Winter is Here!

Happy belated Christmas! I hope everyone enjoyed the DCRU and PGP blog hops I've been a part of the last couple of weeks. This week at Die Cuts R Us we are having special Guest Designers to share inspiration with all of you! Our first Guest Designer is my sweet and crafty friend Jenn Koss! Check out her amazing treat box! And don't forget, each day a new Guest Designer will share a special creation!

Now a winner! I used random.org to find the winner of my mini kit for the DCRU hop! And it is Laura of Crafty Little Woman (aka Madeleine Bouquet). Just e-mail me Laura and I'll get your package in the mail. And if you are a fan of Twilight, check out Laura's blog post for today!
Ready for some creating? I've got 2 cards to share today. The first I made in honor of New Years. I decided to add a little color to the holiday:

My next card is a Valentine:

I'm in love with my new Martha Stewart butterfly punch I used for this card! I've had my eye on it a while, just hated to pay so much for a punch. So word of advice, go to Michaels.com and print a coupon before you visit their store. Then you can get your punch cheaper! I used Papertrey Ink patterned paper to punch 2 butterflies and then layered them.

And I have some happy animal news. We have a new animal rescue in the area, the Appalachian SPCA! Click on their name to follow the link! And I would be greatful if you would become a follower if you have Facebook. They are trying to reach 1000 followers by 2010! Their Facebook link is on their homepage!

Guess what, it's white outside AGAIN! More snow and more expected for the New Year! I've already got Spring Fever!

Love the cards...is that a new punch? I have a MS butterfly punch...not sure if it is the same.

Amber, I LOVE LOVE LOVE your cards! They are so fun and perfect for New Years!

Ohh, you are a very blessed girl. I would do kart-wheels in the snow if we would get just enough to cover the ground! ROFL!!! Me doing kart-wheels... Now THATS funny! Everything does not stay in place like it used too. Heehee
