Beautiful Butterflies!

I LOVE butterflies - they are so pretty and remind me of SPRING! ...and with the mild weather we have been having where I live - I can only hope that SPRING is on it's way {and sooner, rather than later!}
 I have made this card using my KREAXION'S 4in1 PUNCH - don't you just LOVE the way that punched inner circle looks! {For a person who HATES making cards - these punches make it a JOY!} I mounted the {punched} paper onto cardstock and a piece of map, which I had cut a circle out of...using the most amazing circle cutter...Kreaxion's
The 3 larger butterflies have been cut using Tim Holtz Mover's and Shapers Butterfly die, scored down the middle and slightly bent! {I attached them using crazy glue}

...and one more!
{I love how it looks like the butterflies have just landed on the card - so pretty!}
Happy Days!...and think SPRING!

More on The Art of Wild Abandonment!

I am still making my way through The Art of Wild Abandonment class by Junelle Jacobson {available on Christy Tomlinson's site} - let me tell you that I am LOVING it. I have learned a lot through this course, especially since I had decided that I would mainly concentrate on art journaling as a creative outlet this year...I am off to a slow, but steady start.  
Sketching Sweets
My yummy looking cupcakes...except for the white one - I think it reminds me more of an ice cream

These guys are my favourite - too cute!

He looks a little sleepy!

Have a GREAT day!

Happy Wednesday, All!!! Hope things are going well!
Today I am posting a card that I have made for Just Imagine Crafts
To make this card I cut a 6"x12" piece of cardstock {yellow} and scored it at 3" from the two sides to make the folds.  I cut a 1/2 circle on each end, using my Kreaxion's Circle Cutter.  Using the Kreaxion's Stencils I marked the grey paper and then used my 4in1 Punch 907 to create the inner punched circle - then I just cut the paper in half...easy. I stamped My Mind's Eye's Beautiful stamp on the Chadwick Label and then attached it to the left side of the card, along with Prima {paper} Flowers.

Thanks for stopping by for a peek!

May Love Surround You

Happy Wednesday! Today I am posting a card that I created for my Step-Mom, for her birthday.
'May Love Surround You'
To create the rings I used my {quick, compact and easy to use} KREAXION'S CIRCLE CUTTER, by simply cutting a circle, adjusting the circle cutter to a smaller size and then cutting around the same circle.  I POPPED! some of the circles up to create a little depth and inserted the sweet little bird in the center.
