Butterflies and Snowy days

I didn't create all day like I wanted to.
But I did get to make a card :)
This is the second image that I had found that I forgot I had coloured up :)
I am not sure if I am totally happy with this card. I do like it, but I was planning on putting a flower that I had made with my new flower die. I made the flower, but it just didn't look right on here.

Not sure when I had coloured this cute little Magnolia girl up, but I do know I used my Copic markers.
I punched out the butterflies and added some rhinestones to their bodies.
I used this large doily that Dena had sent me, thanks Dena.
The top note die cut was given to me from my friend Lynne last weekend. I glimmer misted it to add some colour.

I stamped a sentiment on this tiny doily. This is one of the new dies that I bought on our last trip. Isn't it so cute.

This is the inside of the card.
I used the cute tiny doily again :)

Look what we received this morning...yup snow :(
Ashley took this photo on her IPhone. She took this early in the morning on her way to work. I missed the snow falling as I was still in bed ;)
I am so impressed with how clear these photos are. 

When I took Kristy to school, the snow had stopped and the sun was coming up.
It was melted by lunch time.

Onto My Day:
I ended up replying to some old emails most of the day.
I have been so busy this summer that I am behind..way behind on my emails.
I reply to every comment on my blog daily. I reply to every comment on my YouTube and every time someone comments or subs to my channel. Well I was behind...I spent most of today replying and can you believe I am still behind. Wow.

I hope you all have had a creative Thursday :)
It felt nice to get into the scrap/craft room, but I think I need to re-organize in there to get in to the full creative swing of things.

Tracy :)


  1. I got to spend time in my scrap room today too! And we had a skiff of snow on the ground this morning too! I like the tiny doily die!

  2. Ptolemy on the snow! Glad that it melted though. That wee doily is too cute and a sweet accent for your Magnolia girl!

  3. Your card is super cute! You did such a good job with your Copics. I'm still learning.

  4. you got in the craftroom? Lucky you, I am there on the pc and nothing creative happening here. I wish.
    Love, love this card my friend. The goth one is way cool too.
    Big hugs,Pea

  10. very cute card!
    We haven't had snow yet, but it sure feels like it's on the way.

  11. A lovely card Tracy really like how youve done the inside with the same theme. Snow... what a thought, we have very heavy rain with us and we have been issued with flood alerts although our house is ok but my friends live down beside the river so a bit of a worry for them. Enjoy your weekend and hope you manage to fit in some crafting time. Aud x

  12. This is such a cute card! I love the doilu!

    That is crazy about the snow! We are going to have rain, I think (of course, it was predicted for tomorrow, but looks like it is coming right now...not good as I have to walk almost a mile to the train to get home!)

  13. Oh my goodness, the sight of that snow makes my bones hurt. love your coloring.

  14. I love the tiny doilies, so cute and the big one too :)! But at least it melted by lunch! You are so awesome to reply to all of your comments, I know everyone appreciates it :) Maybe we need to have a reorganization challenge to get our rooms in order...

  15. Beautiful card! I'm not a big fan of snow!

  16. I love how you matted the stamped girl. Those teeny butterflies are the perfect complimentary size too! Nice card!

  17. She is such a cutie and love how you've colored her up and the doily is fantastic. Ugggh's pretty at first and then it seems like it never ends:)


  18. Great photos your daughter took with her phone. The first snow of the season. Big fluffy flakes that won't last long.....for now.

    Love our cute, cute card. Keep the sweet days of summer just a bit longer :D

    I'm way behind in my emails, too. I have a lot to catch up on and that is why your mailbox will be attached :-(

    Love you - Leslie

  19. Adorable card butterflies are too cute.

  20. Wow, I don't know how you find the time to reply to everyone! Love your card...please don't share the snow!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
