Black and White

Just sharing a card I created for a Black & White Only challenge. All of the products were already on my desk from previous projects so this went together in no time!!! I do not clean off my desk in between things I make. I know this sounds weird but my mojo really kicks into high gear when I'm surrounded with stamp sets, paper and accessories! When I clean off my desk, I find myself just sitting there wondering what to do! I'm sure there's a name for this condition, I just don't know what it is!!! Hahaha!!!

The challenge I mentioned above is for a Facebook group made up of SU demonstrators belonging to my upline's team. We have weekly challenges to keep the creative juices flowing.

Hello Beautiful

OK, I admit it, I am obsessed with these butterflies from the Occasions and Saleabration catalogs!!! I started with the Daffodil Delight card and decided to make one in each color of the Gingham Gala DSP. The butterflies were punched out of the Botanical Butterfly SAB (free with $50 purchase) paper using the Butterfly Duet punch and the sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set. I could have left the butterfly black & white but thought I would pull out the Stampin' Blends and add some color. I know, shocker there as I am not much of a colorer!! The blends sure do make it easy though.

If you're in need of an Occasions or Salebration catalog, please let me know. Email me at and I will get one out to you right away.
