Muse Challenge #51 and Merry Monday #92 and Festive Friday #23

Happy Friday and
Happy Birthday Muse!


Jackie Rockwell (creator) is our Muse for this anniversary challenge with this gorgeous card for our inspiration. I am also submitting to this week's Merry Monday Challenge which was to use Red, Vanilla, Kraft and Chocolate with ribbon and to Festive Friday because I was inspired by the photo of the red barn and nature so pulling out Lawn Fawn's Winter Sparrows seemed fitting.

This is so gorgeous, Tracey. And, I love how this is what you did for Muse. I've been a bit stuck with that one, but I think that I was just taking too narrow of a view.

This is just darling. It seems very doable (except for possibly the coloring)mass producing cards around the holiday. I could also see switching up the characters and using it for other occasions. Thanks for the inspiration!
