Welcome to my new blog. I'm excited to have finally become a blogger. It may take me a while to figure it all out, but I'm sure the journey will be fun.

Today was the sketch challenge on SplitCoastStampers. I used my new stamp set 'But I need it' from Hanna Stamps.

I stamped the image on whisper white card stock and colored it with SU markers and paper pieced the dress with the same paper that I used across the card.

Card recipe:

Stamps: everyday flexible phrases - SU, But I need it - Hanna Stamps

Paper: whisper white, chocolate chip, old olive, taken with teal (SU), Basic Grey Phoebe paper

Ink: jet black stazon, chocolate chip

Accessories: chocolate grosgrain ribbon, brads, word window punch

Thanks for stopping by.

Congrats on your new blog. I'll be checking it out regularly because I really like your style. You certainly chose the perfect name for it. Everytime I see a butterfly on a card, I think of you. As far as lilacs go, it is the one flower I really miss smelling. They don't grow lilacs in Florida.

Congrats on your new blog. I've admired your work over at SCS and was looking through your gallery when I found the link to your blog. You really do some amazing cards.
This is a great card. I love this new set. Wish I could find somewhere in Canada to get it.
Have fun with your blog.
