A Surprise Guest

I had a surprise guest over the weekend and they arrived late on Friday night.  I wasn't expecting any family over the long weekend, but to my surprise we had a weekend guest.  The visit went really well and the surprise ended up to be a very good one; however, I wasn't able to post over the weekend.

Here are a couple of pictures of my project I completed today

Butterfly card from the Art Philosophy cartridge

Cardstock used was Twilight, Sweetleaf and the Emporium Paper Pack

The Butterfly card is on page 55 and I cut the card size to 5.5 inches.  I took my white gel pen and added stiching all around the edges of the card and left the folded side blank.  The flowers, butterflies and floral tag were cut to 1.5 and 2.5 inches.  I embellished the card using Pearl Opaques and I stamped the Love You image using the Heartthrob stamp set (D1309).

I hope you like this simple, but cute card.

It's been a long week

It's been a long week and I am looking forward to Friday to come.  I have been away from my blog because my son was in a car accident this week and I have been busy attending to my family.  We are all okay, it has just been a small ordeal.  Now I am looking forward to tomorrow since I have it off for the long weekend.  The day looks jam packed full of picking up some craft supplies and taking care of some household items.  However, once this is all looked after I plan on working in my craft room and completing a project that is well overdue.  I think tomorrow is a great day to start a project and to share with you all.  Stay tuned for my post tomorrow to reveal my project.

Also September is a new month with a new Stamp of the Month, please take a look at my website to see what it is...September's SOTM.  You can place your order right from my site and it is fast and easy to do.
