3 Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden" cards!!

Hi people!!

Here are some cards I made using Pink Paislee's "Butterfly Garden" (designed by Jody Lee) paper collection! I bought my paper pack at my local "Craft Warehouse"! Love my store!! hehe


So, I just couldn't stop at one card...I kept going and made 3! I also have an altered project going using the same paper! wow...is all I can say! My first Pink Paislee project ever!! I've never used this company before....love it, but their style is a little different than what I'm used to and love...until this line came out! But I'll show the projects in a few days!

This if the first card I made! It's for my niece Cassie....Manny and I have been friends with her parents for a long time, my hubby and her dad served in the Navy way back in the day.....early 90's...so yeah, I've watched this beautiful girl and her twin siblings grow up...now 20 and in college!! It was her Birthday last month and they celebrated yesterday at their house so I made her a card! She loved it!

Here's the video:





 The 2nd card I made for my sweet friend Marie. She just lost her husband of 66 years and is the kind of lady who still smiled through her loss, knowing her husband was happy to be in heaven. She told me today..."I thought we would go together and he beat me to it", and she giggled and hugged me! I just could not use the "sympathy" sentiment on the card for her, instead I used one I felt more....her! I love you Ms Marie!


The 3rd card is for my swap partner Ms Caterina! She's from Germany and sent me some very cool goodies to play with...I'm still packing her box now! It's time to get it sent off...just need a couple more things! But I thought it was pretty and just right for her! Hi Caterina!!




Thanks everyone for dropping in and taking a peek. xo, Jules:)
