Happy Friday! :)

Morning! Yes, don't fall off your chair... I'm posting on a Friday AM! :) I just had to share this cutie! I love the black, white and pink colors together. The sets used are SU! Sincere Salutations and retired Sale-a-Bration set Yummy. I added Stitching around my DP's which are from Doodlebug Design. The butterfly is from SU! which is my "NEW and MOST LOVED" die... very much enjoying it! For the final touch I adding silver 1/2 pearls from Michael's.
Any big weekend plans? For me, it will be catching up since we have been running the past couple of weekends and to enjoy time in my "Craft Cave" to get creative! Thanks for the visit and so appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy day to you!

Happy Spring!!!

Hi Everyone!!!! Sorry for the long span on not posting... and for the kind e-mails to see if I'm OK. Yes, I'm doing great!! In February I started a new job and truly enjoy it! I'm trying to find a balance with home and work, and didn't have much luck the past two weeks! From the little things that had to be done, work, and a few unexpected weekend ventures it's been busy. But, who isn't! So I'm alive and kicking! All is well and Saturday evening I finally STAMPED!!! (I told my hubby if there is no emergency "I'll be LOCKED in my craft cave!!"... ha!)
Now the card... with spring staring this weekend, I figured a butterfly card would be perfect. I received my SU! Beautiful Butterflies die a few weeks ago and it was screaming for some LOVE! With picking out my DP's first I worked my colors and layout from that point. SU! River Rock, Real Red and Whisper White choice of colors, Swiss Dots embossing, sentiment is by Stampendous and DP's by Cosmo Cricket and Pebbles Inc. The cluster of buttons was a fun add-on!!

I plan to keep posting a couple times a week, but time will tell! I have lots of comments to follow-up on and I promise I will!! You are my inspiration... SMILES!

Celebrate YOU!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!! Well, spring is on my mind and this is what I came up with today. I decided to use butterflies, SU! "Springy" colors, and I made a knot in the ribbon for something different! The layout I followed is on page 64 in the new "Stamp It" magazine. I changed it up a bit, and LOVE the cards in this years issue! I hope you enjoy... :)
Yes, I did a bit of sewing on my card! I had to do it twice as the first time it was BAD... need I say more? Ha... Any big weekend plans? I'm catching up around the house, and hubby is enjoying the outdoors. I'm getting into the spring cleaning mode, and plan to venture on cleaning our bedroom closets... major overhaul and long over due! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping in!!

BIG Smiles...
