Macaron Monday - how are you inspired? come play along...

Ok... so I am tired of rain.  Boy have we had our share this month.  So I am trying a different approach today.... let's brighten things up and see what happens ;)

Can you believe it.... I scrapped!  I do love to scrapbook... just limited time for crafting so cards fit in best :)  I am going to try to make Sunday morning my scrappy Sunday but we shall see about that.  

Anyways, the inspiration photo reminded me of these fun photos I have of my grand daughter from last year's visit to Butterfly World.  She loved it.  She desperately wanted to pet a butterfly.  The papers from the Crate Paper Open Book collection were perfect. 
I fussy cut all of the rose clusters and the little sayings scattered here and there, from one of the pattern papers.  The title is cut using a Silhouette cut.  

I also added a stamped background using a Unity butterfly stamp and the ink splatters are from the Gorgeous Grunge set by Stampin' UP! - which is retiring so be sure to nab it! I then added a couple of vellum butterflies.  

Of course nothing is complete (in my book) without some stitching :)

Need some butterflies in your life.... check out these best selling wraps!

Rain, rain go away.... yes we have definitely had our share of rain and we are ready for some spring sunshine... however...

If I was sporting this look, I think I could handle the rain just a little longer :)

Macaron Monday Link Up

How cute are these macarons?
Be sure to click on photo for source, but not before you play along ;)

When I saw the inspiration I knew I had to create a couple of cards using my Homestead Collection by Authentique, which of course paired up nicely with some of my stamps.

First up I used Sassy Bessie by Unity.  I had fun paper piecing her.  

I used a MFT die for the fence and the talking bubble is from PTI.

I was inspired by this sketch.... of course the fence covers up the rolling hills :)

Next up I had to use these Stampin' UP! cuties again, and paired them with a SugarPea sentiment. 

Of course I had to share some Jamberry cuteness to go along with the cute Macarons.  Did you know that we had wraps in children's sizes?  Yep... from ages 3 to about 8 these should fit!  Be sure to click on the photo for the whole collection.
