Pixie Cottage Challenge #76

I'm baaaaack! :)  It has been a busy month with my task list.  My craft space looks like a bomb went off and it's kind of migrated out into out bedroom

I have some happy news...I am now on The Pixie Cottage Design Team!  The weekly challenges are always fun, with two parts, a sketch and a theme.  You can combine them or choose one part.  This week's theme is Strawberries and Cream.   I followed the sketch and went with more muted reds and pinks for my card.  I colored Spring Time Hannah with Butterflies using Copics and Prismacolors.  Cut the image out with SB Labels Eleven, and the matte is Grand Labels Eleven.  I used three different Martha Stewart butterfly punches.

A couple other challenges:
Flutter By Wednesdays - Butterfly, fairy or angel.
Craft Your Passion - Seeing red.
Truly Scrumptious - Things with wings

Stamps:  Spring Time Hannah with Butterflies, sentiment from Verve "Fairy Tales".
Paper:  Basic Grey Two Scoops, The Paper Studio CS
Ink:  Memento, Colorbox Queues.
Extras:  Spellbinders Labels Eleven, Grand Labels Eleven, and Scalloped Rectangles, MS butterfly punches, Stardust Stickles, foam tape, corner punch.

Proud, Absent and Busy!

It's been a few weeks since I posted anything.  The summer has gotten busy with projects I've been asked to do and I haven't been able to make individual cards lately.  My biggest news is my son's graduation from high school on June 4.  Here is a picture of him and his girlfriend after graduation.  He looks so happy!  I am so proud of my "baby"!  He is now amongst the ranks of those seeking full-time employment, though he is still holding down his part-time job he had since his junior year in high school.

So here's a brief list of projects I'm working on that are keeping me out of trouble.  Well, sorta.   :)
