April Showers.....

....bring May flowers, right?  That is what "they" say......  ;)  My daughter has been keeping me in full supply of daffodils from our yard - she picks a few almost daily.  At least we get to see them inside, right?  hehehe....

Well - I gotta tell  you - I loved the Create with Connie and Mary sketch so much this week - I decided to give it another try.  I also just got my Summer Mini Preview order yesterday.....and I had to play with that, right?  Here is a reminder of this week's sketch:

I might have to admit - I think I am getting addicted to sketches....for both cards and scrapbooking....have you noticed the pattern here?  lol!  Anyway - wanna see what I did this time???  Do ya? Do ya?  okay

Well - isn't that the sweetest little thing?  I know - no modesty here today - lol!  Can you spot the new goodies that will be in the summer mini????? 

Well....let's take a closer look - maybe you can pick up on some things:

Did you see that flower?????  OH MY - Wait until you get your hands on the new triple layer punches!!!  Yes - you heard me right - T.R.I.P.L.E. Layer........that means three differnt layers on ONE punch - oh, my head just spins!!!  This punch here is the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.....{luv} it! 

Look at all the dimension here - i {luv} dimension :)

There are more new things here though.....Did you notice the embossing I did for the stem and butterfly?  Oh yes!  That is right stampers - new COLORED EMBOSSING POWDERS!!!!  I used wild wasabi and melon mambo here - and ther is one more color that will be available.  wanna take a stab at what it might be???  NO?  Well, I will tell youthen......tangerine tango.  HELLO......{{awesome}}

Did you notice the thread that ties the flower and button together????  Another new sneak peek - white baker's twine - I just can't stand it!!!!

Other things to note:  The stamp set used here is bold blossom - such a sweet little flower set.  The butterfly was embossed onto velum card stock and cut out to give it a little bit of delicateness.  Oh my - I am so excited about this new mini cattie....wait until you see what I have to share tomorrow......
