A Start on May

Can you believe that we are almost into May already?!?!?!?!?!?! It seems like it was just February! May is a busy month for us, and this May will be even busier than usual. In the first two weeks of May, we have 4 birthdays and Mother's Day, and then our anniversary and Memorial Day at the end of the month. I haven't start much, but I have started working on a few cards and gifts.

Below is a simple card that will be going to my MIL. She loves butterflies. These butterfly stamps were from K&Company, as was the patterned paper. The card stock was basic Recollections cardstock, and the ribbon was from a gift that I saved the ribbon from.

I also put together simple thinking of you card, as I was being inspired by the butterfly theme. The butterfly is just one of the clip art graphics in Microsoft Word, with the color of the butterfly changed to black and the sentiment was typed out in Microsoft Word as well. The patterned paper was from the Recollections Teal Butterflies patterned papers. The button was from the dollar aisle at Michaels and the cardstock base is from the Recollections basic cardstock packs and their loose card stock options.

I live :)

Hello All, I thought I would share a quick picture of a card I made a few weeks ago for a friend... Sorry for the lack of blog posts, between the hubby and myself having bronchitis for a combined month (I'm still trying to kick the cough completely) and work, there just hasn't been much time to craft! 

But back to the card....

It is a small 4 1/2 by 5 1/4 card, with a piece of one of the standard Colors Fashion Packs you can find at acmoore or Michaels as the base. I used patterned papers from First Edition Papers' Bird Song 6x6 designer pad and used a flower digi stamp from D2D Digi Stamps. I colored the image with my Sharpee Markers. The pearls are the Q&Co line and the ribbon I got at the dollar tree. The flower came from Prima pink flower pack and the gem came from Q&Co as well.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Spring!
