A Rainbow of Thanks...

Hi Ya!

So how did the first day of the New Year treat you?  I am feeling much better, so I worked on cleaning up, catching up, and doing a ton of laundry after our guest left.  We also went ahead and took down our outside decorations since it was a warm 57 degrees today!  I even sorted through some things for Goodwill.  So, I treated myself to a little crafty time tonight.

I have a card today inspired by the latest Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.
The inspiration photo was so fun that I had to play along. 
I inked up Thanks from my NEW Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler and cut the sleighs with my Cricut Winter Woodland Cartridge


The cards entirety was created using scraps so I am playing along with Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge 1.  She is taking over for Jules this year.

I am also playing along with Wee Memories Challenge "New". I played with my new stamps from Paper Smooches!
NEW
Have a wonderful week!

This is so CUTE, Tammy! LOVE how you cut out the sleighs! I thought they were stamped at first! LOVE the buttons in the photo, too because it really framed the card well! Happy New Year my sweet blog friend! And Sorry, 57 doesn't sound very warm to me!

This is wonderful! I love the rainbow look. Are there any colours you don't have? You always do such fabulous work with the colour challenges!
I could do with some of that warmer weather. It was -24 with the wind today!
