Good Morning Friends!!! I just wanted to do a quick entry to say Hello and let you all know that I just started my new job on Monday. I am loving it so far. I am working in the telecommunication industry. This is way different then the banking industry.

Hello Friends!!!

I'm a little bit late with posting this entry as I have been gone all day and neglected to get this posted sooner. I just wanted to stop by and wish all of you a Happy Easter for those who celebrate it.

Here is a card I created for Swing Shift Designs:

This is a surprise pop up card I created using a vintage image from Spring 3 collage sheet. I used a blue chalk ink to distress the image. I also used a dark chocolate brown cardstock paper, a vintage white scallop lace, vintage music sheet for the background which is distressed with the Tim Holtz walnut stain distress ink. I embellished the card with a handmade lace flower (plus paper flowers), a yellow beaded stick pin, a butterfly charm, and another image of the chicks are also from the same collage sheet. The chick image is then layered with UTEE and distressed with the Tim Holtz walnut stain distress ink.

I hope you all enjoyed your day.

Thank you for stopping by.

Here is my project I created. I used the ever so beautiful Girl Flower Butterfly digi image by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff. Today's project is a lovely surprise pop up card. I am all into the interactive cards nowadays. These cards are very fun to make and quite easy to do.

I colored the digi image with Copic markers and Lumiere acrylic paints. I wanted to add a lot of variation in the image by working with both. I used a white vintage rose lace trim for the background. I cut the lace into strips and adhered it to the pastel blue cardstock. The size of the card is 5" x 6". The image is matted on a pretty aqua cardstock and adhered with pop dots. I use the pop dots in about every project I create. The embellishments I added on the card are: a vintage scallop lace trim, mulberry paper flowers, a handmade beaded stick pin, turquoise flower rhinestones, 2 small metallic butterfly stickers, stickles, and glossy accents. I finished the card by stamping the sentiment "thinking of you," from a Studio G stamp I purchased at Michaels.

Here is a close up of the image:

Hello Friends!!!

The sun is shining and it's a beautiful day here in Cali!!! It's still a little cooler than usual but still beautiful.

I just wanted to share with you a cute mail in your mailbox swap I hosted via Swap-bot. This is the envelope I sent to my partner. I ♥love♥ to decorate my mail. I try to do this as often as I can although sometimes time does not permit me to send deco envelopes out all the time.

Here are the pics:

This is the back of the envelope: What's inside of the envelope:

This is what I received from my partner:
