Trying something NEW . . .

Happy Weekend Everyone!
We are expecting another 3-6" of snow here in Akron, OH 
so I'm going to stay in, stay warm and get creative!  
Earlier this week I saw a gorgeous card designed by Cathrine Sandvik, one of my new DT team mates at Cardabilities.  She was kind enough to share a photo tutorial, so needless to say, I just HAD to give it a try.  (Thanks Cathrine for inspiration!)

Now as you will see if you click on Cathrine's
card, mine isn't nearly as fancy as hers ... but still unique and beautiful I think!

Some challenge's I'd like to share in are:
Fussy and Fancy Challenge - Tic Tac Toe (Sentiment, Ribbon, Lace)
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge - Things with Wings
As You Like It Challenge - CAS or Fussy (and why)  I am a vintage, lots of layers lover at heart.  It just makes me happy!  I struggle with CAS ... just not enough do-dads for me!! LOL
Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Black n White
Simply Create Too #79 - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I hope you are having a wonderful (warm) weekend!
I have several DT creations to get done so I'd better get to work!  LOL!
