Congrats Card, Award, and Big News!

Saturday, April 9, 2011

First up my project... I am so excited to finally have the chance to post this project!  It has been a super busy week.  This card was created for my sister, who just got married.  She loves butterflies, so that is where I got my inspiration!  The paper colors are actually teal tones and the ribbon is pink, but I think it some what hard to tell in the pictures.  I definitely need to find a way to make my pictures look better.  They just never seem to do my cards justice!
Of course, I added a bit of sparkle to the butterflies and the heart.  For those of you who don't know, I often use glittered fabric paint in my cards.  It is usually cheaper than craft glitter and the glitter specks themselves are a bit smaller and it gives a different effect.  The spots on the butterflies are done with Tulip fabric paint and the heart is done with Stickles.
What I Used:
* Teal Cardstock Cut 5.5" x 4.25"
* Lighter Teal Carstock Cut 5.25" x 4"
* White Cardstock Cut 5" x 3.75"
* Cuttlebug & Floral Fantasy Folder
* Pink Ribbon
* Tulip Glitter Fabric Paint
* Stickles Cotton Candy
* Sentiment from TPC Stamps (from Joann Fabrics)
* Butterflies Cut From Potpourri Basket (originally from Home Accents)
* Scalloped Ovals from Create-a-Critter

Next... My new award!  I am so honored to receive the "A Thing of Beauty" blog award.  Thanks so much to Sherrie K at Sherrie Scraps for giving me this award!  If you have been to visit Sherrie you certainly should.  She makes amazing projects!  For this award I have to share 5 things about myself, including why I love scrapping, (I sure am sharing a lot about myself lately, I'm starting to run out of things to say) and pass it 5 other beautiful bloggers.  
 5 things about me:
1.  I love crafting because it is relaxing and I can express my inner creativity.
2.  I have 13 Cricut Cartridges and still have yet to use some of them (I'm working my way to them though).
3.  I have the most wonderful and supportive husband.  I don't know what I'd do without him.
4.  I'm a bit addicted to plastic containers to store things.  Every storage closet plus the shelves in the basement are filled with them!
5.  I love being able to spend my days with little minds that are constantly growing

I'm sharing this award with these beautiful blogs (it was so hard to choose just 5!):
* Maquel at Paper Maine-iac
* Kristin at Pinkldy Crafter

I'm going to hop over and let these wonderful ladies know they have an award.  You should definitely check them out too.  They all have spectacular  ideas!  Before you go I'd like to tell you that The Paper Variety has chosen my idea for their next challenge.  This means that next week (4/13/11 to be exact) I will be displayed as a guest designer for them!  They have a wonderful sponsor and an amazing prize. Be sure to come back and check it out! As always *~*Thanks for Stopping By*~*
