My Version of Love Goes Around and Around

I've used the Spiral Stencil in several different colors over the past 6 months or so.  I do like this in an orange to red gradation and I thought hearts are red and this would fit February.  A bit of Love goes a LONG way and this fits my mood.

Love is in the Air, even in my Scheduler Page

I used Hero Arts digital "Words of Love" as well as "Notes and Dates" to make my schedule for 2019.  I have January entered and February is just peeking out of my insert card.  I am very happy with this years schedule page.as I even used the Mood Board as part of my background.


You can see 2018's schedule attached on the other side of my 2019 schedule

The dark color is a gray, but this is a mood board, not a color board.  I couldn't tell for sure because the box looks navy blue to me.

Hero Arts Words of Love

The colors and pictures in this Mood Board make me think feminine and luxurious.  Maybe they do the same for you.  Whatever they mean or feel for you, make your project with this Mood Board in mind for the February A2Z Scrapbooking challenge.

        MOOD BOARD


Here is my interpretation of the Mood Board for today's post at A2Z Scrapbooking.  This card is also posted for inspiration for the Die Cut Divas' challenge of Love is in the Air.

Still Dreaming of Cold Weather?



I love this particular Morgan's Artworld image and really don't use it except in the winter season.  I don't think fur covered hoods go well with the high 90s to 100s in summer in California.  I wanted to focus on this gal's face and you can see her cheeks are still chafed by the cold outside

No photo description available.

Some Holiday Greenery Edge for You


I'm not really a flower person, but I do have to say, I really like the Hero Arts magnolia stamp and that it has a matching die. I made this a simple card so it could be used for just about any occasion. It looks quite striking in real life.

Hero Arts Christmas Mice Still a Favorite

I just had to make another card with my Christmas Mice because they are so just so darn cute.  I'll be ready with a good start on my Xmas cards for next year, won't I?  The sentiment "Holiday Treats for You" is perfect for a mouse eating a cookie.
