A couple things have happened to me recently. The 1st is that I won and have received my first blog candy from Touched by a Butterfly. After my initial joy, I felt an overwhelming feeling of GUILT! I felt like I had just taken advantage of this super nice woman who had sent me all these truly amazing things. People is this a normal reaction! My family finally convinced me that I was being a little dramatic.
Upon receiving this award I must thank the person who gave this to me and link it back to their blog and share 8 things about myself. Also, pass along the award to 8 other individuals that I have recently discovered, and leave a comment so that they can pass along the recognition.

First I've determined that I must have the longest design process ever! It takes me a very long time to take a card idea from my head and to create it in paper. It took me one week to design this sympathy card for a card swap sponsored by a local craft store. The requirements for the swap were: 1) Design a sympathy card. 2) use a flower. The card is a basic A2 card, sentiment is a digi-stamp from Rain Drop Echo Designs which was actually perfect. The flower, I made using Flower #10 from the Forever Young cartridge, I cut eight layers using 3 different sizes, squished them, connected them with a brad, and inked the edges. Background paper is MME "Best of Damask", embossed using my cuttlebug w/ the twirls and swirls folder (I think that's the name). I think if I changed the sentiment it could easily work as a wedding card. Thanks for visiting.
