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.

Butterfly Card

Well, I think my creativity is drying up, or maybe I am just in a funk. Usually, I can come up with a card in no time, this time it took me almost 24 hours to come up with something. This card is for the challenge at Flutter By Wednesday's. The challenge was to use blue, green, and yellow, and of course a butterfly or fairy. Here is what I have made:
This is a 5x5 card. The papers are from recollections. The flower is hand made. I really do think it turned out pretty cute. The sentiment says, "It's the little things that make life Big."

Hope you like it!  Have a wonderful day!
