MTTC #500 Theme is Numbers DT inspiration card for 27 January 2023

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart's excited this week about 4 inches of snow coming, celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary, and reaching this #500 theme for My Time To Craft!!!

Oo-la-la!!! At MTTC, I've picked the first 2 themes of the year (welcome baby and snowman) as well as 'administratively' designated this #500 theme to be Numbers. I just couldn't imagine us not doing something celebratory for our 500th competition in blogland! 

It happens to have worked out that my/our 27th anniversary is on the 27th of January and that's also our launch date! Wow! Easy-peasy card idea for me! 

This card is ultra feminine but my husband will just place it on the piano so I might as well have something very pretty to look at! :)
