My last Artful Inkables post Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

The new Artful Inkables Design Team takes over on March 15, so this will be my last 'official' post.  Congratulations to the ladies on the new team, and farewell to the rest of us!  I so appreciate Kristin's confidence in me.  This was my first design team stint, and it was so much fun!  I hope the rest of you throw your hat in the ring and give it a try....there are a lot of DT calls out there!

I used the super-cute stamp set, Any Birdy Home? yet again....I can't seem to put it down.  The curvy paper is from CTMH's special "Felicity", as is the paper used to paper-piece the bird house.  I used my second-favorite Nestabilities, Labels FourLabels Five is currently my favorite, but I suspect that will change when I pick up some of the newer die templates.

I kept my nasty coloring to a minimum - ha.  But good news - there is hope!  I am going to be able to take a Copic certification course in April after the Spellbinders(TM) Design Team retreat.  How cool is that!  Lord knows I need it.  Just something else to get my stomach tied up in knots - tee hee!

Are you still freezing?  We are.  Good grief!  We have had a high of 60 here in Florida far too many days lately.  Even the kitties are sleeping with their noses buried in their little paws.  Brrrrr! 

I'll be back to show you the card I created for the Humble Artists' swap, and a story about its journey as a snow angel.

Girl, if it were 60 degrees in Minnesota, we'd be running around in shorts and t-shirts. It's currently 29 degrees, and I'm sitting here with the window wide open. Yea, I'm wearing a sweatshirt, but the fresh air feels so good! I'll agree, though. Sixty is too cool for Florida.

Your card is gorgeous! Love the birdhouse. Cool that you're going to take the Copic certification class. I'm sure you'll pick it up in no time.

Enjoy your day!!

Love your card. That is so neat how you stamped the house one B&T. The flowers are darling. I really love the cold weather, but my thyroid has started acting up and now I can't get warm. Do you think Kathi realizes that 60 here is like 29 there? I would love to take another copics class. Wasn't too crazy about the first one. It usually takes me two or three tries to get something right. Speaking of two or three tries. Michelle Zindorf should be coming back to Jax in 2011. Well worth the 2 hour drive.

Deb you know how much I will miss you on the team! I am thrilled that I got to know you over this term and I can't wait to see what you come up with next! I know it will be wonderful, today's card only proves that! Best of luck and keep creating!

Hi Deb,
60. What I would do for 60.
Then again, I am the same girl who will be complaining in a few months about the excessive heat. ;)
By the way, great card. I like how you anchored the house on the Nestie label. It looks really cool. I have that set and rarely use it anymore. I might have to give it a whack again.

Paper Crafts Go-to-Gal
