Happy Friday, hope you have some fun planned for this weekend. I have to get out and tend to my much neglected garden. I have been invaded by Canadian thistle and it is making me crazy. If you have any tips on getting rid of it without using pesticides please let me know. We have well water and I don't like using chemicals if I don't have to so at this point I am using the good old fashioned hand weeding method. Oh my aching back!

This weeks FFF challenge is to make something using a piece of jewelry as inspiration (and don't forget the bling!). Since I don't wear anything except my wedding/engagement ring, I went on an Etsy search and found this wonderful piece by bionicunicorn. I love the old fashioned charm and vintage feel, if I did wear jewelry I would have bought this in a second.
Obviously, I used the lacy butterfly and peach color for my easel card. The butterfly was cut out using my cricut and a free SVG file made by the amazingly talented and generous PENNY DUNCAN. You can find it HERE. CHEEKY BEAUTY is ready to take off on a magical ride.
Hope to see your sparkling projects, have a great weekend!

Seriously I always think your last creation has to be the best you could do and then the next one wows me even more!!! I adore this card and the inspiration piece was perfectly captured in your creation!!!

AMAZING Girl!!!!

Sorry I am so late getting around from last week. This Baby Growing in my Belly has gotten big enough it is hard to sit and leave comments cause I can’t breath very well when I have to sit in that position LOL!!!
