Wedded Bliss

Where did Spring go?!?!?! I woke up this morning to find 2inches of friggin snow on the ground!! Not a good way to start a Monday :0( But I have Spring on my mind and Spring in my heart. AND . . . over at the Cardmakin Mamas blog they are hosting a challenge to make a Spring card. PMS is sponsoring this challenge and the winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to the PMS store!!

Isn't this a cutie?! I decided to make a Springy wedding card with these two little love birds from the PMS Tweet Things set. I love the little heart shaped wings and leaves on the branches. I figure this could easily be a wedding, anniversary, or Valentine card - LOVE the versatility. The flowers on the background are from the PMS Springtime Solids set - love it!! and the wording is from and oldie but goodie - Fench Script from SU!

Play along with the challenge and then head on over to PMS and see what you could be shopping for! There is a huge inventory reduction sale going on right now so you might be able to stretch that gift certificate even a little further!!

Happy Monday!!

Paper Makeup Stamps Springtime Blog Hop

Happy Spring!!

The flowers are bloming, the birds are singing, and PMS is hopping!!
We're showing off some of our springy things as we anticipate next months release.

I have something a little crafty to show you that I made awhile ago for a friend but never posted :0) This was a blank wooden birdhouse that I decorated "PMS Style"!!

I painted the birdhouse black and then for a shine painted modgepodge over that. I stamped PMS images and sentiment on some sheet music patterned paper, distressed it with Ranger ink and then pasted it onto the birdhouse. I removed the little wooden peg perch and added a small black iron drawer knob for a little flair, and a coordinating metal embellishment at the top for a little pizzaz. Finally, I screwed in a little hanger at the top and adde some pretty ribbon and twine for hanging :0)

If you've been hopping then you know that PMS is having a huge sale right now, so be sure to hop hop hop and shop shop shop!! One lucky commenter on the blog will win the entire May release!! And ooh is it a good one!!

Happy hoping on your way to Jami's blog
