Happy New Year, Barb! Welcome back after your break...but it appears that you were quite busy all the same! My family time, like yours, was simply fabulous! Your cards: delights, all! Your little kitten in first card is darling; your skiing penguin, fantastic (especially love the interactive aspect!); your love rays, so pretty; and your snowflakes, a sparkly wintry wonderland!

Karren said...

Fabulous cards, Barb! The Hello is a genius way to use the colors in a color challenge and that cat is just too cute. The skiing penguin just cracks me up and your coloring is fantastic! Your stenciled and sparkle cards are just so beautiful.

Linda said...

Glad to hear you enjoyed your family time over the hols Barb - Christmas and NY just seemed to go by so quickly didn't they. Love your different cards today especially the gorgeous water coloured background on the last one. Here's to another fun crafty year:)

Neets B said...

Welcome back, Barb. And what a beautiful selection of cards. Loving the sweet kitty and the silhouette looks amazing with that background.
Re your comment about the MFT linen background stamp, I bought it a while ago from Amazon but it's no longer available so may be discontinued, although a few online stores have it so try a search. The cheesecloth one is similar but not the same. Hope this helps xx

I'm especially taken with the delicate snowflakes on that watercolour background ... such delicious shimmer! Hugs, Anita :)

Anne said...

What a stunning selection of cards Barb - love them all! I think your stamp and stencil combi for HLS is so clever, I had seen that as a shopping bag before, but of course now it is her carry on, or perhaps she is travelling light... either way I love it.
Thanks so much for joining us for the Happy Little Stampers Clean & Simple Challenge
