One weekend- Three seasons!

The last few days I’ve spent many hours playing in my craft room. Ended up making cards for several challenges that spanned Spring, Summer, and Winter.

I love seeing butterflies flittering in my flower garden. They are a sign of spring to me! This card is for the TicTacToe challenge at CAS-ual Fridays. I selected the top row: butterfly, single layer, and stripes. (PS I love my white gel pen for adding swirls and swooshes onto butterfly wings, etc.)

My summer card is my second entry into Poppy Power’s current challenge-“Copy a Bloomie” i.e. their design team members. This one was inspired by the talented Christine Okken! (Her card has the cute little elephant on it.) 
I wanted to add a bit more color to the card so put a layer of orange vellum over the lettered white background paper. Gave it a whole different look. Plus... I love vellum!

The third card is was made for we craft card’s mid-week challenge that required the use of brads. Gave me a good reason to clean out my embellie drawer, where I found a treasure trove of brads.

  1. Kathy, you certainly had a wonderful time stamping and made so many cards. And what a delight to see a Christmas card...Christmas in July! I love the butterflies in your first card, and the white gel pen definitely does beautiful swirls. What a great CASE of Christine's card. She used a great layout, and I love how you used it. I love your Christmas card with the beautiful shades of green and tag! I smiled when I read about your embellishments. Don't we have so many after stamping so many years? Ha! Hugs!
