Wow, I have to say I’ve a busy few weeks since Christmas! Here in Central Oregon we did not go back to school until January 8th, so the first week was doing fun family things and taking my time putting away Christmas. This entire week has been packed full, I taught Monday through Thursday finishing a maternity leave for a friend in science then the last two days have been spent watching High School wrestling. For my loyal blog readers and new followers I thank you for your patience as real life has been too hectic to tend to my blog!
So the first of the announcements is the winners of my Seasons Giving blog hop prizes. I thankful for all of my new blog followers and those who now follow by email. Thank you!

All excellent goals to work towards, but remember that crafting is our hobby and it should bring us joy along the way! Now for the winners!

Besides announcing the winners of the blog hop I have a fun surprise to share with you as well! I was recently selected as a new Design Team Member for Quick Quotes.

Finally here is a little crafty inspiration!
I like playing with my layering stamps and trying out different color combinations! These sweet butterflies are from the Hero Arts CL867 Color Layering Butterflies & Frame Cuts. The butterflies are stamped in Memento Lulu Lavendaer, Grape Jelly, Elderberry, Angel Pink, Lilac Posies, Pear Tart and Bamboo Leaves. I added Versa Mark over the top and heat embossed with Iridescent embossing powder. The background is Crafter’s Workshop Mini Flutterby TCS 206s the and Fireworks Lilac Posies and Lulu Lavender. The sentiment and card edges use Elderberry Memento Luxe which is heat embossed with Iridescent embossing powder. Thanks so much for stopping by!
