Spring wishes....
Soft, whispy, plum-y, gorgeousness....

Playing favorites...


Hey there...  how are you all?  Managing to ward off those January blues?  We're warm and cozy in our little house here....listening to the wind howl outside and thankful that we have lights and heat and warmth, unlike lots of others in the area right now because of an ice storm that went through.  Tonight I'm missing my Go-to Gal pals just a bit as I know they're off partying it up at CHA.....in warmer than Iowa, but possibly just as rainy California.  I hope they're having a great time and they better fill me in on all the good stuff when they get back. (girls, if you're reading this, that IS a threat.)  heehee.   

How 'bout a few cards on this late Saturday night?   First is a sweet friendship card using some of my favorite goodies.....


Stamps: Blooming Button Bits,Friends til the End,Mega Mixed Messages
Cardstock:  Papertrey Rustic Cream,Sweet Blush
Ink:  Spring Moss, Hibiscus Burst,
Patterned paper:  Basic Grey Lemonade, Pink Paislee
Other:  Spring Moss, Aqua Mist and Hibiscus buttons, Rustic Cream button twine, Marvy scallop oval punch

And up next is a totally just for fun birthday card with more of my favorite things....Jenni Bowlin bingo card, Basic Grey chipboard, Melissa Frances rub-ons and Papertrey buttons.  Doesn't get any more fun than that...  :-)



And just a heads up....there is going to be so much going on in the next while and I am so excited about all of the creative challenges ahead of me for the coming month!  Papertrey Ink is going to hosting their huge anniversary celebration the entire first half of February... I just got some of the details and you are NOT going to want to miss a minute of it!  Whew!  I can't wait!  Just what we need around here to make those winter blahs stay far, far away.  :-)  Before we know it, it will be spring. 

And if you're up for an inspiring challenge, head over to my good friend Melissa Phillips...she's started a new challenge and she has the most beautiful photo to inspire you.  I've got my card already made, how 'bout you?  I'll share it with you in a few days..... 

Until then!
