All Hail Ye Merry Dancers and Fairies

You know life is too hectic when you have a bag of goodies from Archiver's sitting untouched and unpacked for a week! Miss Amy gave me a very generous gift certificate to Archiver's for Christmas! It has been burning a hole in my purse so Sunday sissy Gail chauffeured me out to the store and I finally got to use that puppy!

Yes, I was in Omaha. One of the students that I drove to the Omaha airport two weeks ago needed a ride back to campus. Luckily her flight was timed just perfect enough for me to squeeze in sister time and a trip to Archiver's.

My new boss started Monday. The early reviews are in and they are over-the-top positive. YEAH!!!!

I haven't had much time for cards this week - new boss to impress you know. I'm just kidding - this is my busy time of the school year. Seniors are gearing up for graduation - that means re'sume review after re'sume review after re'sume review...

Here are a few cards from the Bubble. Challenge card for Kraftin' Kimmie (use button and bows) and The Pink Elephant use green.

Ye Merry Lotus Dance~Base card Paper Trey Ink Soft Stone
~Layer of K&Co. Amy Butler Lotus
~Image by Kraftin' Kimmie Holly; stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI Soft Stone; colored with Copics, bodice lace-up darkened in with black gel ink, 'halo' topped with Stickles Fruit Punch
~Sentiment from Just Right, stamped on cardstock punched using Stampin' Up Word Window
~Heart button threaded with blue metallic thread

This is another two-challenge card. The challenge at Cute Card Thursday was to feature the color green. The card above works for this too but the greens and blues are fairly evenly distributed. This one doesn't completely scream green - but the green does 'pop'! Flutter By Wednesday posted a picture for inspiration. Since their picture features Tinkerbell and a flurry of glitter I thought this image was perfect: fairy...books...glitter.

Tinkering with Books
~Base card Paper Trey Ink White Cardstock
~Layer of Making Memories Cheeky Collection - edges smudged with pink ink
~Layers of cardstocks - edges curved using paper punch

~Polka dot ribbon supported with two layers of cardstock with their edges inked with pink
~Ribbon threaded through Stampin' Up Hodgepodge Hardware

Well...the good news's NOT snowing! The yucky news's hailing. Hail is really LOUD as it lands on ice-crusted snow piles!

You can get up close with the card by clicking on the image.
That's all for now!
