#UseItThursday – Post #3 Valentine’s Day

January Flash Sale!

FLASH SALE on my Close To My Heart site – click HERE!

It is #UseItThursday!
The day when we grab from our stashes and make some new mashes or #mashesfromstashes .

These silly and humble French chateau cards are doodles made on my 1″ strip scraps!
Maybe you are in the market for your own real French chateau? Here is a link to the 300 little homes for sale!
Can you imagine having one of these for a scrapbook retreat house?

You may notice the filigree edgings?
Yes, it is the Close To My Heart January Stamp of the Month Bloom and Grow!


This card developed all on its own. There was no diagram or sketch, but I really like how it turned out.
Its inspiration is based on what I had on my desk.
Thankfully, the cat was in the other room so I could access my desk!
The #UseItThursday stash piece is the striped patterned paper and silver foil.

Back to the French Chateau! Why not use your doodles, toodles?

I think this could be a very nice Valentine for a friend, especially a French friend who owns a chateau! Know any? I don’t!

Did you hear I was chosen for an entry to the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge? I was! Always so FUNN to winn!
Thank you, Color My Heart Dare Challenge aficionados.
So, I thought I’d play again today!
This challenge’s colors are Bashful, Charcoal, and Glacier.

I hope you have enjoyed my snow day and have been inspired to clear the cat off your desk and get crafty!

Have a FUNN day!
