Go with your heart

 I wanted to get out some of my older goodies I hadn't played with in awhile and this is one that I thought would make a lovely card for my friend.  I added some pattern paper to the inside of the butterflies.


  • Memory Box - Kensington Branch die
  • Tim Holtz - Mixed Media die and small talk sentiment
  • Crafters companion - Advent calendar, Paper 
  • Queen & Co. - Pave Gem

I would like to share my card with Word Art Wednesday anything goes

We have been busy shopping for a new vehicle and yesterday we spent the day putting together Raised Garden beds and filling them with dirt, lets just say we both can feel it today that we have used some muscle we haven't used in awhile :)


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Cute animals

 When I saw the challenge over at Double D Challenge cute little animals, the first thing that I thought of was the little turtle that came in my Spellbinders Advent calendar, he is too cute and comes with the balloon and party hat so it was perfect for our little nephew turning 2 on my hubby's side of the family :) The sentiment banner comes from the advent calendar too and I like how it cuts into the banner to reveal the sentiment.


  • Spellbinders Advent Calendar dies - Turtle, balloon, party hat and sentiment banner dies
  • Spellbinders - A2 matting basics A dies
  • Sassafras - Apple Jack paper


We watched the Eclipse of the sun yesterday and was able to get some yard work done too, so no blogging for me yesterday so once again I am behind but I will be catching up with you all soon :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
