Sugar Creek Hollow & Gingerloft

I'm sorry ... I just can't help myself today!!!
I'll try to keep this post short & sweet!!!

I've been on a roll with completing my cards (inside & OUT) and since that's the challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow ... I just HAD to join in!!

This beautiful butterfly is a Sugar Creek Hollow image and you can find it and more HERE.  So you can see the inside of my card, here is another photo.  Please note also that the wings on the butterfly have been cut out & popped up from the original print.

 The designer paper I have used is by Making Memories (English Garden) 12x12 pack.  While I was "doing it all" ... I decided to make a matching envelope too ... really completes the package!!  I'll be doing more of this!!

The other card I'd like to share with you is for the Our Furry Friends challenge over on Gingerloft.  I have had this gorgeous bear image colored and laying on my table for WEEKS and when I saw the challenge theme today ... well you understand ... here it is:

My 'woodsy' dp is from DCWV and my only embellishment is Hemp.  I have used CHALK  & a makeup applicator for my coloring.  The inside reads "It's that time of year again!"
Here's a photo with it's matching envelope.  What an easy 'guy' card.  You don't need much when you start with a powerful image like this bear!

Well ... thanks again for taking a peek!  I promise ... NO MORE posts today!  In fact, I really need to go get my errands run before it's time for hubby to come home for dinner ... yikes ... you can sure loose track of time when you start creating!  Have a great day!!

Geesh, Darlene! Not only inside and out but a matching envelope TOO!! Someone's been busy. This is so pretty. What a great idea to pop up the inside portion of the wings. I always do the whole butterfly. I'll have to try this! I love that DP too. Wonderful card!
