Love is in the Air

Good Morning!  I hope everyone is having a good week.  We are expecting 10-15 inches of snow in the Northeast tonight into tomorrow.  Luckily most of the snow we got a couple of weeks ago has melted so it will be easier to shovel.  I like the change of seasons and the snow is really pretty when it is falling but it is a pain to clean up and drive in even once it has stopped. 

Today's theme for Going Grey with Scrap-Creations is Love is in the air.  I wanted to do something that wasn't a straight Valentines day card so I when I looked though my stamps I saw this Sugar Nellie and thought Love Letters.   You should join the fun!  Pull out those stamps that say Love to you and play with us! 

The other wonderful challenges this card fits are:

Cupcake Craft - Something New.  My new is my lace.  I found it in a sale bin and loving lace like I do bought it.

Fun with Shapes - Letter - Well, my card is called Love letter because she is reading it in her card.

Happy Birthday

I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year.  I had an early night by having Dinner and seeing a movie with my sister.  The weather here was beautiful.  It was in the 40's all weekend which is melting all the snow we got last week.   I decided to organize my DP (gulp) this weekend.  I kept tripping over it where I had it and I always reach for my 6 x 6 paper so I cut up alot of it into 6 x 6 sheets and put in with my other packs.  Now, of course, I need a new container of which Michaels is out of so a bunch is sitting in a pile when I get a new container.  I hope this works and I use alot of my older paper that I forgot I had.  This card is a perfect example.  This DP is some old SU that I had and love but never reach for because I have to dig for it my my 12 x 12.  I think it fits this card perfectly with the colors. 

Today is a new theme and a great sponsor for the Going Grey with Scrap-Creations challenge.  The theme is a wonderful Sketch seen below and the sponsor is StampFairy.  They have the cutest stamps.  I loved this bear.   To see more of their wonderful stamps you need to see what the other great creations from the other DT's.  You can find them on my sidebar.
