Friends & Prayers....

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone!
We are on the last day of the Month!
Geez, what happen to March? Seems like yesterday
was January 1st! Before we know it Summer will be here! YIKES!

I was watching a few videos over the Easter Weekend and
decided to play with some of my new crafty things - 
I tried to make it a CAS Card because I have a 
hard time doing those - I prefer layers :)

So here's what I created to share with you today -



I really like how this turned out except for the lavender Butterfly
In hindsight I would have left it white too! :) 
But that's how we learn - 
I certainly wasn't going to throw it away just because of that! :)




Because I liked the way this turned out so much that I made
another card using some other colors -




Now, I think this one turned out so lovely - I just love it! :)
It pays to Practice, Practice, Practice!!! (Wink Wink)

Oh Theresa, I am beyond in love with these beautiful cards! Your backgrounds are stunning, as are the flowers and butterflies. :o) I love the sentiment choices and the pretty base dies you chose. I am so happy you experimented because these truly bring sunshine to my heart. In fact, these are amongst my favorites from you. They are exquisite, Theresa!
I am thankful to be visiting you, sweet friend. I once again had to step away from crafting and commenting to care for some health and family situations. I dislike being behind like this and will be playing more catch up throughout the weekend. Thank you for your patient love during this tough year.

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
