Butterfly Lucy

Hi!  I made a card for Flutter By Wednesday's 200th and last challenge.  I'll miss the challenges! 

Here's the sketch for the last challenge.

I decided to go with CC Designs Butterfly Lucy.  Isn't she sweet?  I love the flower border too also from CC Designs.  I got the grass die even though I have one from MFT because this one is a bit shorter and fits the flower border nicely.

I added some glossy accents on her hair accessories and the dots on her dress.  No, she's not eating the butterfly like my husband had first thought.  Geez, I don't understand him sometimes.

I also used the little saying from CC Designs Spring Logos and stamped it onto a cloudy background.  The butterfly is from CC Designs Butterfly Border that I love. 

I'd also like to enter this into Paper Sundaes Challenge #118 -- Ribbon and Pearls, Stamp and Create April Challenge -- Spring, and Ribbon Carousel Challenge 50 -- Anything Goes.

I had a nice day today with my daughter.  We got her hair cut and styled straight which she just loves.  Usually her hair is a bit wavy.  We had lunch and did some shopping.  But now I'm feeling a bit lazy to do the usual house chores.  Oh, and I'm trying to finish reading the Hunger Games books.  I'm on Catching Fire but it's slow going for me.  I don't know how my daughter read all 3 books.  Reading makes me sleepy so every time I read a few pages, I just want to close my eyes and sleep.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

First of all, congrats on your TGF SCS win! Whoo hoo!!!

Second of all, I'm still laughing about your husband's butterfly comment, too funny! (men?!) She is to die for! It is such a neat sentiment you put on there, fits perfectly! I just bought that butterfly paper yesterday, great minds.... ;)

Fun day with your daughter! I'm going to have one this friday with mine. My little one only has about 4 weeks of school left, and about 5 days off from now until the end!? Crazy.

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as
