Some Pretty Things To Share

Hi everyone!  It's been awhile since I posted (sigh).  Gardening and outside stuff having eating my time up.  I'm sure it's the same story for everyone else!  I'm not complaining, I love to plant and pot flowers, because it takes my mind somewhere else and I created a lovely butterfly garden which turned out so cute.  I share photos later.  Anyway, I have been doing a little bit of creating, particularly right before bed.  Not sure why, but I get a second wind around 9-10 o'clock pm.  Is it me or does anyone else get that "second wind?"  :) Below are a few creations for challenges and swaps that I participated in.  Have a wonderful week and thanks for looking!

The card below is what I made for this month's Lunagirl Moonbeams challenge.  The theme is "mother."

I also participated in my first pocket letter swap!  This is so much fun!  This swap was hosted by the  Lunagirl Facebook Page.  If you're interested in swapping pocket letters, click on the Lunagirl link and the Facebook link will be in that post.  The theme was "Fabulous Faces."  My swap swap partner was Corinne.  Below is the gorgeous pocket letter she created for me.

This is what I created for Corinne.

I'm also sharing three weeks of Tag Tuesday tags.  The tags are "holes", "wildflowers" and "music."

I also created another tag with some scrap stickers that I had know idea what to do with, so I created this cute tag.

I'm linking my post up to Stephanie's beautiful and inspirational Roses of Inspiration Linkup #20.  There's always beauty and inspiration to be found on Stephanie's blog, so please take a peek!

Hi Kelly! I love seeing your creations, each one more fabulous than the last. Never heard of a pocket letter, but both of them are beautiful.

I love my garden too, and it sure is time consuming, but worth it. :)

I get that second wind too late in the evening. Some time that becomes my best work.

Your work is stunning. As mentioned in my mother's day post, butterflies have special meaning to me. Can't wait for you to share the garden.

I know what you mean, there is so much to do outside, especially in the spring time, with all the planting and weeding, and trying to keep up with the grass growing so fast, it gets better as the summer goes on around here. Your creations are just lovely, especially love the tags, such pretty designs and great embellishing!!
Have a wonderful week!

Hi Kelly, have been staring at your paperworks lately, they´re so beautiful! I haven´t done paperart for almost 4 decades now. As far as I can think, the last time was in high school and I made an album full of the cut out letters and those stuff...

Thank you for reminding me how wonderful paper arts are.. keepit up!

A wonderful Tuesday afternoon to you!
