Hi friends!  I have a bright and cheery card to share with you on this cold, blustery day!  I totally thought we woke up to snow but it was just some serious frost.  No snow this year although it definitely feels cold enough for it!

Yellow is definitely a favorite color of mine right now.  Maybe I'm missing the sun...just a little?  I shared the stenciling technique that I used on this card on the Spellbinders Blog yesterday.  There is a full tutorial on how I put it all together. And, CARDS Magazine shared this card on their Facebook page yesterday.  That was a fun surprise!

Speaking of surprises, I know Christmas is over but I was excited to get this tag back in the mail with my copies of Create: Holidays from Northridge Media.  I had totally forgot that it was even being published so that was a super treat for me!  Now, I could save this for next year....or turn into another thank you card.  Ha!  I still have more of those I need to write from Christmas. 

Another exciting box that arrived yesterday was my first ever Studio Calico kit.  *swoon*  I just might be hooked.  To say I was impressed is a complete understatement.  I can't wait to dive into it! There are a few blues that I'm anxious to try and create with.  Blue is the one color that I probably use the least in my paper crafting but I want to stretch myself.  How about you?  Do you have a color that you don't use much?  

Other than that, my scraproom is adorned with projects that I can't share until after CHA...which is just a few short weeks away!  But, the Spellbinders Blog Frenzy starts tomorrow and you will get a peak at so many great new products before the show even opens.  Oh my.  You will be so inspired!

See ya then!

Stunning projects! Colors I don't use much of? I would say purple. I think because I have those really harsh purples in my stash. Everything looks like it belongs at the British Royal Palace. The others are mixed with brights that I feel like I am in the middle of Dubai. Hehe. I need help with Purple!

Gorgeous card Julie. Amazing tag too. I don't think I have seen that one. Congrats on the pub.

I don't use pink very much...and I use blue a ton! lol
