Fly Free

I don't know that I have used this die very many times.  Since the challenge this fortnight at Crafting With Dragonflies was "Dies and/or Punches", I decided I needed to play with it!  I also used a butterfly punch and some butterfly 'scraps' from a border punch (I think I use the scraps more than the border).  I added some gems and drew some "stitching" around the entire thing.

Hap-Bee Birthday

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Design Challgenges the theme is "Nature and All Of It's Beauty".  There are two sponsors, Sasayaki Glitter and Kit And Clowder.  I used an image from Sasayaki glitter, being a busy busy honey bee (my call sign/email) I had to use the cute bee looking image called "The Fairy Digital Stamp".  I added glittery paper, went with blacks and yellows and added some fun string pearl.  For some reason I love to use string pearls around my image when I do bees and other flying insects...

Spring Flowers

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is "No more than 3 colors, excluding black & white".  We are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and Sheepski Designs.  Normally I use both, for some reason I did this time.  This time I only used an image from Sheepski called Jo's Daffodils.  I stuck primarily with yellow and green and added some black. I used a quilled bee and otherwise kept this fairly CAS.

Mallard Mom's Card

This card was made for my mom.  She and her friend just moved to a new place, my mom loves mallard ducks so I thought this might be fitting enough as a "house warming" card.  They have been living as snow birds in their two bedroom, two bathroom 5th wheel for the last several years and due to health reasons figured it was time to drop anchor so regular doctor appointments would be easier to get to.

This image is from QKR, it is called Mallard.  I used a corner die, some black gems, twine and some DP I found at a garage sale a while back, I am not sure, but I think it is from Stampin Up.  I used colored pencil to color the image.  I did shrink the image, flipped one and kept the other the same and used a square punch to remove the smaller ones.  This would actually kind of work well as a Mother's day card for a mom who had two kids, or a Father's day card with two kids...LOL  Maybe I should double it up and give it to her as a Mom's day card too?  I sort of suck at getting cards into the mail, this would insure she got one.  LOL
