Teapot Tuesday, Bella Blvd and May Arts

Apologies to my email readers for the late post...DH's week to go in to work later in the day means my posting doesn't get done at night or early in the a.m.  I'm also prepping for my weekend away...lots to do so little time it seems.

Another combo post for you today.  First up...exciting news!  May Arts and Bella Blvd. are bringing you an exciting blog week with lots of giveaways, projects and fun.

Want a sneak peek of what you can win?

and how about a side of ribbon to go with that?



Yummy, right?  Head on over the May Arts blog to find out how to win it and then head to Bella Blvd. for the yummy giveaways there as well.   I'm not sure what day my project will be up but I will give you a heads up when I see it.  I had soooo much fun!

This week's Teapot Tuesday card is heading to Emmit, Idaho and Linda who has had to have nearly all the vertebrae in her spine fused after a fall.  Linda's friend, Leigh Grady, has designed a free digital image that she's sharing for anyone who wants to make a card for Linda.  Linda loves cats and butterflies.  I have dubbed my creature a Caterfly.  :-)



He's a big bold kitty with big bold colors.  I gave him some softness on his belly and feet with a bit of flower soft.  He's popped up on dimensionals.  Hope he brings Linda a smile.

I also made this card for the OLW47 challenge this week hosted by Jennifer challenge this week.  Believe it or not, it took me 3 tries to get that image straight in the embossed square.  Still not sure I like it but it's done.



I used a Spellbinders Square die to emboss the center then stamped the image from SU Gently Falling in Versamark Brilliance Sky Blue ink...it has a bit of shimmer to it that's really soft and pretty.

Last but not least, I received this sweet award from kind Peggy.  She calls herself the Nutty Cardmaker but I think she's all sweetness.


Thanks Peggy...be sure to pop over and show Peggy some love.  She's in the far North in Canada and a regualr on SCS.
Pin It!

Oh, I Love that card! I'm a big fan of pretty much anything blue and white. It's just gorgeous!
