how was your weekend?
Get any good crafting under your belts?
Me, I can't complain, I finished up a couple cards
and went to Michaels and bought a big egg
for an upcoming project.
Oh, and did some grocery shopping, boo!!!
This is one I finished up last night:
I've got that Magnolia itch!!! Their Easter images are just the sweetest things to grace this planet, and boy oh boy, they are a dream to colour up!! So I used Tilda with Lamb from last years Hoppy Easter release and a Chasing Butterflies background, along with Magnolia paper from the Yummy for your Tummy collection. I cut the background out with an oval Nesties and placed it on a fabric doily and cut Tilda and her friend out and placed them out in the front of the hilltop.
The flowers are a mix of Prima and WOC, the gem stems are from The Dollar Tree and of course, you spotted that Doohickey vine there. The butterflies were made using a Martha Stewart punch, and they've got little globs of Liquid Pearls in their centers. The lace and ribbon are from my stash.
For my sentiment, I used one of these great Postage Stamp sentiments with coordinating Shapeology die cut from Whimsy Stamps by the amazing Ann Vento of Raindrop Echo Designs. I stamped it onto Kraft paper, cut it out, distressed it, wrinkled it and popped a stark white butterfly on it!! Just a little bit of earthy brown to bring us back in from the clouds.

My best cousin for life Kristen
is flying in from California this week,
so I have to fast-track my spring-cleaning
in hopes that she'll think it's always nice and clean
in my house....
3 kids, 3 cats, a husband, living on a dirt road.....
in windy Kansas... it's NEVER clean for long!!
