I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Flowers in a Frilly Vase

Ok...some of you might remember when I posted about my friend sending me ALL THOSE WONDERFUL GOODIES??  No reason...just wanted to send me some wonderful "toys".

Anyway...one of the items she sent me was the Spellbinders Filagree Vase.  She wanted to do a challenge using that die.  And here is my card...

 Stamp used is the Itty Bitty Charming Cone Flowers.  And don't forget...all the Itty Bitty's are on sale right now at 43% off.  I colored the flowers in with PrismaColor Colored Pencils.  The center flowers are embellished with Black Diamond Stickles.  Along with the flowers are cut pieces of the Leafy Branch by Impression Obsession and the Pine Branch Punch by Martha Stewart.  Little Dancing Butterflies by Memory Box flutter around the flowers while they are still nice and fresh in the vase tied with a cute gingham bow.  Finally...the corners of the card are punched using the Fiskars Sunflower Corner Punch/Embosser.  Thanks so much for looking. 

Below is another card I made using just dies.  I thought I would share it along with this card.  I really enjoyed making the card below.  It was a lot of detailed work...but it was fun :)
