Penny Black Challenge Week 94

Good Morning & Happy Sunday to you! Thanks for stopping by. Today I'd like to share my entry in the Penny Black Challenge Week 94. This one was to use bees or butterflies. I chose butterflies. Here's my card:

A close look:
I used stamps from one of the new clear sets Purrrfect Day, picked it up at Archiver's a few weeks back, the background paper is embossed with Sizzix large flowers, the butterflies are from the MS punch the little green vines are from my stash of stuff but I believe they are from a button set & the square Nestabilities. Hope you have a great day!

Easter Projects

Hi Everyone! Hope all is well with you. I haven't had a whole lot of time to work on my projects this week, no energy either really. I did work on some magnets this past weekend though & I'm finally getting around to posting them... life...

Up close of all 3:

Not sure where I had gotten the bunny from, I know it was a freebie but I cannot remember from whom. If I can remember I'll post it.

Next the doggie from Karensdoodles:

Finally the Easter Egg Chick from Print Cut N Create:

They are made with Rectangle Nestabilities, cute little button brads to hold the acetate on the front to keep them clean, I place a piece of cardboard on the back as well to make them more sturdy. Thanks for coming by, I'll post my little Easter crayon boxes tomorrow :)
