Thanks . . . . Clementine

I love this paper !!!! On this card I've used Clementine and my Cricut Artiste Cartridge to make the pinwheel and sentiment. The sentiment is from Casual Expressions.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this turned out!!!! I'm so glad Clementine is staying in the New 2013 Catalog. 

OK I'm having technical difficulties. I do not think it is because of my lack of knowledge but my photos are not uploading to post. So I'm going to TRY facebook until the issues are resolved but as you all know facebook has issues too. So please bare with me my posts will be a little wacky for a while.

January Snowflakes . . .

So over at heart to heart this weeks challenge was SNOWFLAKES!!!!! If you know me you know snowflakes have a special place in my heart.  I love how each one is different and that reminds me that each one of us was created to be unique and special.  So this page I've had prepared for a while but for some reason it has sat until now in my drafts folder. Hmmm well thanks to H2H I've dusted it off.
Have I said I LOVE THESES mittens?

Each mitten is a little different using my Cricut Artiste Cartridge and some glitzy glitter it was a snap.

So if you'd LOVE to see the other snowy creations at Heart 2 Heart hears the link H2H .

Scrap with STELLA

Stella will soon no longer be available so get it before it's gone.  I'm trying to stay positive about all the great papers going away it sure helps knowing that great New Papers are coming soon.

I used the Stella B&T Duos and the Just for you B size stamp set. The Celebrate is stamped from the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection.  The emblems and Letters are cut from the Art Philosophy Cartridge. The card stock is Lagoon, Sunset, Olive and Cocoa.  The blosoms embellished with the smallest bling button from the Bohemian Assortment.
