A Verse I Needed For Today


Morning friends! Yep I am back today with another card. I bought spiral pack of scrapbook papers at a garage sale. These papers you use to journal on scrapbook pages. I use them on my cards since I don’t scrapbook a lot.

I loves the colors of this papers and after I stamped my verse I used a gold pen to fill in the dots around it. The hardest part of this card was making the bow. I don’t know why I find them so difficult to make!

Hello Rose


I think this might just be a record for me! Two posts in one week. Hopefully I can post more later this week as well.

This card is pretty simple to make. I did discover that I really need to write down what supplies I use for each card because by the time I come in the house I have totally forgotten the manufacturer of each item. I do know I bought Hello and the Rose stamps I bought at a stamp convention a few years ago. The punch I used on the bottom of the brown paper is by Martha Stewart.

So here are the challenges I am entering this card in:

1. The Shabby Tea Room - Week #210 - 'ANYTHING GOES'

2. That Craft Place - New Challenge - Flowers and/or Mothers Day

The Orange Butterfly



Afternoon friends! Here is something I create for a birthday girl I know.

I stamped the butterfly with black Memento ink and colored it with an orange Copic marker. After I cut it out I die cut several of these branches. The DP is leftover from my Halloween cards and the orange matched beautifully with the butterfly. After I glued down the branches and the middle of the butterfly I add orange stickles to give the butterfly that extra bit of sparkle.

Here are the challenges I am entering this card in:

2. Glitter and Sparkle Challenge 69
