Fab Challenges

Hi all!  How's January so far?  All it has done since the beginning of December is snow in Kentucky.  Constantly.  We don't even mention snowy days anymore, we comment on the days when there is no snow falling because it's a rarity!  I'm so ready for Spring and flowers and crickets and frogs chirping. 

I have a few challenges I took part in this week.  First up is a card I made for Moxie Fab World's Neutrals Color Challenge:

Oh how I love these soft colors, aren't they beautiful?  I also added this card to The Play Date Cafe's Color Challenge:

Very similar colors : )  And here is my card:

I am so addicted to My Mind's Eye at the moment, seems like that's all I use.  I added a darling bow using Papertrey Ink Ribbon and a Melissa Frances Rub-On. 

Next up is a fun sketch Shimelle created for her readers to use.  I love her blog, always full of wonderful tips and tricks.  Loved the sketch also:

And here's my take on the sketch:

This is Harley, my neighbor.  She's the cutest little dog and loves visiting on pretty Summer Days.  I used My Mind's Eye Patterned Paper and darling stickers from Echo Park.  I'm not big on using stickers, but I'm in love with Echo Park's and can't help myself.  The cute crochet butterflies are from Creative Charms.

I also have a Crop Spot post up at Scrapbooking Supplies R Us on nontraditional Valentine's using the newest Sampler Kit "A Bright New Year"!
