Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Good Morning Bloggers! I'm so happy you stopped by to visit today. Come on in and take a look around, stay as long as you'd like!
My craft room is set up with one very small corner for my husband...or whoever wants to visit. He stops by occasionally to have a cup of coffee or play a game on his laptop. Last week, I was doing what I do on line when he came to visit. I was looking at the Sizzix line when he asked me about the Sizzix Love Letters. I told him I already had those and he asked me if I used them...well...NO...not yet. I guess I was feeling kinda guilty so I thought I would put them to use and I cut the letters out. They have laid around for more than a week, but I must have picked them up a zillion times to "do something" with them. I would start something and my mind would go blank so I would set them aside. I was spending WAY to much time with these and was getting SO tired of looking at them that I decided TODAY is the day, I was going to do something with them right or wrong and be done with them once and for all! So here it is---
I stamped the Inkadinkadoo butterfly image twice on designer paper then heat embossed them using silver embossing powder. I cut one of the butterflies out and pop dotted it on the image that I cut out and layered on a circle/scallop Nestibility that I used a gel pen to dot the scallops. I added a ribbon knot and put that on a piece of designer paper and put in on the background layer. The letters were cut from Sizzix Love Letters twice offset them to give a shadow effect, put them on a piece of designer paper then on a band and adhered it it the background layer. There...I'm done with it, I don't have to look at it anymore and now can play with the order I received yesterday!
Thanks for stopping by, take a moment to leave me a comment to let me know you were here! Have a great day and I'll see you tomorrow!

Another fabulous card! Nothing like a little prodding to use something that's been sitting in a drawer for a bit, huh? Love the embossed image!
