Hello everyone!!

It has been a crazy couple of days here in "sunny" Florida! We've had freeze warnings the past couple of nights and they say we may even get snow flurries tomorrow!! *gasp!* I know I musn't complain because a lot of people up North are getting a lot more than flurries. I'm just not too fond of the freezing white stuff! hee hee. I do hope everyone stay safe and keep warm. :) :)

I took on the Color Throwdown today! So happy to be doing a CTD challenge again. Also, the ladies have Ms Kristin as their new design team member! What fab news!! A super talented lady added to an awesome group of ladies! SO MUCH FUN! Wee!!! This week, there are prizes to be had so check them out you guys! :)

Also, I used Ms Taylor's Sketch as insipiration. I have to say, this sketch was a real challenge. The layout is simple but, I wanted to treat it differently than what is expected. I had fun trying and creating. I hope you enjoy it!! :)

Thanks for looking!! and of course, I'd love to hear what you think! :)

gorgeous!! Love the stitched dome and the cut out butterflies!!

You sound like my sister!! She lives in FL and has been complaining about the cold weather--she would die if she were here in VA--we still have remnants for our 26inch snowfall just before Christmas!!

28 degrees--I did get what you meant, but thought you might get a kick out of the fact that we had 9 degrees this AM--single digits!! BRRRR!! I am enjoying the roaring fire!! Nothing beats a woodstove for keeping you warm!! Happy Stamping!!

This is STUNNING! Love that you thought outside the box with Taylor's sketch...did you write the words on your card? What an amazing idea!!!

Love what you did with our colors. You kept them fresh and fun, yet elegant! Just beautiful, girly!

Thanks for the shout out and for playing along with us this week! Love seeing your beautiful work ♥
