June 4, 2017
The mid-week challenge at wecraftcards was TicTacToe. The three “ingredients” I selected were lace, sentiment and flowers. The butterfly is from a stash of my mom's treasures that were passed down to me when she passed away several years ago.The flowers are on background paper, which I colored with markers.) Oh, and I hand-stitched the butterfly to colored vellum to add some translucent color to the butterfly wings.

For my next card, I printed a free clip art pocket watch (found here http://www.clipartbest.com/clipart-4cb8RkXcg0) onto vellum. Scripture verse is printed off on my computer.

Used one of my favorite retires SU set to make a baby card. Punched the images out and mounted them on my card to enter the card into SS Circle challenge.

The next challenge was to select three “ingredients” from a Bingo-type board to incorporate into a card. I selected along the top line options- chipboard, flowers and shaped base to make a purse card. The inside of the card includes the bottom of a small school lunch bag to hold a gift card or small treats inside of the “purse.” You can find a tutorial and some lovely samples for this purse here http://lilsweetpeasplace.blogspot.com/2010/07/paper-bag-purse-tutorial.html

    1. Stacy... I hand-stitched the butterfly to the vellum backing! My sweet mom, or one of her many crafty friends, had made the butterfly. I think it is either crocheted or tatted. (I can never tell the difference!)
