Challenge - Take Your Pick!!

Hello one and all and welcome to a spanking (yes, I have been reading FSOG) new challenge here at A Passion For Papertrey.  This time we're asking you to Take Your Pick from the many (or few) PTI supplies you have and come up with something fabulous!!  It doesn't just have to be a card - as long as you've got some PTI lovliness in there somewhere we'll be happy!!

This year I was able to make great use of my alphabet dies when making my Thank You Teacher cards. I have realised though that I really do need to order the upper case set too!!!  The Fruit Fusion: Apple set also comes in very useful for these cards too!

Thank you {teacher}
Card Recipe:
Stamps: Fruit Fusion : Apple, Say It With Style.
Cardstock: Stampers select: White, Raspberry Fizz, 
Ink: Spring Moss, Raspberry Fizz
Dies: Block alphabet, fruit fusion apple, framed out1

Over to Kate: "It's been a while since I had to make a baby card but some dear friends of mine recently welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world so I grabbed my Bitty Baby Blessings - can you believe I bought this when it was released in 2008!! Where does the time go?!!"

Card details:
Stamps: Bitty Baby Blessings/Think Big Favorites 5
Card: Stamper's Select White/Spring Rain
Ink: Memento Black
Other: blue gingham ribbon/Copic sketch markers

Over to Aimes: "I've been playing around with my embossing powder and heat gun to come up with a simple thank you card for my stash:

Card Deets
Stamps: Peaceful Garden (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Versamark
Cardstock: Royal Velvet, Fine Linen (Papertrey Ink)
Accessories: Gold Detail Embossing Powder (Stampendous)/Vintage Cream Satin Ribbon (Papertrey Ink)

Isn't it apt that I've used gold embossing powder when you think of how well Team GB are doing in the Olympics! *wink* 

The prize this time is this cute little punny sentiment set: Lighten Up Sentiments

Here are all the details you'll need to know about entering:

 * Enter as any times as you wish! All entries must contain at least one PTI product to qualify and can cater for as many different challenges as you please! (please state what is PTI as sometimes it's hard for us to see...)

 * All entries must be newly created (well, new to Blogland anyways!). Please don't link to old posts that might happen to fit the brief of the challenge!! Please leave a link back to this challenge on your entry too :)
 * To enter, use our inlinkz thingy at the bottom of this post. Please leave the correct URL for your entry post and not just your generic blog address! If you're having problems then just leave a comment with a link to your post featuring the project on your blog or online gallery.

 * Worldwide entries are more than welcome to share the inspiration and can be in with a chance of being a Top 3 PTI Passionista, but unfortunately prizes can only be shipped within Europe! 
* Challenge closes on Monday, August 20th 2012 at 9.00am BST
 * As well as a randomly picked winner, we'll select the top three creations we like the most and feature them on the Blog. The top three PTI Passionistas will have chance to display a Top 3 Passionista Blinkie on their own blog.!
