Time Out: Way to Go Grad


Happy Friday Eve my friends. I'm not sure if you've seen the news over a Time Out but  my dear amazing, cousin, Sandie - one of the original founders of Time Out has decided to step down. Her health has made managing the administrative challenge of Time Out a challenge. But let me say I think SHE IS AMAZING!  She started Time Out seven years ago...and it has continued to challenge. She has created a community of crafters that is absolutely wonderful. This was such a hard decision for her but she knows it is the best one. I love her dearly and so thankful for all she has and continues to do to support this wonderful crafting community.  xoxo

And now onto my card. I don't know about you...but spring is arriving and with that there are so many new beginnings. I am certainly loving being outside to walk more often with the nicer weather!  Our challenge over at Time Out is MOVE.  So many ways you could could with this challenge. I decided to be inspired to make a graduation card...which often involves moving!  Moving to a new city, a new job...always moving!  I love a good collage stamped card as well. I look forward to seeing how you're inspired to play along with us at Time Out.

Time Out: You Are Strong

 


Hello there friends!  Popping in with a reminder post for Time Out! This week our challenge is to be inspired by pets...so you may be wondering what my card has to do with that. One of my dearest friends lost her dog, Indy. Indy was so so loved.  Sweetest puppy. I wanted to let her know that I was thinking of her on the lost of Indy. So my card sending her love as Indy crossed the rainbow bridge.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Topflight Stamps.  Be sure to pop on over to Time Out to play along.

Time Out: It's Your Birthday

Hello there!  I hope the spring weather is happening in your part of the world!  It's time for another challenge over at Time Out and this photo is certain to get you inspired for some spring/summer weather.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Kitchen Sink Stamps and I used their gorgeous Hydrangea stamps for my card. I LOVE hydrangeas. I'm not good at growing them, but I love to admire them. I think you can see how I was inspired by the photo below - love the pop of pink in the flowers.

I hope you come on over to Time Out and play along with us. Please check out our guest designer, Claire, and the rest of the design teams fabulous creations.

Time Out: Where Words Fail Music Speaks

 

Hello there friends! It's time for a fun challenge over at Time Out.  Our theme is Different.  Have fun doing your thing and making something different!  My family has a love for music so that is certainly not different, but a music inspired card is.

For my card, I used the sponsor stamp set from our awesome sponsor, Funky Fossils . I love, love, love their stencils and stamps. Today's card is using the set Guitar Hero. I will be getting a lot of use our of it.

Can you believe it? Time Out is celebrating our 7th birthday! Time certainly flies when you are having fun.  It feels like yesterday that Sandie and Nonni started Time Out. I'm so thankful for the inspiration Time Out provides for me and for the fabulous crafting community it supports. So let's celebrate!

I have a drawer of odds and ends for putting cards together and this card was made from those. My card stash is way too low right now...so this one has already gone out the door to celebrate my niece.
