Violets Birthday

I felt like coloring yesterday.  It's very therapeutic and relaxing, which is good, because this took forever!

Welcome, Summer!

It is about that time...Time to make about a million teacher thank-you cards.  This year I've decided to use the new Flip Flop dies from PTI.  LOVE them!  Here is my attempt at a beachy vignette in two color versions:

Last one for Gallery Idol

Okay, here's my last one.  I think it's my favorite.  A few months ago, I was in Ikea, and I saw a framed picture of some cut-out flying birds, and of course I thought, "I could make that".  So I did.  The middles of the butterflies are not quite punched out, and I found that the best way to do that was to leave one punched butterfly in the die when running through my Cuttlebug.  Make sense?

More Gallery Idol Attempts

Here are two versions of another attempt at Gallery Idol.  Half-Pint Heroines from WMS again.  Love this set!  A little creative masking with the arm stamps from Half-Pint Heroes, and voila!  She's holding the elephant.

(I also added a comma, because I'm a stickler like that...Thank Mrs. Dann and my 7th grade English class.)
