Blue Butterfly.....

Good morning everyone.  We are having lots of rain here this morning after having thunderstorms overnight.  Spring is here!  Here we are at Monday and starting a brand new week and I'm here to share with  you a card I made using some pretty paper and a Heartfelt Creations die.  (HCD1 713  Decorative Lace Border Die).  I love this die and use it a lot of different ways.  Here I have just the edges peeping out on the edges of my card face.


I cut out one of the butterflies on the pretty paper and used Wink of Stella to give it some shine and I added color to the flowers using Ranger Distress Ink.  Now my card is ready to go.
 
That's all for me this morning.  Hope you have a good day and that you remember to take a moment just for you and "Breathe"!

WOYWW # 306

Good morning everyone and welcome to my corner of the world.  I'm showing you  my work space this morning through Julia Dunnit's blog hop.  Each Wednesday we photograph our work space and then link up to Julia's blog and then we can visit each other.  It's quite addicting and I find if I have to miss it for any reason, I feel like the best part of my Wednesday has slipped away.


This is all I can show you this morning.  I've started a new mini-album and will disclose it at a later date.  I've been making flowers for the front cover as well as applying lace and bling.  In the lower right hand corner you can see my Tim Holtz Sprocket Gears.  My new Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch and some lace and flat back pearls.  It looks almost like it has been staged but I must keep it fairly clear as I work on the album here.  I made Heartfelt Creations flowers to go on the cover as well.  Sorry to be a tease but I will do a big reveal when the album is finished.  I'm following the Shellie Geigle videos on YouTube and she is such a wonderful teacher I can't seem to stop singing her praises.  Can you tell I'm hooked?

My post directly below this one shows the first mini I did and it is rather raw but I was just learning and made several mistakes.  I'm hoping this one will be better and that I can give it as a gift.

OK, that's it for me.  I'm off to visit as many of your blogs as I can.  Have a wonderful Wednesday and a Happy WOYWW!

My Mini-Album

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Monday.  I decided to go ahead and share with you my mini-album made with Heartfelt Creations papers, stamps and dies.  This is my first effort using the Shellie Giegle method so please be kind!









I also did my first video but I'm not sure if it will work or not.  I playing in the dark here as this is my first Youtube video.


Well that's all for me this morning.  Hope you get to do something you love today!

April Showers.....

Good morning everyone! It's time once again for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!  I'm so excited to be here this morning as this is my very first challenge with this design team!

Today's challenge is hosted by Terri and it is Anything To Do With Rain.... raindrops, raincoat, umbrella, rain boots, etc.


My card has a umbrella done with Parchment Craft and colored on the back with markers.  I tied a little bow to grace the handle and made flowers and leaves to match my umbrella. The little poem is printed from the Internet onto my card stock.

Now get busy and make your creation and share with us at The Sisterhood. You can also check out what the other designers are sharing as well!  I'm sure you will be inspired!

WOYWW #305

Good morning!  Welcome and come on in and sit a spell!  I'm here sharing a bit of my world this morning in the What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #305. This blog hop is hosted by Julia and she has all the rules and regulations listed at the top of her blog.  So why don't you get a nice cup of coffee or tea or whatever your beverage of choice is and come along with me and visit as many desks as you can!

There isn't much going on here lately.  I've been outside every day the weather has been good digging in the dirt.  Spring brings lots of challenges for an old lady living alone.  It's almost time to start my garden and I'm already dreaming of the wonderful veggies it will produce!


Here in East Tennessee the Redbuds are in full bloom.  They are the first trees to bloom along with the Bradford Pear, and then comes the Dogwood.  The Dogwoods are always in bloom for Easter but this year some of my trees were a little late.  Some are in full bloom and some are still thinking about it.  I learned long ago not to question Mother Nature.

Well that's it for me this morning. I'm off to visit as many of my blog buddies as I can.  Have a great day and take a moment to "Breathe"!
