Play On Words

It's CARDS Challenge time at 
My Scrapbook Nook
This month we've been delighted with the new and popular
My Mind's Eye Indie Chic Ginger
It reminds me off an Indian Summer with the warm ocher, rust,
raspberry, olive green and neutral tones.

For my challenge this week, I've used the letters in the word 
to create a play-on-words, so to speak.  Players are to use one of these
words on the front of their cards:
I- Inspiration or Inspired
N- Neverending
G- Good Bye
E- Everlasting
R- Romantic or Romance

Here are my two examples:

I wanted to show two totally different looks using this Nook Kit.  
I even used the same doily cut-out on both cards: for the bottom card I just flipped
it over and used the reverse pattern; I built my card from there :)

Danni Reid, Jessy Christopher and I are the hosts of the CARDS forum
at The Nook.  Beginning this month, we've altered the way in which we award prizes.  
I think this will encourage more to play along with us as there are TWO 
GRAND PRIZES totaling $40 ($20 for Monday and Wednesday Cards Challenge Winners)
If you're interested, check out the details right -->HERE<--

And don't forget to sign-up to receive My Scrapbook Nook Kits!
They're always packed with the latest and greatest papers and embellishments

That's all from me today!
  I have a couple of projects to work on and then it's 
off to the parents' later on this afternoon for a cookout, swimming and then fireworks 
in town.  Hope all of my American friends have a HAPPY and SAFE

Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
