January Papertrey Blog Hop Challenge

I am here with a card for Papertrey Ink's January Blog Hop Challenge.  Here are the challenge requirements:

This month, in honor of the New Year, we are challenging you to pick your favorite project from 2011 and share it with all of us. To take it a step further, you are challenged to create a second card that is inspired by the favorite project you select. Your new version of an old favorite could carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets. We look forward to seeing your best creations from 2011, as well as your first projects from 2012!

 My favorite project from 2011 was not a card, but the tag I made for Susan's Sewing themed tag swap. (You can find a link to the original project here.) 

Below is a card a made using the Sewing Tags as my inspiration. Please let me know what you think! Don't you love the "Absolutely Fabulous" stamp from Papertrey Ink?

Winter Wonderland Tag Swap

I participated in the January tag swap co-hosted by Susan Day (YouTube: Iowa2308) and Jil Lebel (YouTube: Stampyra). The theme for the tag swap was a shabby chic "Winter Wonderland" and we were to use blue, silver and white. A few years ago I spent a December weekend in New York City with 6 wonderful friends. We had such a great time that I knew I had to incorporate the city into my own winter wonderland. THere was a lot of trial and error with the tags I created. They were not exactly what I had envisioned and turned out a bit less shabby chic than I had intended, but I am happy with the results.

Thanks for stopping by! Please let me know what you think!
