Hope is a Winged Thing....

I design for Creative Charms, and absolutely LOVE designing for this amazing company! Midori is awesome, and their products are just simply fabulous! I can't wait every month for my envelope to come and see what is NEW! Waiting to get the kit & deal is like a treasure chest--I never know what is coming! I'm always thrilled when I open it up! When I opened up my package this month--it was filled with BUTTERFLIES!

Hope is a winged thing...I have always loved this poem by Emily Dickinson. I'm sure she is speaking of a bird in particular, but to me, hope is a winged thing--that takes flight in our souls and hearts. I think for this reason, I absolutely loved winged creatures of the sort...with birds and butterflies being a favored embellishment.

This month's kit of the month: Green with Envy is filled with fabulous winged beauties! I love the delicate whispery wings of both packs of these butterflies. For my projects today, I used this month's kit: Green with Envy which has sequined butterflies, dreamgarden butterflies, beautiful flowers, gemstones, and green dotted ribbon (oh and lots more too).

Each of my cards have a different tone, but all share the hues of green and butterflies. Each one is very simple to make, taking only a few minutes. Creative Charms is the perfect accent to making simple and quick cards! Each one of my cards feature a sentiment from My Pink Stamper's Buggy Punnies.
Happiness is a Butterfly

You're so Fly!
