winter day...

Wednesday's usually mean my Jingle Belle's Day:)

This week the Jingle Belle's have teamed up with Betty Bee's Buzz!

The challenge is:


June is featured over on the JB blog.. Lauren is featured on the Betty Bee's Buzz...make sure you check them out!

Okay, evidently I wasn't really thinking when I made my project...

You know how you are sometimes determined to use something on a project?  Well, that's how I was...I 'needed' to use my new Wintertime goodies from Echo Park...I had to use this journaling card...is that considered a diecut?  Hmmm....gonna say that it is definitely a diecut.

Thought I'd share some lunchtime pictures that I took on my power walk:

I'm within walking distance from the Pike Place Market in Seattle...


Gotta love all the colors...


I'm certain that I've posted a version of this pic earlier but this is the very first Starbucks which is located within the Pike Place Market.


Okay, come on back tomorrow...I'll have some sneak peeks of my Gauche Alchemy project and some fantastic news:)

  11. Hi Amy, Love your card, the snowman is so cute! Yes I remember snow 2 years ago!!!!However, there is snow in the midwest. On Monday it was 93 here 66 in Nebraska and 36 in Chicago, so there are still people getting snow, who would believe. I wish I lived near that market. It reminds me of when we lived in Indonesia and the Pasars. That was my favorite outing on Monday morning, going to get fresh veggies, fish, and waiting for the chicken I picked to be dressed(or undressed). Thanks for the memories. Hope Wednesday is a great day for you!

  12. Amy, you rocked the challenge! This is terrific and you had me at "Echo Park." Thanks for the mention too; you are so sweet :)

  13. not only do i consider the journaling card a diecut (& what a BRILLIANT USE of it!) but that little snowflake is one, and i'd even call the felt circles which make up your snowman a variation on diecuts too, so you are COVERED missus!!! plus it's just such a downright ♥AWESOME♥ xmas card!!! LOVE THIS! :)
