Eeek! My first post on the PTI Blog – how daunting! Seeing as I’m the new gal around here I hope you’ll be gentle with me!
Firstly can I just thank everyone for being so welcoming towards me here on the PTI blog – I feel truly blessed to not only have the opportunity to be contributing here, but to be part of such a supportive community – big hugs to you all!!
Well seeing as I’m the kinda gal that throws herself into the deep end, I thought I would do the same with my first official post on here. So cue this post not only being a card, but a card that fits the current Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15 as well as being a part of this month’s PTI Blog Hop too!
I’ve never taken part in a Blog Hop before but I actually had time this month due to the long (and nearly ending!) summer holidays. I did consider participating in the blog hop on my own lil’ blog but seeing as I’m hoping a lot of PTI addicts will stop by, this site seems much more suited to it!
Now if you’re new to the idea of a blog hop – it’s just as the name suggests, no need to be literally hopping LOL! You just hop from blog to blog to see people’s creations based on a set challenge.
The PTI Blog Hop challenge this month was to create something inspired by autumn (or fall to you on the other side of the pond!). The current RSCC really screamed out autumn to me (well maybe not the pink so much as the other colours!) so I decided to multi-task and combine this with my blog hop entry too, here are this week’s colours:
And finally – here’s my creation!I hope you like it! I wanted it to represent autumnal leaves blowing through the wind. As a kid I used to (and still do!) love it when loadsa leaves are blowing towards you and you try to dodge ’em – ah the best things in life are free!
I double stamped a couple of my leaves to add more depth to the orange leaves (it’s all about the Melon Berry, Baby!)This card sums up why I ADORE PTI, the stamp sets are SO versatile that you can create nearly anything when you combine them. With PTI, the world really is your oyster – your imagination is the only limit!
Well that’s all from me now – how did I do on my first post?!
Thanks so much for hopping by – now I’m off to do a spot of hopping myself!
