Forever Friends For a Child

Happy Monday,

I hope everyone had a great weekend! They are just too short. I started my weekend with a wonderful dinner with my husband for our anniversary. We ate our favorite restaurant. Great coffee and awesome chocolate.  Here is my dessert. Doesn't it look delicious; it was. (Chocolate/Lemon)

Please join us for our last challenge as Forever Friends.  The theme is for a child. I created this chipboard butterfly keepsake. I used Viva Decor Inka Gold; the product is awesome. The product spreads like butter. I used a stencil and spread Viva Decor Modeling Cream. It creates a 3D effect. I colored this sweet image from A Day For Daisies with Copic Markers and used a silver pen to give her dress some shimmer and shine. If you are interested in this image Peacock Magic just click on her name and it takes you directly to the image. To embellish my project I used flowers, ribbon and a die cut butterfly. I hope I have inspired you today.

As we say goodbye to Forever Friends we are so excited about our new challenge "Crafty Friends Challenge Blog". Join us Saturday, June 1st for our 1st challenge. Oh, I heard there is some fabulous candy. Please be sure to check out the new blog. See you then!
