Come Fly With Me.... Challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters.....

Good morning everyone and welcome to my blog this morning.  I'm here this morning to share a card I made to enter the challenge at the Sisterhood of Crafters.  They have a design team call going on there and today is the last day to add your name to their list.  I decided I would try out for this team as I am looking for a team where I only have to make two projects a month.  Summer is coming and it gets a little crazy at my house with all the  yard and garden work this time of year.   So, if I should make the team, it would be a perfect fit for me.
Keep your fingers crossed for me!

First off I apologize for the seems to be a little off balance, but then again I'm sort of off balance this morning.  We sort of go together.  I am continuing to try and use up some of my hoard and when I pulled out this paper it said 2011.  How's that for getting a little age on it?  I decided it was time to cut into it and so here it is doing the heavy lifting on my card.  It is a Bo-Bunny paper called Gabrielle from 2011.  I just love the pretty shades of green and peach and muted browns.  I fussy cut a little butterfly to put over the one printed on the paper and used a bit of glitter on the flowers and leaves, as well as the body of the little butterfly.  This is a quick and easy card with no razzle dazzle but I think it is quite elegant.

OK, that does it for me this morning.  I have some blogs to visit this morning so I'm off to do that.  It's raining here and the temperature is dropping...winter is trying to rear it's ugly head again.  There are pear trees in bloom and I'm hoping it doesn't get below freezing.  I noticed yesterday my red bud trees are blooming and the maple trees are leafing out.  Also my dogwood trees are showing little green flowers.  They should be in full bloom by Easter in all their glory!  I just love Spring!

Morning! Your card is LOVELY ... I even clicked for a closer look! I love the dimension you always achieve on your creations! So glad you have 'added your name to the DT Call list'! As far as the weather, the only sign of Spring I've seen so far is one crocus in bloom and my daffodils trying to bloom. Of course since it's going to be in the teens at night this week that's not going to help!! I CAN'T wait to see the trees come into bloom ... will surely help lift my spirits! Anyways ... Thanks so much for joining us at The Sisterhood’s ‘Come Fly With Me’ challenge and please come back again soon!

That really is some gorgeous paper! It looks like something I would hoard when, really, it looks so gorgeous made into a card. A job well done, Glenda! Twice a month sounds like a good schedule, especially in the summertime. Good luck!
