Sunny Altered Note Pad

I'm back again!
I'm on a roll today with trying projects because my son is not being to needy for attention so I thought I would try to create a bunch of items for door prizes, hostess gifts and samples. This creation is an altered note pad...I can't seem to stop using this paper lately. :)

Butterfly flight

Happy Saturday all!

I was looking around on some different blogs for some inspiration and came across for Gilda Fellows who is living in Tokyo Japan right now during this horrible crisis and I decided I would like to CASE her because she has so many beautiful things to share. This is my version of a butterfly frame she did. I used the same colors but did not place a sentiment in the middle. Hope you like will probably end up as a door prize one of these days.

Build a Blossom

Good morning all!

I am trying to get myself back into blogging and I thought I would share some of my monthly club cards with you. Each month I have a group of ladies that come over for some fun and make 4 cards and 1 3-d item. Hope you enjoy this one, it is made with the the new Build a Blossom and Blossom Petals punch from the 201 1Occasions Mini Catalog. It seems like a tricky set to use but once you get the hang of it, there are endless possibilities of how it can be used. It is probably my favorite item right now. I decided you  can never have too many birthday cards and i love this color combination!
