Tuesday's Trigger

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Loved this week's image for Tuesday's Trigger! 
I had so much fun  making this card.  I can't believe I didn't mess it up with all those ink pads opened up on my desk.  Somehow I managed to keep it clean!

Thanks for coming by {again} today!

12 Kits Of Holidays {January}

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Hello!  It's time again for the 12 Kits, but with a twist!
This year we have decided to celebrate many holidays throughout the year, not just Christmas.  Don't worry there will be plenty of Christmas inspiration about every other month, but sprinkled in will be holidays like Thanksgiving, Halloween, Easter, and of course, VALENTINE"S DAY!!
We will continue to post on the last day of every month.
Along with the format change we also have a few new faces.  We will miss having Suzanne and Cathy joining us each month, but in their places we have some wonderfully talented additions....Tracey and Kelly!

Each member will host a different month.
This month's kit creator was Joyce
She put together some of my favorite colors and images for this Valentine's Day kit.

These tandem bikes are just so sweet!

I love making tiny love notes. 
 I have made several sets in the past, like these, these, and these.
I'm sure I'll make them again:)

I decided to package '5 things I love about you' in a little red box.





I hope you will take some time to visit the rest of the ladies.
I can't wait to see what they have made!

Kit Supplies Include: Papertrey Ink, Wplus9, Lil' Inker, Technique Tuesday, Verve, Stampin' Up, Paper Smooches, Sizzix, Queen and Co.

Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop {Black Backgrounds}

Friday, January 25, 2013

Black Backgrounds
Last month's PTI Blog Hop Challenge was all about White
This month it's all about Black!
I had fun making this one.  I knew I wanted to use squares, so I die cut a bunch from white, pink, and two shades of red.  I drew one, straight, diagonal line and started working from there.  Then, when most of the real estate was taken, I started building up!
 I can't wait to see your designs!
New projects have been added to this week's Friday Inspiration File...#101.
I'll be back soon to announce the winner of my 100 Weeks Of Inspiration Challenge.

ColourQ #173 {You're The One}

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

It's time for a new challenge from the ColourQ!
I love the soft, muted colors on this skirt.  Again, I didn't have one of the colors, the apricot.
I substituted an orange.  When stamping I used the 'stamping off' technique to get a slightly less intense orange color. 
I hope you'll join us this week.
Have a great day!
