Good Morning Folks!

I hope you are having a nice week!  The weather here is finally getting warmer and we have gone a month with no snow!!  WOOO HOOO!  Seriously this winter has been biter, bitter cold and snowy so I am glad that we are seeing spring! Well I have a have card fro you today!  This card was one we made at my club last weekend.  I got the idea from Pintrest and the original was done by Anne Marie Hile I changed the colors but I loved the layout so I kept that intact!  Thanks Pintrest and Anne Marie for the inspiration.

I wanted a happy and springtime card and this fit the bill perfectly!  It's hard to see in the picture but the butterflies are triple layered, the very bottom later is a different color than the middle later.

Here are the details for this card:
Paper: Not Quite Navy, Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo, Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Gingham Garden DSP
Ink: Island Indigo
Stamp(s): Simply Sketched (Hostess Set)
Accessories:  Big Shot, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Rhinestone Basic Jews and Dimensionals.

This card was fun to put together and is so pretty.  My club members all seemed to like it!  The scallop border punch is on the retired list so if you see it as a much have order soon!!!  Remember that Stampin' Up is offering free regular shipping through Friday April 25th so hurry and take advantage of this great deal!!

Have a great Wednesday!

Back Again!!!

Good Morning Folks!!

I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Easter!  We had a lovely weekend!  Both days full of family and fun (though my hubby may say differently, since he had to do lots of work).  I have been missing for a while and I apologize.  Work, life and school have really been my focus for a while.  I am about 5 weeks from finishing my Master's degree and that has really taken a lot of my focus that I would normally demote to creating.  I am so close to done I can taste it, all that is left is the final class capstone project which is a lot of work but I am feeling pretty good about it (today at least, ask me again 4 weeks from now and I may have a different answer)!  However I have been really missing my blogging and sharing with you all!!  I apologize and you have my word I am going to post at least once a week for the next 5 weeks and then I hope to get more frequent after that!  Hang in there with me, please, please!   I have a few craft shows coming up so I will stay busy creating but I have plenty to share!  I figure I would jump back in slowly, no card today, but since Stampin' UP announced their retiring lists today I wanted to share them.
