Hello friends, today I used more of the papers and fabric gifted to me by Lisa and digitals from Cheran. On page one after adhering some paper snippets I added today's calendar page which fits right in with it's cute little knitted doll. I also added some stiching to the calendar page. Then scrunched and stitched the sheer fabric into a loose bow.
Page two was a magazine pocket made by Lisa, inspired by Darcy that only needed to be shortened by half an inch. It holds a journal card note that Lisa wrote. And to finish I added the statue. As time goes by I may add a few embellishments but for now these two pages are done.
Thanks for looking,

Hello, I've been wanting to pair my photos with coordinating gel prints for awhile now. So while taking some photos of the fresh green growth around the yard I thought why not do some botanical prints of ferns that grow here.
Bracken fern on the front cover.
I also hope to add several more types as soon as I find them.

Hello friends! Spring is on it's way and I'm celebrating with the beautiful new Butterfly Brilliance bundle from Stampin' Up! I find it fascinating that the gorgeous butterfly stamp images in this set are sketched from actual exotic butterflies from around the globe. Did I mention I love butterflies. :)
I made a DIY stamp from a scrap of craft foam torn to size to give it a more organic shape and a die from the Butterfly Wings dies.
I then used it to stamp with Just Jade on the small mandala paper from the Butterfly Bijou DSP giving another layer of visual dimension to the 3-1/4 x 2-1/4 tag. I completed the tag by adding Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and adhering with Stampin' Dimenionals.
For embellishment I cut the butterfly out of the Butterfly Bijou DSP with the coordinating Butterfly Wings die. Gave it some shaping and added Wink of Stella glitter pen to the wings. I adhered the body only of the butterfly leaving the wings free.
I used a sweet sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamped in Just Jade on White CS to match and also adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. To complete I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.
I leave you today with a photo of some Snow Drops, the first flowers of the year in my garden.
I wish you all a creative week with thanks for stopping by.

It's time for another Card Chain Challenge share. Today's card is on its way to Suze in New Zealand. I am finding this one a bit funny as I went with the polar bear / winter scene and it's headed to full on Summer at the opposite end of our world. Sending Suze a sampling of the winter weather we endured with the Polar vortex. ;)
