Pause, Dream, Enjoy Linky Party #1 ~ Balloons Midway Point

Good Morning!  Welcome to the first linky party for Pause, Dream, Enjoy, formerly known as Paper Playtime challenges.  We have moved this year and become a bi-weekly linky party.  We are actually half way through our challenge so you have one more week ~ up until Monday, January 20th at midnight EST ~ to enter your balloon project.

Here are the rules of the new linky parties:
1) Follow the theme
2) New or Past projects welcome 
(any type of crafting as long as it fits the current theme)
3) You may link up as many times as you'd like 
(as long as they are different projects)
4) Become a FOLLOWER of Pause Dream Enjoy

Easy, peasy correct?  Hope to see lots of my friends entering this new challenge.  We want it to become a success.

I have made a card for the next "official" holiday ~ Valentine's Day ~ truthfully one of my least favorite.  I see it as a made up holiday for the gain of the chocolate and flower industry.  Maybe because it is that I have never had a spectacular one and am always disappointed by my expectations.  If I have no expectations, maybe it will be a great day.  My card uses an assortment of stamps that I masked and made into one.  The snowman is from High Hopes and the balloon with hearts on it is from Crafter's Companion.

So, for those of you who visit regularly, let's just say that my scrapbook page count is 0.  My crafting mojo has taken a hike and I need to get it back, hence why it has been fourteen days (which is the longest time for a while) between posts.  I am a list maker so this week I am making a list of what I want to scrapbook and starting.  It will give me satisfaction to be able to cross each page off the list. 

Thanks for coming by.  Have a great Tuesday, my friends.
