Penny Black & Flower Soft Joining Forces....

I'm seriously in such a 'dork' mood. We had quite a bit of Star Wars 'this & that' at Christmas so get the title....force.... ;-) C....dork! ;-) Anyhoo....

I'm so EXCITED to be joining with the Penny Black team to combine some super CUTE stamps with some fluffy Flower Soft. The hardest part of this venture was choosing just WHICH cute Penny Black set I would use. I settled on Betsy Bluebell. She's such a little CUTEY! LOVE her! Take a peek.....

Isn't she the cutest?! The paper for this one {yeah, I know....I've kinda done it before. ;-) Can't help it. It's one of my favorite lines!} is from Jillibean Soup. This is from the Christmas line. I LOVE the colors and it works really well for spring also. I also used a bit of Poppy Red Flower Soft for the flower centers. I love the added pop Flower Soft gives to any project.

Next up on the hop.....the super talented,

Enjoy the rest of the hop! Hope you all have a wonderful New Year!

Happy Holidays! FSC43

Hey Peeps! Time for another Flower Soft challenge! This weeks challenge, to make a project geared around the holidays. Hopefully you are all having a WONDERFUL holiday! Life can get so crazy this time of year. It can be so easy to forget what it's a
ll about. I've really enjoyed having some quiet time to reflect on all of the many blessings my family has....that often comes between times of complete chaos....but maybe that's why those moments are so very special! ;-)

I've had a bit of extra time to get in a little paper crafting. I pulled out a topper from the Cute Christmas line for my card today....

Hope you all have a chance to play. This week we are playing for a pot of Polar White Flower Soft and a package of Display Globes. LOVE these globes! They are great for soooo many things! As always, link your card to this post to be included for this weeks challenge. A winner will be chosen next Wednesday so be on the lookout for an email announcing if it's you! If you are uploading your creations to SCS please use the keyword FSC43.

Check out the rest of the DT to see what they have created....

Back again with a little something, something from Ippity. Take a peek at what I created for today.....

This little bee is so stinkin' cute! I used some Jillibean Soup and more of what is becoming my FAVORITE ribbon ever! {from American Crafts}.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm off. Time for a little Christmas shopping....hoping to finish. How nice would that be! We are supposed to get snow Friday. I am NO good at driving in snow so it would be wonderful not to have anywhere to go!

Hope you all have a great day! I will post you soon!

Think Snow

Are you thinking snow? It's that time of year and here in the Indianapolis area we are still waiting for substantial snowfall. For me, it just doesn't seem quite like the holidays until the ground is covered in the white stuff. This coming from a girl from the south!

This weeks Flower Soft challenge is to 'Think Snow'. We are all creating a little something with that in mind. I pulled out a little Polar White and one of my FAVORITE toppers, Window Shopping, and here's what I came up with.....

I love this image. I opted for a simple layout to really let the topper 'pop'. Here's a close up with the layers....

One of my favorite things about this kit is that the pieces are all die cut. I love that I don't have to cut each piece out. It makes for an easy assembly.

Be sure and check out the entire team:

Have a good one! :-)
