Hello everyone!!! I hope you are all safe and warm on this cold winter morning!! It seems like most of the US is either cold, wet, or covered in snow!! Sounds like a good day to cook a pot of stew, make a pan of corn bread, and stamp!!! This weeks
Color Throwdown Challenge is hosted by Jodi and she has picked such a pretty pallette of colors...so fresh and springy!!
My card features several Taylored Expressions dies and the beautiful sentiment from TE's Discover Your Wings stamp set.
Taylored Expressions Bloom Where You're Planted and Bugabee Flowers dies were used for the flowers and the TE Leafy Branch die was used for the leaves. Enamel dots were added to the flower centers as the finishing touch.
Remember, be sure to add CTD331 to the keywords section when you upload your cards to an online gallery so we can find your creations!!

I used several Taylored Expressions dies along with pictures of Mackenzie and the Temple High School Fall Choir Concert program to create this page.
I found the inspiration for my page with Stephanie Kraft's awesome page found here on Pinterest...I love how she used the black diecuts...they add such a dramatic look!!
The Pockets and Pages - 3x4 Part of my Heart diecut was used for journaling and the Curly Swirlies diecut cut in black was draped along the side. Mackenzie's name was cut with the Sweet and Simple Alpha-Upper and Lower dies and the Just a Not diecuts were added for musical details.
Mackenzie's pictures were framed with the Pockets and Pages Essentials - 4x4 and 4x6 diecuts that were cut out of Toffee card stock and....
The date was created with the Pockets and Pages - 3x4 Banner w/Bonus die and the Chunky #'s.
Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you have a great day....we have freezing rain this morning so what's a girl to do but stay in the craft room and play!!!

Hello everyone!!! Easter will be here before we know it so I have been making cards for my Grands....this one is a little bright so you may need you sunglasses...LOL!!! I bought the Doodlebug washi tape and wanted to use papers that matched the colors.
The cute little basket was created with Rainbow Bright 6x6 paper pack and the A Tisket A Tasket die both from Taylored Expressions. Another basket was cut from Toffee cardstock and added to the back of the orange basket a little off center so it would create a shadow effect. The rose colored patterned paper is from the TE For Peeps Sake 6x6 paper pack and the eggs and flower were cut with dies from the same die set.
The sentiment is from the RE Egg-stra Special stamp set and the enamel dot and twine finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by...have a great day and stay warm on this chilly winter day!!!
