Monday Happenings - January 31

Happy Happy Monday Bloggers!

It's definitely winter in Texas!  Yesterday and  Saturday, we had temps in the 70's...so nice and beautiful.  Perfect to play outside.  Today it is overcast and 40's.  Tonight we'll be dropping into the 30's with rain, and that will turn into ice and snow tomorrow - temps in the LOW 20's.  They say, if you don't like the weather, wait a few minutes, it'll change.  That is so true here!

Monday also brings a new challenge at Paper Therapy!  This one was definitely a challenge, but I had so much fun!  I definitely embracing my inner vintage girly this week:

This week it is a technique challenge. Use a border punch not as a border but in a new/different way. Here are a few links to give you some ideas.

  3. Awesome card! Thanks for the links. Got to try that soon.
    Thanks to the Super Bowl we have been hearing the weather reports from the Dallas area. Doesn't sound like any fun at all. Hope it warms up for you soon.
