'merry' 5 ways...

Hello.  I have a quick post to share today as I am joining in this week's Merry Monday Challenge.  This week's theme is to use 5 of something in our projects.  

Here's my take on the challenge:

I decided to use Papertrey's Wreath for All Season to create my card.

I love this sweet little set.

The bow was cut from PTI's Merry Kiss-mas dies.

Thanks for stopping by!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Always Thinking of You...

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  We were busy with baby showers, dinner guests, and soccer games and our days off seemed to just fly by!

Today, I am joining Lexi's Challenge over at Papertrey Ink.  She gave us a an easy to follow tutorial on how to play with patterns.  

Here's my take on the challenge:

I used PTI's Limitless Layers: Heart Stitches Dies along with Pure Poppy and White Basics Paper to create the hearts.

The sentiment is from Brushed Blooms.

Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Playing along with Lizzie over at Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge.  She created the most adorable spinner card and has a very helpful tutorial if you are interested in playing along.

Here's my take on the challenge:

I immediately knew I wanted to use a snowflake as my centerpiece.  We don't get any snow out here in the Phoenix area but it's been extremely cold all week (thirties, haha!) so I thought I would use that as an excuse to pull out some sweet little flakes!  A girl can dream...

I loved Lizzie's aqua and red card so I didn't stray too far from her from her color scheme.

Isn't it fun?

I used Snowflake Medley, Quilted Winter, and Christmas Cheer to create my card.

Thanks for stopping by.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Happy Wednesday!  Today's card was created for Papertrey Ink's Monthly Blog Hop Challenge.  I love the adorable little cookies in this month's inspiration photo...too cute to eat!

Here's my take on the challenge:

I used PTI's Mini Blooms Stamps and Dies for the sentiment and flowers.

Oh, deer!

Happy Sunday!  I am joining (last minute) Merry Monday's Card Challenge.  I have been trying to craft all week and my kiddos had other plans for me!  This week's challenge was to use a reindeer in our project.  There are so many adorable entries so make sure you stop by and check out the Merry Monday Blog!

I created my card using Papertrey Ink's Tinsel and Tags set. 

I don't think there will ever be another set that I cherish as much as Tinsel and Tags.

Isn't he such a cutie?   

I added fine glitter to create a little winter wonderland for him to hang out in.

Thanks for stopping by!

Heart Wreath

Happy Wednesday!  Today, I am playing along in Papertrey's Make it Monday Challenge.  Melissa Phillips created the most beautiful masked heart wreath and has a fabulous tutorial on how to create her beautiful card!

Here's my take on the challenge:

I used PTI's Twig Wreath Stamp set to create my little heart wreath.  

Isn't this a beautiful sentiment?  I love every last quote from the Choose Joy set.

Thanks for stopping by!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Hi, there.  I am playing along in this week's Merry Monday Challenge.  I was lucky enough to receive a runner-up spot last week and am so thankful for the kind mention. There are always so many talented individuals who play along in Merry Monday!

This week's challenge is to use a 'NOEL' sentiment and/or create a Scandinavian themed project.  

I used Papertrey Ink's Holiday Folk kit to create my card.  The sentiment is from PTI's Signature Christmas stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by!  I look forward to seeing your creations.
