Southern Belle

Don't forget there is still time to enter 
May's Challenge and the 500 follower goal is closer....
so please spread the word.

Wow it has been over a week since my last post and so much has happened in that week.  First of all I spent time dodging the multiple tornadoes that touched down here in Texas...and then, managed to survive the wind, rain and hail that lasted for hours.  But after hours of watching and waiting it all died down and the earth stood still again.  I peeked outside and it appeared to be okay with a few branches thrown here and there...decided to clean up the yard after the sun came up.

When the sun appeared, I took time to clean up a few branches before getting back into my routine which including fighting traffic to get to work.  But later when I returned home I had a pleasant surprise...new stuff sitting at my door waiting to be opened.

As usual when I get something new, I have to play and test it out therefore I spent time just cutting different things with my new Marianne and Spellbinder dies.  So now I have a basket full of die cuts that I hope will at some point find their way to a card or page layout.

Today I am going to share a card where I used a couple of my new dies.   Hope you like it or find it interesting.

Oh wow I love what you did with your new ties. The mustard and black is a lovely colour combo.
I cant believe your talking about tornadoes as a matter of fact and are so calm about it. We here in South Africa dont get to see tornadoes, perhaps one every 50 years. Relieved to hear you survived the latest weather onslaught.

This is fabulous! I love your dies and the design of your card with the pretty flowers on the bottom. I have to ask, is the girl a die or a digi? The reason I ask is it's hard for me to tell and for our challenge at Digi Haven we do require a digi image or sentiment on your creation to be eligible for the prize drawing. You can email me if you like to let me know. strefger{at}gmail{dot}come. Thanks so much and thank you for joining us at Digi Haven!
