Happy Birthday Sweet Sarah

Well I was right - 3 year old little Sarah couldn't give two figs about her card that I labored over...LOL.

She has been into playing "Mommy & Baby" so much that this little Sugar Nellie image is just so her (100% !!). She loves her "babies" and names them all "Honey Bunny" or "Sweetie Pie". She's hilarious. So naturally I got her a little baby that moves and cries until you give her a soother. So without further adooooo... here's the card that immediately got set aside (lol!!) as she reached into the gift bag for yet another "Sweetie Pie".

Happy Monday everyone.............. if there is such a thing. ;)

Trying the Lotus....

Received my Spellbinder Pre-Order!!! Had to try the Lotus Pendant right away... okay, well not right away... was sleepy and lazy but I got there in the end!!

I love the pendant! I found it takes a few extra rotations through the Cuttlebug (like the Fleur deLis), but well worth the wait. I added the butterfly last minute (coloured with copics & dotted with a white gel pen).

Have a great Sunday everyone......I'm headed back to the craft room. Must make a very special card for my 3 year old niece. (Like she'll care... she just wants the present - lol).

Finally... some colour!

I was having colour withdrawal from the last card... so here's a burst of colour:

I don't think I ever used so many colours in one card before. Actually I avoid doing that entirely... except that I loved the pants off this Fancy Pants designer paper. I used my copics for colouring and tried to match up the Hero Arts images with the paper then I added some white dots to the butterfly wings. The Verve sentiment on the inside reads, " ... a very happy birthday".

Obviously I'm not over my butterfly phase......
