I Have Some Exciting News!!!

Good morning everyone!!! This is such an exciting day because I get to share some wonderful news with you....I am the June Guest Designer for Creative Cuts & More!!!!! They have the most wonderful diecuts and paper, cards, envelopes. bags, boxes, 3-D cuts and lots more!! Be sure to check out their blog, The Diecut Dive, for lots of inspiration!!!

My card uses the Color Block Window A7 Scallop Card in Limeade. I have had this beautiful May Arts ribbon for quite a while and I was finally able to use it because the colors matched perfectly!! The card is 5x7 with a scallop at the bottom which I covered up with the Basic Grey Green at Heart paper. I also covered the blocked openings with the dp and punched the butterflies with it, too. The fairy image is from Sparkle & Sprinkle called Garden Fairies...it was colored with copics, cut out with round scalloped Nestabilities and attached with dimensionals. Silver pearls were added to the butterflies and I drew on the anteneas.

I also made this for a few other challenges:

1. The Pink Elephant - use bright colors (I think I aced that one!!)
2. Aly's Sunday Sketch - bows or ribbon
3. One stitch at a Time - use something new - my new cardstock, Basic Grey papers, and new stamp
4. Rosie D's Challenge Blog - use a fairy
5. Quirky Crafts - girlie girl
6. Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog - pimp your card with lots of embellies
7. Totally Gorjuss - wings

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day!! We are off to Cody's 1st Grade program....we have 3 more this week!! It's sooo wonderful to be a Grandma!!!
