Time for a new challenge at My Time to Craft!  This time it's all about transportation.  Since school is in full-swing around here, I thought a school bus was the likely choice.

This card was made entirely with Close To My Heart® products:

X7159B Scholastic Paper Packet
1388  Colonial White Cardstock
1243  Goldrush Cardstock
B1407 School is Here Stamp Set
Z1701  Baker's Twine - Neutral Assortment
Z1706  Durable Round Studs

Everything is available through my Shop Button at the top of my blog!

Now head over to My TIme To Craft to join in on the fun and to see what the rest of the Design Team has created for you!

All White - Except the Image!

That's the challenge at My Time To Craft!

Don't you just love that shade of blue?  It's called Lagoon and the Baker's Twine is a perfect match.  The stamped image is C1461 Salutation Seals.  You guessed it, it's all from Close To My Heart®.  I just had to add the bling to the center image since everyone could use a little more bling in their lives!  

Be sure to head over to see what the rest of the Design Team has created for you!
  Have a great week!

Never Forget

September 11th

Never Forget...

Mychal's Prayer
Lord, take me where You want me to go;
Let me meet who You want me to meet;
Tell me what You want me to say, and
Keep me out of Your way.

The story behind this prayer can be found here.

Double Hinge Card

The new challenge at My Time To Craft is:  
More Than One Fold

I created this Double Hinge Card:

Two pieces of cardstock were cut:  one 8.75" X 4.25" - scored at 5.5"
                                                    the second, 9' X 3.25" - scored at 4.5"
From there, I sponged some ink on the gingham paper and added it to the card.  I stamped the tree, rolling three colors of ink to make it look like a fall, cut out the tree top and used some 3D tape to give it some pop.  A piece of Baker's Twine was added and a sentiment was stamped inside.
Here are some more views:

If you are just "lovin" that little tree stamp, it is available from Close To My Heart®.   Click the "Shop" button at the top of my blog and get your very own!

Now it's your turn.  Stop over to My Time To Craft and see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  Then, create something of your own and submit it!  We can't wait to see what you create!

Black, White, and Red!

If you are looking for the Wicked Giveaway, please click here.

The real challenge is Black, White, and One Other Color.  I just happened to choose red!
This frame called out to me:
It started out as a plain wooden frame form the craft store.  Add some pretty paper with Mod Podge, make a medallion with some Cranberry cardstock and the new Artiste Cricut Cartridge, and don't forget to add some bling!  Now you have a picture-worthy frame!

Remember, if you still need that Artiste Cartridge, just click the SHOP button at the top of my blog!  

My friends at My Time To Craft have created some other goodies to feast your eyes on, so be sure to stop over for a look.  Then, once you're inspired, create something of your own and link up with us!  We'd LOVE to see what you create!
