Bird Is The Word - Time

This fortnight's challenge at Bird is the Word is to use the word TIME on your layout, card or OTP project as your title or part of your journaling...when you have your project complete, please link it up over on the right side of our blog and give credit back to Bird is the Word on your blog.  The design team will vote at the end of the challenge.  Five layouts will be chosen and the final winner will receive a prize kit from Tidbitz In Time.  Pop on over to our blog site and check out all the gorgeous creations from our talented Design Team for a bit of inspiration.

There is also a sketch designed by the talented Mary Thomas (which is optional) to get your creative juices flowing.

Celebrate The Good Times

As time is a bit limited for me with Christmas and our trip just around the corner,  I chose to make a quick and easy card using a MME 6x6 paper pad and some stamps also from MME.  The MME paper pads are gorgeous and fantastic for making cards... I'm totally addicted to them at the moment!!
