C4C118 Thanks....

Hello everyone!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend so far? The weather is super mild here and I know we'll be spending lots of time outside. Our sweet little Miriam finally learned to ride her bike and I know she'll be wanting to show everyone in the neighborhood :) !!!

Anyway, the *Crazies* are back with new challenges....so how about joining us over at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog ~ C4C118 ?!?! Joanne is our new host this month and she has challenged us to create some thing *NEW*...it can be a new technique, using some new goodies etc.



My card features some new Papertrey Ink goodies...yeah! I love that store!!! The main image is from a complimentary set that was included in my last shipment. It's called *A Big Thank You*. I inked it in Memento Black and cut it with a Circle Spellbinder Die. Couldn't resist adding a Doily behind it :) !!! The Burlap in the background is also new....I bought it on my last Archiver's Shopping Trip. Next I embellished my card with the new PTI Smokey Shadow Stitched Ribbon, matching Button, Silver Cord and Silver Pearls.

Please make sure to check out the rest of the *Crazies* for their  ideas ~ Frances, BarbaraCindyDawn, Jessie, Joanne, Joycelyn, LyndaMariaSilke K. and Vicki.

As always thank you so much for stopping by today! Wishing you a fabulous weekend,

                                                                        Hugs, ~Silke~ 

Here are a few more challenges I've added my card to:
Papertake Weekly ~ Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday #67 ~ Anything Goes
7 Kids College Fund #38 ~ Try Something New

This is beautiful Silke. It has been warmer here too, but not warm enough for a bike ride. I am kinda enjoying not having snow on the ground all winter. :)
