Happy Wednesday Everyone

I hope everyone is having a great week so far. I have my granddaughter here with me this week for her spring break. We have been extremely busy. I think I over commented myself this past week.I had way to much that needed to get done.  I did get all my cards done for the card swap over at Scraplifters, just in time. I also got my die cuts out in the mail for the face book group. I was very unhappy with my die cuts. I apologize to everyone who is getting a die cut from me. I ran out of time and of course that's when my Cricut decides it doesn't want to cut anything less than 3 inches. I cut and then recut until there was no time left. I sent them out the door even tho I didnt like the quality. The antennas on my butterflies kept breaking off. I finally hand cut new ones , glued them on and called it a day! Next time I will not wait until the last minute to get my projects done.
Here is a pic of the butterflies I finally got finished. Also the cards I did for the monthly card swap.
I also have been very busy getting my inventory pic's up at the Button Stash , my online store (http://www.artfire.com/users/buttonstash). That turned out to be a lot more work there than I thought it would be. Isnt that the way it always is?  lol

Have a wonderful week. I plan to spend the rest of the week with my granddaughter. She goes back home Saturday!! Thank you for stoping by my blog.

The butterflies were done in a blue Pearlescent paper with white top layers. The white layers were run thru the cuddle bug and swiss dots. That part came out as planned. BUT!!!! the antennas were another story.
These were made from the Sentimentals cart. Cut at 3,2 and 1 1/2.

this card was done with Strech Your Imagination cart. I saw this card on the Sizzix site. If there is any interest I will do a video.  I used my G and some old packaging for the jar. Let me know if you want to see how I did it

This card was done from a cut on the Sweethearts cart. I think it makes a great wedding card. The card stock was already embossed when I bought the paper. I added a pearl bling to the heart. I used MS glitter and ribbon I had in my stock pile.


  1. I think your butterflies are gorgeous. I love your dove card too. Infact, I love it all. What fb group do you swap with cuts?

  2. Thank you Brenda. I swapped cuts with a cricut group. here is the link
    This is my first time to do so. I swap cards with a cricut group as well on yahoo

  3. The butterflies are very pretty. I really love the get well soon card. I think I may scraplift that saying and make a similar card since I don't have the cart you used.

  4. Thanks Nancy, I beleive the cart they used was different than mine too. When you get done let us see your card

  5. Love the butterflies and the card too.
