Truly Scrumptious Challenge # 30-April Showers

Hello and Happy Wednesday...the week is almost over again.....yikes life is flying by.
It's The Truly Scrumptious Challenge #30 this week...we have another fabby sketch by Mina and an additional, optional, challenge of "April Showers" theme, which is kinda funny for me because I live in Alberta, Canada-and we don't experience April Showers here....we experience April Flurries....seriously it's snowing right now.
Here is the sketch that our very own, very talented Mina created:

OKay so here are the details for today's card:
Paper is Close To My Heart-Caboodle-love this paper, it's so cute for kid's cards.
The image is Whipper Snapper, colored in with copics.
The flowers and tiny tabs are also Close To My Heart.
The buttons are Making Memories
I also did some machine stitching....I have to tell you I lOVE machine stitching on cards-it just finishes any card beautifully. :o)
Well I think thats about it.....make sure you check out the Truly Scrumptious Challenge blog to see what the other designer's came up with and you should play along with us this week-there is a super cute Pink Gems Designs image:

Isn't it an adorable image??? Check out The Pink Gem Designs site HERE to see all the adorable images they have. :o)

Dottie's World-Butterflies

Hello and Happy Easter Sunday!
We are off to church this morning to celebrate the resurrection of Christ-rejoice!
And then out for brunch and then off to Nana and Opa's for an Easter Egg Hunt. I'm looking forward to all the children getting dolled up in their Sunday best outfits. Time for pictures and celebrating. :o)
What do you do on Easter Sunday?
Well it's also my turn to host the Dottie's World Challenge for this week. I decided to do something Spring like and ask for 3d butterfly embellishments. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

I made my butterflies using the new SU! embossed it! So very pretty.
The Charmed Download I used is from the latest collection called Sugar and Spice-you can get it HERE
I used my new CratePaper again....I just love this paper! I promise I'll set it aside for the next few cards I make.....I just can't help it-I love it that much!
Ribbon is My Mind's Eye and the brads are CratePaper.

I think thats pretty much it.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a Happy Easter!
