Sketch Frenzy Friday 6/7/13

Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you well and happy!

It's another wonderful week here at Sketch Frenzy Friday. This weeks sketch was designed by our very talented Robbie Rubula. Look what she came up with. Isn't it fantastic!

I so almost went with a Star Spangled Banner card with Red, White and Blue colored card stock hehehe. I am so going to make that card for next month.

For the last few weeks we have been out in the garden a lot lately, rebuilding our New Little Patch of Dirt here in West Virginia. I get so much inspiration from Mother Nature in creating many of my cards and this week was no exception, Whether it be by the diversity of plants and flowers or seasonal landscapes, animals or insects Mother Nature is sure to delight the senses and inspire one to create. There are so many different  types of butterflies fluttering about the yard now and that is what inspired my card for this week (Lots of Butterflies). I am in awe of the variety of them here in the North East part of the US. There are so many different types than what I am used to in Calif.

Here is my card hope you like it.

This was very easy card to create. I was so glad the Bitty Banners, Little Leaves and the Beautiful Wings Big Shot items could still be purchased in our New Catalog. I chose a variety of colored card stock scraps for the banner, butterflies and the leaves. I used Basic Black ink for the sentiment and lot's and lots of glue dots.  That's all there was to it. Go outside get inspired and crate something fun. We would love to see what you come up with just go to our home page here

There have been so many FIRSTS for us since we moved to WV  Lighting Bugs are another first.  We were outside on the swing the other night and we started seeing them. I was like a kid at a 4th of July picnic. Lots of oohs and aahs. I didn't know they had them here I thought they were found only in the South? Lucky us!

Have a great week,
Chat soon.

I love what you have done. You are so talented. I just love reading what is going on in your life. Aren't lightning bugs fun? I still love sitting out on the porch watching them with Roscoe.
