Control Freaks Blog Hop for March!

Good Evening! Welcome to the Control Freaks March Blog Hop! Our theme this month is "Spring Has Sprung"! Well, for some of us it has but for others like me, we received another foot of snow on Sunday and another six on Tuesday. I don't think spring will be here until June at the rate we have been going. I am so ready for spring!

You may have arrived here from the talented LeeAnn Greff's blog or if you are starting the tour with me, I will direct you to the next stop at the bottom of my post.

This month, I made three cards. This first card uses the "Painted Petals" stamp set from the 2015 Occasions Catalog:

I also created a matching envelope with my Envelope Punch Board because this card measures 7" x 4-1/4". I used the "Rock n Roll" technique on my flowers:

Card #2 uses the  "Butterfly Basics" stamp set that is also from the 2015 Occasions Catalog and the Butterfly Thinlits Dies:

I have 2 layers of butterflies stacked on top of each other and I also hand-cut all of the flowers you see in the background and paper pieced them!

And for my third card, I made a "Clean & Simple" card:

The Painted Petals Designer Paper did all the work for me. All I needed was a butterfly from the Butterfly Basics Stamp set, cut with the Butterfly Thinlits Dies, some sequins and a sentiment and my card was complete!

I now will forward you on to the wonderful Justin Krieger's blog. I can't wait to see the projects he created this month! Enjoy the tour!
