Swallowtail and a new video!

It's an overcast and chilly day today in NE Arkansas.  I have another workshop tonight, so I've finished cutting, setting up and cleaning.  I'm waiting on someone to come pick up our old mattress set after John gets home and helps me haul it downstairs.  Our new one came in last week and although I love it, it's a little firm.  Does anyone have a good suggestion for a topper?  I've been researching this morning and am thinking about a wool one.  If you have a suggestion - email me!

We have lots of great new kits in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  I've already shared a video on the Perpetual Birthday Calendar Kit, so I thought today I would share a video on the Build a Bouquet Project Kit.  I love these gorgeous flowers.  Not only do they look great in a bouquet, but they're perfect for cards, box and bag toppers, tags, pins/boutonnieres and more!  Remember that you can't watch the video in the email.  You need to click on the blog title to watch.  Enjoy!

Today's sample is from CrEW Stamper Janet Hathcoat.  Janet made her own ink pad with a baby wipe dotted with several ink refill colors.  We made wreath cards using this technique in the fall, but it also looks fabulous on this butterfly.

Aren't the colors fabulous?!

Here's a little closer look.
