Relaxed Bird

Ok  so I made one more for tonight! I thought I was done but saw  this easy sketch at I {heart} Sketches  and  decided to jump on it. Jade's Sparkling Butterflies and Inspiration Destination both have Anything Goes Challenges.


Finishing up one last card for tonight.  I really wanted to get the Stella Says Sketch done.  I have missed   quite a few challenges  and its time to get back in the swing of things.  I combined that sketch with the Artistic Inspirations Flag Colors challenge.  Die Cutting Divas has a use recycled materials  challenge.  I really had to think about what to use so I dug in the trash to see what I could find.  The best I came up with  was  these small scraps of burlap I had tossed.  I sprayed one white after I cut a scalloped circle out of it.  Then I sprayed a star shaped  piece red.  It's not much but I did recycle something.

Teacher Treat Box

I'm getting ready for the end of the school year.  I have several friends who are teachers and I want to give  them each a small gift  for all their hard work.  I'm not real sure what I'm  going  to put in the boxes yet  but I will come up with something.  Glitter N Sparkle  has a Red and White Challenge this week. There's not  a lot of sparkle on this box but I did use  my  crystal accents on the  apple to give it a  bit of shine. It's  just hard to see in the picture.

I've been  wanting to decorate my  Kitchen Aid  mixer for a while.  Today seemed a  good day since I was waiting for the cookies to bake.  I added this  bright red monogram mixer to the back and will add something else to the base and other  side.  Seemed like a  nice twist for the Give A Crafter a Cookie baking challenge. Also As You Like it Challenges  has a Non Card Project Challenge.  I simply love  cutting vinyl to  decorate things around my house.  My Husband says  if he  sits  still too long I will probably monogram him too.

Pink butterfly

Today I needed a  very quick birthday card and of course my  supply is  gone.  So I stuck to  simple and embossed my card with these dashing daisies and  then cut a butterfly from Waxed paper and colored it pink. A quick happy Birthday stamp and I'm done.  I love how delicate this butterfly looks cut from the wax paper.  Tuesday ThrowDown and Crafty Girls both have a die cuts Challenge.  Crafty Sentiments and Through the Craftroom Door and Inspiration Destination all have anything goes Challenges.  City Crafter has a Birthday challenge.   Clear It Out  and Paper Shelter  both have a Spring Flowers Challenge.   These butterflies have been fluttering around my desk for a while.
