Sweet Sympathy Butterfly Card

This is my THIRD card this week. What has gotten into me? Hehehe, just am enjoying playing in my craft room too much! Maybe I better put this energy into my laundry....naw, I'd rather play with paper!  I wanted to finally try a sketch challenge (I have been chicken about this) and I found it made making decisions SO much easier!  So, I guess I will try more.  This sketch is from a Challenge at The Sweetest Thing - Sweet Sunday Sketch #154.  Here is my interpretation of it:

 My wonderful Cuttlebug was very useful for this card as I used two different folders-the Swiss Dots, and the little flowers that came with my bug.  Paper by  Cloud 9 (love the stripe); my own crinkle ribbon in Hint of Pesto and Versa Magic ink.  The Stripe ribbon and flat lace are from my odds and ends box, The beautiful butterfly is from K & Company.  This card is entered in the following challenges:
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Ch#160 - Lace and Scallops 
(There are scallops on the lace, Promise!)
 I am looking forward to Spring.  The weather has been in the 60's here this week and my little spring flowers are starting to bud.  Soon my daffodils will be up...Ahhh bring on Spring!

Feminine St. Patty's Day

Well, as promised, here is the 'other' St. Patty's Day card.  I went a different direction with this one and wanted a softer, feminine card.  It's for my sweet sister whose Anniversary is also the day before St. Patrick's Day.  Hope you like it:

I love the background paper on this one, it is from K & Company, and I must admit I hoard it and save every little scrap, I love it!  I also used Kraft paper, the green is a Jim Holtz & Ranger paper.  Also used a small heart punch for the shamrock, Versamagic Ink in gingerbread, Recollection Pearls and boarder punch, my own crinkle ribbon in pumpkin spice and the font is Chisel.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
  This is the end of  St Patrick Day cards for this year. Everyone have a good one and don't forget to wear GREEN!!  I am always happy to have new followers  and I adore the ones I do have!  HUGS!

St. Patty's Day

WOOHOO, I finally got a couple of  St. Patrick's Day Cards done! I have really been ignoring my craft room lately and that just HAS to STOP!!  I wanted to make a card from some of the St. Patrick's Day Printables I have found around the web and here it is.

I think it turned out kinda cute considering I used printables.  The Banner and Hat printables are from, Paper from Coredinations, Baker's Twine in Charcoal and Peapod, Black organza ribbon, Metal dots and tiny rhinestones from Heidi Grace, Versamagic ink in midnight black, Shamrocks on the inside from Recollections, two silver metal eyelets, and the font I used is Chisel.  Easy huh!  Putting the banner together was the hardest thing I did.  I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Hope you all are having a GREAT St. Patty's Day week and party with the green come Saturday!
Here's wishing you only Pinches of Love!!!  Thanks for stopping by!
