Butterflies to Beat the Winter Blues!

January is my worst month of the year. I know Bubba (my husband) may think every month has it's challenges, but really, January is a hard one to get through for me. I love winter weather. I walk outside in the coldest of temperatures and snowiest of days, but the clouds get to me. What does this have to do with today's card? Well, I love to design with bright colors under my sun lamp(s), and celebrate the bright side of life.

Stamps: Whimsical Words
Paper: Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Pack,Taken with Teal, Hugs Note, Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Taken with Teal
Accessories: Hugs Note, Big Shot, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Mini Glue Dots

One of my biggest issues with January is that I lose my creative mojo. What does any good stamper do? CASE. What's that? Copy And Share Everything! I cased Gretchen Barron, an amazing demonstrator and designer's layout. Check out her example here on her blog.

This is one of the cards at my last Stamp-a-Stack. To save time (and get a cute effect), we used the Hugs notes from the Occasions Mini Collection for the white layer. These are precut cards that can also be used as layers!

Happy Stamping!
