We are at the start of the February Challenge at Incy Wincy Designs.  For this month, the theme is Valentines and/or In the Garden and our sponsor is Jan's Digi Stamps.

I have used an image from Jan's Digis called Bonnet Bouquet.

I also used digital papers from PixelScrapper.  Coloring is with copic markers. 

I followed a tutorial for an Envelope Pocket Frame Card but changed the envelope part.

Hope Your Day is Just Ducky

 This image is what our "Summer" seems to be about at the moment!  Parts of our country has had major flooding forcing many people from their homes and a large number of the summer festivals have been cancelled.  Where I live, we have dodged the worst of the weather but we still had thunderstorms today.

I have used a digital paper from PixelScrapper.  The image is from Pattie's Creations and the source of the sentiment is unknown.  I also added some mesh ribbon and some gems.

Hello Spring!

 Having the choice of four seasons for the Season Theme at Sheepski Designs, I opted for Spring as the weather here feels more like Spring than Summer.  It is warm but wet.

Cruising In To Wish You A Happy Day

 I don't create many masculine cards but this image spoke to me.  I paired it with a paper that has houses on it - as though the train is passing by the houses.

Have Fun In The Sun

 I have had a bit of a crafting day today as the weather was still not the greatest with rain off and on.  I am missing the summer sun and had to get my dose of summer through the image that I used on this card.

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Rosie's Studio.  The image is from The Paper Shelter and the sentiment is from Create with TLC.  Coloring is with copic markers.  I also added two strips of paper from a Kaisercraft paper pad and some shell embellishments.


 I started this card before I realized that the card I was creating for Beccy's Place January Challenge would also fit with the challenge at Carlin's Map Paradise.  It has been raining heavily for the past few days so I have caught up on most things  so this morning I decided to finish off this card:

I have used a digital paper from Beccy's Place.  The image and sentiment are also from Beccy's Place.  Coloring is with copic markers.   I didn't specifically set out to follow a particular card fold but I suspect that I pulled this one from my memory and it may be based on one of Beccy's tutorials.
