Monday Morning Colors

Good morning everyone!  Welcome to your Monday morning Color Pallete courtesy of Christian Paper Crafts!  These colors reminded me of "old school" with the chalkboard and primary look!  Since we have had so much snow, school has been canceled for the little ones around here for quiet a bit this Winter season.  Hopefully they will get back on track soon!

Have a great day & God Bless You,

Love Snowmen - Dispise Snow

I'm a total sucker for snowmen!  I just love 'em - the faker the better though!  This little gal may be from the PaperTreyInk Friendship Jar Holiday fillers set, but she is escaping from her jar for the moment.  And those extra "snow" dots there - that's made with the cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder.  Jusst make sure to have your artwork inked and colored before you run it through the cuttlebug to ensure you get your crisp stamp lines!  Wonderful sketch from Sketch Tuesday at Christian Paper Crafts!  Speaking of which, have you checked it out lately?  Uh!  Wowzers over there!!
This little card is also for the following challenges: The Paper Variety, Stamp Insanity, SCS Ways to Use It, Pixie Dust Studio, and the Colour Create blog!

*Snowy Saturday*

Snow...  I am so over the white stuff!  We have had more than our fair share around here this year.  At least this snow is on the weekend, and I am home with my loves!  Since school has not started back yet, I get to spend the snowy day catching up on housework and playing with paper and material!!  I just wish my mommy lived closer so we could do this together!
My first little creation today is for the Clean and Simple Challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts today, as well as the sketch and color challenge over at SplitCoastStampers.
(Paper: PaperTreyInk; Images & Sentiment: PaperTreyInk; Misc: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, Cricut shape, gingham ribbon)

And in some happy, scrappy news, I'm now a Scrapbook Specialist at Christian Paper Crafts!  Below is a page a created from our "Christmas Vacation" to the Inn at Christmas Place in Tennessee this past December!

Fun-ly Friday

I'm actually excited to go in and get my work day over with!  When I get home, my loves will be waiting and the weather man says we may be snowed in this weekend!  Ahhh - time to play with paper!
Today is Fun on Friday at Christian Paper Crafts and I can't wait to show you what I made.  You see, if you've ever visited my blog, you know 1) I almost always have a brown or kraft card base, 2) bright colors are WAY outside of my comfort zone!  But look below:
(Cardstock: PaperTreyInk; Designer Paper: Basic Grey; Stamps: PaperTreyInk - Love Song, PaperTreyInk - Background Basics-Music; Misc: buttons, cuttlebug, lace trim)

What's even wilder is that I am actually tickled with it!  A real oddity for me and my creations!  Along with the Fun on Friday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts, this card also falls under the Color Dare challenge for this week, Fab n Funky's challenge, and the wonderful sketch is from Sweet Sketch Wednesday!
I hope your weekend is as lovely as you are!

God Bless You,

Love Notes

So maybe I'm stuck in the Valentine mode for good!  With snow in the forecast for the end of this week as well as next week, ANYTHING closer to Spring is sounding better and better everyday!
My little project today is a suprise for my hubby...  Shhhh, don't tell!  Instead of aValentine card to get lost in the stack of others, I decided to make a "pocket of love notes"!
I measured the envelope, then cut each of the papers a little smaller and matted another paper on top of there with an image from 2010 Love Tags stamped on each of them.  I plan to take a little time from now until Valentine's to write him some really heartfelt "aka mushy" love notes to tuck inside :) 
 (Paper: PaperTreyInk; BoBunny; Images: PaperTreyInk - 2010 Love Tags; Ink - PaperTreyInk - Pure Popp; Misc- Ribbon, cuttlebug swiss dots folder)
Happy Wednesday - Half way through the work week!

Feeling Lovey

I know  it's only the 4th day of January and I'm ready to jump into Valentine's Day!  Think - it's that much closer to Spring!  The funnier part of the story is that our church's Ladies Auxillary is just now getting to have their Christmas part tonight - and here I am in a Valentine mood!
My card today is inspired by the awesome sketch at Christian Paper Crafts for Sketch Tuesday today!
Cardstock: PaperTreyInk; Designer Paper: PaperTreyInk; Images: 2010 Love Tags - PaperTreyInk, Background Basics - Music - PaperTreyInk; Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Copics, RV00, RV02, RV09, PaperTreyInk Hibiscus; Misc - Ribbon, jute,button, trim, cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder

Have a "lovely" Tuesday!
