Butterfly Card

Since we have been site seeing for a few days  (you can view at http://ggsreflections.blogspot.com/), I haven't crafted too much but I did make this butterfly card the other night.  I used the Cricuit Ashlyn's Alphabet cartridge for the butterfly and Lacey Labels Lite cartridge for the circle.

The patterned background paper is from DCWV Glitter Sweet Matstack, the solid background is from The Paper Studio Pearlized Cardstock and the butterfly and lacey circle are cut from Bazzill Basics Paper Dotted Swiss. I also used The Paper Studio Gemstones Purple Assortment, and stickles.

Sorry about the flash.

Memorial Day

I am  proud  to say we are retired military.  My husband spent 20+ years in the military and mostly in the Infantry.  Even before I married, my parents had a special place in their hearts for military personnel.  Now, we are so proud of our son-in-law and family.  My daughter has a special blog today.  You can view at the following link.  http://belovedsbride.blogspot.com/.

Monogram Cards Plus

These are cards I made a few days ago but because I didn't have internet service, I am just now posting.  We are in OK at Tinker AFB Famcamp, but guess what----their internet service is down. My MiFi is slow.

On this afternoon (Sunday - Mother's Day) we just stayed around the camper after church.  I made a couple of cards and Glenn was doing some leather craft.  The outdoors was so relaxing.  Great light to craft by.

After crafting for awhile, we took the Bostons for a walk.

This was a steep climb.

Wild turkeys roam the park.

David Crockett State Park is a beautiful park located in Lawrenceburg, TN.
We extended our stay a couple of days, but on Wednesday we will go toward  Memphis.
Hoping we can cross the Mississippi River but it is flooding.

We are on our RV journey out West.  I hope to post cards, and embroidery projects as I do them but sometime my internet service is limited and very slow.

If you care to follow along on our journey, you can keep up at my other blog, http://www.ggsreflections.blogspot.com/

I also started another blog and I thought I would just use it for crafts, but I haven't really made the transition. That blog is http://www.craftingbygigi.blogspot.com/. I don't know how to transfer my few followers to my crafting blog. I'm not even sure it is possible. I just thought a different address name would be better for the crafts.

Here is another Mother's Day card.

I just loved the butterfly paper from The Paper Studio, Poteeka Souffle.
It is the 4.5" x 6.5" paper pack and  has some nice glittery paper.

Mother's Day Cards

Most of these cards were made with The Paper Studio pack Poteeka Souffle.  Love all the papers in this pack.  I also used a paper doily and Prima flowers and Fiskers punch. The butterfly embellishments are from Recollections I think.
