Lilly and Billy, Queen goes Green, and a butterfly

Edited to add that Queen and Co is going Green! Queen and Co is one of my favorite lines of eye candy! Check out the info on their blog! They have some fun new stuff coming from the peaks on the blog!

I made this Lilly and Billy card with Pink Cat Studio stamps, because they were calling for snow in our area yesterday! We hardly ever get snow. All the local schools were out too, because the weather man said we were gonna have 3-5 inches! Guess how much we got-nothing, nada, zip! Crazy sad! I was so looking forward to snow!

Back to the card, I first learned about Pink Cat Studios from Debbie. I hadn't heard of Lilly and friends, and she'd asked for dress up Lilly because I was her secret sister. My, when I saw the images online when I ordered for her, I thought they were darling! I just got myself my own PCS set this month! I picked this winter fun set because it had a boy and a girl in the images. Having a daughter and a son, they fit me just right! I think the new V-day set is too cute too!

Anyhow, PCS had issued a challenge to make a card with pink, sparkle, and a critter. Here's my card for that challenge. Coarse having two kids, I colored them to look sorta like my own. I had fun with Billy, because I gave the chap freckles. My son is full of freckles. I tell him that's where the sun kisses him! I added glitter to some fun flock which add sparkle to it. I paper pieced her jacket, and filled in some of their snow with shimmerz.

Supplies:SU Cert. celery cardstock, Ridinghood Red cardstock, DCWV Glitter Christmas stack, SU corner punch, stickles, shimmerz silver bells, fun flock, Martha Stewart Snowflake punch, lyra water color crayons, snowflake from Target.

Today is Flutterby Wed on Danni's blog. I was looking thru my TAC catty for my MIL today, who was looking at stamps, cuz they're still 50% off T-code stamps. I saw Forever Family in the catty again, and thought I really wanted to ink it up, since I hadn't yet. Than I went digging thru my stamps looking for butterflies. I pulled out Priceless from SU. I thought the butterfly image went perfectly with the circle stamp from the TAC. Than one of those freaky wow, that goes great together moment happen-I don't get those too often!. I pulled PTI's Berry Bliss paper/ink. There was a small swap of paper left over from the SU scallop punch on my desk from a card I made recently sitting by the cardstock. They looked so good together, I wanted to use that paper. I'm digging around all my packs of paper trying to figure out what pack it came from, no luck. So, next best thing, look at the card to figure it out. Well, the card was gone too. I'm the worst at cleaning up my desk, but honestly, this stuff can't be that hard to find! I than grabbed the DCWV Sweet stack which was at the front of my drawer, and with the back to me, and it was part of that stack! Yippie! I thought this striped sheet looks perfect with Berry Bliss. That filled in the need for another color, because it worked perfectly with Apricot appeal!

Supplies: SU scallop punch, ribbon Joann's, PTI Berry Bliss paper/ink, TAC Forever family, SU Priceless, DCWV Sweet stack, SU Apricot Appeal ink pad, stickles, gems.

You know, it's just not fair that they tease you with a "few flakes" of snow, let school out and then...nothing! Dang! Two really cute cards Anna, that's not the set with the girl and snowman is it, that's the one I want to get. Anyway, enjoy LOST!!! You KNOW I will be!! :)

Hey Anna,
I'm in Wisconsin - I can send you truckloads if you like :) It's dog chest high in my yard (about 2 feet).

I love those snow angels - especially the pup making one - too cute!

The butterfly card is really pretty too! Thanks for sharing!
