Butterfly Kisses

Hi everyone!   After spending the day sick in bed, I finally felt well enough to have a bowl of soup which I managed to keep down, thankfully!  The boys spent the afternoon at a friends house, as I was in no shape to look after them.  My husband was working and could not get away, so I had to fend for myself.   I must say I wished someone would have been here to look out for me, like I do for everyone when they’re sick!  Oh, well enough of the poor me stuff…   I’m sure I’ll be better tomorrow, as I was feeling well enough by this evening.  I even managed to finish off this card I started yesterday. I think this digi image from Squigglefly is just so precious, don’t you?  Angela Donato is the artist behind this image called “Hugs”, and you can find it HERE. I used lilac cardstock for the mat and base.  I cannot say what the dp is as it was a gift from Rosana, my sweet blogging friend! …

On the Wings of a Butterfly

This week’s Crafty Creations challenge is WHITE PLUS ONE COLOR.   I decided on  blue and white and used a layer of translucent vellum embossed with my cuttlebug.   The edge is punched with a Martha Stewart daisy punch.   The butterflies are cut with my Cricut and the HOME DECOR cartridge.  I cut two layers, one from the dp and another from light cardboard to create the die cut.  I added two tiny blue pearls on each, and popped them up on foam dimensional tape.   I glued the vellum discreetly under the butterflies and at the corner that is tucked into a slit in the base blue layer dp. Papers: Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage, Vellum Well,  I said I’d be back to talk about camp which was truly exhausting and I must admit, not much of a vacation for us adults!  Our boys enjoyed it and I’m glad they did.  Hopefully they will retain some good memories as I have of my childhood camping experiences.  I have so much more respect for my parents and what …

Frosted Window Technique

I hope all you Mom’s out there are having a great day!! My boys brought me breakfast in bed!  Their Daddy had made fresh strawberry pancakes, coffee and orange juice  and they brought it to me with big grins after letting me sleep in until 10am!  I got some sweet cards and kisses too! I am getting some “quiet time” to myself now and thought I’d post the card I made last night… I was inspired to make this after visiting Allee’s gallery.  She is the reigning queen for the Queen for the Day game on SCS.  If you would like to join in on the fun and games and honor Lynn as QFTD08 the SCS forum link is HERE. I used this “frosted window” technique that I first heard of at Toy’s Haven.  Holly came up with this technique and made a gorgeous floral card for the technique challenge she made it for,  so be sure to have a look! Here’s what I did (slightly different from Holly’s, because I used two different stamps …
