What a cold week we've had here! Mother Nature sent us a good covering of snow yesterday, but then the sun came out today and did a pretty thorough job of melting most of it away. When it is cold and dreary out I find that to be the perfect excuse to snuggle in and scrapbook for a bit. With this in mind I saw there is a Heart 2 Heart Challenge for February titled: Favorite Recipe and that was a theme right up my alley!

My mother enjoys cooking, I enjoy cooking, our daughter-in-love enjoys cooking... and our sweet toddler granddaughter enjoys cooking, too! This sweet baby girl loves helping in the kitchen when "real" food is being prepared and during playtime she loves to "pretend" cook in her mini kitchen. This makes …

I have so many pretty Close To My Heart (CTMH) patterned paper scraps! When I finish a scrapbook page or a card I usually have some scraps left and find that I add them back into my stash because they are simply too pretty to throw away. If you are a paper crafter then I know you understand what I am talking about.

For today's card I decided to limit myself to only using scraps from my stash (except for the card base which is a larger piece of White Daisy cardstock). The patterned paper I ended up pulling out to use today is all CTMH paper, but some of it is discontinued. You will probably want to use whatever scraps you already have on hand. I got the inspiration for this card from Jacquie Paech at Sweet Paper Passion, but I changed it …

I had planned to do a Valentine's Day blog... showing some of the various cards I made for this holiday centered around love, but sadly I goofed up! I took the pictures, thought I had loaded them on my blog, and promptly deleted said pictures off my computer. I don't generally keep pictures of my cards longterm because who has enough computer memory for that!?! Sadly, the pictures didn't upload to my blog (and I have already mailed the cards) so now the only people who will be able to see this year's handcrafted Valentine's Day cards are the recipients of the cards themselves!
So, to have at least one "love themed" card up on my blog this month, I decided to participate in another Color Dare! This Color Dare is …

Let's do another Color Dare! This Color Dare is a tic-tac-toe style challenge, so I needed to pick three colors from the palate in either a row, column, or diagonal. Neutrals (white, cream, black, gray, kraft and brown) are free to use as well. I chose to use the Lemon, Mink, and Willow column.

Color Dare #327 Link
As I usually do, I started by gathering some supplies...
I chose my CTMH Lemon, Willow, and Mink inks.
I also pulled out 2 of my CTMH stamp sets to start.
The first thing I did was to stamp the sentiment piece on CTMH White Daisy cardstock in the Willow green. Then I wanted to make a "mottled" …

It seems as if I just posted an entry in a Color Dare and here I am again with a new one already! This was a particularly fun one (in my opinion) because the challenge is to use only black, white and a splash of ONE other color. No other neutrals allowed. So I chose to use CTMH Ruby red as my one other color to go with my black and white card.

BlackWhiteSplash #326
As we usually do, the first step is to gather supplies. The supplies were really easy on this on! I pulled together some black cardstock, white cardstock, and some decorative black & white papers from my CTMH patterned paper stash. I also chose some stamps out of t…
