PTI January "Create Along With Us" Challenge

Hello crafty friends! Today I am participating in the PaperTrey Ink January challenge. I love an opportunity to play with whatever is in my stash :)

I found some inspiration from Melissa Phillips, one of the PTI Design Team members. She made this adorable tag/bookmark with on upbeat message.

First off, that tag is, like, my favorite die... just about ever. LOVE it, use it all the time. Maybe more than I use the PTI Wine Bottle Tag die. Or the SU Eastern Medallion dies. But not more than the SU Stitched Shapes. OK, I have a lot of favorite dies 😁

I chose to use the same shape, and find another upbeat message. It is kind of a "laugh in the face of life" message. And I love it!! The set id called Book Club. And the leaves and dots are from Embellished Elegance.

This needed to be something I could give to a man. I had actually just read an article about the high rate of suicide in doctors. This is something that I was already aware of. And I see the discouragement with our dysfunctional health care system and lack of support from our society for those who are broken, in our doctors (and nurses-we are definitely in this together) all around me.

I thought of one doctor that I work with in particular who I feel needs some cheering up. And I think he would enjoy this. I know it can't fix anything, but maybe he will have a moment of joy from it.


I used SU Tranquil Tides, Emerald Envy, and Lemon Lime Twist to sponge and blend the background. The images are from Embellished Elegance stamped with the two darkest colors. And the dots are stamped with the Hero Arts Vintage Metallic Rust Ombre ink pad.

I have provided a clickable list of the products I used today, feel free to help support my crafting :)
