Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend!! I know I did. I did not do much in the way of crafting....unfortunately I fell down our basement stairs on Thursday and was in a lot of pain especially the day after the fall. I am so thankful that I was not more seriously hurt and just sore. That is a true blessing!! Yesterday our family enjoyed a much needed relaxing day with our friends. We had a great time together.

Anywho..although I am crafting much more slowly than I would like, I have a few things to share with you.

The first card is one that I created for Splitcoast Stampers IC216 challenge and Thursday's WT254 challenge (cut out), and Stampin Sisters in Christ: (For this challenge, since most seeds come up as tiny green shoots, use the color green somewhere in your creation, not all over green, just a touch somewhere). I was inspired by wall paper and I thought the dp in my background was similar.

The image is a sneak peak of a new February 1 release from Our Daily Bread Designs: He Watches Over Me. I just love the four new releases that are coming in February!!! The dp is Nook an Pantry from Basic Grey.

stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: He Watches over Me
Paper: Basic Grey Nook and Pantry
Accessories: Fleur De Lis Spellbinders Die, circle spellbinders die, teal satin ribbon, copics

Verse for which the challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ was based on:
1 Peter 1:23 (NIV) "For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God."

The second card set I created is one that I created for Friday's Sketchers Sketch Challenge #86 and Practical Scrappers (to use patterned paper). My image is from my dear friend and dt sister Lacey's store Stamp and Create. I is called Carrot Bunny set from My Heart Stamps for You. You can find this stamp in Lacey's store here.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: My Heart Stamps for you-Carrot Bunny set- from Stamp And Create
Paper: Memory Box-Sabrina, Black and white CS
Accessories: BossKut Flourish Die, Martha Stewart fabric flower stickers, MS pearl, sewing machine

When I was making this card, I thought it would be fun to making a matching carrot treat box. I found the template here. I used the same stampset from Lacey's store and My Mind's Eye Bloom and Grow DP. I dyed the raffia in hunter green.

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoy my creations and that you have time to create!! The weather is awful here (torrential rain and wind) so I will be staying here for sure to blog hop, craft and teach my girls. Have a great day!
