Happy May Day!

Ok, So I'm a little late with that!  Actually, I've been MIA for over a month now!  Wow how the time flies!  And I've been so busy!  Mother's Day, a Stamping event where I caught up with my friend Linda Hansen, and of course my J.O.B..  Well, so much to show, I'll just get started!

This is a card I created using STAMPIN' UP! ONLY stuff!  I know!  Can you believe it?!  And let me tell you, that was hard!  I haven't been a SU! snob for a while now, and it took some digging in my stash to find current stuff and not add some other products that weren't SU!.. But I did it!  And I did it THREE TIMES~! (gasp!  I know!:)

I love them both!  Don't just hate cutting things out?  I do!  But it does make all the difference!

So here's the recipe for the Butterfly card.
CS:  DSP Cottage Wall, Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Orchid Opulence.
Inks:  Rich Razzelberry, Orchid Opulence.
Stamp Set: Great Friend.

Blue Card:
CS:  Bordering Blue,  Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke, Ballet Blue..
Inks:  Markers, same as card stock
Stamp:  Le Jardin Botanique  Embillies are buttons, & grosgrain ribbon, and the new SAB punch.

So you may be asking, where's the third card???  Never Fear!  It is HERE!

The colors are way off on this.  I'm not sure why...could it be the rainy day we are having in NI toying with my camera?  Most likely!  It is beautiful though.  I used the Hostess level 2 set Asian Artistry and used SU! Markers and inked up the stamp.  It is really pretty!  Guess you'll have to take my word for it! ;)

These cards were created for the Stampin event I went to in Crystal Lake.  It was such a good time!  I met several great people and learned some really cool techniques!  One of my favorite was when Beckie Cox showed us how to use a fork to tie a PERFECT bow!  And let me tell you!  IT was perfect!  Maybe I'll try my hand at making a video.....maybe .  I will definitely be showing how to make it at this months Stamp Camp!

This was the same event I got to catch up with my ol friend Linda.  I first met Linda at my first and sadly only SU! convention....  And I don't even remember how long ago that was!  She is such an inspiration to me!  It was fun chatting and seeing her since her surgery.  If you have ever considered gastric by pass surgery, I highly recommend you visit Linda's blog.  Sure there will be much more than just information on her surgery!  She is a crafter, mother, grandmother, friend, successful motivational speaker, friend, and wife...you could say she's one talented, busy lady!

Well, I have so much more I should share.  But this post shouldn't take 2 hours to read and enjoy!  You'll just have to check back tomorrow to see the pretty I made this morning!

Winks & Wishes!
