Waiting Tilda for Joan's Challenge

I created this card for a monthly image challenge on SCS. Then, I read Joan's ( challenge today and think this card fits it perfectly. The challenge is to create a card using blue, peach (the rose buds at the top of the patterned paper are a shade of peach), butterflies, and something frilly (my lacey flower was created using frilly lace!).

More Workshop Fun At Joan's Gardens

This is the explosion box we created at the Saturday workshop hosted by Joan Fricker ( A gorgeous teacup is the surprise when the box lid is lifted. My cup is a little wonky because I didn't adhere the inside flaps at an angle. But the good news is I purchased the teacup die so I can make more cups correctly! The flowers were punched from vellum using the martha stewart hydrangea punches and a little sun punch bunch punchout for the center.

Workshop Fun At Joan's Gardens

This is one of the projects made on Saturday at a workshop hosted by Joan Fricker ( and her friend Selma (Selma lives in Washington state and was "with us" via Skype!) The flowers were created using "punch bunch" punches. The leaves were created using a sizzix die. Patterned paper is by Graphic 45.
We also made an explosion box; I'll upload a picture tomorrow that will show the box and the gorgeous surprise inside of it. :)

Friendship Quilt

Another card created for a PTI card swap on SCS. I used PTI cardstock for cardbase and layer. The quilt squares are punched using a 3/4 inch square punch from the PTI 6x6 patterned paper pack called Pink Patterns; it is layered on textured Bazzill pear cardstock. The cardbase layer and quilted panel are embossed with a PTI texture plate. Sentiment is from the PTI set In Bloom and the button is from my stash.
