brighten your day!

today i am showing a birthday card made for aarons school teacher who has her birthday tomorrow ~for this card i followed the fab sketch on JUST MAGNOLIA, the theme on MAGNOLIA DOWN UNDER ~"flutter by butterfly" and also SECRET CRAFTER ~"glitter". ~well just covers my fave things ~magnolia stamps, butterflies and glitter ~so as you can guess i just loved making this card.
used K&CO butterfly paper, magnolia butterfly back ground , tilda and flowers , hero arts word stamp, quickutz butterfly die (in card and vellum), cuttlebug stylized flowers embossinf folder on vellum, stamin`up scalloped edged punch, on vellum, flowers and brads from my stash. finished with lots of glitter.
thought you could see the glitter better close up!!

well quick in and out again today ~so much to do so little time!! hope you are enjoying some sunshine and time to see the flowers!!

How can I enjoy the sun when it's hidden behind the heavy rainclouds???
As you can guess we've had another rainy day. But I am glad my son had a great trip yesterday. The rain didn't come till later. It's been kind of one day sun and one day rain lately.
We all are having a day off tomorrow and I am looking forward to (hopefully) some extra sleep. I cross my fingers that my dogs won't wake too early! Having a puppy is like having a baby again... :)

Have a lovely day. By the way, your Tilda card is really sweet. Love the background stamp.

Hugs, Kristin :)
