Butterfly Bag and Card

Hi Everyone,

I friend at work is retiring, so I made her this darling bag and matching card. I put Hershey kisses in the bag but some of us chipped in and got her a gift certificate to a nice restaurant.

Aren't these butterflies gorgeous? They are the thinlits from Stampin' Up. I just love them. I added pearls to them. The card is embossed. The bag has doilies on each side and I used the oval punch for handles. I put a piece of white card stock across so that the butterfly would stand out. After the fact, I should have embossed it the same as the card, but that's ok. I tied a piece of jute ribbon with hemp. I added a tiny pearl to the i on the sentiment.

Father's Day Card from a Sketch

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project. I joined a sketch challenge and decided that I would post my finished card for my project. I thought I would make mine a Father's Day card, seeing that it is Sunday.

For my card, which is a 3 1/2" x 5" base in whisper white card stock, I embossed a piece of chocolate card stock which is cut at 3" x 4" and the patterned paper which is cut at 2 3/8" x 3 1/2". The tag was made using the scallop tag punch. The ribbon is Early Espresso and the sentiments are from Sheltering Tree and Teeny Tiny Wishes. All the products used are from Stampin' Up.

I'm so glad that we are in the "KISS" (Keep it simple sassy) season because I am finding it hard to get creative. 

Thank you so much Sheila for having me and thank you all for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.
