All Things Grow with Love and April CARDS


Tuesday greetings, friends!!  Today’s card is just me messing around with some dies and paper :)  No challenge, no official duties, just good ol’ fashioned playtime.  (however, if you know of a challenge, let me know! lol).  I have been saving this piece of Cosmo Cricket paper since the March Verve Release…it’s the last big piece of this particular paper…I just love the colours and vintage feel of it.  I picked out the aqua on it as my doily colour and went to town with my PTI Parisian doily die…I’m slowly getting used to plucking out the little bits of paper!  LOL  I’ll leave you with the 2 cards I had published in the April CARDS magazine…like last month, I have an interesting little story about one of the cards…you’ll notice a sweet little butterfly button on the first card, but it’s not there in the magazine.  When I was carefully packaging up the card last Fall, the button snapped in half.  I tried to glue it back together, but in vain.  So if you look at the magazine, you’ll just notice a pretty round purple button! ACK!  The second card has special meaning as it was a card I submitted for an Embellish magazine challenge, but sadly, it wasn’t “HOT.”  LOL!!  I love the sentiment…it inspires me to just do my own thing with card making and love the process and see the beauty in all we (everyone of us) create.  Have a fabulous day!!

Three beauties, Moe! That butterfly on the published one is a complete stunner, but it looks lovely with the purple button as well. The paper you saved is fabulous and you did an awesome job with the doily & amplifying the blue. Those birds on cards really make me think of you!

Darling set of cards. I think picking the paper bits out of that doily die would drive me nuts LOL! Good TV watching job I guess :)

LOVE that butterfly button and sad to hear it didn't make it, but thankfully you had a purple button to sub in. Love all the white space on that card too :) Cute last card as well. I finally got that bird punch so can't wait to use it.

I love the sentiment on your last card and the font. Of course, all of your cards are gorgeous Moe!
