TCC #2, MUSE #52 and FM #121

Happy Groundhogs's Day!  Bah humbug!! I don't think many people around here are very happy about six more weeks of winter.  I don't really believe in all the hype but I am realistic.  I just hope it's not quite as bitterly cold as it has been.

On the upside, the cold and snow gave me a chance to spend time in my craft room and I have three cards for you today.  I don't usually show that many in one post but the deadlines are tomorrow.

First up: MUSE and this inspiration by Marion Vagg.

My brother's 65th birthday is next week so I made him this.  I was inspired by the chevron frame and the colorful element in the corner.

Next is The Card Concept.

This one had me stumped so I'm just under the wire with my Clean and Layered card.

The last one is for Freshly Made Sketches.

I know my proportions aren't right for the sketch but I wanted to use this NBUS stamp set.

I may have time to get another card finished before we head off to a Super Bowl party.  If you are a football fan, I hope you enjoy the game and the team you are rooting for wins.  Go Broncos!!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting.

  3. Wow, you've been busy! Love your birthday take on the Muse - although I think you're short a few candles! lol!
