Welcome to another edition of the Wednesday Evening Post. What a crazy week this has been! We got up to 80 degrees here in Indianapolis yesterday. . .Just imagine that we had 8 inches of snow 2 1/2 weeks ago. Talk about weather extremes! I did see my first butterfly today!!! So I think Spring is here to stay. We are supposedly in for some rough weather tonight and tomorrow with possible tornadoes. Never a dull moment. . .Throw in my monitor dying, a huge, unexpected tax bill, and fighting with Jay's medical providers and insurance companies brought another wonderful week in paradise! On with the cards I did manage to make this week!
Gina K Designs kind of inspired this one for me. She had a video out where she did a resist technique that used dragonflies. So I got my dragonfly stamps out to make this one. The main dragonfly is embossed with copper embossing powder. You can also see that part of the matting I did includes some metallic copper card stock. The smaller dragonflies were stamped in random order using distress ink. Simple card I created for a guy. He is the mortgage loan officer at our credit union who is simply an angel among men. He is one of the most helpful, friendly, pleasant people I have ever worked with. Throw in some remarkable customer service skills and you have him (I honestly don't think he is human, he is too perfect). I made this for him because he helped me with a homeowner insurance problem.
My next card was for a woman at the same credit union who was also instrumental in the above mentioned problem. I stopped at a local high end bakery and got them each some cupcakes as a thank you for their help and the cards were delivered with the treats.
Sorry, I should have warned you to put on sun glasses to view this one. Can we all say together "screaming banana"?? LOL I don't know why it looks so bright in the photo. . .It really doesn't look this "neon" in real life. But it has the same kind of layout as the first one and had a bug on it too. . . You really can't see it in the photo, but the main butterfly is cut out and stands 3-D from the card. I also used some Stickles on it for some sparkle.

Well, that's it for this post. Kind of boring. . .However, I noticed that my hit counter is now approaching 100,000 visits and I'm almost to my 275th post, and my blog will celebrate its 5 year anniversary on April 26th! So I think that sounds like a reason to celebrate with a give away soon huh? I can't believe I've been doing this for almost 5 years! Anyway, give away details will be coming in subsequent posts. . .stay tuned!
Hope this post finds you all well and happy and safe. I think I made it around to all of you who have left comments and then some! You guys do some really amazing stuff and are such an inspiration to me! I love visiting each of you!
