Bugs and Insects!

Yes, that includes butterflies, too!  
Welcome back!  The weather here is COLD - below zero today - BRRRR!!!  That's why I love this card so much:
It reminds me that Spring is coming - and it was perfect for a friend who recently had a birthday.  I really like how the white core of the cardstock shows through from the embossing.

Stay warm everyone!

A Winter Scene

It's been a chilly week with a little snow and ice.  Personally, I'll take the snow over the ice anyday!  My poor hubby spent hours salting and chopping the ice off the driveway and sidewalk this week - no fun!  

In honor of the weather and My Time To Craft's Challenge this week, I created this card:
The challenge is 2 or More People.

This image reminds me of sleigh riding as a child.  Our dog always ran along with us as we slid down the hill.

Please join us in this challenge and visit My Time To Craft for more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team!

Stay warm, everyone!

Love Is In The Air...

... since, at least, the day after Christmas!  Valentine's Day will be here before you know it, so, how about a little inspiration for that special card?
A Heart Tree is the next best thing to a Money Tree, don't you think?  I distressed and inked the edges of this card after stamping a tree and adding the hearts. A simple, "I Love You" sentiment was the finishing touch.

Now head over to My Time To Craft for this challenge and to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.  Join us!

Stripes - a Great Way to Use Scraps!

Hello again!  I hope you are staying warm in your part of the world.  Here in the U.S. it seems that no place is safe from the cold.  As far as I'm concerned, this is "curl-up with a good book and a blanket" weather...unless, you're in your Craft Room!

This week, the My Time To Craft challenge is Stripes.  I interpreted this as a great way to use some of those scraps that are laying around!

I added a couple of die-cuts, a sentiment, and a sweet resin flower to finish it off.  Done - and I now have less scraps, which is always a good thing!

Be sure to visit My Time To Craft to see what the rest of the team has created, then, join us, won't you?

Have a great weekend - and stay warm!

All Things New

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are ready to get started with some new challenges for the new year. 
 My Time To Craft is starting off the year with All Things New - anything new, house, car, baby, and, of course, new stash!  I chose a new stamp set:
I just love the sentiment.  Isn't that what life is all about?  I used bright colors to brighten up these winter days!  Now head over to My Time To Craft to see what the rest of the Design Team has created for you and then, join us, won't you?
