Giving some inky love (and getting lovey dovey in general!)

Hey!

Oooh it feels like an age since I was blogging! I'm pleased to see that my scheduled posts worked while I was away (Thanks, Blogger!) 

While I've been away on one of the most memorable holidays ever, a new challenge posted on our A Passion for Papertrey Blog (Have you checked out our new blog/blog makeover - you should y'know *wink*) 

The new challenge asks you to give a little inky love to those stamp sets that require it. Y'know what I'm talking about: those sets you just *had* to have but have hardly inked up since you got your inky mitts on 'em.

For my card I inked up Rosie Posie; a set that has hardly seen any ink at all (it was those hexagons entinced me purchase that set)

Happy Holidays

I used the daisy stamp as the glow of the candle and an outline shape from the set, Modern Basics to create a flame. Although it's only a thin strip of patterned paper, I'm totally patting myself on the back for using some. *wink*

So come and ink along with us! You need only use on PTI product to enter and remember that our challenge are now global! Worldwide entries welcome for the chance to win a $5 PTI GC.

Now before I dash. I mentioned earlier that I've been away on one of the most memorable holidays ever. Normally a hurricane would make a holiday super memorable, but this is the real memory that will last with me:

My guy proposed and I said YES! Hee!
