Happy Spring

Good Morning...Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoy your visit. I've done something a little different and a little outside of my comfort zone but had so much fun! You remember when I asked for a BossKut Gazelle for Christmas, then when it came, I whined til my husband gave in and let me have it early, only to use it once or twice, got frustrated and just about threw it out the window...Well on the suggestion of my fearless leader Regina I decided to give it another try. Here's what I created with it and you know was simple with the aid of The Cutting Cafe Butterfly Template. Not to worry if you don't have a BossKut, Pazzles or other cutting machine, the file comes in a PDF file as well. I also did something new for me, stitching and while I'm OK with it, I wish I would have run the stitches all the way to the upper outer edge of the butterfly but glued it in place before I had a chance to see what it looked like...oh well, next time I'll know better---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: Base card measures 5.5" x 4"
Template: Cutting Cafe Butterfly Template
Nestibilities/Spellbinders: Petite Oval/Scallop
Cuttlebug: With Love Embossing Border Set, Babyface Alphabet
Sizzix: Phrase-Spring Flowers, Flower & Flourish #2
Accessories: Glitter, Flat Back Pearls, Embroidery Floss, Foam Pop Dots

Now how quick and easy is that? That's all I've got for you today. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to set your clocks ahead this weekend as we enter Daylight Savings Time. Woo Hoo...I LOVE it...I don't care if we do lose an hour, it's great to have the daylight in the evening! Have a fabulous weekend...Hope to see you on Monday!!

Oh, my I in awe! You beat me to this template. I just love it.

I whined for my Gazelle, too and may still give it a toss...grrrr. Regina is such a help but it's soo much smarter than I am and that's not good.
