Winter Sprite with Stickers

The Ways To Use It Challenge today was to use stickers. The whole idea was to create an easy and fast card. HAH!!! Not so fast or easy. First of all, I gave all my stickers to my grands to play with, so I really had to hunt for something that could pass for a sticker. All I could find were these ..... and blue didn't seem to be in my plan today. I finally made a decision......not quick or easy, and this is what came out. I kept adding things, until I finally said, "enough!" I don't think this will be a card I will reproduce in my future, but at least it got rid of the few stickers I had remaining in my stash.

I leave today to take care of Nate and Sam (15 and 12) while parents work or go away. Then packing for our timeshare in NH from the 8th to the 15th. This will probably be my last upload for a long while, but I send you hugs, and will see you when we return.

Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #15

The DDIC today comes from this image ..... Pacifica Garden Gift Set. I thought this set was very pretty, with the gold and purple. Then I realized there was more pink, with some yellow and blue. This threw me for a loop. I had the hardest time making a decision. Would I go with the shape? Could I possibly get all the colors in?

So here's what I did. I made two cards. I thought I would pick the one I liked better, and upload it, and say, THERE! The problem was, they were so different I couldn't make a decision.
One uses the shape and combines the colors in a similar pattern. The other uses the theme of Pacific, which means peaceful and serene. So the upshot is, two postings. I couldn't decide. I guess it's up to you.
Please check out the rest of the team. Their blogs are in the left hand panel and you can highlight their names. If you join us in this challenge and upload to SCS, please put DDIC in your keywords.
