Timeless Tuesday...bee you a bee or butterfly??




Well today's challenge at TT is to use a bee or butterfly on your card. As you can see I did the butterfly. I'm a bit off as usual as being the corny lady that I am, I thought this flower was an astor not a cone flower so coney me colored it to match the paper and so there! I guess I made an ass-tor out of myself because who ever saw a blueish astor or cone flower??? My card has the top section done with a sweet My Mind's Eye dotted paper of kind of aqua blue and the bottom was fancy doodled up with a SU embossing folder to give it that lacy look. My butterfly was a punch also from SU...me Bad I know but the cone flower is a Flourish stamp from the With Gratitude set so I'm safe I guess. Used my colored pencils as usual and made it all very simple. I bet you're asking how I did such a beautiful cutting job aren't you? Well my DD has the new wonderful machine that does all that glorious work for you and when I spotted it laying on the table ...I did a grab and run thingy. Not grab and run machine but just the cut out flower. The new machine is called a Sillouette ( I don't think I spelled that right but you get the idea) and you need to see more about it on the shop at Flourishes. Go take a peek and you'll probably be hooked.
Still hot here in the Big Sky country and I'm a little sick of it. We are to get a storm tonight for a cool off so I'm hoping the weather guy isn't blowing smoke up our butts. Have a fun week fellow bloggers.

ofePat, I love your blue cone flower. They can be any color you want them to be and this blue is beautiful. I went to order that stamp set from flourish yesterday and they were out of stock. They were also out of the Garden one. Do you have any idea how long it takes for them to re- stock because I want both of them and also the Country Road. The Aug releases are great. I wished I would of ordered the bundle when it was available. Mary L Schreiber

One of the beautiful things about creativity is you get to make anything any color you want. Kinda like when we were kids with crayons! So Coneflower or Aster...it doesn't matter, it is still beautiful! Well done!
