Blossom Word Block

Welcome to my new follower Tania B, leave me a message so I can follow you too. Today at Catch the Bug we have a new release which is Blossom Word Block. I did two different variations of this image. I had a lot of fun with it. First, I pulled out my distress oxide inks and did some smooshing of the inks.  I added some bling to the butterfly in the image and then added to die cut butterflies along with some enamel dots.  I ran a strip of washi tape diagonal across the patterned paper. For the second card, I used my Copic Markers and colored the image and high lighted the word blossom. I added a doily and ribbon. It just makes me hopeful for spring.

Update on the sad side, yesterday I got the bad news that my wonderful cat was not responding to the treatment at the UW Veterinary Clinic at noon.They now believe that she had lymphoma. So I finished work with a required meeting I had then I went to pick Jazzy up and brought her home so that her sister from the same litter would have a chance to say good-bye. We then we to our regular vet and my little girl is now in heaven with my husband. I sent her with an extra kiss to give to him since I know that she will cuddle up with him and give him my kiss.

Oh no, Lisa Lynn, this is so sad, actually heartbreaking. Jazzy was a beautiful girl and I know you have a lot of fun and happy memories of her. Please know I'm thinking of you and sending lots of hugs. On a happier note, both of your cards are beautiful! I like the two variations that you did to showcase the beautiful image.
