Tea tray



Hi
I know this is not a card but it turned out so well I wanted to share. 
Two years ago when we were visiting our friends in B.C. they were having their kitchen back splash changed.  I fell in love with the tiles and asked for some of the scraps.  Well it took me two years to do because I hadn't found the right tray.  When I finally found the right tray it came just in time because they visited yesterday and I was able to give it to them.  The tiles aren't blue but when the light hits them a certain way they change colors.  I think they are gorgeous.  If you are able to click on the picture you will see some very pretty colors that aren't visible otherwise. 
Have a Blessed day.

Simple note card

Hi,
There was one more corner left of the dp from the other two cards and it was just the right size for a note card so here it is.
Have a Blessed day.

Faux cloissone butterfly

Hi
I loved the faux cloissone look that I saw on Split Coast Stampers awhile ago (a long while back ) and so tried it and the butterfly has been sitting in the P.O.T.D. along with the cut glass picture  so I decided to marry the two.  The folder has a cut out in the center so the inside of the card is covered with another piece of card and I made the card with a hinge.  I am not entirely happy with the card but I think the butterfly is gorgeous.
Have a Blessed day.

Poppy and dream catcher



Hi
From the P.O.T.D. (pile on the desk) comes this petal of one of my last years poppies that I pressed.  The dream catcher is an old earring and the gold is foil with an embossing folder.  The envelope is done with the envelope punch board.  Pretty straightforward.  As usual, the sentiment will be added when needed.  Most of the cards will be using up different elements that have been laying around on the P.O.T.D. and when that is cleared maybe I will have some newer ideas. 
Have a Blessed Day.

Velvety looking butterfly

Hi,
For many of you who follow me you have seen this butterfly many times in different styles and you will, no doubt, see it many more times because I think it is absolutely gorgeous.  Again, it is printed on heavy cardstock and covered in mod podge for a bit of sheen.  I have been trying to use a lot of my prints for small note cards.  Instead of chocolates or flowers I use a pack of 4 note cards to say Thank You to the people who have been caring for Jim in hospital all these months. 
Have a Blessed day.

Elegant

Hi,
If you saw the post before this one and before the rose one you can see that this is another part of the gorgeous dp.  For this one I used the trusty envelope punch board and used up some more of my extra papers. 
Have a Blessed day.

Rose note card

Hi,
So pretty and so delicate.  I believe this came from Maxam Made who so generously shared with all of us.  It is just a note card and the envelope was lined with the same rose.  For some reason I forgot to photograph it. 
The rose was printed on nice heavy cardstock and then I used mod podge to cover it and give it a bit of sheen.  The envelope liner was just printed on regular typing paper. 
Have a Blessed day.
