Grow Your Wings


Hello Friends 

I hope you all had a good week. It is getting hot here in upstate New York. I think we went from winter to summer in the space of a week. It was 82 yesterday yikes!! Anyway I have some really good news that I want to share with you but I will do that in a bit. Let's get to my card first.

I bought this stamp last week in the Unity Birthday sale another butterfly to add to my collection :) I really love the sentiment GROW YOUR WINGS. I kept this card pretty simple I used Kraft card and white embossing powder 2 of my favourite combinations. I heat embossed  the butterfly on the card then cut out a separate one and glued it on top to give it a 3 dimensional look. I stamped a swirl flourish on opposite corners. One set I made white with the embossing powder the other side I left plain with just the Versamark ink.  I mounted it on to a white card base then added some tiny pearls and the card was complete.

Now on to my Happy news I am super excited about this :) I got a craft magazine in the mail the other day. I thought it was strange as I don't subscribe to any. I flicked through the pages and guess who was in the magazine?? ME :) Remember my vellum luminaries I made last year?? If you don't you can have a look at my original blog post here. Well they made it into the July edition for Scrap & Stamp Arts :) I am super excited my very FIRST publication. I had emailed the editor months ago and was asked to write a how to on how to make them. I did not hear anything back. So I thought that they were no longer interested in using them. So you can imagine how surprising it was for me to get the magazine and see my luminaries in there. The magazine should be in stores this week if it's not already :)



Thanks so much for visiting  xox
