Butterfly Twisted Easel

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

For today's card I've used a number of butterfly die cuts that were cut months ago, before my mojo disappeared and I've teamed them with a newer favorite.


And here it is open, where you can see I added the topper directly to the easel without backing it...

The noble square die makes it relatively easy to create the twisted base, and I've used the central square for the stopper.

Card: SU's thick whisper white and smoky slate
Tools and embellishments: Creative Expressions Butterfly Circle dies, Sue Wilson's Noble Ornate Pierced Squares (the stopper is the central die), and rhinestones from my stash

Challenges...
#86 A is for Any Shape at Mrs. A.'s Butterfly Challenge (another I've not joined for way too long
#187 AG at Artistic Inspirations
#138 AG at Creative Fingers

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

I know, ya get nothing from me for a month and now 2 cards in 2 days... eek!  But I couldn't miss my dear friend Darnell's latest NBUS challenge and I'm sneaking in on day 9 of 10... eek eek!  And yep, that sounds like Darnell's sweet Hammy's distress call at my ineptitude.  Grin.


Card: SU's thick whisper white, cherry cobbler and cucumber crush
Ink: SU's crumb cake
Stamp sets: Die'sire Sentimentals Memories are Made (NBUS)
Tools and embellishments: Sue Wilson's finishing touches Sweet William (NBUS) and CE pearls

Challenges...
#12 NBUS at djkardkreations
#82 Life's Events at Dies R Us (for me friendship is something worth celebrating, but I might be stretching the theme)
#302-303 AG at Word Art Wednesday - I've not entered their challenges in what seems like forever, so please stop by and give them some love

I promise I'll be back next week with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

CAS Halloween and/or Colors at House of Cards

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

Before we get to my latest DT card for House of Cards, I must apologize for going AWOL for a month.  Although I only post once a week I try and schedule posts quite a way in advance, but thanks to my mojo disappearing a few months ago, they ran out, and I've not been able to create anything blog worthy.  It's also been why my visits to your blogs have slipped.

That said, I've created a few cards this weekend, so I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things and return to regular scheduling soon, but your patience is appreciated until I'm fully back up to speed.

This month at HoC we're asking you to create a CAS (clean and simple) Halloween card, and or colors from the inspiration image...


I went with the colors, and yep, it's the 3rd straight month I've used the die to create my card.  Sorry, not sorry! ;)


Card: SU's Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso (I'm out of black)
Tools and embellishments: Sue Wilson's Noble ornate pierced squares, and rhinestones my DT teamie Shauna sent me a long time ago - eek - some are black backed

Challenges...
#301 - 302 AG at Pixie's Snippets Playground (admittedly I've used rather large snippets)
#39 AAG at Polkadoodles
#142 AG at Crafty Gals Corner

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.
