The Winter Blues challenge

Are you as tired of winter as I am? The snow can melt any day now and I would be a happy camper!
We've had ONE day with temperatures above freezing in three weeks. 
One day. 
And the temp was 33° F. 

In honor of the winter blues, Casual Friday Stamps is hosting it's FIRST EVER CHALLENGE!

Use any CFS stamp or Fri-Die set and the color blue and let your mojo fly!
Any style from CAS to Layer-licious is welcome, as long as your project is new.
The challenge will end at 11:59 pm on February 14th.

The prize is pretty awesome...the winner will be a Guest Designer for one of CFS's upcoming releases, which of course means you will receive something yummy that hasn't been seen before, and have your project featured on the store blog during sneak peek week!

I couldn't resist focusing on the "blues" aspect of winter. SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) is a very real thing when you live with winter for 6 months out of the year. But things always get better because spring arrives eventually :)
 I used Butterbows and Breathe and the large Bubble Label Fri-Die on my blue card.

Head on over to the CFS blog and link up your Winter Blues project! 
Be sure to check out the awesome cards the DT has posted for your inspiration as well.

Thanks for stopping by,

Such a great idea to make the rainbow go ACROSS the arc instead of top to bottom! Would have never thought of that. This turned out so well, Dana : )

I'm over the rainbow for this butterfly card. Such a pretty way to beat the winter blues. Adding it to my cart. :)
