I came home last night and was hit with the perfect layout for this card.  I had wanted to make an Easel Card before I needed to make them for a swap.  I was also in the process of making the Thank You cards for when my family took me out for my 50th Birthday.  I had wanted to make something more than a standard card to give them. I had the pieces colored for about a week and just kept on trying different backgrounds and it just wasn't fitting until last night and this am.

   I used Copic Markers to color the butterfly.  It is the same stamp set that I used on the spinner card earlier this month. There is some crystal effects and glitter on it also.

New Projects

I have gotten interested in some new projects that are fun and creative.  Have you heard of Row Houses?  I haven not until last month.  Below are pictures of the second ones that I have made.  Somehow I forgot to take a picture of the first ones.  They are pretty quick to make and fun at the same time.  I made these for a swap that i was in. If you click on my flickr photo stream at the bottom of the page you will see some more of the cards I have been busy making. Spring is on it's way and I enjoyed using it as a theme on this row house.

Fun Times

Wow it has been longer than I thought. I have had fun creating, swapping, and recently hiking and biking with my boys. Work is going well and keeping me very busy. Below is a spinner card that I had fun making for a friend. I had not made one of these in a long time.  The boys and I camped in Colebrook with the boy scouts and then biked 25 miles on the bike trials in Simsbury.  It felt so good to be in the outdoors without any electronics.
