A place where I can show my creative side. I love to be artsy and crafty... Things I enjoy: scrapbooking, making cards, stamping, painting, sewing, playing the piano and singing. I've posted photos of some of my past creations and will continue to post more as I make them. Put your feet up and stay awhile.

I spent far too much time on this silly card... but I really like it! Lots of flowers, butterflies and bling. Tilda is really enjoying Spring this year even though a lot of people I know are knee-deep in snow! In fact, we are supposed to get snow on our nearby mountain tonight and that doesn't happen too often here in Southern AZ.
Here's my first Easel card evah!: (as always click on images to enlarge)
Every flower and butterfly is hand-made by me! The butterfly with the pink stickles and pink bling is pre-cut chipboard which I painted white and then covered with stickles. The other butterflies are punched out with Martha Stewart punches. The flowers were punched out with SU punches and the rolled one is a Die-namics from MFT.
I made the card wider than usual because I knew I wanted to add a lot of flowers. I also wanted to have enough room on either side of Tilda for you to see the gorgeous My Mind's Eye "quite contrary" paper.
I used Sweet Sunday's sketch for my card design.
The grass is the bar across the bottom. Check out the back of the card below:
