Getting Cricky Design Team Post

Happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the first weekend in December!! How can it be December already?? My gosh, this year has flown by!! It's my design team day at Getting Cricky and I have a card to share with you  :)


The base of the card is heavyweight cardstock from Canvas Corp. The green paper is from The Paper Studio. The next layer was embossed with a Tim Holtz Texture Fade embossing folder and adorned with Recollection Gems. The butterflies are Spellbinders Fanciful Flight dies, cut in paper from my stash and popped up with foam tape for dimension. The ribbon is from May Arts. The tag is a Spellbinders Labels and Tags die. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts stamp set:


I just checked, and there are still a few of these sets left. Head on over to Getting Cricky and pick up any stamp set at 60% off while supplies last!!


I am entering this in the following challenges: 
  1. Crafty Friends #11 - Photo Challenge (see below)
  2. DL.Art Thankful Thursday Challenge - Anything Goes 
  3. Sunday Funday #3 - Linky Party

ALSO, I wanted to let everyone know that I had to change the way I followed blogs. I was subscribed by email to so many blogs, I was getting like 200 emails a day in my inbox and it was totally overwhelming me. So I created a hidden page on my blog to list the feeds of all the blogs I follow (my dashboard is never reliable). Now I can go there and see who has a new post up, and it's so much quicker than waiting for an email update. So in case you get a notice, I am still following everyone's blogs, just not by email. I lost a couple of followers who I guess thought I quit following them, but I haven't. This way just makes it so much easier to keep up to date with your posts and to keep my inbox from overflowing.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! And please stop back soon...it's time for a giveaway!! Have a great weekend :)

Karen said...

oh Lisa love the saturated color of the butterflies on the white lovely. Hope you have a great weekend. Karen

Shelly said...

This is gorgeous Lisa - what great colors! Very fun and cheery! The embossing is so neat, what a great folder. I keep forgetting I bought some K.Andrew stamps. I think I may have this set. Oh my goodness I need to organize myself better:) I LOVE the sentiment.
Have a GREAT weekend my sweet friend! Enjoy the sunshine, hope it sticks around for you!
Shelly

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, this is exquisite! The embossing is astounding.. I've never owned a Texture Fade folder, but that must change soon. The rainbow of butterflies is truly stunning and so uplifting... and their placement is perfect. Fluttering in the same direction, but slightly different angles. It looks so much more authentic with gorgeous placement as such. :o) The sprinkling of sparkles on the embossing and the sweet flutterbys makes this all the more lovely. Every part of this masterpiece is spectacular. :o)

And... I must say something. If the couple of followers you lost were because they thought you weren't following them, then they're not the type you want anyway! :o) Obviously it's their loss.. maybe it's merely people who nixed their blogs and no longer exist. Regardless, you're amazing and nothing else matters. :o) Have a sparkly, twinkly weekend, my dear Lisa! I hope you have some crafty fun. :o)

HUGE hugs and blessings!
