Papertrey Ink festivities...

Hello bloggers,


you might have noticed that I am a bit of a PTI nut *lol*


Well, they are celebrating their 4th anniversary and there are some contests, and those prizes are just to die for!!! Anyway, I thought I'd join in the fun and hope I might be picked for a prize. Wouldn't that be just fabulous?
Anyway, here goes...
Make it Monday cards, requiring the use of several sentiments from different sets to make a card, I made these two:






My pictures still don't come up too great but it'll have to do as both my kids are home ill and I simply don't have the time for long set ups etc.


Update: I have retaken the pictures and they look a bit better now...


Today there is also a challenge to use buttons in a "new" way. Well, it's not that new what I did but it is for me, as I never did it before. 






The colours on this look wrong on the pic, they are Ripe Avocado and Melon Berry in real life, but light/camera are not playing nicely...


Update: I have retaken this picture as well and it is a bit better but the ribbon still looks like two different colours?


Hope you like?
