I'm Yours


Time for a new challenge at Time Out! Challenge #230 starts today and runs through February 1st. It's an Inspired By Words Challenge where the words are: "The single most important thing I've ever done with my life is to fall in love with you." ~ Beth Pearson - This is Us. That was a tv show so near and dear to my heart. 

We welcome Julia Aston of Create With Me and winner of Time Out Challenge #227 as our Guest Designer.

I am so excited to share that we have a new sponsor - AALL & CreateFrom our Sponsor's Eshop: "Discover AALL & Create’s range of exclusive products, as featured on Create and Craft TV! Our product range is developed by an international team of artists and are designed to be used in many different kinds of artwork and project, including mixed media, scrapbooking, card-making and more. so get them while you can and spread the word!"

I am in love with AALL & Create's products, and have used two in my card. If you are familiar with my work, you will know that this is pretty far out of my comfort zone. I LOVE the way the stamps and stencil I chose that were so generously gifted by our sponsor, made me think outside the box.  My card is a big twist on our words! The series of "Dee" stamps and sentiments is hilarious. Check the spaghetti strap on Dee's dress! I made this with my Valentine in mind, and I giggled a few times as I was making it.

Please head on over to the Time Out Challenge Blog to see the wonderful creations that the Design Team came up with to inspire you. Come play with us!

As gorgeous [and sexy] as Dee is, it's that sentiment that had me smiling big time, Stephanie! You've captured my thoughts on the subject so well. Absolutely fantastic!

Stephanie, I just had to stop in and say how this card started my day off with a smile, it's hilarious (partly because after 34 years it's so true!) You did a fantastic job creating the mixed media background, wonderful card.
