Sweet Sundays to you all!
I seem to have been bitten by the craft bug this week and have had my head down in my desk creating *oh it feels great!* I've been dabbling between Birthday cards and Christmas cards trying to make a head start on 2012 and so far doing well. As part of my new years resolution I have started to include at least two pieces from my scraps collection and I am no longer holding onto those 'to good to use' papers that I buy as they are soo pretty but never want to cut up and use. A very bad shopping habit that I have.
Today's scraps is the bottom layer of white spots on the blue and the glitter butterfly sheet is a left over from another project that I have been hording for over a year, I think I differently made the right choice biting the bullet and combining it in this card. I am also amazed at the amount of cardstock I have in my scrap basket, I did not have to use one single new sheet on this card as I seem to have an abundance of left over card bases. I have also used a laser sticker butterfly on this card (and I never use stickers) but I just had to toady as when I see the Just Inspirational pic this week and the blue and black butterfly I knew I had one exactly the same in my stash.
I've been playing with a new image today from The Craft Pad Designs called Lulu Blowing Bubbles and she is just adorable. She is available in a colored and non colored version but playing around on my computer I accidentally turned her into a silhouette and I am in love with the mistake that I just had to keep her that way. Mixed with the glitter butterfly paper with the sparkly swirl, the laces, pearls and bling this is just such a gorgeous feminine card. The sentiment is computer generated in MS Word.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your visit.
