Black and White Butterflies Silhouette Cards

The week's challenge is almost coming to an end!

I wanted to put in one more ounce of muscle with these cards. They're really quick and simple to make actually. The paper is from DCWV's La Creme Matstack and the butterflies were just die cut in different sizes. I dabbed a bit of Versamark Dazzle Ink on them to give them a bit of a sparkle, but not too much. That's it!

This was also entered in the April Paper Crafts Connection Challenge.

Going to a comedy show in a few minutes in Long Island City. Hope I don't get picked on! :D

Have a great weekend!

Feel Better Soon Quilled Yellow Flowers Handmade Card

Hope you're having a great evening!

I made an uplifting card that can be given to those who aren't feeling their best. A little love and care can go a long way in helping someone along a speedy recovery.
This card features 2 yellow quilled flowers. The centers were made with green and yellow quilling paper and dotted with metallic gold paint. Leaves are a turquoise-colored paper.
 "Feel better soon" sentiment was wet embossed on heavy card stock.
Flourishes are rub-on stickers and are dotted with glitter in select areas.
Tuesday Alchemy's new challenge is coming up soon! Stay tuned because this week will be a sponsored challenge! Info to come!

Have a great night!

Facebook Food List Challenge 100 Foods to Eat Before You Die

So I finally decided to take the Food List Challenge--100 Foods to Eat Before You Die on Facebook and I got a 65 out of 100! I don't drink alcohol, eat spicy stuff, or dairy so I'd say this is probably close to the max I can cover on this list. It probably helps a lot that I am surrounded by so many ethnic foods.

By the way, I am so confused about the whole blogspot new interface thing! Where is everything?!

The week is still young! Enter your crafts in Tuesday Alchemy's spring theme challenge! :)
