Good Morning Bloggers!
Brrrrr is it as cold at your house as it is at mine??
It's cold already (in the teens) and we're expected record breaking cold over the next few days. Bring on the Springtime! LOL!
Have you been over to the Crafty Secrets Blog lately?
Sandy is always sharing wonderful inspiration from the team with fabulous freebies sprinkled in here & there. Last week was one of those times when she shared a freebie for all to grab and create with. Be sure to check it out HERE.
Remember, Crafty Secrets has a monthly linky party the 1st Monday of every month! And, for just playing along (anything goes using Crafty Secrets products) you will get a $6 voucher and the chance to win a $50 gift voucher! January's Linky Party starts on Monday ... please come play along.
Anyways ... I've gotten a bit off track!
I grabbed this newest freebie and created a quick & easy step card.
I have a few unique fold card dies that I really need to start using more!
Like this step card die from Cheery Lynn Designs. It was the perfect backdrop for this fabulous calendar image which I've colored with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.. I have a few friends who are celebrating birthday's this month ... I think I'll turn this into a birthday card for one of them.
The 3d butterfly embellishments are K&Co and I thought they were the perfect compliment to the buttercup flowers on the image.
(Like I said ... come on Springtime! LOL!)
A few challenges to enter:

Well, that's it for me today!
We have friends coming over this evening so I'd better do a little light cleaning around the house. It's still Christmas here at the Pavlick house as we celebrate the 12 Days of Christmas. So that means, come next week I will be doing what most of you already have completed ... getting everything put away for another year!
Have a wonderful weekend ...
Stay warm (or cool ... depending on where you live) ...
Thanks so much for stopping by and as always . . .
