Pinny Party!

You might be wondering something like "What the heck is a 'Pinny Party'?". Well, it's lots of fun, and if you like Pinterest, you should LOVE it!  If you haven't checked out Pinterest yet...what are you waiting for?!?!  Pinterest is full of fun crafty things, recipes, you name it.  But, you need an invite to register, so let me know if you need one and I will hook you up. 

OK.  Back to what a Pinny Party is.  The idea is that you make something of your own using something that you have "pinned" as your inspiration.  You can get more details over at Amber Inklings. 

The repin that I chose today comes via Phyllis Hutter and was originally done by Mel Blackburn.

Gorgeous, right?  This is what you can expect to find on Pinterest!  I love all of the different textures on this card with the embossing and the crimped paper.  So, with this in mind, I set out to make a card of my own.

Let me just say that if this was a speed challenge...I win!   I had a very small window of opportunity to do this yesterday.  Managed to squeeze it in while my lasagna was baking for the Christmas party we were going to last night.  Start to finish, I think I spent about 20 minutes gathering everything and putting this together, which is fantastic!  Using something for inspiration can certainly help you in a pinch when you are in need of getting something done quickly. 

If I had more time, I could dress it up a little more, but I love how clean and simple this is. This would still be easy to mail and without any sentiment on the outside, I can use it for anything:  Thank you, Christmas, Just a Note, etc.

Going to have to get to pinning, so I have some good inspiration for next weekend! 

Have a great weekend,


Pin It
