You and Me


Good morning everyone!!! We are a little chilly here in Central Texas....below freezing this morning!! We covered up the large plants outside and brought in all the smaller ones...my family room looks like a jungle...LOL!!! It is supposed to warm up to the middle 50's by noon so the cold won't last too long!! I have been taking down Christmas stuff...ya, I know I'm a little behind but hopefully, I will have it all boxed up by February...LOL!! Taking down the stuff isn't so bad but dusting and sweeping afterwards is a real bummer!!! Anyway...

I made this card for Splitcoast's Ways to Use It Challenge to use stickers. I used some old Stampin Up! sentiment and heart stickers...I have had them forever!!! The die cut flowers were made with a Tim Holtz die and some Authentique papers...The Mojo Monday 223 sketch was used for the layout and buttons and seam binding finish it off.
Recipe: Paper: Vanilla, Chocolate Chop, Authentique's Gathering dp
Ink: Ranger Vintage Photo for sponging
Accessories: Buttons, Baker's Twine, Leaf Spellbinders die, Tim Holtz flower die, Seam Binding, Stampin Up! stickers, SU scalloped border punch, sewing machine


This is also for a few other challenges:
1. 4 Crafty Chicks - recipe challenge (1 ribbon, 2 buttons, 3 layers)
2. Gingersnap Creations - Ribbon
3. Simon Says Stamps - dots and/or stripes

Thanks for dropping by...have a great Friday!!!!
