Time Out: Thank You For Being So Amazing and My Last Post

Hello there. I love a good photo inspired by bright colors and rainbows...and of course I love stripes. More stamps from my fabulous friend, Erin Lee.  I'm obviously doing this for our reminder post over over at Time Out.  

I also wanted to let you know that this will be my last post on Time Out as well as here on the blog. Life is very good right now.  Yet there are constraints on my time...and I've decided that while crafting will continue to be at the top of my hobby list I will no longer be blogging.  I am FOREVER grateful to my cousin, Sandie, for starting the Time Out Challenge. She and Nonni were amazing for their vision and I have been so inspired and thankful to be a part of it for over seven years!  For those of you who are interested you can find my new side business account at lynn.mangan on Instagram or  I look forward to continuing to be inspired by all of you!

Time Out: Here for You

Hello, hello, hello. My fabulous friend, Erin Lee, sent me some of her gorgeous stamps and I was thrilled to play along. I don't color often, but this was the perfect card to get out my watercolor pen! This is inspired by the current challenge over at Time Out.  I picked up on the word spring with these flowers on the gorgeous stamp.

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: 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.
