Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

 It's time for another PTI Blog Hop, my second one!

I have 3 simple cards to share tonight.  One night, I just felt like "stamping" without the "card-making" part!  I got out Guide Lines 1 and the grid paper, and just started STAMPING in colors that I liked.  Added some Stickles and left them to dry. 

A few days later when I noticed the pretty background paper I created, THEN I was inspired to finish off my cards...couple that with some NEW PTI sets, and I was on a sweet and simple roll....

 I created this one with Heather Nichols's awesome new set, Holiday Tree.  I LURVE that snowman!




These two are with that sweet little Gingerbread man from Holiday Button Bits!  Can't get enough of him, yummy!

Also used my old SU Linen and Aida Cloth backgrounds to add to the country charm.

Thanks for looking, and have fun on the HOP!
