Butterfly Cape

Happy Thursday! You know this day kind of gets a bad rap but honestly, it is one of my favorite days. One reason it means the next day is Friday. Second reason is because I get to share some crafty goodness with you.

Today, I get to show you my second DT card and it is for Creative Knockouts! Our sponsor is Broken Fairy Designs and I am using Butterfly Cape. Thank you for letting me use this image.

Challenge #191 - Friendship

Prize: 3 Images
It was fun to color up my image using Copic markers, unbranded dies, and scissors.

Come on over and share your crafty goodness with us at Creative Knockouts. We would love to see you. 

I appreciate all comments and thank you so much for sharing my newest work with me.
Have a blessed day!

Dare to Dream Gift Card Holder

Hello, Hello! Welcome to my blog. It is time for a brand new challenge over at 4 Crafty Chicks. Lori is our fantastic hostess this week and she would love to see Gift Card Holders for Challenge #348. Isn't this an awesome challenge. There are so many gift card holders designs. My fellow chicks and my mom totally rock them. I would love to try to make more. Hope mine up above inspires you a little bit.

My gift card holder is made from the TOP NOTE (SU), embossing folder (SU), circle punch (SU) and Unbranded and MFT dies. Misti was also used with Impression Obsession stamps.

The chicks in our hen house have some amazing creations for you this week. Grab a favorite drink and share your craftiness with us at 4 Crafty Chicks.

Have an amazing day! Thanks for stopping by.

Hello, Hello! Today is my turn to be hostess over at 4 Crafty Chicks. One of the things I get so excited about is to see butterflies flutter by. Each of them is so unique and beautiful. Just one of nature's, treasures.

Challenge #347

My card above was made with Pattern paper from Stampin Up (retired) and whisper white card stock. The die for the butterflies is an unbranded die. The pearls are unknown and there is white, purple color and gold. Unfortunately, I don't think you can see the wink of stella I used on the butterflies.

Please join us at 4 Crafty Chicks this week. We would love to see your wonderful creations. 

Thanks for joining me today

Good morning to you! Yesterday we had a beautiful sunny day with blustering wind. At one point thought my house might end up at my fellow chicks Leanne's place.  

Leanne is our beautiful hostess this week at 4 Crafty Chicks. I really adore the challenge she has set for us. It is one that I find tough but hopefully, my card will inspire you.  For Challenge #345 Leanne would like us to break out the flowers.  We have a brand new Guest Designer for the month of April. Welcome to the Hen House, Christine.

Challenge #345 - Flowers.

The card above is made using Stampin Up paper (Cherry Cobbler, Vanilla and Pool Party). The Die used is an unknown brand name to me.  The flowers on the top have dazzling diamonds on them. Wish my pictures showed it better.  I took scissors to the Cherry Cobbler flowers and cut them into pieces to border them around the popped up flower. The word Love is a die from Sizzix Thinlits.

I really am hoping my pictures show up clear. They look really awesome on my phone but then when I get them to my email, well I am not sure what happens.

These are the following challenges I would like to enter.

Please come and join us at 4 Crafty Chicks, our DT & GDT have some awesome inspiration for you.
