Butterfly Elegance

Hi there!

So I've decided to go back to basics and make some very Clean and Simple cards.  I'm selling my cards at a couple of places and they're being sold quickly so I needed to find a way to still create beautiful and elegant but 'cheaper' and 'quicker' cards - hence going back to basics!  I really love this set of 4 matching cards that I've made today - I used the gorgeous colour combo of aqua and pink and used an old SU! flower set and a flourish from my stash.  The butterfly is a MS punch and the sentiments are SU!  On two of the cards I've embellished with pearls and the other two with bling.

Thanks for stopping in - I always love your visits.  We seem to have been hit by a stomach bug that is doing the rounds so I'll make this a quick post!  I have been blog hopping but I just haven't had the time to leave any comments  :(

I hope to catch up with you all again sometime soon.

Take care,

Spring Swing

Hi there!

Can you tell I'm hankering for Spring to arrive!!  Still a ways to go before we see signs of Spring here in Canada but hopefully it won't be too much longer!

I vowed to get into my craft room this weekend so after some baking (yummy banana muffins for the kids lunches) I descended to my craft room and inked up (for the first time may I add) this delightful LOTV image.  I coloured with copics and sponged the background with distress inks to create the sky. The papers are Stella & Rose from MME - aren't they just gorgeous!

Here's a side view of the card.  I'm keeping up with my new year promise to finish off the insides of my cards when making them - woohoo!!

The finished inside panel of the card, with details matching the front.  Hope you like my card today.  I really hope I'll get some blog hopping done in the next couple of days but hubby just flew out to Japan today for a week business trip so I'll be on my own with the boys and working at the same time ...eeek!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Pearls & Lace
Moving Along with the Times - Cute Critters
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge - Free & Easy February
The Crafty Pad - The Letter 'B' (bunny, bow, butterfly)

Thanks for stopping in - your visits are always so much appreciated!

Hugs, Danielle x

Whoooo loves you?

Hi there!

Another quickie card for you tonight.  I managed to get this sweet valentine card done on Monday ... and lucky for me it was sold by the end of the day to a colleague at work!

This cute owl is a new addition to my collection and is coloured with copics.  I love the pink/brown colour combo and I punched out loads of hearts using my MS heart punch.  The sentiment is from stash.

Here's the completed inside panel of my card.  Whoooo loves you?  I LOVE YOU!  So cute isn't it!  Again, pulled the papers and colours and punched hearts from the main panel to complete the inside look.

Thanks for stopping by ... I so appreciate you coming by and I hope my schedule eases up some so I can spend a little time playing blog catch up!  Not sure when that will be as hubby jet sets off to Japan at the weekend for a weeks business trip ... sigh!

Take care and hope to see you all again here soon!
