Been a Bad Blogger

Ladies I hope you'll forgive and hang on just a little bit longer then I'll be back on my regular schedule!

My dad fell and broke a hip two weeks ago so I've been running between home, work, the hospital/rehab facility, mom's house, and Jake's school activities for graduation!

Can you say no time to play?!?!

Can't get enough of this set!

This is the card I used for Mothers Day, I don't think I've ever seen anything made with this set that I didn't like! This just might be another stamp camp project ;~)

Elegant? Rooster?

Can roosters be elegant??? I don't know but I love this guy! To get the colors the way I wanted them I colored with the Watercolor Crayons directly on the image then used a watercolor brush to blend them.

Aunt Wynn's Gift - part 1

My DH's aunt just turned 90, this lady is awesome! But what do you get for a 90 yo lady?
She actually gave us a hint by mailing my DD a congrats card for making the honor roll at school. In the note she sent Katie she mentioned that she hadn't been able to get out shopping and all she had left for cards were ugly one's! So this Cool Caribbean, Soft Sky, black, and white butterfly ensemble was born! Over the next few days I'll be bringing you close up photos of each of the cards, but here's a peek at the entire collection and how I packaged it.

Oh and by the way - the butterflies on the turquoise issue is recycled printed issue packaging I got in a Hanna Stamps order!!! The only stamping I did on this entire ensemble was backgrounds and sentiments. The small black butterflies are the Martha Stewart punch.

Hope you enjoy!
