About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

Bunny, Egg, Butterfly, Sketch

Hello again! Hope all is well. I know, the title of this is a bit strange. That is because I have combined 3 challenges into one very cute card:
The ladies at Flutter By Wednesday's posted this sketch as part of their challenge and of course you have to incorporate a butterfly or a fairy:
You can see in the picture my interpretation of the sketch, but the butterflies are a bit more difficult to see. Back some time ago, I wanted a background with butterflies and flowers, but didn't have exactly what I wanted, so I made my own with paper I had on hand and stamps. I had some left over, and because butterflies are springy, I used it here:


The challenge by Die Cuttin Divas was to use a bunny and the challenge by Bitten by the Bug 2, was to use any egg cut from the cricut. So, I decided to have my bunny, cut from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge, hatching out of an Easter egg, also cut from the Create a Critter 2 Cartridge.
 
The card for this is 4.25" x 11" with the 11" length folded in half of course (from Recollections). The back ground paper is from the DCWV Sweets stack. The stamps are from Stampin up (not sure of the name, sorry), Prima the Lyric Collection, and Inkadinkado Summer Collection.
The scalloped oval is from DCWV Nanna's Kids and the inner Oval is from DCWV Love & Wedding. The rest of the card was made from scraps, so I'm not really sure where they came from, though the plain colors are most likely  Recollections while the patterned paper is from DCWV I think. 
 
I am finding that challenges help me out a lot. They kind of get the creative juices flowing.
 
Anyway, hope all is well with everyone! Have a great Day!
