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.

Time Out: Dream On

Happy Friday eve my friends! It is time for another challenge at Time Out!  We have a really fun quote to inspire you!  So many directions you could go. I love a good book to pass the time and move me away from any worries, but I decided to go with the dream word from the quote.

Quickly added a stencil from Funky Fossils design and the sentiment and I was ready to go. This card was popped in the mail a couple of weeks ago for my second son along with a couple practical items (updated health insurance cards)...and a gift card to his favorite place. I'm missing him as he is back at school...and I want him to remember to always dream. He is capable of amazing things!

I'm looking forward to seeing how you're inspired to play along. Newton's Nook Designs is our sponsor and you have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate.  Be sure to check out Bobby (one of my favorite bloggers) card and the rest of the design team over at Time Out!
