Monday Sunshine and Jillibean

Happy Monday!

How was you weekend?  Ours was fantastic!  How could it not be terrific with World Card Making Day 2012.  I really got in the spirit of things and got crazy with the mojo flowing on my cards.  So this week I am having a special week with all my cards.  I want to thank so many of you for all the positive comments that you left this weekend on my Card found Here.  Your comments really really meant a lot to me.  I have been wanting to try new things and get back into coloring and you guys just really made my day!  Thanks so much!!

Last Friday I was surprised when I went blog hopping in the morning and found my Birthday Card on Jillibean's blog. I was so honored that they wanted to highlight my card.  I used the new collection Grandma's Lima Bean Soup.  I used a Silhouette Jillibean Soup image and then made my own embellishment center by layering all the different papers.  I added a little butterfly and wrapped some twine from The Stringery.  I stamped my sentiment and attached it under the butterfly.  I also added some sewing on each of the rays and then added some buttons.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be back tomorrow with a new card!  See you then!  Have a wonderful and crafty day!
