Time Out: Thanks for Everything

I'm back for a reminder post for the current challenge over at Time Out!  The challenge is a theme challenge to be use embellishments on your card.  I also love a touch of twine and a few gems here and there so I immediately new what I'd add to the card.

Our sponsor is Birch Press Designs and I've used this fabulous Stitched Maple Circle Frame die that they sent to me.  It is a lot of fun.. I used the middle maple leaf but could use it for some many other things.  Be sure to pop on over to their blog to take a look at all of their fabulous stamping goodies!

Time Out: Happy Birthday to You

I'm back for a reminder post for the current challenge over at Time Out!  The challenge is a theme challenge to be inspired by the gorgeous inspiration photo above. At first I was going to go for the butterfly inspiration but I quickly changed to the stripes and flowers (a definite go to for me). I made two cards with the same theme:  which one do you like better?



Our sponsor is Altenew - they have the most incredible multi-layer stamps.   Be sure to pop on over to their blog to take a look at the inspiration their design team has using their gorgeous stamps.

We'd love to see how you are inspired by the photo.  Come on over to  Time Out to play along with us and gain the change to win some Altenew goodies!  And be sure to pop on over to our guest designer Bobby for gorgeous inspiration as well!  I have been a long time fan of Bobby and you will love her gorgeous CAS designs!  So happy to have you designing with us Bobby!

Time Out: Happy Birthday

I'm back for a reminder post for the current challenge over at Time Out!  Our challenge is a word challenge: Unique! I love the Catherine Pooler stamps we got for our challenge - I love sentiments so (Simply Stated Set) very much so I used the sentiment for my card along with repeating the flower - I thought it was fun to have one unique colored flower.
