PaperCrafts - Inspired By!

Well there is lots to be inspired by in PaperCrafts Card Creations 7 but how could Danni Reid's card on Page 138 not make you want to use white! So for the Inspired By Challenge over at PaperCrafts Connection I choose that card to make one of my own... white on white on white... lol!
I also used some of my little round prima flowers that I have been holding on too.
I thought they would me the perfect eye catcher for this monochromatic card!


Moxie Fab - Old Country Challenge!

Ok so was this month's Moxie Fab's Christmas In the Old Country Challenge tough or WHAT! I seriously struggled and my friends Regs even bought me a Martha Stewart gnome sticker (he is still sitting on my desk smiling at me... lol).
Then I thought just focus on what jumps out at me the most and it was the little graphic flowers on the purple t-shirt from Adorable.
So while the challenge didn't inspire me to do Christmas, it did inspired me...

All Things

Supplies... Everything is Papertrey Ink except the QuicKutz embossing folder, the DCWV glitter cardstock and the ribbon... also a gift from my girl Regs!

Little Red Wagon - Heavy Metal!

Welcome back... it is time for another challenge! This week's challenge is brought to us by Joanne and it was a tough one! She choose Heavy Metal - also known as anything metal on your project. Can you believe I almost went out and bought something but then I remembered... we are supposed to be using stuff from our wagon. So... I found these metal letters, so old I can't remember where they came from! Put them together with some gorgeous Christmas paper and a little ruffle... ta da!

Happy Holidays!
