Another Day Another Card

 So yesterday it got up to 40 degrees here in NW Missouri and right now it is 18 with a wind chill of 7! Gotta love crazy Missouri weather right? And tomorrow we are in for another snowstorm of 4-7 inches! Oh my! I am hoping we at least go to school tomorrow to get in a half day! I am tired of my lesson plans looking like football plays with all the x's and lines drawn everywhere! I am previewing two new books for my kiddos   though, Sisters Grimm which is a series - I love series! I get very attached to characters! Some of my faves are Harry Potter and Percy Jackson for kids and Twilight and Shopaholic for older. And the other one is Granny Torelli Makes Soup - so if you know anything about these books, have comments, opinions, resources etc. please feel free to share!
And enough about work, onto today's card:
this is for the Viva la Verve challenge and it stretched me a bit!
It is a long skinny card - usually I just do standard and square so that was a challenge and then I didn't have rhinestones to match, which I was able to remedy by coloring some clear ones with my Adirondack alcohol markers!!!! I don't have that much Verve so I used Donna Downy for Unity for the stamps. The butterfly I cut and layered using my cricut. If you look closely you can see I glittered the butterfly up with rock candy stickles. Thanks for looking!



  1. I really like the DSP on this card. Very springy and pretty. Very pretty card. Wish the weather matched. :) No one at my house as read the books you are starting so let me know if they are good and worth reading. Always looking for new reading material.

  2. Very pretty! I like it!
    Haven't read either book....

  3. Very pretty card. I like the lavender, green and yellow together. Pretty and springy. Is springy a word?

  4. good way to improve with the rhinestones and I love the different look of a long card!

  5. Pretty card Tessa! I like the different shape and the glittered butterfly.

  6. Tessa, this card for VLV is absolutely stunning! I LOVE that Donna Downey sentiment and your colours are gorgeous. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog so I could discover yours!

  7. Oh this is so pretty Tessa!
    I love the colors and the way you combined the dp!
    Thank you for sharing with us!


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment! It makes my day!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
