Say Goodbye to 2011....

Sorry I haven't been around lately.  I've been on vacation from work and enjoying a little downtime.  I've done some cleaning, crafting, shopping and lunching with friends.  It's been a blast!  Well, we won't mention the two trips to the dentist to fix some fillings....not so much fun!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and received lots of goodies and not much coal, LOL!!!  I was sweatin' it but didn't get any coal myself so I consider this holiday season a success.

The weather in southeast Wisconsin has been pretty good this year although I missed having a white Christmas.  We haven't had any snow (at least in Kenosha) this year other than a light dusting a few weeks ago.  I heard on the radio that at this time last year we'd already had over 8 inches of the white stuff.  I hope the delay in snow this year doesn't mean we'll have snow in June....yikes!

A few weeks ago I entered a contest to be on the design team for Spellbinders Paper Arts.  Unfortunately I didn't make the first round cut but I wanted to share the project I made. I thought it was a pretty cool idea. It's a circle flip card of the four seasons.  I had a fun time figuring out what to put in each section for Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.  I'm pretty excited that I used paper and supplies I already had at home.  I don't have to tell you guys how exciting it is to use up supplies you have in your stash....I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE buying new stuff but it's nice to use what's already on hand.

Here's the card when it's closed and tied with ribbon.

The WINTER scene used die cuts, stamps, Copics and Candi.  Brrrrr, can't you feel the cold????

The SPRING scene used dies, punches, brads, stamps and Copics.  I can almost smell the flowers!

The SUMMER scene used my Cricut, stamp, Copics and die cuts. I love watermelon - Yum-O!

The FALL scene used die cuts, stamps and Copics. Pumpkins and apples and frogs oh my!

That's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by.  I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year, please be safe.
