Am definitely beginning to feel the effect of too much chocolate over Easter, just need to find the will power now to do something about it....problem is that I seem to have great intentions then end up watching The Biggest Loser whilst chomping down on a block of chocolate!?!?!Hmnnnn...

I have been busy creating heaps of things for classes and SIA and thought I would post some more creations. Am excited about going down to SIA. I am also attending a Copic Certification class whilst there and can't wait!!!

This is one of my favourite cards I have made over the past few months. It was made for the February Card Kit and whilst my photo doesn't do it justice the Stampendous Fresh Bloom Flower is painted with a gorgeous shimmery bronze and overlayed with an Antique Stain paper glass with a tiny bit of bronze glitter added before drying. The effect is glossy and shimmery and a lot of fun to do!

Challenge: To show my blog some love and make up for past neglect.

Action: Post a minimum of 2-3 times a week ( prefferably with witty banter and/or awe inspiring projects)

Hmmn I am not sure how I will do on the witty banter or the fabulous projects but at least I can focus on the actual posting part - once I have that accomplished I can be justified in spending some time prettying up the surroundings. Whilst this is my own personal blog there will be plenty of info and updates from the store too!

Anyways to kick of proceedings I thought I would post some cards I created for our recent Cuttlebug class. The top card uses one of my most favourite stamps from Stampendous - Beautiful Butterflies. along with one of my other loves - coredinations card stock!

This card uses the divine Martha Stewart Pop up Butterfly punch....we just can't keep this punch on the shelves!!!

And finally I am loving the creativity the collage technique allows...almost as much as I love distress inks!!! The butterflies were made with the Spellbinders Shapeabilities die and red embossing mats

Well I did it!!! I finally posted! Just have to make sure I do it again sometime this decade!!
