Good Morning Folks,
How are you all doing today? I can't believe we are in the second week of April already and time is just flying by so quickly these days, don't you think? I've been busy with my sons activities the last few days and realised that in just 7 weeks his school year will be over! It doesn't seem that long ago that he was just getting ready to start first grade. Now he'll be getting ready for the SAT exams, which are coming up in a few weeks, then the end of year party and off for the summer! Phew, so many things to organize before that happens!! LOL
Over at Midnight Madness we are on sketch 99!!! Whooo hoo, how awesome is that to have almost 100 sketches under your belt!
This weeks sketch...it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between.
  Just have fun and come play with us :)

My card this week is using one of Shawne's adorable images. I've used this one before and will definately use it again as I just love it! I colored her in prismacolored pencils and copics. I added glittery green to the grass to give a little sparkle, added some bling and a couple of butterflies and a flower charm.
The stitching effect around the image was supposed to be real stitching but after not paying attention to the bobbin in the bottom of my sewing machine, I ended up with just the holes and no thread!!!! Oops. I like the effect though! 
Here's a closeup of one of the ribbons with butterfly and charm. 
This closeup shows the other ribbon and lace and of course this pretty butterfly!
I hope you will come along and play with us and join in the fun with the MM girls. Please take the time to stop by my DT sisters and leave them some love!
Have a fabulous day!
