A whirlwind of fun...

I have a couple of exciting things to share:

First... Finished this card last night after playing with my spellbinders die cut and some fun Memory Box stamps.

I had seen a gorgeous and I mean stunning card on Yvonne's blog here: http://yvonne-anabelle.blogspot.com/2009/11/serendipity-november-challenge.html. I have this stamp too and am re-inspired to use it for my Christmas cards. (Will share if and when they are created).

I used the same Fleur De Lis die cut and cut 12 from a Memory Box card which I had stamped with a Memory box flourish stamp in Stonewashed dye ink.

The flowers are Memory Box - Black Eyed Susan E422 stamped in versafine black onyx and colored using watercolor pencils. I used the same colors on the butterflies (memory box - periwinkle B1181)

I sponged the outer circle to give it the orange-yellow effect to match the butterflies and flowers.

Second exciting news:

Tim Holtz started his 12 days of tags today... So much inspiration in techniques all jammed into 12 days. Also he has wonderful prizes so go check that out. I think I am going to try to play along as it fits in with the HA blog challenge this week and Louise's tag Tuesday challenge too!

My card is posted on the Moxie Fab World as a Tuesday Trigger! and as a bonus I also won a pack of paper from another post on Cathy's blog.

So I am having a wonderful day.. I hope you are too!
