The Wings of the Butterfly

Hurray! It's Sunday and that means the new challenge is up on the Sentimental Sundays blog. The challenge this week is "Encouragement & Support".

I wanted to use something a little different than "Hang in there" or "Thinking of You" so I decided to use this sentiment from Tlc Creations. It says "May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun and find your shoulder to light on." For some reason, it just strikes a chord inside me and I love it.


I hope you will join us this week and share your cards of support and encourgement on the Sentimental Sundays blog. A random entrant will win 4 digital stamp sentiments of their choosing or a sentiment set from Raindrop Echo Designs Whismy Stamp digital collection. The only rule is that you follow the theme and you must have a sentiment somewhere on your card.

Thank you for looking!

Challenges for this card:


Supplies:
  • Images: Butterflies Word Art by Tlc Creations on Digi Design Resort
  • Papers & CS: My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow Spring in Bloom, Blue-Green Vines, & Checking out, Georgia Pacific CS, PaperTrey white CS, misc. orange CS
  • Inks: None
  • Tools: Copics & Prisma color markers (to color gems), Cricut, Xyron, Martha Stewart lace border punch, Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities
  • Embellishments: My Time Made Easy Flutters & Flowers, misc. gems

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
