Love Is All Around

It's almost February, so it's time to spread some love around.  Please join the challenge at My Time To Craft, even if you're not a fan of Valentine's Day.  You can create something to celebrate a wedding, anniversary, or just to say 'I love you'!
I started with some Kraft paper, added a couple of layers, some ribbon, a heart, and some stamping to finish it off.

For once, I'll be ready for the next birthday that comes along!

Friends

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are ready for the new year.  Did you make any resolutions?  I'm still working on it!

The Design Team at My Time To Craft has a new challenge for you, though...Friends/Friendship.  Here's what I created:
Once again, this card was made entirely from materials that I already had in my craft room.  There's nothing like a little bling to dress up a card, don't you think?  

Be sure to stop by My Time To Craft to see what the rest of the Design Team has created to inspire you.  You won't be disappointed!

Join us, won't you?

Christmas - Last Minute!

Christmas is officially less than a week away and i hope you are all ready.  Keeping in mind there are always lots of things to do and there is always "something" you need at the last minute, I bring you.......
TAGS!!

I grabbed my stamps, ink, and my Cricut and made a bunch of these, because, let's be honest, no one likes their name written on a package with a Sharpie!  LOL

This is the last challenge of 2015 at My Time To Craft.  Be sure to stop by for some inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas, and, I'll see you in 2016!

Christmas Animals

It's December already and Christmas will be here before we know it.  My Time To Craft challenges you to create something with Christmas Animals.

Let It Snow

No snow here, yet, but I'm sure it won't be long!  At My Time To Craft we are getting into the spirit of the season with the new challenge:

Let It Snow!
A snowy, candle-lit window - I've had this stamp  for a long time and never used it. Somehow, I thought it was the perfect fit for this challenge.
Be sure to stop by My Time To Craft to see the creations there and be sure to join us for this one.  You have 2 weeks to get creative!

Quilt It!

It's Spring in November around here.  We hit 70 degrees today and I'm not complaining, although it's odd to see the leaves blowing down the street when we are outside without jackets!
In spite of the warm weather, the new challenge at My Time To Craft is "Quilt It".  It makes you think of chilly nights curled up on the couch, doesn't it?
This card was pieced together with paper from my stash...It's a great way to use those scraps that we all have!  Be sure to visit My Time To Craft for more inspiration from the Design Team and to get all the details on this challenge.

I hope you'll join us - remember, you have 2 weeks to "get your craft on" for this challenge.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Inspired by the Beatles...

...or by music! 
Welcome back.  We've been having wind, rain, and chilly temperatures.  All of which have blown most of the leaves off the maple tree.  Before you know it, the "white stuff" will be flying!!
In the meantime, we at My Time To Craft would like to challenge you to create something new.
I used a general music theme with the title of a famous Beatles song.  Three black pearls and a polka dot flower dress it up.

Be sure to stop by My Time To Craft to be inspired by the rest of the Design Team. Remember, you have 2 weeks to join us.

Autumnal Colors

Fall has arrived around here.  My maple tree is turning a beautiful red and the mums are all in bloom.  Plenty of inspiration for the new challenge at My Time To Craft - Autumnal Colors:
I'm so glad I finally got to use this stamp.  The colors are Barn Red, Autumn Terracotta, and Honey.  The leaves were stamped and fussy-cut.  A few layers were added and the pewter button is self-adhesive.  I had a friend in mind when I made this card, so it's going in the mail pretty quick. I hope she likes it.

Be sure to stop by My Time To Craft to see what the rest of the Design Team has in-store for you...then, I hope you'll join us!

Have a wonderful weekend...

Welcome Back to a new challenge from My Time To Craft.  For the next 2 weeks we want to see your 'Alice Inspired' Creations.

The colors remind me of Fall.  Something tells me I will be drinking hot tea in the afternoon very soon!
I hope you'll join us with this challenge.  Be sure to drop by My Time To Craft for more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.

Owls

September already - I hope you are enjoying the last days of summer!  We had some really hot weather the past week and now, it is starting to cool off.  The trees are starting to change colors and I even have some leaves scattered on the lawn.  It's almost time to make an apple pie!

This week at My Time To Craft we challenge you to create something with owls.  
I used 2 owls, since one looked a little lonely on that branch.  

Do you have any owls in your craft space?  We hope you'll get them out and get creative. Be sure to stop by My Time To Craft for some inspiration from our Design Team.  

Our challenges will remain on the 2 week schedule through December, so you have plenty of time to join us!  

Enjoy your weekend!

Flowers & a Recycle

Welcome back!  This week at My Time To Craft the challenge is 'Flowers'.  I must admit, this is one of my favorites and I decided to recycle one of those shopping bags that are collecting in my closet.  Here's how it turned out:
I stamped the sentiment on a doily and glued it on the bag to cover brand.  The flowers were made with my Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge.  The pink ones were dressed up with a little 'bling'.  

Here's the before:
From shopping bag to gift bag!
Now it's your turn - you don't have to recycle something, but you do need to have flowers on your project and share it with us at My Time to Craft.  You have 2 weeks  and we can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
