A Lot of Hot Air!!

My work schedule keeps changing and being a 'Schedule Person', I am finding hard to find time to play in my Butterfly Garden but......

I saw this wonderful sketch at Retro Sketches Challenge and thought I'd play along. I designed the card in my head while I was at work, then fortunately (probably for the FIRST time, ever!!!)....the card came together just as I had imagined. See...miracles do happen!

Balloon stamps and die cuts are from PTI, verse from PTI.

As usual I rotated the sketch and used a landscape view rather than portrait.

Off to work then perhaps some time to create in my Butterfly Garden when I get home.

Autumn's Majesty

Sorry I have been absent this past month, I sure have missed all of your fabulous creations. I will try to get around to visit you soon....major comment withdrawal!   "LIFE happens" and I now have the world's largest supply of lemonade.

Here in the northeast we are seeing a marvelous show of colors thanks to Mother Nature. This card captures some of the beauty we are witnessing.

The challenge at Dynamic Duos is to create a card using bold and sassy colors. Stamp from Flourishes, die cuts and rolled flower from SB, papers from K & Co. ribbon and pearls from stash.

The Dynamic Duos color challenge:

See you soon....

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

Theresa's Birthday

Happy birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Theresa, Happy Birthday to you!

Today is Theresa's Birthday and her lovely sister Melissa is throwing her a virtual Birthday Party. This is a very special birthday for Theresa.....I won't tell you her exact age......but a ends in "0". It is also her 5th Anniversary of being a breast cancer survivor. So stop by the Tuesday Morning Sketches site to see the celebration and visit Theresa's blog "My Sassy Cards" to wish her a Happy Birthday.

This is the card I made for Theresa's Virtual Birthday Party Celebration.

To celebrate this occasion, we are having a special month long challenge.  Here are the specifications:

  • You need to create a card or project that is Pink and Birthday themed and link it To the TMS Virtual Birthday Party. (HERE)
  • This isn't a blog hop, it's a party, so please mingle with your hostesses.  In other words, visit the hostesses blogs at your leisure and leave them some love.  There's no particular order that you have to follow.
  • You must stop by the birthday girl's blog and leave her a message.  You might want to anyway, because I hear she's got a prize there.

You have all month to play along.  Your deadline to link is October 31st, 8:00 pm EST.  After that, the link will close and there will be one randomly drawn winner for a fabulous blog candy.  I'm not going to say much about what's in the prize, but I will say that there's a Scor-Pal in there!
