Now, it's Michele's time to sparkle and shine...      

Hello again!  I'm back this week for a few more of my favorite ways to use Winnie & Walter products ... so many ways, one day just wouldn't do! 

I seem to design "in the round"!  Does that make sense to any of you?  In other words, when an idea strikes, I set about putting it to paper ... sometimes, while creating the first, another design will come about - like with the positive and negative idea from last week. 

This week [besides those carrots] I've latched onto a few favorite colors, or color combos, and just let my Winnie & Walter products shine - with a bit of my own favorite touches thrown in - like texture*, and humor ... does anyone appreciate my sense of humor?  =|

Enter exhibit #1: Yes, black IS one of my favorite colors!

Hello Cutaway - adapted by simply turning

the die around, and partial die-cutting!

Pretty little leaves from Maggie's Roses... and a snippet for

the perfect placement of the perfect word - found
in the "Big, Bold and Happy" set.

Card #2:  Putting the accent on the happy green with another way to say hello:


Hi Cutaway - this time the positive cut, and perfect
words from The Big, the Bold and Seasons - welcome;
and The Big, the Bold and Extras - home, and the beautiful banner.

You had to know I planned ahead while cutting that hi - right?

Enter card #3:


In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet has a very, very special place in my heart.
Darling yellow roses - My Mom's favorite, and mine -
strategically placed, they do indeed 'dot the i.'

My final card is my way to say 'thank you' to Winnie & Walter for inviting me to share my creations using their fabulous products.   Also for their generous hearts, and continued support of all of us, and our love of paper-crafting.  I am pretty new to this blogging world, so I can't help but feel ever so special to be among those of you Winnie and Walter have shone their ever-lovin' spot-light on!

For you, Shay & Julie:


Another one of Lola's Blooms - this time in orange - another favorite color, and a remake of this card - I couldn't wait to make that cool square vase!
Hugs provided by The Big, the Bold and Friends Cutaways and Stamps.
LOve that brilliant hand-written font!

Thanks for hanging out with me today, and thanks always for all the love and sweet comments from you, my card-loving, card-making, fabulous friends!
