Fragile Beauty

Hello! I didn't have much time in my craft room last week and I was dying to use some of these Sugar Nellie Country Cousin images that I got in the mail(Thanks Ink!). I see another Sugar Nellie order in my future! I also finally got to play with my new Impressabilities from Spellbinders, Love their stuff! After running the impressabilities thru the bug I took my ink spot and ran it over the cardstock to add some color and make everything really pop. I used my Sakura Stardust pen on the butterflies wings.

All Star

This card is for the Taylored Expressions cupcake challenge and for the color challenge on SCS. This past Friday was Taylor's Birthday, Happy Birthday Taylor!! I used my Penny Black Field of Dreams stamp. I made my own baseball buttons with plain white buttons and a Bic Mark-it permanent marker. I think they turned out ok. The stars are Ka Jinker Jems. I found them clearanced at AC Moore's last year, they were over with the T-shirts. I figured they'd work on cards too so I picked them up. They only have one hole in the middle so I added a brad in the center. I'm wondering if I should have did 3 baseballs and then just one star?? Oh well, maybe on the next one! Thanks for stopping by!

Today's card was made using the Limelight Sketch and product challenge. We were to use rhinestones/bling,I used Kaiser pearls(hope that was ok!). The pink layer was embossed with a sizzix folder, I added to pearls to the flower centers that were showing. That's a different way to use the pearls I guess but I like how it turned out. I LOVE Penny Black stamps!I don't own this stamp and I'm not sure of the name of it.

Crocheted Butterfly

I'm so excited about this card! I was talking with some of my friends over on the SCS and they knew I crocheted flowers. I made this flower pot card for my Mom for Mother's day. She loved it and said I was going to make her cry. Anyway they started showing me different things to try to make and one of them was butterflies! So this morning on the ride to church I was playing around and came up with this butterfly! I remembered the Mojo Monday sketch this week had a butterfly on it so that is what I used to make my card! It also fits the 2RedBananas challenge this week which was to use 3 different Dp's on 1 card! Which I think is a first for me. I'm so pleased with how this card came out! I might have to keep this one! Does anyone else ever have a card they make that they just can't bare to part with?? I don't have many but I think this one will be a keeper! I think I may also start selling some of my crocheted butterflies and flowers! If your interested keep checking back for updates.

Pretty Petals

Todays card is for the 2RedBananas Challenge. This week we were to use ribbon! Love ribbon. I wasn't sure about my color combo but it's growing on me.
