Inspired By #1

I was introduced to a new Challenge yesterday through my friend LeAnne - I'm so inspired by photos, I thought I'd play along... thanks, LeAnne!

Here is the first challenge of  2018 from Laurel Seabrook at Inspired By: Winter Cookies!


Isn't it pretty?  Don't you want a cookie?  These are so pretty I couldn't eat one ... but my husband would eat every one!




I'm also sending this over to Time Out for their 100th Challenge - Thank You!!


Thank YOU for stopping by!

Supplies:  A wonderful Thank You Streamer, Poppystamps die from Hazel [thank you Hazel]; gorgeous Reverse Confetti snowflakes, an E.H. balloon die from Yay!  and Stickles for snowy 'frosting!'

Lovely card and I agree with Amy, perfect for Laurel's challenge. She's a fabulous crafter to follow if you haven't started. She is a genius with patterned paper. :) I've "known" her for years! :)

Oh how sweet!! Someone is going to smile when they open this envelope! Brilliant idea, and you've really captured the sweetness of the inspiration photo. What a great thank you card! Love it. Supposed to start warming up around here - I'll try to send some across the lake... ; ) Bev

I do like the away you think, this is such a fun take on the challenge photo! The balloons strings are nifty and I like that you only used a portion of the big balloon. Those are some pretty little cookies are they!
