To My Wonderful Friend!


Hi there! I have no idea where the morning went today...I've been cleaning and crafting the day away, but I forgot to tell you the great news...Hobby Lobby opened up right down the street in Hanover!!! Whoo Hoo! I'm so happy I don't have to drive 1 1/2 hours to the nearest one anymore! Yay! I was there on Wednesday right after they opened and I ran into my crafty friend Julie from Paper and Such and I heard that Janice was already there too! We'll have to meet up for some shopping and lunch sometime girls!

I have another card for you today. I began a huge clean up of my craft room and so I just had to sit down in my straightened up space and play along with my favorite challenges since I have the whole house to myself today! I used one of my favorite Flourishes sets too...Butterflies & Blossoms! I followed the Card Patterns sketch from last Saturday and three in a row elements from Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Bingo card!

I started with this pretty TCP Studio dp and added some lace, my squares and a nifty little Melissa Frances frame. I colored my butterfly with Copics and cut it out, popped it up and made it look like it's flying right in the frame! My sentiment is from the same set and it's stamped on kraft and popped up too then tied up with some rustic twine. Some pearls in the corners and Prima flowers make this one complete!

Challenges:
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #133 - Bingo - Prima Flowers, Pearls and Edge/Color Distressing
Card Patterns Sketch 130 - Sketch
CR84FN 37 - Turquoise, Light Blue and Neutral (see graphic)


Thanks for taking a peek today...have a fabulous weekend!
