Papertrey Peeps Challenge #6--Bling on the Old

First, I have a question for anyone who takes spinning classes. How many days should I expect before my thighs feel normal and I can move without moaning. I have a recumbent bike at home that I ride regularlry,so  I tried my first spinning class on Thursday because I hurt my foot in a Zumba class week. I can't decide which hurts more when I walk. Ok, enough about my painful efforts to mix up my exercise routines.

I have been a poor host; I am late in posting my card for the Papertrey Peeps Challenge I am hosting here For most PTI fans those days or weeks after the 15th of the month are spent anxiously awaiting the arrival of our new orders. Of course it's fun to purchase and play with new stamps, but I think sometimes we need to remind ourselves that we can enjoy creating with our older sets,so my challenge is to use some of our older or less used PTI stamps and add some bling. One set I that I really like for its classic designs but that I haven't used often is Simply Stationery.

 This clean designed thank you card is so quick to make.  I even addied a little detail inside.

Which of your stamps need some lovin'?

P.S. My PTI order arrived this week,and I'll admit it was difficult not to use some of my new stamps on this card.

Stamps: Simply Stationery, sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
Ink: Enchanted Evening(PTI)
Paper: Enchanted Evening(PTI)
Other: Circle Nestabilities, Labels 3(Spellbinders), gems


  1. Wow! More power to you on the exercise routines!! I was always told if you get sore, go back and do what you were doing to get the soreness out. Are you ready for that! :-)
    Your card is simply elegant! I have been good with using my old stuff before ordering new, but PTI is calling my name to order some new!!

  2. Goodness, a spinning class sounds quite ambitious! There was a class in the same room right before a yoga class I was taking and it looked VERY strenuous. No doubt great exercise though! Love your great CAS card--wonderful design!

  3. I have never taken a spinning class. Sorry to hear you are hurting so much from it. I stick with things like Tai Chi and walking. Nice job on your challenge card! I will have something to share tomorrow!

  4. I hear that Spinning classes are torture on the muscles for days after the class! Good for you for braving it LOL!
    Loving your CAS creation! Enchanted Evening always looks so classic and elegant with white.
    Need to get my thinking cap on for which old set to ink and bling many to choose from...*blush*

  5. I have never taken a spinning class, but good for you! Let us know how it goes. And this is such an elegant creation . . . I have had some thoughts in my head for this challenge but I admit I was tempted into using my new stamps this week, I wasn't as disciplined as you are!

  6. I love that set, and don't use it nearly often enough. Your card is terrific! And great job on the exercise routine, too!

  7. Simply gorgeous! love how striking this is!

  8. I love this! It's so strikingly elegant and the bling looks so beautiful on there! Love your use of the label on here also! I hope you are completely pain free again now! Your spinning sounds intriguing though!!


I truly appreciate your comments. Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
