Wow, can you believe that my month guest spot with the Midnight Madness gals has come to an end! I sure had a great time, and I feel so fondly for everyone on this wonderful team for their support and welcoming nature. They are a great bunch of ladies and I want to thank each and every one of them for the swell time they showed me this month.

I loved the sketch this week, had a blast working with it. I got to use an old favorite stamp, by Rubber Street Stamp Co. I love the face on this wonderful Garden Nymph!

Butterfly cut from Mariposa paper stack and stickled. The webbing was done with gold pearls by Kaiser and Gold sparkly ribbon.

Isn't she beautiful!

Birdcage and bird is by Myra Road. I colored it black with Copics and glittered it with night sky.

Flowers are by Prima

Papers are from the DCWV paper stack Mariposa, beautiful butterfly papers!

The finished card and envelope. This highly embellished card slides right into that 3/4 inch thick envelope, no problem...........and what a presentation. Priscilla's store, where this envelope template can be purchased, is the sponsor for the month of March. She is giving away some awesome merchandise, you should go check it out here.

I bought that stack knowing full well I would never be able to slice a single piece of it, just too pretty to cover up, I will use it as wallpaper instead...

Now this is quite pleasant, that sweet little pixie nestled amoungst these fabulous elements, birds, butterflies and more, what a wonderful exit you are making from your guest run at MMSC, it was a pleasure seeing you on the main stage, though I know we will still get to see you creating with their fabuloso sketches.

Are you ready for easter? Are the grandkids excited or have they gotten too old for the visit from Peter Cottontail?

Priscilla said...

Hi Sue, awww I am so sad to read this post. Time just flew by huh? You were an awesome MM Diva..thank you so much. Your card and envy are amazing as always. I just have to tell you that your talent blows me away. I remember you made a Lion card awhile back and I must have come to your blog to look at it 20 times. You are and exceptional person and talent. Thank you for playing the Team Madness with us this last month :)

This is stunning is absolutely every single detail from beginning to end. This includes the envelope. You have left no paper unturned. I am just in awe at all of the detail and beautiful embellishments.
We had such a fun month with you, Sue!! I hate to see you go. I hope you can come back again sometime. Will still be around to visit you and see your lovely creations and have some great memories of the fun that we all shared during your visit with us this month.

Happy Easter,
Hugs and blessings to you,
