Beary Butterfly Birthday

I loved making this card for my niece. She just turned 2.

I used the Bazill Basics Paper Evening Surf and Snap Dragon along with a scrap from my paper box; some Robyns' Nest Dew Drops; white ribbon; Versa Mark with the stamps Hero Arts Line & Flower pattern and the butterfly that sort of fit with the Cricut Butterfly that I cut out using the (?) Cartridge; I also used Penny Johnson "Butterfly Bear" and a stamp from "Fairly Sweet" Make a Wish; Martha Stewart border punch; a brad in the center of the flowers, both from Michael's and last but not least, my Copics, sorry I did not write down the colors that I used.  Next time I will try to remember to take a picture of the colors that I use.

I must say that making B-day cards for my friends who scrap is very nerve racking.  I try to look at the card through their eyes to see my mistakes...what can I add to bling it up....should I use this or that??????? Oh well, its done now and I think it looks okay.  This card was especially hard because it was going to someone who definitely does not like pink.  So of course every paper combo I looked at had pink somewhere on it. I must like pink, but I will have to try to remember that when I go shopping that not every one else does.

I actually remembered to make a List of the supplies that I used to make this card.  I used the Creative Memories Custom Cutting Circles, butterfly punch, shades of yellow Gold paper; the Cricut and Song Bird Cartridge, cuttlebug; assorted stamps; Stampin Up scalloped border and circle punch; paper from Patchwork Paper, Kaiser Craft, Doodlebug Designs Inc., and assorted paper from my scrap box, and some butterfly ribbon that I got from Michael's.
I hope you have a Happy Easter.

A Birthday Book

Life happens, and I know thats no excuse, but I must say that I have to get used to having this commitment.  I finished the card book for my friends B-Day gift almost two months ago, but its taken me this long to find time to make this post to my blog.  I hope she liked it as much as I do.

This Card Book has pockets for each month of the year. For each month there is a date page that you can make a note of special days. Every month you can then look through (a month or two ahead of time) and make cards for all those special occasions.  In hopes that you will never be late with Birthday cards. I find that most times I do my best work when I'm under pressure. As I stated in an earlier blog, I have a hard time being able to list all of the materials as some if it is scraps from other projects.  Sorry I will try to remember next time
