happy friday :)
i am so honored to be invited to be guest designer for monique and wendy over at monique griffiths designs for the month of june. i havent had the pleasure of meeting these ladies ..YET.. we live about 2 hours apart so one day soon im positive. :)
thank you monique and wendy for thinking my cards are worthy :)
for my project i made a card which is what i usually post here. i do scrapbooking i just dont normally post those because i add the pictures as i go and i wear my heart on my sleeve so i dont often share the way personal stuff :) i made this with all of us in mind as sometimes we live for others and forget about our own dreams hopes and aspirations. NEVER let yourself get so lost in someone else you lose yourself..
so.. on to my little card
i used my cricut of course ;)
the cartridges i used: walk in my garden for the caterpillar, doodle charms for the jar and zoobaloo for the branches.
wimg and dc were the first image cartridges i purchased and they still after all these years are my favorite go to cartridges.
the butterflies are a stamp, stamped to the b/g paper first then again stamped and cut then adhered the centers only so the butterflies are free to flit their wings ;) i colored them in with colorbox fluid chalk and then added a bit of diamond stickles to them for extra prettiness.
i added foam stickies under the jar and also only adhered the top and bottom of one of the branches, bending it slightly for depth. ( pic 3 shows this)
i computer generated the text and used a MS border punch .
i used SU cardstock for the base of the card and the punched part.
the beautiful b/g paper is by memorybox. i added buttercup liquid pearls to the center of the flowers.
thanks so much for stopping by and visiting, youre always welcome and your comments leave me feeling blessed thank you for that :)
have a super day hope its full of crafty fun! and again thank you monique and wendy! xxxshelly
