Card of the Week & Fab 5!

Wow has this been a week of extreme temperatures or what?  We are in that part of the country that had record high temps in the middle of the week and then as the weekend approached we saw rain, hail and other extreme conditions that forced us to reach for our winter woolies.  Granted we do live in Colorado and we are camping in the Rockies so we do have to be prepared for all weather conditions.  Yesterday we drove high up into the mountains to visit an old mining ghost town and it was snowing!

I love taking mini vacations because I always find a ton of inspiration both in nature and my surroundings.  After time away from my crafting I am fully recharged to sit at my desk and create again.  It also does help to have Wi-Fi (hehe - I love camping with city conveniences!) and to see all your wonderful work!  Once again you wowed us and a bunch of fellow non-crafty campers with your amazing talents.

A huge shout-out of thanks goes out to Stamping Boutique for their awesome sponsorship.  We do enjoy working with those fabulous digi-images!  The lucky winner of a $25 gift certificate to Stamping Boutique goes to:

Card of the Week

I loved this card the minute I laid eyes on it.  The combination of polka dots, large and small are divine.   I love how the effect is not overly contrasting but rather subtle and deliberate.  The cream label in the center has the perfect amount of embellishment to make it stand out in it's simplicity.  How about those darling buttons as balloons!  To finish this beauty off, Paulina wrapped it up with a delicious chocolate bow!
Paulina's blog is full of wonderful surprises too.  Take some time out of your day and visit

Paulina please email me your deets so I can get your prize off to you :)

Fab 5!

Enjoy this wonderful day and make sure you take a little time for yourself to get down 'n crafty!  Tomorrow Laura brings you a fab sketch and a brand new sponsor from a company that many of you LOVE.
