Happy Hump Day Everyone!

I made this card for yesterday's color challenge- CC303 at Splitcoast Stampers. What a fun color challenge - old olive, night of navy, daffodil delight and neutrals of choice..
I used sneak peaks from the January release- Faith and Butterfly Corner stamp sets which will be available at Our Daily Bread Designs designs on January 1. The butterfly is cut out with a die which will also be available. The dp is Basic Grey Marjolaine.

I used the Mojo Monday 171 sketch. The large squares are cut out with the new Spellbinders Grand Calibur Machine and the Grand Squares dies.

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - over 600 so far !

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

Have you entered my new candy

Dear Chris,

I am in love with this butterfly set-up. I can not wait until the hop on the 1st! I love the way you used the colors...they are beautiful with this sketch. It is wonderful!

I really love this super fun bookmark you made! Those girls look like they will be BFF! I want to get a closer look at how you actually made it. I get all caught up in the coloring and bling...and missed how you made it! I may need to CASE the lay-out only if you don't mind. I would of course give you credit. Is that ok with you?

I really want to let your readers know what a sweet-heart you are! Chris came to my rescue with a technical problem...even though we are in the holidays, and she is so busy-- all of the time. We all know these cards and bookmarks take a while to make...and she has a family...which she has mentioned. Busy Lady! But not too busy to be a friend. I want to acknowledge what a wonderful friend you are, Chris. I know it is your beautiful heart for the Lord that makes you who you are. You are appreciated and loved.

Traci S.
