Chasing Butterflies

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Good Morning!

I can't believe it's Wednesday already! This week has really been flying by for me. I look forward to my weekends now because of all the home projects we've got going on at the moment. Last weekend I painted the cabinet doors and main door in the bathroom a nice bright white. I replaced the hardware on the cabinetry from brushed nickel to oil rubbed bronze. It's already looking so much better than it used to! The bathroom used to look like an awkward teenager and now it's starting to look like a grown up! :) I'll share before and after pictures with you all once we're done. I can't wait!

Ok, onto today's card!

I have been itching to color up this adorable image ever since this set arrived on my doorstep! I ADORE these little bears from the Back In Ten set!! They're tooooo cute! This week I found the perfect layout to show it off with. I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch layout #104 because of the wide center panel. I watercolored in this sweet image with my reinkers and aquapainter brush, then I sponged around the edges with SU's Cool Caribbean ink. I used my Post-It note trick then I machine stitched it to some cardstock. Then I used some of Basic Grey's Green at Heart collection to bring the feeling of Spring to the card. The flower was made using Papertrey Ink's Beautiful Blooms dies, a button and PTI Rustic Button Twine.

I love the way this turned out, don't you? It's so sweet, and Springy....ahh, Spring! How I miss thee! :)

Have yourself a great Wednesday!
