Fusion & House of Cards ~ I Am

Well hello there! Did you have a fabulous Friday? I had another snuggled filled day with my little Sweet P. It was a lovely warm sunny day, so we had ourselves a walk! Lots of birds chirping, pretty daffodils, fragrant hyacinths and trees beginning to show signs of life with their teeny little leaves! God's beautiful world inspired me to create something this evening. And Fusion provided me with a sketch.



It seems like I waited an eternity and a day for these PTI butterfly dies to come back in stock. I've used them in place of the circles in the sketch. The sentiment was already on my DP and I think God will be pleased. A sprinkling of PPP Metallic Gold 4mm Sequins add just the right amout of sparkle. This was quick to make and I love the way it turned out. It was well worth the wait for my butterflies!

I'll link this up at the House of Cards too where my butterflies fit their challenge!


Have a wonderful weekend ~ Lisa
