i {heart} papers guest designer: rainy day & Season’s Givings Blog Hop Winner!

Hello and Happy Sunday!

Well, my holidays are wrapping up today.  I’m back to work tomorrow!  I’ve really enjoyed my time off and will be super busy at work, but it’s all good.

I’m back today with a post as the January Guest Designer at


For those of you that have been following me for a while know how much I adore color and patterns:

Greetings from Washington State!

This card is perfect for Washingtonians because we have such the reputation of rainfall.  Personally, I’ll take rain instead of snow any day.  I’ve lived here for a majority of my life and can’t imagine living anywhere else.

Can you believe that this entire card is made up of paper from:

Chickaniddy Crafts

Although, yes, it is chock full of “jolly good” stuff, don’t be deceived by the name, there is plenty in the paper pack that can be for non-holiday projects.  The 6×6 pad is available in the i {heart} papers shop, plus other Chickaniddy Crafts Collections.

Make sure you pop over to the Shop and the Blog for more inspiration!

    Love today's card, Amy! The mixture of papers is superb! I love that cute little image too. Kinda perfect for today's weather here… we had snow yesterday which transitioned to rain overnight. Ugh! So the snow is looking rather ugly at the moment.

  6. Polka dots are probably the greatest invention of womankind. And this card showcases those sweet papers to perfection! Such a lovely design.

  7. How sweet is this?! I adore your combination of patterns, and that little flashcard is adorable! So sad I missed your hop. I've been wanting that JBS stamp forever. I added it to my cart from the store and was quickly thereafter informed that it was discontinued. Sigh. Please let me know if you know where I can find another. Blessings!

  9. This is positively and absolutely my favorite card I've seen you make! Love all the different papers u used, without it seeming crowded. Felt happy with the girl walking in the rain. The paper pack u worked with is awesome. Hmmm, not good for my new 2013 budget. Lol.
