Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Flutterby Wednesday


This is the card that I created for this week's 'Sparkle' challenge. The
butterfly image that I used is from my friend Stef the Glitterbabe her Blog and
Glitterbabe her Store. Stef is a former member of the Flutterby DT and she
is now designing her own digi stamps. And, you know what, she draws
them all freehand. She is an amazingly talented lady. Don't miss her
blog she has one of the most entertaining blogs out there.
Now, to make this card I also used a a picnic basket from CowTown Stamps.
My base card is gold with a purple panel. Next, comes the designer
paper panels with one of the elements cut out and pasted to the corner.
I also highlighted this piece with Glitter Gel Pens. The pretty butterfly
is colored with Copics and then colored again with Glitter Gel Pen.
I used two artifical flowers. One of the flowers has been cut in half and
glued to the back of the basket. The basket is adhered with a pop dot
in the middle to make it curve out and glue dots on the top edges and
top of the handle. Another glue dot holds down the bottom edge.
Another flower is tucked in the basket with a gem center. I like
the 3-D effect of this.

There, all done fluttering for the day. Off to the Outlet
Stores this morning and shop for shoes for my poor shoeless husband.
