Just the 2 of them! Anniversary cards & dessert

Here are three anniversary cards I made for my 3 sisters. I also made them strawberry shortcake to celebrate. Sorry that the last Pear card is so blurry - I had forgot to photograph it before i sent it and my BIL used his i-phone.

Nature's Beauty

Today at my house there were 6 beautiful Yellow Swallowtail Butterflies. I could only capture on camera five of the six - i guess one was being camera shy! My dog was quite intrigued by them too.

**Edited to note : I have done a little research and these beauties are called Yellow Swallowtail Butterflies.

Mother's Day cards

I have been madly busy for weeks- not alot of crafting time has been had. Also been ill (yes still) on top of things and havent had energy for much of anything until yesterday So here are couple Mother's Day cards i created using. sugar and spice for the scallop circle, a paper punch for the circle and Recollections metal butterflies - inked with Staz on and then added UTEE - they came out really nice. The other cards were similar in shape but one i just used the MS 3 butterfly punch and stickles. The last card I used some Paula Deen powdered sugar stencils (Michaels .60 cents for 5 designs) and just used chalk ink and sponges. At the moment i dont recall what cart i used for the round card shape - sorry. Thanks for taking a look.
