Muse Marion Challenge #114 And some super fun news!

I admire Marion's style so much... if you haven't played cards with her yet this week at Muse, please do... you're going to love her inspiration:



Clean, crisp, bright and lovely.. and a butterfly that I happen to know a few of you adore =]

This week I will have the honor and pleasure of 'playing cards' with one of my card-making blog-friends here in Michigan... we've never met, and have really been looking forward to this day!  Are you ready for this?  Happy to say that the sweet, talented, and lovely Bobby of Bits n Pieces is coming to my house on Wednesday!!  *Insert squealing here*

My Photo

I happen to know that Bobby and I share the love of Hummingbirds - so Marion, I hope you don't mind if I substitute your butterfly, with our favorite winged friend?

I've taken a little nudge from Ardyth's style again this week... using:

The Paper Studio's Wood embossing folder
Memory Box Lovely Peony Outline die
Wplus9 Flora & Fauna stamps and die
Plus a tiny little selective embossing with Ranger Gold

Must go... lots to do to prepare for Ms. Bobby!!  What's that?  You'd like to join us?  Come on over!!!  I'll have the coffee/tea ready!  Oh, and sugar water for the Hummingbirds!

Until then... I'll be watching for your own Marion-inspired cards!

Your card is just wonderful, and how lucky you and Bobby are--you will have such a great time together. I knew about Bobby's love of owls, but not of hummingbirds. I will stop by next time I am in the neighborhood too.
