Purple Plumeria

 Have you seen the new line Plumeria by Basic Grey? It is really pretty! And here is a card made with this very pretty paper. Purple has been one of my favorite colours for the past year so when I saw this line at Crop & Create, I snatched up a bunch of it.

I love how companies are creating lines that come with all kinds of page elements that match! It really takes the guess work out of trying to find matching embellishments. This sentiment sticker is also part of this line. I used a 3-D butterfly punch from EK Success and added some pearl bling.
I also saw a butterfly today in my garden so it inspired me to create this card!
Sunny days are here- hopefully to stay!!!

New Bella Blvd.

So I have not been as faithful as I had planned on being for the last 2 weeks. Between root canals, internet problems, and just the general chaos of life I have not had the time to be creative. I am not sure about this card as I put it together quickly and without a full plan in mind. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Bella's new paper line called Sunshine & Happiness. The cloud paper is my favorite and I used it here on my card. I just cut out a few of the clouds and pop dotted them. The bird is actually a sticker from My Little Yellow Bicycle Paradise collection but everything else was Bella. Hopefully tomorrow will be a more inspirational day! (especially since I have so many new products including Doodlebug!)

Sunshine on a Cold Cloudy Day

 Hope you had a very Happy Easter! I cannot believe that we went from beautiful, sunny +20 weather to cold, snowy -5 weather.......I guess that is spring in Manitoba! I made this card using the amazing Bella Blvd. products from Sunshine and Happiness. Such a cute line!

I made this centerpiece for Easter dinner. I used a glass mason jar inside a short round vase and in between the two I placed plastic eggs in various spring colours. In the mason jar is the water and tulips!
