PTI Tree Trimming Trio

Happy Monday, y'all! Hope you had a Happy Halloween. We had a jam-packed weekend and I am still tired despite getting an extra hour of sleep! On Friday night, some neighbors had a block party. The kids had a lot of fun running around and playing with their friends. At 1:00 AM some kids decided to do a Ding-Dong-Dash prank and wake us up! Luckily, it only woke up my hubby and I! Still, we had trouble going back to sleep! We had to get up early on Saturday for soccer games and then Trick-or-Treating of course on Sat night! On Sunday, our immediate neighborhood had a block party and 140 people showed up! The kids had so much fun and fell into bed at 7:00 PM - YAY!

Onto the important stuff! :) I made a few new Christmas cards using PTI's Tree Trimming Trio set.
Yes, I decided to use more non-traditional Christmas colors! These colors reminded me of the cute colored tinsel trees you can buy - so bright!
For the background paper, I used PTI's new Giga Guidelines set - I am in LOVE with this new set! For this card, I used Hibiscus Burst paper, buttons, ribbon and ink as well as Vintage Cream, Kraft and Dark Chocolate. I used some brown thread to add some stitching around all of the edges. The sentiment is from PTI's Signature Christmas set.

For this card, I used some Ocean Tides paper, ribbon and ink as well as some Aqua mist buttons, Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream and Kraft paper. I also used another one of the sentiments from the Signature Christmas set.

These were relatively simple cards to make. I am thinking of using something similar for my Christmas cards - I have to make around 100, so it will be something more simple!

Have a wonderful day! I have to get cleaning - my hubby's new boss will be at our house on Thurs and Friday! My hubby works out of the house and they are going to be going over administrative stuff for his new sales position. Yikes, I want it to be nice and clean! :)

I LOVE the non-traditional colors!!! The sewing is awesome! I'm too lazy. I need to get mine out and leave it out, then maybe I would try it. Miss you guys so much!

LOVE the designs! The sewing adds such a nice touch to your cards... one of these days (in the very near future), I've gotta get my sewing machine out for a sewing demo from you!
