular basis. How does the Design Team do it so frequently?

Speaking of the Design Team, let's get started with today's challenge here. Each team member has a basic list of six "building block" options that are numbered. Our instructions were to roll a die nine times to see which item numbers we were to use in creating a card. If we didn't have a certain item, we could roll again. I did that for Melissa's fiber selection because I don't have any embroidery floss. Since my PTI inks and cardstocks are limited, I had to make substitutions or I'd still be rolling again and again. Let me just say that I wasn't feeling too lucky when I rolled this combination: 1) Pure Poppy, 4) Sweet Blush, 5) Spring Moss, 3) Stamper's Select White, 6) Dawn's Sketch, 6) Congratulations, 4) Inlaid Diecuts, 6) Felt and 2) Baker's Twine.

A Stamper's Select White card base was covered with a layer of SU Certainly Celery, from which I die cut Boutique Borders: Congrats and inlaid it over a piece of pink & white baker's twine tied in a bow. The border was stamped using VersaMark and "Congrats" using SU Real Red. Tipped Tops Dies were used to cut two-layered stars from SU Pretty in Pink card stock and white glittered felt. Here's my card:

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, SU Certainly Celery and SU Pretty in Pink
Ink: VersaMark and SU Real Red
Stamps: Boutique Borders: Congrats
Dies: Boutique Borders: Congrats and Tipped Tops
Other: White glittered felt (Joann's), Twinery Twine and foam mounting tape

I agree with you, Kathy! And you forgot to add in the horrible and depressing weather issues so many people are dealing with. It's easy to be worn down. I kept up with part of the PTI MANY challenges and then was fortunate to win. Yay! I did one more day after that but I felt like it sort of gave a reason to step out after that. I realize the chances of RIG picking me twice would be a bazillion to one, but imagine how many women would hate me if I did win twice?!! It wasn't worth the chance, lol!!

Your stamina has held out and your cards have been wonderful! Good luck winning - maybe you will be the BIG winner!!

Happy Valentine's Day!! Hugs, Darnell
