. . . addicted to flowers.  I've mentioned before that I don't garden . . . sadly, I can't actually keep a house plant alive.  I'm not an outdoor girl, and yet nature stuff is my favorite and dominates my collection of stamps more than any other category.  Some folks get sick of flowers; I think they're whacked, of course. *hair flip*


I love die-cutting our butterflies from vellum card stock, and by golly, I've finally found a way to glue them onto my card without the adhesive showing, by using the MonoAqua Liquid Glue!  I've tried lots of other adhesive in the past and was never really satisfied because they always showed, but this stuff doesn't! Keen!

*monkey clapping*

Are ya' glad it's Friday? I'm looking forward to some time in the studio, and to making a special dinner for my daughter and my son-in-law; the Navy is shipping him out for 6 months.  I know they get fed . . . but nothing ever tastes as good as a home-cooked meal, prepared for you by the people that love you.

Have a gooder weekend!

  1. How did this one slip past me?! LOVE it so much!! Pretty, pretty and more pretty!!

  2. That card is SO awesome!

    I’m like you, I can’t keep a plant alive. I try. I used to be great with outdoor and indoor plants, but since becoming a mom 7 years ago, I lost my green thumb.

  3. You and I have that in common Julie! I LOVE flowers and all things green, but I can’t grow anything to save my life! These thumbs are SO not green, but inky nonetheless ;) Your card is so striking! Love that white butterfly on the white base! Just gorgeous!

  4. your cards are so pretty and simple, love them. Thanks for stopping by my blog. First time visiting here, will be back for sure. Your posts are fun to read.
