Fluttering By with CC Designs

Man, this was so much fun to make! Took me some time though. This is my first easel card, so Tammi wasn't the last person to try it! I some how thought my paper was 8.5, when it was 11 inches long, so you should have seen me at first watching the video on SCS. My base wasn't looking like Beate's and I couldn't figure out why!

I combined a lot of challenges on this card.

Pile It On Easel card
Stamp with Fun recipe card- three flowers, three papers, two buttons.
Crazy Challenge Angel or Fairies.
Crafty Creations Paper Piecing-my little fairy on the inside is paper pieced.
All That's Scraps shape card, I hope easel works for that challenge.
For Fun Challenges April Showers May Bring Flowers, Spring, rain, or flowers.
Fab N Funky Challenges Neapolitan Ice cream.


It was also a person challenge from my friend, Debbie, who sent me some supplies to use the next time I did a big challenge card. She sent ribbons, the heart gem, and the heart brad.

I saw the pearls lined up like that with a sentiment on Sparkle's blog, and thought it looked so pretty. So, I had to case that idea.



With the kids on Spring Break I also have been working on scrapbook pages. Trying to catch up some while the crafting bug has bitten me! I got done their Halloween pages last night. Posting them for family to see. Gabi was a pretty butterfly this year, and Trey was Jango Fett. All his little friends seemed to be that this year. This baseball page is so girly, which is funny to me. But Gabi's dance group dances to Put Me In Coach, and it's a dance routine. Seems ironic to make baseball girly. I'll make sure not to show Trey, as he'll think I committed a serious crime!
Supplies: Basic Grey Bittersweet, Rose Red, Creamy Caramel cardstock, close to cocoa ink, stickles, Martha punch, copics, SU felt flowers, CC Designs, TAC sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by!
