A Card for Michelle

Hello Everyone,

This is has been a hectic week. My daughter & husband visited a little on there last few days of their vacation/leave. Ryan is in the Army and they’ve just received orders to go to Vilseck, Germany! I am so excited for her, & worried at the same time. My mind is whirling of all the things we need to do to get her ready. We lived 3 years Oschenfurt, Germany when my ex-husband was in the military. She was little at the time, and doesn’t remember much, but we toured our little city. Just me & her. God willing I’ll get to visit her and go back to where we once lived.
If you have a chance stop by & create a card for Michelle. OOh and check out her blog..she's an amazing artist. I've been reading her post, about her accident & she has such an awesome attitude. On to my card...Today’s card is for a few Challenges :

Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge- Card for Michelle
Digi by Whimsy Stamps especially made for Michelle
Glitter glue I got from Micheals in the kids area ;)

This card was created useing Paper Studio's So-Sweet Paper pack & Cricut's Hannah Montana's cartridge,an old stash of metallic ribbon, plus a little glitter glue to make it the butterfly sparkle. Had a great time showing Emily how to create a card useing a sketch.

Hello Everyone,
This week I'm a guest designer at Doodle Palace Tuesday Challenge June 29th - July 5th. I had fun creating the sketch and I used my cricut to cut out my sketch. This was my father’s day card to my Honey. I was so excited about making my first sketch that I couldn't sleep. When I woke up I had this sketch in my head so I went striaght to my craft room to get it down on paper. I created this card with my new digi from Doodle Palace, and I just love the way it came out.Thanks for stopping by. Now go to Doodle Palace and try the challenge.
