Hello from Arizona! I am at my parents house in Yuma, Arizona and the weather has been gorgeous in the 80's since I have arrived. For those of you who do not know my father has the beginning of Alzheimer's and colon cancer and my mother has the beginning of dementia and pretty significant neuropathy in her feet which causes her to stumble a lot. My father will be 89 in a few weeks and my mother will turn 86. They also will be celebrating their 68 wedding anniversary in July. Can you imagine being married 68 years. Oh my gosh, that just amazes me how lucky I really am and they are my best friends. When I get home I will tell you about my adventure in Mexico with my parents!! It's a story for one of the books! Any how they are doing remarkable good and still own and maintain their own home. Life is good!
The twelve of March was started another Belles 'n Whistles Challenge and sure hope you will play along with us! This is my second month as a guest designer and I am loving it! The theme is butterflies which is one of my favorites. A large amount of my creations have a butterfly in one fashion or another so I was super happy! My card was created using the image "Flowers" from the Sweet Art Ebony Collection. Isn't she sweet!! I totally enjoy coloring any of Elisabeth Bell creations rather it be Belles 'n Whistles, SCACD collections, Whiff of Joy or the new collections at Whimsy Stamps. I would buy all of them if I could! Does this card not scream springtime!! I cannot complain about the winter though. Maryland literally had no snow this year except for 2 days under an inch. Awesome year!
Paper: Spring Feast by First Edition: I love First Edition paper pads for each one comes with 16 different designs, 4 sheets of each, 8 have glitter w/effects and 8 are double sided! Did you know that Oozak.com has the largest selection of paper pads at the most reasonable price, over 240 different paper pads to choose from.. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. The grass was created using a memory box die. Love, love Memory Box which will be in Oozak's store real soon at the best prices ever!
Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to come play at the Belles 'n Whistles challenge!!
