Spring may not quite be in the air today here in Fort Worth but decided to make this Spring themed card. I made the butterfly standout by stamping him twice and then cutting out one and adhering 'him' to the first one with liquid glass. Both butterflies were colored using water color pencils and blender pen. All supplies are from CTMH.

A theme on a variation. Made this card basically for the classes I'm teaching this month but wanted to change it out for Mother's Day. So I added the strip - the original has Hi! on the cream paper but there wasn't room for Mother's Day Greeting.
The stamp set if the March SOM which at first I didn't like but now I'm a convert totally and have loved making this card using it. The dutch blue cardstock is embossed using me new favorite tool the cuttlebug. Its so easy to make cute backgrounds like this. Especially with the white core paper of the CTMH which adds dimensions.
In the meantime I have also been working on my room. Not picture ready yet but nearly. Great improvements have been made. I may even have something to work on next weekend at the crop!
I hope to finish today. Wait until you see the picture

I can't quite believe I haven't posted in so long. Life has taken over and its been filled with so many "essential" things that others have gone by the wayside.
As you can see from my scraproom its not that things are organised round here. They aren't. At the moment I'm trying to madly get ready for a scrapbook retreat and this seems crazy with the state of my room and where everything is. I love scrapbook retreats but I just wish I could pick my room up and take it with me. I have no clue what I'm working on really and so no clue what not to take so I guess I better start moving now so I will have it all ready. I don't even have the pictures printed so it makes it a little hard to get ready. Anyone got a few days to do this for me????
