Inspired By Sneaks....

Well, I have go to say, I am TOTALLY IN LOVE with this card... I am NOT a dramatic person (well, ok, maybe just a tad dramatic in some ways....) but THIS SET... when I pulled it out of the package I was INSTANTLY IN LOVE... SO beautiful and I couldn't wait for my weekend to arrive so I could get started.  I knew EXACTLY what papers I was going to use... I have had this Daisy Vellum for quite some time, in fact I have used it ONCE before and it was old then too... LOL  I layered the Daisy Vellum over the top of Lemon Tart CS, matted with black, and then mounted that onto some Summer Sunrise CS matted on black also.  Baby Braddies attached.  I wrapped some DELISH ribbon from Michele Lourenco (Delfinaus on SCS) around after tieing a knot in the front part.  I stamped all three butterfly images onto Perfect Paper Panels, colored with copics and probably broke every Copic Blending rule to get those colors to glide into each other, but it worked!  HA! :)  I then cut out each piece leaving a slight white border around them and coated each one with VersaMark ink and then Clear Heat Embossed them.  While the EP was still hot, I dipped my finger into my glitter jug, YES JUG, and flicked some pieces of glitter onto the images... OOOO & AWWWW.....


For the Inside another piece of the Vellum plain this time, cut a skinny strip of black CS to edge it, some black pearls from MFT , can't have Brad Butts on the back of your card... BLECH, HATE BRAD BUTTS!!!!

The Sentiment is one of several in the set and it is just Gorgeous... this is a TRUE MUST HAVE SET!!!!!!



So, there are some fairly new kids on the block... by Claire Keay... here is another... she's called Enjoy Every Moment.  You know she's a Western Washingtonian, just look at those shoes... Birkenstocks!!!  EEEEK!!!! LOL  AND she is chasing the sun tryin to catch it as it's a RARE thing around here.  tee hee.  I used the new Butterfly die namic **AGAIN** on my card...and of course the Sunshine die namic.  I used a Wood button from the Earth collection (earth/birkenstocks *get it* ;) ) and then a double bow from twine.  some dots and checks make this card SUPER CUTE!!!!! 

OK, so let's flutterby to Kim's Blog and see what the Dream Weavers of a DT Team she has, have come up with.... shall we??  YES!  LET'S!!!!!

What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.
