Inspired By #163 - take a number
Take a number? I couldn't help myself - I had all these wonderful Pooh quotes left in my brain from last week - I couldn't think of a more perfect time to use this one...

Inspired By #162 - Quote me!
Quote Me. No! not ME, but any quote that you love! and you know I do love a certain bear - today, he's representing a very famous bear named Winnie the Pooh - and there are so many things that Winnie has said that I've used on a few cards over the years! Here's another favorite:

Playing Cards with Friends - Marcia Hill
Turning the calendar to February is always such a relief - do you feel the same? Oh, don't think that we won't have plenty of Winter weather yet here in Michigan, but I always feel like I can make it because of this shorter month!
For the February 2021 edition of Playing Cards with Friends, I've invited a very dear friend who I've been lucky enough to actually craft with! IN PERSON - remember that?? Marcia Hill, of Marcia's Stampin' Pad, is not only sweet, kind, and generous, she's a fabulous card maker, too! We often compare notes when MFT has a release to ask 'did you get this?' or 'do you have that?'
Of all the things we mutually love, Marcia has a wonderful stash of MFT Birdie Brown sets ... this one [Warmest Wishes] I loved so much, I HAD TO make it my own. Here are the parameters I assigned to our play day:
- · MFT Birdie Brown: Warmest Wishes and dies
- · Make it a Valentine!!
- · Copic coloring
... and lastly added a bit of Frosted Lace Stickles! Voila!Marcia - thanks for generously sharing your crafty stash, and studio with me in the 'good old days!' I cannot WAIT until the day we'll be playing cards together again!
Thank YOU my friends for stopping by today, and being so generous with your kind comments on my Playing Cards with Friends posts! Who knows? YOU might receive an invitation to play, too - if so, I do hope you'll say YES! xo

CAS Christmas February 2021 - Christmas Kickstart #47
I seldom combine challenges, but these two: CAS Christmas February 2021, and Christmas Kickstart #47 are so easily combined, I simply had to!
CAS Christmas is asking for Cats or Dogs, and Christmas Kickstart a slimline design - here's how I put them together using those sweet mittened-kittens from Colorado Craft Company's Kittens and Mittens! and their coordinating dies. Let's start with a closeup...So happy these three little kittens DIDN'T lose their mittens!

The Flower Challenge #53
Happy weekend eve! I woke to a bright, fresh, white 5" blanket of that four letter word this morning! I really needed something to brighten my attitude - flowers it is!
I have been pushing myself to use more color and made a discovery about colored cardstocks ... these lovelies are from MFT...I really hate to waste one teensy bit of it. You'll see evidence of that here. Reminds me of a pocket square - Bond, James Bond style. He left just enough space for a showing of my fave Dotted Swirls debossing plate.

CASology #383 - envelope
Inspired By #160 - krafty love
I adore this image ... and the look of natural French linen! What better way to embrace their look than with kraft card stock? and a snippet of patterned paper, perhaps? That is where my heart took me for my IB160 card ...
Perhaps you didn't even notice the woodgrain of the table those little sachets were lying on? I never miss a chance to use this old wood grain embossing folder from The Paper Studio! I've added a little love by way of my MFT Blueprints tag builder 3, and brought out my sewing machine - we're getting along better today. Don't even ask about the patterned paper - it's been around for much too long to still have the packaging - there was just enough to cut my MFT Stitched heart!
So where will your heart take you? We're so hoping it will lead you to join us this week! Let's go see how our team was inspired by IB160, shall we?
