CCC #024 February 14 Tags challenge: Use a Weather Element

Happy Valentine's Day All!

This month's tag challenge at
 is to use a weather element.
Well now. 
I was all ready to go in a different direction. 
I started with a deep dark blue ink, salt, and water to create a snowy card. 
The snow was driving me crazy. 
Don't get me wrong, I love snow. 
I just wanted a bit of sunshine. 

The afternoon sun in through my dining room window makes it the best place in my whole house to sit and drink coffee. 
I knew then what I wanted to do with my tag.

What surprises me the most about this Paper Pumpkin stamp set is how much I like and use it. To be honest, I wasn't a fan of the intro kit, until I had my paws on it. 

Don't forget that there's a chance to win the Watercolor Happy stamp set from Stampin' Up! 
Head on over and enter all three challenges to get you entries!

Check out the other Catherine and Cathy Create challenges for this month, both due February 28, 2014:

Cards Challenge: Gold-i-licious

CCC #022: February 2014 ChallengeHearts-a-Flutter

 CHALLENGE: "Hearts-a-Flutter"

February is heart month, with Valentine’s and all.
I never was much for the day, and while I am spoiled by my hubby (on a regular basis), we don’t make a big fuss of it.

For the Monthly challenge at
I used three different stamp sets to create my scrapbook layout of my recent birthday girl (turned 7), when she was 3.

Her looks have changed as she’s become a big girl, but the spunky personality is still there.

Want to win some Stampin’ Up?
The "Happy Watercolor" set is this month's prize!!!
I want it!!!!!
