Made it Monday - yesterday :-)

Happy Monday everyone.

The girls are back in school after having March break last week.  Now they have two short weeks because of Easter weekend.

I spent some time in the craft room yesterday, in between laundry loads. Didn't have time to take photo's yesterday so did them this morning.

Polkadoodles newest collections are available for pre-order purchase, to be released on the 31 March :-) They are gorgeous, if you love florals you will love these.  If you click on the pictures they will appear bigger :-)

There are also two new polymer stamp sets that compliment these new releases, called Lavender Tea Stamp Soup and Lemonade Fizz Stamp Soup.  All available for  pre-order now. 

Anyways, on to my post for today.  Grab a coffee, or tea if you prefer, and sit awhile :-)

I started off yesterday by cutting out some of the flowers and butterflies, off each of the above sets. Then I added Glossy Accents to all the different sizes.

Then was the fun part of making up the following gifts.  After layering the flowers and butterflies.  These little frames are just 3" square, with the inner square being 1.5" :-)

Using Lavender Tea

Using Lemonade Fizz

I did ink all the edges of all the layers before adding the Glossy Accents. The worst part for me doing this project was waiting for the Glossy Accents to dry!

I used some Flourish with a Bling Pearl dots for the bodies of the butterflies.

For the butterfly antennae I use some stamen from some little teeny flowers that I had and inked them up :-)

I will have more to show you as soon as I can get back in the craft room.  I'm a little behind in my commenting and visiting, but hope to catch up in the next few days.  Can't wait to see what you have all been up to :-)
