PTI Make It Monday


Hello!

It's so nice to be back with you today ... With all that's been going on here I've missed the quiet life of blogging ...
I'm hoping for some good news soon regarding my DH ... He has had his MRI scan (no results yet but fingers crossed for a good result) and he also needs to see an ear specialist as he is being treated for Labyrinthitis... Since a child he has been completely deaf in one ear and the other ear has deteriorated badly ... It makes life difficult for both of us ...  But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he can come home soon ...

Thank you all for your support, your prayers and kind words ... I can't begin to tell you how much it means to both of us ...

It's been difficult getting back into creating and this week's Make it Monday at PTI by Betsy Veldman was just what I needed to get going ...
It's a technique that I've wanted to try since I saw it up on the Jugs challenge a week or so ago ... I just didn't get the chance till today
The technique is Inlaid Die Cuts ... hop over to PTI and check it out ... 
I think this may be my first Make It Monday entry ever!


I used the clouds die, the Butterfly die and the 'hello' die - all from PTI 

The clouds and Butterfly were stamped using the Bitty Blocks background  from PTI



The 'hello' was cut from a piece of PTI paper from the Everyday Blessing pad ... It's an old set and I've been holding on to every scrap of this!


Before assembling I stamped some images from the Life stamp set using Classic Kraft and Ocean Tides ink ... 
I really love this technique and it feels good to have created something today ...
It's very dull here so I apologies if my photos aren't the best ... 

Thanks so much for stopping by ...

Hugs to you all

It's funny how some cards just speak to us, this one did and the great part is I already have all of the ingredients.
