as if I needed a reason.....

to keep drinking coke or pepsi!! Now I can say I need the cans :)
this was CASEd but I'm sorry I can't remember whose it was - but the original used DSP.
I wanted to do this for my second swap, but the only current DSP I had was Just Add Cake, and it just looked wrong, so I made my own using Vintage Vogue.
I love this card! It feels like spring!
the butterflies are made using soda cans, and I have a BAG full ready to be made into who knows what!! I have a few mobiles hanging around too, and I'll show you those another day.

the answers my friend....

are blowing in the wind.... I am obsessed with making windmills (or pinwheels) at the moment. I made a whole heap from (now retired) Play Date and Celebrations DSP to make a mobile for Connor's room - which looks awesome if I do say so myself, so I must take a photo and put it on here. but anyway.... I wanted to use them on my swaps so this is what I ended up with.
The windmill is made using Just Add Cake DSP - start with a 2 1/2" square and go here for directions. Simple as :)

rosettes are everywhere.....

I can't believe it has taken me SO long to give them a go! They look really tricky, and I HATE fiddling round with bits trying to get them to stick in the right place, but then .. Heather Summers to the rescue again! (This woman is a LEGEND! honestly!!) - there is a trick to these flowers - and it is twine!! So..... after watching this little gem of a video, this is one of the make and takes we did at my catalogue launch today.
The card itself is a copy of one I saw on the sample boards at the Big Day Out Product day in Auckland last weekend, and uses the free set we got Under the Big Top. This is not a set I would normally choose, but seeing the cute things we did with it (and no I wont be showing those - they need to be a surprise for the others who haven't had their regional yet!) I kinda like it! And I LOVE this card!
The rosette uses the Melon Mambo Designer Series paper stack - love those papers!!
