Seasons Giving hop year 3!

Welcome to year THREE of the Seasons Givings Hop!

I have to say, I haven't been the best at posting on here, but have been creating almost daily still!  Work keeps me pretty busy sometimes, and it can't always be shared on here.  My goal this year is to scrapbook more for me, something I can share.  Thanks for putting up with my lack of consistent posts.  :)


I have a $25 pottery barn gift card and some other crafty items to share as well- inks, embellishments, papers, etc.  I will post my winner on the 5th, along with some other crafty related news!

I don't usually re share cards, but here's a few of my faves from the year- it's throwback thursday right? ;)

I love this one for it's bright colors.   I miss being on a dt for a stamp company, I don't get enough stamping time in any more!!
using adhesives for glittered stripes, a fave technique of mine.
simple thank you's, can't have enough of them!
watercoloring, need to make more time for this!
I love the chevrons, and the colors on this one.
A fave holiday color combo!

This last one was on the cover of magazine this last summer that went out of business, and I forgot to share.  I so hope something comes back to replace all of the mags we have lost this year!

Here's to a HAPPY and (most importantly) HEALTHY New Year!
enjoy! Pin It Now!

Great Cards! Love the Butterfly Card at the end! I REALLY hope there will be some new papercrafting mags to replace all we have lost these past few years, so sad! I subscribe to Cardmaking & Papercrafts (UK mag) but they have a US subscription (we only get 6 issues a year, every other month unlike the 12 issues UK receives) but hey it's nice to get a Papercrafting magazine! They have an office now in US so the annual subscription is reasonably priced. Thanks so much for the giveaway!
